WEST CHESTER TWP. — Starting next month, EnterTRAINment Junction will transform into a circus.
On March 1, the train-centric attraction in West Chester Twp. plans to open the “A-Maze-N FunHouse,” replete with all kinds of circus-style attractions.
EnterTRAINment Junction is not adding to its existing facility at 7379 Squire Court, but has a new theme for its maze attractions to the left of the main entrance, said Bill Mefford, the publicist for the center.
“We add stuff (to our train displays) every day, but this is our first major expansion since 2008, when we opened,” he said.
Up to now, the 7,000 square feet of space in question was the home to two mazes that changed by season. They are being revamped into what EnterTRAINment Junction calls “the greatest funhouse on Earth.”
At the entrance, the bright colors, flashing lights and circus staples such as a coin-operated Zoltar fortune-telling machine, create atmosphere.
Past the entrance, there will be four tents: Curtain Chaos, Clown College, Mirror Maze and Outer Limits: Journey to the Black Hole.
The Mirror Maze is 2.5 times larger than the similar maze the junction had when it opened. Similarly, Curtain Chaos will have hanging curtains throughout its maze, and this also is larger than a similar maze that was in place at the junction’s opening.
Clown College has rooms filled with practical jokes and optical illusions, such as an Ames Rooms, in which people seem to grow or shrink just by walking across the room.
In the Outer Limits room, visitors head into a spinning vortex, through which they escape via a “claustrophobia room.”
These attractions replace the Victorian Village walk-through. The Journey to the North Pole Christmas maze will still figure in the holiday season, Mefford said.
For the month of March, admission to the funhouse attractions will be $4.95. After that, regular admission will be $9.95.
