Pennhurst was good. It is well staffed, and everyone was nice. They had entertainment for people waiting in line (live band, fireworks, magician, fire eaters). The 'asylum' was well done, full of medically oriented scenes. It was lit enough so you wouldn't trip. The biggest downside: the pace was kinda fast and the walk through the tunnel at the end was long.
*Get there early (6:00-7:00) or you will be stuck in a long (3+hr) line.
*Buy the tickets there with a $5 coupon, they offer the same coupon online, but charge you $4.50 to process the ticket.
*Dress warm (of course)
