Halloween Events in New York 2011

With Halloween around the corner, the ghosts and ghouls are making their way to New York and no city celebrates it better than the Big Apple! This October, Roomguide are offering even lower prices on cheap hotels in New York so you can make the most of the haunted holiday. Packed with parties, festivals and attractions, New York is the perfect place to go if you want to be truly spooked this Halloween! New York Halloween Parade will see thousands of people take to the streets of New York City including costumed marchers, bands, dancers, puppets and more! The Parade has been a tradition since 1973 and is the largest Halloween celebration in the world. This is a fun event for all the family but if you’re looking to be really frightened, there are many other events currently running until the 31st October:

Blackout Haunted House

This scary Halloween attraction requires you to go through on your own, with a protective mask and a flashlight. The intense experience is for over 18’s only and although you can scream as loud as you want, there is absolutely no speaking allowed.  The New York Times calls it “the extreme theatre event of the year.”


The zombie apocalypse starts again in the Bronx this Halloween. This Pelham Bay safe house is an onslaught of zombies lurking in the dark and jumping out at every corner. Quarantine protocols have begun in the Bronx and 1157 Pelham Bay has been identified as the safest location for residents to take refuge, or is it?

Steampunk Haunted House

Combining a steampunk culture with a traditional creepy house, this haunted location has been taken over by demented robots and clockwork spiders. This immersive experience separates audience members and thrusts them into a terrifying world of twisting hallways and dark cellars.

Blood Manor

A hit every year since 2005, this is New York’s premier haunted attraction featuring several fright filled environments including the Graveyard of the Doomed, the Chamber of Killer Klowns and the Cabaret of Death. From pig hanging carcasses to eerie graveyards, this is not for the faint hearted!
