That looks great. One of the things I want to do if I ever get to the point I can leave on Halloween. Right now we get over 1,000 toters. It's getting a little out of hand for just a couple to handle. So hubby suggested we take a couple of years off and travel to see other Halloween displays. And then when we start up again the numbers will be down to a more comfortable number. So this is on my list of places I'd like to go to. Thanks for sharing.

I've only heard good things about it and it must be pretty good because by early September time slots were already selling out. I have tickets for Oct 16th so I'll come back and let you guys know what I think and hopefully have some pictures to post too.

I'd also add that there are plenty of things to do in the NYC area around Halloween if you've never been. Definitely worth a trip in my opinion.

Cool, that's only ten days away! Post pics for sure.

We went for the first time last year. It was amazing - much more impressive even than I thought it would be. We really enjoyed it. It runs after Halloween as well, so that's helpful to get a chance to get up there.

I don't know that I would fly in from Missouri *just* to see the blaze - that's a bit of a haul. But if you were planning out a fall trip with some other things as well it is definitely worth stopping in on.

Yes! I went!! It was like... a dream of mine to go!

Road trip yes - flight no.


It is REALLY crowded - they get tons of people every single night. If you go - take your time - most of the crowd will pass you by.
Another tip - if you drive there - it is right next to a grocery store (Shoprite I think?) - Park in their parking lot ;) and *cough* they have restrooms too...

If you buy tickets watch out for the weather - we've been having freaky storms around Halloween - Sandy, a snowstorm - and we got cancelled twice! They rescheduled for later in the season... So you might want to pick dates carefully.



I would recommend - if you are thinking of flying in - to go to several Halloween things in this area:

1) The Blaze
2) Visit Sleepy Hollow and do some of their events
3) The Headless Horseman Hayride - Not my thing personally, but a lot of people seem to love it. Totally depends on what you're into.
4) Go check out Halloween stuff in NYC - like the Botanical Gardens: http://www.nybg.org/exhibitions/2014/haunted-pumpkin-garden/
5) Or just enjoy fall in the Hudson Valley!
