It is that time of the year again. Time to watch scary movies, pick out a costume, go trick or treating, and all of that fun stuff. It is also time to hit up a haunted house! Now if you are going to do this you have to go to a good one and that means going to Blood Manor in New York City.
I went to Blood Manor years ago and it is still the best haunted house in New York City. In fact it is considered one of the top premiere attractions in New York City for Halloween. Blood Manor is in its 11th year and has only gotten better. Usually there is an extremely long line. Not a regular long line, I mean down the block, around the corner, and down another block, long line. It is definitely the place to be.
This year they have introduced a revised time ticket entry system to reduce the wait time. They have also allowed for more flexibility arrival times. You can purchase tickets online or on site. There is a black trailer right in front to purchase tickets. Therefore when we arrived the line wasn’t as long as I have seen it in the past.
I don’t want to give it away, but I will say it was awesome. Blood Manor had us walking very quickly screaming and laughing a bit. I watched as others stood in corners scared. Blood Manor has 5,000 square feet of themed rooms, passageways, and more. They even had a 3D portion that was a cool and yet scary experience. It was so exciting that it felt like it ended quickly and I wanted to go through it again.
Blood Manor will show you what would happen if you and your friends were in a horror movie. I stood in a corner a few times and was left behind. Now I know in a zombie or ghoul situation it is every man for himself. I also heard someone scream like I had never heard before, but I won’t throw any names out there!
Even after Halloween is over on Nov. 4th and 5th there will be Black Out Nights. On those nights you will be able to walk through Blood Manor with a glow stick and very limited lighting. I would love to go back and check that out as well. So if you are in New York I highly recommend Blood Manor, you won’t regret it. If you have young kids, under 14, I would be cautious about bringing them unless you are one of those parents who want to scare the heck out of their kids!
Blood Manor is located on 163 Varick St. New York, NY
