It’s the most Horror filled time of the year. It is finally Halloween season. I say finally even though it seems as if we blink and the months change these days because Halloween is one of the only things that gets me willing to say goodbye to summer. We are excited that the haunting season has returned. NYC is a wickedly wonderful place to live in October. The autumn weather isn’t the only thing known to bring a chill if you’re looking for a frightfully good time you don’t want to miss Blood Manor.
This year JustaBXgrandpa got to head downtown and check out a press preview of Blood Manor and he was excited to come home and tell me all about the experience. See this isn’t just a haunted house you walk into and get scared by some decorations and sounds. When you enter Blood Manor it is a truly terrifying experience. It is no surprise that Blood Manor is billed as the premier Haunted Attraction. And don’t think if you went last year, you know what to expect. Nope! Be prepared because 75% of it is new or refreshed. The people behind Blood Manor are so sneaky! They leave just enough of the old show for you to be lulled into a false sense of security!
The attractions and chambers of horror for 2022 include The Crypt, Thunderdome, The Wake, Mayhem, Maggot Invasion, Hannibal’s Hell, and the Killer Clown Room. What are you waiting for? You know you want to check out the killer clowns. Not only have the attractions been updated but so has the entry system. This year, the timed ticket entry is being sold in 1-hour time slots as opposed to half-hour time slots. I know that makes a huge difference to me. Trying to squeeze into a half-hour time slot can be scary. And if you’re scared of commitment don’t worry, Blood Manor still has you covered. If you know the day you want to go but are unsure of a time, you can select the final 2-hour time slot and show up anytime within the last two hours of the event. You can even purchase tickets at the door during the last two hours! If that’s still too much commitment for ya, they even have a R.I.P. Express Entry ticket with no time restriction on the night of your ticket. Ooh, I also have a treat for you. Get 10% off the purchase price with the code PERFECTDATE when you purchase your tickets online.
Okay, now that we’ve gotten you into the event I don’t want to give too much away but I want you to be prepared to scream your head off. If you want a few spoilers check out the photos below. They all come courtesy of Michael William Bernstein because JustaBXgrandpa was having such a ghastly good time that his photos came out blurry! If you are looking for the perfect date nite, mom’s night out, or family fright night with your older littles (think 14+) this is a frightening fabulous pick. Blood Manor will be open every weekend and some weekdays through November 5th. Don’t wait too long to get your tickets or you will have to wait until next year!
