On any given day there are at least 50 different things to do in New York City but when it comes to October New York City tends to go on overdrive. Expect thousand of events every single day and of course epic parties on Halloween. But before October 31st make sure to enjoy some of the spooky offerings of New York, starting with its haunted houses. Finding street parking long enough to enjoy a haunted house can be hard, so book your parking in advance with ParkWhiz so you can get scared in peace.
I am a huge fan of the gore and the headless zombies chasing you the chainsaw or a machete so here is my list of the must go to haunted houses in NYC throughout October.
- Blood Manor is arguably the best-haunted house in New York City. Groups of 6 enter a 5,000 square foot mansion and begin to explore. Each room has its own theme and you never know what will jump out at you or better yet tap you on your shoulder! This is the go-to haunted house so make sure to purchase your tickets online ahead of time and use the Parkwhiz app to find easy cheap parking.
- The BlackOut Experience is a one of a kind experience. The experience does offer group entry but make sure you plan properly because on Sundays visitors must enter the attraction alone with a flashlight. Expect a lot of random taps and touches with this attraction. Visitors must be 18 or older and sign a waiver before entering. Don’t fret though; they do give a safe word for when things get too scary. The NYC dates are not listed yet but keep checking the website and company’s Facebook page. I expect an opening around the 21st of October.
- NYC Nightmare Horror usually offers a theatrical haunted house but this year the makers are shifting their focus to a series of terror filled plays. Expect a new level of horror and closeness with the plays and unlike traditional haunted houses you can’t run away!
- Time Scare is perfect for large groups with different scare meters. This year-round-haunted attraction offers a lot of themes within one floor. Be prepared to experience all of your fears and whatever you do don’t run! No really don’t run, that is one of the rules of the haunted house. Enjoy!
