NCC Terror Behind the Walls at Eastern State Penitentiary
7 November 2015
REGISTRATIONS AFTER NOVEMBER 4, 2015, THERE IS NO GUARANTEE YOU WILL ENTER THE PRISON WITH OUR GROUP AT THE SAME TIME. YOU MAY ENTER AT A SEPARATE TIME. i.e. the main group enters at 1830hrs, but you may not enter until thereafter. It depends on if there are more tickets available for the 1830hrs time slot.
We will take our Bimmers to the City of Brotherly Love for some haunted fun and cheesesteaks.
We will visit the Terror Behind the Walls haunted house at Eastern State Penitentiary. PLEASE READ THEIR FAQ section. There are rules for attire and children. Cost for entry tix per person is $35.44. The parking is $15.49. This includes the parking garage, shuttle to and from the prison and the processing fees they charge.. Tickets will be purchased by the tourmeister in advance and dispersed. Because the lot next to the prison is small and not conducive to cars allergic to dings and scratches, we will park at the new Philadelphia Zoo garage. This is highly recommended. Last year this same Saturday, it was packed parking near the prison. The shuttle was easy and we got to the garage early enough we had the best parking spots from which to choose.

For our cheesesteaks we will stop by Max's Steaks. I grew up equidistant between NY & Philly. I have been to every popular known cheesesteak joint in Philly including the tourist traps, Pat's and Geno's. I have to say that by far Max's is one of the best. Of course, this conversation could turn into a which oil is best for my car, so I digress.
Max's however is not in the best neighborhood. Myself and Chapter President Paul have been there multiple times with our wives. We have not had any issues. When we did the visit with the NCC tour group, there were no issues either. Fun and friendly atmosphere. Max's has a great parking lot next door. Read the below reviews for more insight. Seating is extremely limited. If push comes to shove we can always head over to the Philly Zoo parking garage where we will park for the Haunted Prison and eat there. So bring a chair.
Once done eating feel free to take a stroll along the Schuylkill River down to the Museum of Art or take the shuttle until we have to make our way over to the prison..
We will depart noon from the IHOP at 15470 Annapolis Road, Bowie, MD 20715. Don't forget the EZ-Pass
