Night of Terror – Haunted Paintball Hayride and Haunted House

448 Lincoln Mill Rd, Mullica Hill, NJ 08062

“With a name as quaint and pleasant as Creamy Acres Farm in Mullica Hill, you wouldn’t expect one of the Northeast’s scariest destinations. But that’s where you’ll find Night of Terror, a complex of a half-dozen frightening attractions and named one of HGTV’s Scariest Haunted Houses.

The massive 100-acre park, the largest Halloween park in New Jersey, is inhabited by zombies, attack dogs, chainsaw-wielding maniacs and killer clowns.

But the most unique attraction at Creamy Acres is the Haunted Paintball Hayride, which is exactly what it sounds like. Visitors climb aboard a wagon and use man-mounted paintball guns to defend the crew against live actors dressed as zombies and intricate moving props in a host of scenes over a 15-minute ride.”
