Penn State Theme Park Engineering Group & Forensic Science Club To Host Haunted Houses Starting October 20

Penn State’s Theme Park Engineering Group (TPEG) and Forensic Science Club will host their annual haunted house on campus beginning on Friday, October 20.

The haunted house, called “The Best of Stephen King,” will be held at Pine and Spruce Cottages on campus. The theme will highlight both written and visual work by Stephen King.

Tickets are $4.99 and are available for purchase at the door, and cash is the preferred method of payment.

The operating hours for the haunted house are as follows:

  • Friday, October 20 — 8 p.m. to midnight
  • Saturday, October 21 — 7 p.m. to midnight

A kids’ hour will take place in the first half hour of each evening, from 8 to 8:30 p.m. on Friday and 7 to 7:30 p.m. on Saturday. The scares will be dialed back during this time so that younger kids can enjoy the haunted house.

Attendees are encouraged to arrive at the event early, as tickets may sell out. Snacks will be sold to those waiting in line.

A portion of the proceeds from the weekend will go to the H.E.A.R.T. Foundation and Give Kids the World Village. The H.E.A.R.T. Foundation provides hope to victims of sexual assault through education, support, and positive change in laws. Give Kids the World Village provides a weeklong cost-free stay to families of children with critical illnesses from all over the globe.
