“Brainzzzzzz” – and here we thought zombies would never reach the city.
The spawn of New York City monsters, zombies and ghouls are increasing as we get closer and closer to halloween night. These creatures need a place to roam and we know exactly where to find them. Buzz Tonight is excited to announce this year’s list of haunted houses in NYC. Don’t be scared…
New York Haunted Hayride
Randall’s Island / See the official site
Best for: Hayrides, demonic possessions
New York Haunted Hayride opens its fortress to those willing to travel to Randall’s Island Park. These gates were first opened in Las Angeles, CA and are now spawning around Randall’s Island throughout all of October. Make your way around this legendary hayride adventure but trust no one, that is, if you’re looking to make it out in one piece.
163 Varick Street / See the official site
Best for: Blood thirsty zombies, torture chambers
Blood Manor is a 5,000 square foot multi-room torture chamber located in the safe, but increasingly scary, South Village. When it comes to production value, there’s little to the imagination. This haunted house pushes the limits with horrifying rooms, acts and blood…so much blood. If you’re looking for a legitimate scare, this is the place to go.
Time’s Square / See the official site
Best for: Year-round nightmares, frightful cocktails
Located near Time’s Square, this haunted house is one of few open year-round on the east coast. Expect this frightful experience to pick up ten-fold during the month of October, with extra special combo deals featuring frightfully good cocktails, you can expect emotions to intensify. We recommend coming with a large group, but if you’re planning on going alone you can expect to be paired up with random strangers (if you want).
Bane Haunted House
Livingston, NJ / See the official site
Best for: Long distance frights, Scary road trips
The list couldn’t be complete without Bane Haunted House, located an hour away in Livingston, NJ. If you’re up for the road trip, grab a few of your friends, get a rental car and head to this single giant house full of horror. Voted the scariest haunted house in New Jersey, and not too far off the beaten path, you’re sure to have a scare. This haunted house features over 70 actors interacting with the crowd and making sure you leave with nightmares for days.
Gravesend Inn Haunted Hotel
Voorhees Theatre, Brooklyn / See the official site
Best for: High-tech interactions, $8 scares
Theatreworks’ high-tech haunted hotel returns again this year. Gravesend Inn is a high-tech, theme-park quality attraction located in Brooklyn. Afraid of high-tech contraptions? Surely robots won’t take over the world and end human life as we know it. This attraction is open every Thursday, Friday and Saturday leading up to Halloween and is sure to make an electric impression.
