PHILADELPHIA, PA — As the sunlight wanes and the moon takes center stage in Philadelphia’s night sky, some prefer to replace the traditional pint of green beer for a dash of emerald horror. On March 16, Philadelphia’s Lincoln Mill Haunted House, renowned for its spooktacular delights, will be gifting thrill-seekers with a unique Irish-themed phantasmagoria.

After the horrors from Halloween, the ghouls of Christmas, and the woes of Valentine’s, Lincoln Mill Haunted House is upping the ante with “A St. Paddy’s Nightmare.” This one-night-only event promises to leave its guests, brave enough to traverse the dark chambers, shaking in their shamrock boots.

While merry parade-goers clad in green party on the streets above, visitors of 4100 Main Street in Manayunk will face a haunting descent into the darkness. The hidden bowels of this mill will come alive with animatronic frights, special effects, and a carefully crafted, immersive storyline set in a terrifying realm of leprechauns, banshees, and goblins.

For a chilling $32, over 30 scare actors will serve up a heart-thumping spectacle that leaves most horror movies in the dust. If you dare to join them, make your way between 7:00 pm and 9:30 pm, but be prepared for a frightful encounter with the inhabitants of the mill.

Jared Bilsak, Lincoln Mill Haunted House’s Co-Founder, believes that St. Patrick’s Day, usually teeming with parades and libations, is ripe for a different kind of celebration. Drawing inspiration from Celtic mythology and Philadelphia’s own rich Irish history, their new venture aims to provide a unique, chilling experience.

The Lincoln Mill story digs deep into Philadelphia’s roots, spinning a tale about Irish immigrant workers in the city’s textile mills. In this story, a fearful mill owner’s nightmares come to life as his workers transform into menacing Celtic creatures.

Along with the change in narrative, visitors should prepare for a complete overhaul of the lighting and design. Gone are the hallmarks of previous events, replaced now with a distinctly Irish influenced horror story under a cascade of green light.

Those in search of a complete St. Patrick’s Day package need not worry. The Lincoln Mill premises offer food and beverages, with the famous New Ridge Brewing Company providing an additional draught of festivities.

Access to this ghoulish experience is diverse and convenient. Visitors can arrive via car, train, bus, Uber, or Lyft, with a range of parking options available for those driving. Two train stops, Wissahickon Station and Manayunk Station, are both within walking distance from the haunt.

Crafting the Lincoln Mill Haunted House’s spine-tingling narrative is a team of creative geniuses, Brian Corcodilos, and Jared Bilsak – both successful entrepreneurs in their areas of expertise. They took their college-years’ dream of running ‘Ravenkill Mansion’, a haunted house on their college campus, and turned it into a living nightmare for Philadelphians.

Embracing their fears of a flood-struck establishment due to Hurricane Ida, the pair turned the obstacle into an opportunity. Using the catastrophe as the premise for their backstory, they launched Lincoln Mill Haunted House in October 2022. The response? A resounding success that has only amplified their resolve to keep the scares coming.

So, ready to swap the pint for a scream this St. Paddy’s Day? You know where to find your fright. Look for tickets and further information at www.lincolnmillhaunt.com.
