SINKING SPRING, Pa. (AP) -- Municipal officials in southeastern Pennsylvania are spooked over a Halloween attraction's plan to let guests go through one of its haunted houses in the buff.

The Shocktoberfest seasonal attraction in Berks County had been advertising what organizers billed as the "Naked and Scared Challenge." They planned to allow guests 18 and over experience a haunted house completely nude.

The popular "scream park" occupies parts of Spring Township and Sinking Spring borough. Owner Pat Konopelski says officials in both communities expressed their opposition to the Naked and Scared Challenge, so he's going to alter the event and require people to wear underwear.

He says he hopes to work with officials and offer a fully nude option next year.
