This Halloween season, Philadelphia haunted houses and attractions are primed to welcome your tweens and teens for spooky adventures. We’ve gathered up all the best haunted houses, hotels, hospitals, ghost tours, zombie-filled amusement parks, horrifying hayrides, and creepy corn mazes for kids to attend. Many of these attractions use professional actors in heavy makeup and costume as witches, werewolves, skeletons, monsters, ghosts, and ghouls...popping out at guests from every unexpected corner. For the most part, they're not recommended for young children. Be sure to check each location's website for more info on dates and schedules, and enter if you dare!
