Electroshock Entertainment has a sincere appreciation for the history of the haunt business, with a specific interest in haunts that once operated in Northeast, PA.

gravesidesingers.jpgNortheast Pennsylvania is rich in “haunted history,” and some of the most iconic, groundbreaking attractions formed the foundation for today’s industry.  The Lehman Haunted Barn provided intense scares for over twenty-two seasons in the Back-Mountain area of Luzerne County, PA. Located in Lehman, PA, the attraction initially was in the basement of a local church and then moved into a barn owned by a Mr. Jon Pineno. Once grounded in its infamous location, each season dedicated haunters created iconic characters and scenes that will forever be the discussion of legend.
