Spooky Halloween Family Fun in New Jersey
With Halloween right around the corner, you may be looking for some spooky or fun outings to get you in the mood. Here are some scary and sweet options for you and your family.
Bane Haunted House has been named the scariest haunted house in New Jersey for five years in a row by The Star Ledger and the most terrifying by Buzzfeed. They insist on you separating from your party and guarantee to play on all your fears. With 100+ live actors prepared to make you scream and shriek, this interactive experience will require visitors to climb up, jump over and crawl through their 40,000 square foot building.
Field of Terror is another horrifying outing for your family in New Jersey. This farm is a place where genetic experiments went awry; where Farmer Frank experimented with creating a greater form of human life and attempted to cross the genetics of local townspeople and his crops. His misfits now roam the farm with zombies of all shapes and sizes. Four unique terror filled attractions and night activities like Circus of Terror Paintball are just some of your options at Field of Terror, sure to get your adrenaline pumping. They also provide cozy bonfires, DJ music and night pumpkin picking for the youngsters.
Another outdoorsy Halloween family outing is the Annual Scarecrow Stroll in Cranford, New Jersey. Bring the kids as they’ll marvel at all the scarecrows built, conceived and displayed in the windows of the local shops and businesses. Enjoy the restaurants, ice creams shops and top notch kid’s consignment store as you stroll downtown Cranford and choose your favorite scarecrow.
The Brighton Asylum featured on the Today Show boasts the scariest, most interactive attraction in New Jersey. Shut down in 1952 after mysterious staff and patient disappearances, the asylum was fully renovated in 2016, now features horrifying escape rooms, their newest attraction,“The Bleeding Grounds” and award winning sets. Ride their 75 year old unreliable, often violent elevator system or prepare to undergo a series of tests by Brighton’s own research team.
