New York Haunted Hayride (Oct. 13 - 31)

Head to Randalls Island for an experience that may haunt your dreams -- or nightmares. New York Haunted Hayride is back with activities to scare you. Besides the hayride, which is filled with plenty of horrifying characters to frighten, head to the "House of Shadows" maze, where the only thing between you and some creepy characters is a dim lantern to guide your way. Take a break from the jump-scares at the haunted village where you can enjoy a variety of eats, and act out some of the most iconic moments from horror films at the Macabre Theater.
