Deal: $3 off adult admission for Terror Behind the Walls

Fall is here and today is the opening day of Terror Behind the Walls at Eastern State Penitentiary. Terror Behind the Walls, America’s largest haunted house, celebrates its 20th year with the launch of two brand new, state-of-the-art attractions, a special Encore Night, and the return of the Eastern State After Dark VIP Tour. The event evolves every year, and the designers continue to create the most intriguing and scariest haunted house yet.

CREDIT: COURTESY EASTERN STATE PENITENTIARY

Located inside the walls of Eastern State Penitentiary, a real massive abandoned prison at 22nd Street and Fairmount Avenue in Philadelphia, PA, Terror Behind the Walls attracts over 100,000 visitors from around the world and is consistently ranked among the top 10 haunted attractions in the country. In 2011, Terror Behind the Walls runs on select evenings from September 23 through November 12.

Two New Attractions for 2011:
For the first time ever, the event designers are launching two brand new attractions in a single year, creating the largest and longest show in the event’s history.

  • The Gauntlet is a new, high energy opening attraction for the show, featuring overhead catwalks and custom props above a massive outdoor maze. 
  • The second new attraction, Break Out!, is a new finale to the show and consists of an outdoor scare zone in the final courtyard before visitors leave the event.

***CLOSED***Giveaway: Drink Neuro and 2 Tickets to Shecky’s Girls Night Out

Not sure if you’ve noticed but there’s a new drink in town! Neuro’s seven-flavor line crosses a variety of today’s most popular functional categories, including hydration, relaxation, calorie burning, and cognitive function. What’s inside the bottle is either non-carbonated or lightly carbonated depending on the function, each of which also has its own flavor pairing.

I was able to try out Neuro and all their different blends. It was nice to be able to go to my fridge and grab a drink blend that complemented my current mood. Here see for yourself:

  • NeuroSonic®: Mental energy, memory, concentration, focus. Brain fuel.
  • NeuroGasm®: Passion, increased blood flow. The “playful” kind of energy.
  • NeuroTrim®: Liquid willpower, curbs cravings, boosts metabolism.
  • NeuroSleep®: Bedtime drink, restful night sleep so you function at your best.
  • NeuroBliss®: Enhances mood, relieves stress and anxiety.
  • NeuroSport®: Replenishes critical electrolytes and minerals after exercise.
  • NeuroSun®: 1000 IU of Vitamin D, supports immune system and overall wellness.

Although I enjoyed all the blends one stood out to me more than the others. NeuroSun came in handy when I came down with a bad cold and I needed to get better ASAP. Packed with 1000 IU of Vitamin D in each bottle, NeuroSun provides the recommended daily amount of this essential vitamin, which protects the immune system, increases bone, heart and muscle health, naturally enhances mood and provides raw materials for the brain to function more efficiently. I highly recommend it!

Neuro can be found at Genuardi’s, 7-11, Fresh Grocer and more. Keep your eyes peeled because you can’t miss those unique bottles.

Every girl needs a Girls Night Out! At Shecky’s Girls Night Out discover unique designers, sip delectable drinks, and cap your night with some pretty pampering and glorious Goodie Bags! There will also be Neuro will on hand for everyone.

Alright ladies, I would love to give one of you an opportunity to have your fridge full of Neuro with a mix case of Neuro and 2 Tickets to Shecky’s Girls Night Out on Monday, Sept 26, 2011 from 5-10p at Crystal Tea Room at The Wanamaker Building.
