Four different horrifying attractions are located right in Flemington: Hayride of Horror, Trail of Terror, Massacre Maze, and Carnevil of Chaos — and prices start at $38.

This is your destination for fear and a haunted farm experience. Terror waits in the five-acre walkable trail at “Nightmare on Gravity Hill.” Visitors will find themselves wondering if the frights they’re experiencing are real, or only a nightmare. Tickets can only be purchased on-site at the ticket booth, and ticket sales are cash-only. It’s open Fridays and Saturdays throughout September and October, and tickets are $35 for general admission or $50 for express admission to skip the line. 

Oasis Island of Terror | 3 Circle Drive, Robbinsville

Oasis Island of Terror has two distinct attractions: The Woods Have Eyes and Blackout, or a combo pass that gets you into both. The Woods Have Eyes is a haunted trail that is one mile long. Activities are self-guided here and are meant to be super scary — so much so that children under 12 are not advised to attend. Tickets are only available on site. 


Pantophobia | 156 Summit Avenue, Montvale

Entirely outdoors and entirely spooky, Pantophobia will be incorporating new scenes for 2022 – and they will tell the story of “The Revenge of Cyrus Grain.” This haunted wagon takes about 25 to 30 minutes, and it passes through greenhouses, open fields, and past the creepy Grain family home. You can purchase your tickets for Pantophobia in advance here. This attraction is great for children and is one of the less terrifying options on the list. It’s entirely outdoors, so be sure to dress in warm clothes. You can see the dates and times when this attraction is open here
