- GRAVESTONE MANOR THEATRICAL HAUNTED HOUSE
Benefit for United Way of Wyoming Valley
Trion takes pride in annually hosting Gravestone Manor Theatrical Haunted House in warehouse space at our facility at 1095 Highway 315, Plains, Pennsylvania. Gravestone Manor is arguably Pennsylvania’s most unique haunted house attraction. The Manor is a theatrical presentation, where the audience joins the cast—traveling through an elaborate set. More akin to a play than a traditional haunted house, there are still plenty of scares. As a matter of fact, Gravestone Manor is not intended for children under 8 years of age. The attraction is designed, constructed and staffed entirely by volunteers who donate their time in support of raising money for the United Way of Wyoming Valley. So far Gravestone Manor has raised over $120,000.00 for charities in the region.
Gravestone Manor typically runs weekends through late September and the month of October. Tickets are available at the door and there is plenty of offstreet parking in a well illuminated parking lot. Come join the fun.
