Halloween is on a Saturday this year, and you know what that means! There will be plenty of daylight hours available to get set for the scary, morbid fun to come when the sun goes down. The Jersey Shore has plenty of creepy attractions for just about everyone, from relaxed non-scary family events to some of the creepiest and most twisted haunted houses and ghost walks out there. It's enough to scare the pants off even the most hardened cynic.
Get out this weekend and enjoy some of the local attractions put on by your neighbors. We present to you the top 5 events worth checking out in the Jersey Shore area this coming up weekend.
A full weekend of fun halloween-themed events designed to be enjoyed by the whole family! Check out the interactive dance that kicks off the festivities on Friday night with plenty of games and prizes to be won. Then over the weekend, your whole family are invited to experience free music with a halloween twist! Plus all the rides and games you could ask for.
Get ready to run, so make sure to bring comfortable shoes. The 35-45 minute haunted walking trail has the potential to scare you right out of your boots! Be prepared to encounter dozens of scary scenes featuring the children of the night from the depth of your childhood nightmares. Admission is only $20.
In the tradition of the great American sideshow, the curious can experience a fascinating selection of freaks and oddities like you've never seen. Housed in a 7000 square-foot octagonal arena, guests will wander through the carnival tent encountering the event's stable of trained costumed performers. Prepare for a dose of the fascinating, unusual and downright terrifying. The event runs every weekend through the month of October, admission is $15 for adults, $8 for children for each attraction.
Actually made up of two separate events; thrill-seekers can check out Sinister Sneed's Chaotic Carnival of Chaos and The Forbidden, the inbred and nearly dead! The event is $15 per person, or $25 for a combo pass. The carnival is a terrifying fair hosted by a host of helpless souls enslaved by the devil.
Perhaps even more terrifying, the Forbidden is a chilling walk-through of Miller's Mill, a seemingly idyllic summertime dream camp, but you'll soon discover appearances can be deceiving! Both events run each Friday and Saturday night in October, and every night of the week leading up to Halloween.
Set on a one-hundred-year-old abandoned military base, the facility was once used for top-secret experiments into radio, radar, satellite and more. For the month of October, the base has been transformed into an interactive horror extravaganza. Come explore further, if you dare. The attraction is open every Friday and Saturday night in October from 7 top 11pm, admission is $17, with a special group rate of $12 per person for groups of 10 or more.
