Nightmare is one of New York City's most well-known (and feared) extra-horrifying haunted houses. Now in its seventh year, the haunted house's theme changes every fall. This time, the setting is an insane asylum populated by folks who have “broken superstitions” and committed themselves as protection against the consequences. To gain their freedom, they must entice the brave souls who enter to take on their bad luck—by breaking the very same superstitions. Before you enter Nightmare walk through the Fun House, another scary attraction where the mental patients run the hospital. Visit hauntedhousenyc.com for more information.
