Philadelphia School of Circus presents: Haunted Circus Mansion

I had the pleasure of taking the fam bam with me to visit the Haunted Circus Mansion. It was a whirlwind of amazing surprises. The last time to visit is this weekend Friday October 25 and Saturday October 26th. Here is your behind the scenes look as a few major tips to make your visit more enjoyable! The St. Madeleine Sophie Church in West Airy is transformed into this amazing Halloween spectacular!

Friday Nights

This is for the adults only. Get a sitter or just grab your adult friends this is for you to kick back and enjoy some adult spooky fun. This is not for kids at all as the exhibits are amped to give you a haunted fill. Located inside the mansion will be a lot of scared to get you into the Halloween fun!!

There’s performances, an escape room, and a haunted trail. This is from 7-10!

Saturday Family Fun

Bring the family and decide to either wear costumes or not and enjoy performances, face painting, crafts, trick or treating on the second floor with a kid friendly escape room, and fun. Here are my tips so you can have a great time.

The trick or treat times are spread out through the night. It’s first come and first serve. So if you get there for example at 6pm your trick or treat time may not be until 7. In between those times you can enjoy the other fun activities while you wait. Pack some patience! This is a huge mansion with enough space for lots of kids. With that in mind bring cash if you want to purchase popcorn or water. It would be a great idea to feed the kids prior to coming. With the increase of children, it will get hot. Dress accordingly. Be courteous to staff. There will be staff dressed in costumes that some smaller children may find scary! It is meant for fun and not harm! During the trick or treat is a kid friendly walk through that is very Halloween related!

Kids love face painting but be prepared for lines! Same goes for the arts and crafts!

We elected to do the Escape Room. It was fun but my of course 4 year old niece wasn’t here for it. We were able to remove her so I wouldn’t suggest it for kids under 5! However for the rest of it we loved it!

And it is being done by the Philadelphia School of Circus so expect some amazing whirls and twirls! The talent of the performers is amazing and that’s from the oldest all the way to the youngest.

We also ran into Mina Say What…

No children were harmed and everyone left with a smile. So all roads lead to the Haunted Mansion…

May you bend your way over to Mt. Airy this weekend and have a great time!
