New York’s most high-tech haunted house is not only truly terrifying, it also has an educational element. You can expect skeleton pirates, talking paintings and a grisly bathroom. Participants trigger the hotel’s spooky surprises with a series of hidden sensors that respond to the audience’s movements.
Garish zombies, monsters and other ghoulish creatures await in this 5,000-square-foot labyrinth of horrors, deemed too scary for children under 14 to enter without supervision. It’s popular, so lines are likely to be long—consider shelling out for an “R.I.P.” express-access ticket.
