- Deepwells Haunted Mansion, Saint James
This 16-room mansion was built in 1845 and is a hotspot for mediums and ghost hunters. Expect clowns, with an apparent guest appearance from Pennywise the Clown, dolls and at least one flexible possessed woman on your trip through the property. I say property because the journey doesn’t end in the house. To get to the end, you have to not only go through the mansion, but there is a detour through Terrifying Trail in the woods that must be taken to finish. Children under 12 are advised to be accompanied by a parent through the haunted house. The cost of admission is $15 including tax.
2. Halloween Costume Extravaganza, West Hempstead
The newly-opened community center, Top Icon Center, is hosting their first Halloween extravaganza. The night includes a DJ, guest performances, food and refreshments. Make sure to bring your best costumes and be prepared to talk and receive smack while playing some fun games. Tickets are $20.
3. Challenge Escape Rooms, Bayside, Patchougue, Rockville Centre, Franklin Square
Escape rooms are growing in popularity, and there are several locations across Long Island and New York. You and a group will be put in a room of your choosing. Some options on the scarier side include Zombie nation in Bayside or Killer Countdown or Carnevil in Patchouge. Kids under 16 must go with a parent. The purpose is to make it through the puzzles in order to, of course, escape. Tickets are $28 per person.
4. Chamber of Horrors NY, Hauppauge
There are three chambers at this eerie excursion. First, you’ll enter the stage show for a performance and after this, there are two other dark chambers to navigate through.

5. Halloween Party at Space, Westbury

6. Halloween Heist, Huntington
On Halloween night, the Banger Series will be hosting their Halloween Heist right in Huntington Village. It will be hosted in the rustic lounge Repeal XVII with a bar, DJ and hookah. Tickets are starting at $20.
