Halloween is a child's dream holiday - playing dress-up, eating candy, and telling ghost stories - it can't get better than that. But adults want in on the fun, too! Now is your chance to relive Halloween as you never have before, adult style. We've got some fun tricks and treats up our sleeves. Check them out!
Killers: A Nightmare Haunted House: This controversial haunted house is a must-see this Halloween. Steering away from traditional haunted houses, this one plays homage to both real and fictional serial killers. You won't get scary monsters popping out at you at every turn, but you'll get something much more frightening -- a look into the world of real-life killers. Patrons weave their way through trials, executions, feasts, and bloody hallways, interacting with the actors the whole way through. Brave souls can have a bloody X painted on their forehead to indicate they want to be touched by the actors. We recommend doing so to take advantage of the whole experience. The sets and special effects are remarkable, completely immersing you into the lives of Ted Bundy, Jack the Ripper, and even Dexter. As you wait to enter, check out the exhibit of paraphernalia from noted serial killers, including yearbook photos, drawings, and execution letters. This is one haunted house that will leave you shaking in your boots.
What once was started by a professor has now grown into five frightful tours. Get ready for Halloween by going on a haunted tour with the help of Ghosts of New York. Tour guides will tell of the immoral tales while you visit the sights on foot. So stop carving that pumpkin and back away from the knife. Try something new like an Edgar Allen Poe or Ghosts of Times Square tour.
