Known for its paranormal activity, Candy Land is located beneath the Devon Building at Pennhurst. State School and Hospital. This room was once used for occupational therapy.

Perhaps, once upon a time, the painted images were meant to bring the circus or fair to someone who hadn't the capacity to visit such a place or perhaps the intention was to bring a smile to a face.  But now in the dark recesses of the basement, the images are anything but serene. In fact, the images are creepy and surreal.
