Posted by: NJ Kids Team - October 09, 2013


Where to find the best haunted hayrides, haunted houses, ghost tours and more 

Halloween is right around the corner, so get  ready to be scared! New Jersey has got a graveyard full of haunted hayrides, haunted houses, ghost tours and more  - but they're not for the faint of heart (or the very young!) If you're looking for a haunted house, check out Bane Haunted House  in Rockaway with 25 rooms of sheer terror or Great Adventure Fright Fest in Jackson. There's The Haunted Prison in Mount Holly, a Haunted Seaport in Tuckerton, and a Stadium of Screams at Riverfront Stadium in Newark. Take a fun, mysterious journey into a shadowy, prehistoric world. Explore the dark woods and haunted trails of Snake Hill at  Field Station Dinosaur.   Or climb aboard a haunted hayride at the Field of Terror  in East Windsor or Haunted Hayride of Terror at C Casola Farms in Marlboro. And this is just the frightful beginning. For more terrifying ideas, click here to check out our website  - but only if you have what it takes.  Enter....if you dare!
