Halloween is creeping up closer than you think! Don't look over your shoulder just yet, but haunted attractions are coming to Binghamton and the surrounding areas! Grab a cool costume, your family, friends, or significant others and head on out to these corn mazes, haunted houses, and more!

Reaper's Revenge

Reaper's Revenge is one destination I'm stoked about visiting! Reaper's Revenge is located in Montdale, PA, near Scranton. No matter how you like to be spooked, Reaper's Revenge has you covered!

ATTRACTIONS

  • Haunted Hayride

Looking for 60-acres of terror? The Haunted Hayride is one of the scariest rides you'll take through a twisted forest of darkness and nightmares.

  • Lost Carnival

Clowns will be in attendance. That is all that needs to be said for me to stay away.

  • Pitch Black

'Pitch Black' makes one realize how much they rely on sight. Are you willing to part with one of your senses?

DIRECTIONS FROM BINGHAMTON
81 South to Exit #197 (Waverly), left onto 632 East, go 2.5 mi. to flashing red light, turn right onto Green Grove Road, 500 ft. on left.

Reaper's Revenge runs from the first weekend in September to the the first weekend in November - so there will be plenty of chances to check it out!

PURE TERROR SCREAM PARK

Pure Terror Scream Park is located in Chester, NY. While it's a fair drive from Broome County, the scarring scares will be worth it!

ATTRACTIONS

  • The Butcher's Revenge

Not much is revealed about this brand new 2012 attraction! The only clues are 'Butcher' and 'Revenge,' which is enough to spark nightmares for me.

  • Terror Under the Big Top

More clowns. There are always clowns and they're always terrifying.

  • House of Terror

House of Terror assures that you will encounter awful sounds and rotten smells. Monsters and ghouls are also a part of the deal. Are you sure you want to attend this house party?
