Naked and scared has turned into semi-clothed and kind of spooked.

In southeastern Pennsylvania, a Halloween attraction’s heavily publicized plan to allow guests to go through one of its haunted houses in the buff was revised Thursday amid opposition from local officials.

Shocktoberfest, a popular seasonal attraction outside Reading, promoted the “Naked and Scared Challenge” as a way for thrill-seekers 18 and over to “expose” their fears and phobias by wandering through a haunted house completely nude.

But owner Pat Konopelski said officials in nearby Spring Township and Sinking Spring borough told him they weren’t comfortable with it. So, for now, he has agreed to require guests to wear underwear.

Konopelski said he hopes to work it out with municipal officials and offer an all-nude option next year.
