Halloween Schedule 2014

It's that time again. Since Halloween falls on Friday this year,  We've scheduled our annual "Open House" gathering  for Saturday November 1st 2014. The haunt will be up and running by 7pm,  You can come just to experience the haunt, Or stick around and enjoy the atmosphere. The event is BYO for those that wish to imbibe, but we will provide mixers. There will be snacks, appetizers,  and a main dish to quell your hunger. Dress warmly even though we'll have a couple of fire pits going. .

For fellow Haunters, this could be the last year to see our haunt at this size. Most of our partys happen the Saturday before Halloween.  It'll be 4 or 5 years before we have another party "After" Halloween, and we all know how busy ya'll are before the "Big Day". Hopefully we'll see some of our haunter friends again this year.

Frankenstorm Halloween 2012

What an unbelievable year it was. After 10 days without power, No Gas, Impassable streets, and all of the devastation, Our town finally elected to have Halloween almost 10 days late. It was  a real morale booster.  Hopefully 2013 will be better :)

Halloween Open House 2012 (Frankenstorm Blues)

    In the face of the Impending Frankenstorm, we had an fantastic turnout for our annual open house. Thanks to everyone who make the trek out!. Unfortunately I have No video's or pictures to show for it. It was a hurculean effort just to get the haunt up and running this year with all of the monumental changes. All I can say is we definately outdid ourseslves (yep a little bragging is in order). Finally we have a really good backbone for a walkthrough that we can build upon in the future years. All I can say is it was a resounding success and a really great time. I'm really liking where this is going for 2013 (Weather permitting).  I will definately post videos Pending what day halloweern takes place. The authorities are saying we could be in for some significant long term power outages. So who Knows If, or when Halloweern will occur this year. (Sigh).

    It was truely interesting  to follow our guests  and see where they stop and stare and what they don't notice and to also see what startles them. Often they're reactions are completely different than what we  anticipated which is truely educational. It was also neat to notice the spots that were a consistant scare or startle.

    With some GREAT THANKS to a good friend and his wife, we were able to get the haunt broken down and pre- staged today for re-assembly if NJ doesn't get eroded into the atlantic ocean over the next 3 days.  We just couldn't leave the stuff up with the storm comming.  I am very weary of the sickly strange weather we have been having the past 5-6 years around this time of year.  There were a few good years in there, but overall we always seem to be facing a huge weather hurdle.

   So, we'll hunker down like the rest of the North East and see what Sandy brings us. We're hoping that there is little damage from this monster, and that everyone makes it through safe and sound.

So Be safe and keep an eye out for when Trick Or Treat will occur.

Happy Haunting

Just a reminder for anyone visiting our blog..... our 5th annual Open house is happening on Saturday 10/27/2012  It's open to anyone that want's to stop by and share in the fun.  Our haunt opens at dark that evening (Around 7pm) and goes till whenever. It's a BYOB night but We'll have some  food, mixers and snacks for those that are hungry.. If you feel like contributing food, ,just ask what we might need to balance out the menu. Don't sweat it if you just want to stop by and visit. This is an evening designed mostly for adults but kids are also welcome.  We'd love to see you.

Of course we'll be open Oct 31st  for the traditional Trick or treating. So if you Miss us for the Open house you can still partake on Halloween night.
