Castle Blood, Monessen, PA

Castle Blood: Halloween Adventure Tour

100 Schoonmaker Avenue, Monessen, PA 15062

The MacCabre Family will return for their 26th year, 7th at their Monessen location! Note that the location changed a few years ago from Bealsville to Monessen. Castle Blood has a new theme and adventure tour each year (like “Night of the Vampire, the Dark is Calling” and “Beware the Moon”). Each year there are new attractions to the tour, which is more of an interactive experience and not as much of a “blood and gore” traditional haunted house. Known for it’s grand special effects, Castle Blood is sure to please as “Pennsylvania’s Most Unusual Haunted Attraction”. The MacCabre Family actually lived on site at the old location, and are known to stay in character year round – they even hosted their own late night TV show, “The Midnight Monster Hop.” Read the entire legend of the Castle at their website.– Read More…
