Haunted Houses in NYC

Haunted Houses in NYC

Nothing says Halloween like a good scare, and there are plenty of frights to be had in NYC—from haunted hayrides to ghostly hotels. Here are a few haunted attractions to check out around the city.

Blood Manor
On Varick Street, horror enthusiasts can visit this popular downtown Manhattan attraction—a maze of themed rooms, corridors and passageways that patrons traverse on foot, with ghouls hiding behind every turn. Tours of the attraction take place every hour, but those who don’t want to wait can purchase a “R.I.P” express entry ticket. Blood Manor is not recommended for kids under 14 years old.

Gravesend Inn Haunted Hotel
In downtown Brooklyn, fear-seeking folks can enjoy scares of the high-tech variety at the New York City College of Technology’s Voorhees Theatre—transformed into a haunted hotel. The attraction is produced by the college’s resident theatrical troupe, with extra help from the students and faculty in the Entertainment Technology Department.  

New York Haunted Hayride
This Los Angeles attraction has been terrorizing Halloween enthusiasts on the West Coast for the past seven years. This year, the haunted hayride has found a home in NYC’s Randall’s Island Park. Visitors can expect thrills and chills comparable to the West Coast version, with visitors riding a tractor-drawn, hay-filled wagon through the woods and encountering ghosts, demons and more along the way. The attraction is not recommended for anyone under eight years old.

Times Scare
In Midtown, this three-story attraction offers up Halloween-themed entertainment all year long. Of course, this frightening fun includes a haunted house. If you need a bit of liquid courage before this spooky tour, head to Times Scare’s Kill Bar for creative concoctions with interesting names like Dracula’s Kiss and Corpse Reviver.
