Due to the large number of ghosts they can hold, haunted houses are consistently scarier than cursed sleeping bags, possessed lean-tos, and ectoplasmic studio apartments. Bust a ghoul with today's deal: for $12, you get two tickets to Terror in the Country (regularly $12 each for ages 12 and up and $5 for children under 12), a sprawling haunted house located in Warren. Terror in the Country is open Fridays and Saturdays through the end of October, as well as October 24, October 31, and November 1. Hours are from 7 p.m.–11 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, and 7 p.m.–10 p.m. other nights. The food bank donation discount listed on the Terror in the Country website is not valid with this Groupon.
Like a spooky spider missing one leg, Terror in the Country offers up seven terrifying options for eliciting screams, shrieks, and shudders from visitors. Get bowled over by Bozos in the Unhinged Clown Territory, sidestep the silent-but-deadly reaches of Mime Alley, and run into some old friends in the Portal to Hell. Other scareas, each with their own back stories, are the Haunted Cemetery, the Chamber of Dolls, the Forest of Fate, and the Paths of Terror. There is no shortage of spooks for kooky kids and ambling elders alike, with creepy costumes and shocking special effects providing a troubling counterpoint to eye-watering acts of kindness from misunderstood wolfmen.
This mash of October medlum has plenty of ravishing real estate to accommodate hordes of haunt-jaunters, even hosting on-site eats and thirst quenchers for famished foragers (not included in today's Groupon). On busier nights, guests may encounter a bit of a wait, especially on Halloween or Nov. 1. Take a break from smashing pumpkins and experience the infinite sadness provided by Terror in the Country.
Children under the age of 12 must be accompanied by an adult.
