PA Haunted House Dares People to Walk Through Naked [Updated]

Shocktoberfest in Sinking Spring wants to know if you have the balls to enter in the buff.

Shocktoberfest, the “haunted scream park” in Sinking Spring, Pa., is challenging guests to walk through one of its haunted houses in the buff. Here are the details: 

Inspired by the hit show Naked and Afraid on the Discovery channel, Shocktoberfest has created The Naked and Scared Challenge to test your fears and phobias on a whole new level. For the first time ever you can now experience the Unknown Haunted House totally naked! …

The Naked and Scared Challenge allows participants to go through The Unknown haunted house nude or prude (either totally nude or with underwear). It takes place at the end of the night after all customers have gone through the attraction. Participants must be 18 years of age or older and must sign a waiver. Participants undress in a semi-private preshow building, experience the Unknown Haunted House, and then exist into a semi-private fenced courtyard where they will get dressed. Participants are never in view of minors or non-participating customers. Naked and Scared Challenge is not offered on Sundays.


Shocktoberfest has created this experience so their customers can explore a new level of fear. This is about fear and pushing oneself out of their comfort zone. This is not about sex. No sexual misconduct, inappropriate or disrespectful behavior will be tolerated.

It goes on the state that "there is an additional cleaning charge if we scare the p*ss out of you."

So what do you think? Would you do it?

UPDATE [10/2/2013, 7:50 a.m.]: Shocktoberfest cancels plans to allow guests to travel through its haunted house naked after local township officials get all up in arms about it. There's still an option to walk through in your undies, though! More on the new plans here.

    what a great idea that will never happen. Good thing our government knows what we need more than we do!
    I am starving and need to pee, but I haven’t been told if I should do anything about that…and it’s after 2am, so i’m pretty sure that means I am supposed to be in bed? Although I got out of work twenty minutes ago..so im not tired? Maybe i should get a beer? Oh, Pennsylvania knows best again! I should just sit at home, alone, and not have a beer, and wait to be told when I can pee and take off my pants?

    What do i do next, Pennsylvania?? I feel like I should take a breath, because I am getting dizzy..but I haven’t heard that it’s ok yet…I think I have to wait until 11am to breath? Oh no wait, that’s when I can pee! GASP!!! wow, I really needed that oxygen! Why didn’t Pennsylvania let me know I should breath more often? Wait , what time is it? am I supposed to be eating? Or sleeping?
    PLEASE Pennsylvania! If you want to control some parts of my life, why can;t you PLEASE control all parts of my life? Can you hear me PA??
    Should I pee or breath or eat?
    I worked 10 hours and I know you don’t think I should have a beer because…umm…because…ummm…well, you feel it’s not the right time?
    Another new PA Bill passed: Don’t leave your car on the street without someone in it, because sometimes people will steal cars.
    You know what? How about we just ban all cars? then no one will steal them!!
