13th Hour Haunted House in NJ

105 W Dewey Ave Suit 5, Wharton, NJ 07885

13th Hour hosts the most “entertaining and original events in the country. We feature 3 Haunted House attractions complete with special effects and movie quality sets. We also feature 6 award winning 60 minute Escape Rooms and all new Haunted Hatchets attraction!

Every town has its horror stories, its dark, unsettling history that resists contradiction. Some stories are born of urban legends, some of wicked campfire tales. Heinous, unfathomable, is the story of The Haunted Scarehouse. To fully understand the mysterious origins of the Scarehouse, we must go back in time, far back in time, in fact, to the 1970s, to an old farmhouse, an ordinary farmhouse, ensconced by pristine land—until the Haydens moved in: a man, his wife, and two children.

Haydens refused to adapt to it—or to its surroundings, or to its humble denizens. The Haydens lived in relatively close proximity to their neighbors. Despite this, they kept their distance from civilization, remaining indoors, rarely venturing outside; and when they set foot beyond their dreary dwelling, it was only to roam without purpose about the vast property, as if out of obligation, boredom, always in silent contemplation.”

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.”
