Festive fall activities for students

Thrills and chills await visitors of Six Flags’ Fright Fest every year. The spooky characters stay away from visitors during the day, but once night falls the park transforms and terror awaits at every turn — and drop. Guests can expect haunted rides, terrifying trails and many performances by the talented cast of ghosts, ghouls and freak show acts.


For those who are less about the thrills and chills of Halloween and would rather celebrate the fall season, there’s Terhune Orchards in Princeton, a 200-acre farm owned by Gary and Pam Mount. Open year-round, Terhune Orchards encourages guests to pick their own berries, apples, pumpkins and flowers, depending on what’s in season. Bring your friends and family and enjoy the crisp autumn weather with apple and pumpkin picking, a corn stalk maze, a petting zoo and fresh apple cider donuts.


Terror Behind the Walls, Eastern State Penitentiary’s annual Halloween event, allows its guests to travel through prison halls haunted by ghosts and inhabited by actors in full costume and makeup. The 200-year-old prison has supposedly been haunted since the 1940s.


Murder on Cue Murder Mystery comes to Rider’s Mercer Room in Daly’s tonight at 10 p.m. This interactive event involves students and professional actors alike, all improvising and trying to solve a murder most foul. The Murder Mystery is sponsored by the Office of Campus Life and the Student Government Association. This live action roleplay activity revolves around participants seeking to discover motive, weapon or opportunity while attempting to ferret out the identity of the murderer. Each character receives information about either motive, weapon or opportunity, but the murderer is the only participant to receive all three. Everyone interviews one another and investigates all suspects to hopefully identify the perpetrator.
