Have a Spooktacular Halloween in New York
Don’t get spooked trying to figure out what to do on Halloween in New York this year – Bergen Limo has you covered. From high-tech terrors and dangerous dinners to child-friendly chills and haunting hikes, our list of top 5 things to do in New York on Halloween will ensure you’re not hanging at a dead end for ideas.
Gravesend Inn, Haunted Hotel
Tech equals terror at the Gravesend Inn Haunted Hotel thanks to the New York City College of Technology’s Theatreworks. Between 10 AM and 3 PM and 6 PM to 9 PM on Halloween at the Voorhees Theatre, 186 Jay Street, Brooklyn, guests are invited to be scared senseless as animatronics and advanced computer systems work in tandem with actors to convince you that ghosts are real.
With a production quality on a par with any Disney attraction, the $10 entry ticket is great value for money.
The Jekyll and Hyde Club
There is nothing quite as strange as dinner at the Jekyll and Hyde Club, a social club and restaurant inhabited by eccentric explorers and crazy scientists, where something odd happens at least once every ten minutes. Horror, science fiction, and adventure are all to be found during dinner – you’re unlikely to ever have a more unusual or bizarre dining experience.
A dedicated full-time cast of characters and sophisticated interactive effects help bring each uniquely themed floor to life, all of which will convince you that you’re at a genuine haunted 1930’s English Explorer’s Club. Although open from noon, you’ll likely need to reserve a table well in advance to get in.
Spooky City Scavenger Hunt Party
Free entry with registration, between 2 PM and 5 PM the Museum of the City of New York is inviting families to dress up and go trick or treating at the museum. Along the way you’ll hear various scary stories and decorate your own pumpkin inspired by some of the exhibits. And of course, no family Halloween event is ever really complete without a Monster Mash dance party.
Ideal for children aged between 6 and 12, snacks are included.
Sleepy Hollow Cemetery Daytime Guided Tour
Not exactly terrifying, but certainly in keeping with the spooky theme of the day, the Sleepy Hollow Cemetery Daytime Guided Tour is as educational as it is entertaining. The two-hour walk begins at the resting place of Washington Irving, author of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, then moves on to the Receiving Vault, industrialist Andrew Carnegie’s grave, and finally the Rockefeller family mausoleum. The tour costs $19.99 and requires advanced reservations.
The 45th Annual Village Parade
New York’s premiere Halloween event, anyone in costume is invited to join the march while thousands of onlookers cheer from the roadside. This year will see 35 bands and hundreds of puppets join artists and dancers for a cornucopia of colors and creativity. The fun starts at 7 PM, but you’ll want to find a good spot a little before then. If you want to take part, it is highly recommended you visit their website for more information.
Wanting to cram in as many of these events as possible? Then your best bet is to hire a limo to get you around. To ensure your day is as creepy as possible you might want to reserve a black limo hummer or a Party Bus in New York today before we only have pink ones left.
