Hundred Acres Manor
Now through November 2 | Hundred Acres Drive

(Bethel Park 15102) 
Hundred Acres Manor is now open for its 11th season of scares! Pittsburgh’s premier haunted house is not only revered by those of us residing in the ‘Burgh: in 2013, it was named “Pittsburgh’s Best Haunted House” by Haunt World Magazine and one of “America’s Scariest Halloween Attractions” by the Travel Channel in 2013. 2014 brings an all-new interactive attraction to Hundred Acres Manor: Zombie Paintball! Fight back by shooting live actors and upgrade your weapons to defend against live “zombies.” Proceeds benefit Homeless Children’s Education Fund and Animal Friends. But as the Travel Channel said, "don't let all that goodwill from Hundred Acres Manor fool you. Their top priority is to take you to the edge of sanity than throw you over the edge into abyss.”
