Blood Manor returns to their home in Tribeca with 10,000-square-feet of themed rooms, corridors, and a labyrinth of passageways that’ll play on your biggest fears.
The manor is featuring even more scares and thrills this year for the truly die-hard Halloween fan. Explore old frightful favorites like The Crypt (where no one rests in peace) as well as all-new frights like Maggot Invasion, Hannibal’s Hell, and Killer Clowns! The haunted experience is designed to be the most intense, creepy, and scream-inducing event in the tri-state area—and it delivers.
75% of this year’s show is new or refreshed, and features a haunted battlefield that throws a nod to celebrity photographer Matthew Brady who was known for his daring Civil War photos and pictures of famous people and whose studio used to be located in the Blood Manor building.
Blood Manor is a notoriously spine-chilling event that’s so frightening people have been known to relieve themselves as they make their way through “NYC’s Premier Haunted Attraction.” (Seriously! There’s even a shirt you get if you do!)
Many people believe the place actually is haunted, which is why it is a “must-do” for many Halloween lovers.
“We hear stories all the time about shrieks of terror late at night, flashes like an old-fashioned camera, shadows across the windows,” says owner Jim Lorenzo. “The most unnerving report came from a former employee who said she had a weird interaction with an actor in a Civil War uniform. When she realized none of the actors were dressed in a uniform, she left and never came back!”
Adrenaline junkies and adventure seekers are in for a night of pure, unadulterated horror when they visit–in fact, it’s recommend visitors are at least 14 years of age and older if attending. “It’s shocking and scary, definitely not for the faint of heart!” says Lorenzo.
And with an average of 37 gallons of blood spilled each night, Blood Manor is bound to fulfill your darkest Halloween nightmares.
Located at 359 Broadway by Franklin Street in downtown Manhattan, Blood Manor is open every weekend and some weekdays now through November 5. You can learn more at their website here.
