Historic Philadelphia’s all-access passes entertain and educate with a week of mini golf, carousel rides and glimpses into the past at the Betsy Ross House and Liberty 360’s wraparound theater. Passholders visit the birthplace and childhood tree house of the American flag at the Betsy Ross House, open 10 a.m.–3 p.m. daily. The 250-year-old home features seven period rooms furnished with antiques, Ross family objects, and interactive exhibits that bring Ross’s story and era to life. Liberty 360, a 15-minute film hosted by a 3-D Benjamin Franklin, immerses audiences in an adventure through American symbols that scrolls across an 8-foot-high wraparound screen.
Meanwhile, Franklin Square pairs ghosts and greens for Spooky Mini Golf on October weekend nights from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Music, fog, and eerie lighting set the stage for club swingers of all ages to evict poltergeists from their native holes with clubs, balls, and perfect aim. Across the square, the Philadelphia Park Liberty Carousel whirls riders past pumpkins, cornstalks, and falling leaves while borne on bald eagles, sea dragons, or Halloween-candy sugar highs.
