"It was great, and worth the drive," said Kim Tremel of Reserve, who traveled about an hour with a large group of kids and other grown-ups to reach the 138+ year-old mansion, said to be haunted by the spirits of the past.
The stone mansion, which features its original slate roof, spiral staircase and stained glass windows, is the only "real" haunted house in Pennsylvania.
It's more than just a hautned house, it is a haunted experience. The scares within are balanced by the delights outside, as bold torches illuminate the path to the looming stone mansion.
A genuine 139+ year old stone mansion, set on two acres of land, is the unique setting for Demon House.
The ominous looking place must have been creepy even before it was transformed into a haunted house.
Demon House relies far more heavily on actors than animatronics, with a small skit or playlet enacted in most rooms. The actors are talented, and the longer performances gave them full scope to work hard - and successfully - at the scares. The dramatic setting alone is worth going, and the great acting and imaginative haunted decorations seal the deal.
You can wander the expansive grounds, before the main attraction or after; enjoying the heat of the bonfires and the comfort of shelters. There are concession stands with food and games, as well as an outdoor movie theater with continuous horror movies showings.
