This one is not for the faint of heart. “The Scariest Haunted House in New Jersey” by The Star-Ledger two years in a row and listed as one of the most terrifying in the nation by Buzzfeed. Get ready to let them play on every one of your fears; claustrophobic, separation anxiety, clowns, and more. We have recently brought the horror to the next level, renovating our attraction and doubling the walk-through path. Visitors may have to climb up, jump over, crawl through, and spin around what lurks inside the haunted house for a spine-chilling, interactive experience. They don’t use animatronics but use 100’s of actors that scare from start to finish of their 40,000 sqft building. Also a frightening spin on the escape room idea, and interactive zombie shoot. NOT TO BE MISSED!
Tickets: $22.00 (Discounts available for Military Service and Student ID’s, check website for more details)

All Hallows’ Evenings at the Stickley Museum

Tour begins as night falls. But there’s no need to be frightened! By the 1910s, Halloween, not yet a holiday for children, was a night for amusement and superstition, mischief and fortune telling. Victorian era sensibilities had transformed traditional macabre customs associated with the night into playful parlor games and tricks, which provided a clever guise for match-making and romance at society parties. Light refreshments will follow to keep your spirits up!
Tickets: $5 for Members $12 for Non-Members
