Halloween has always been my favorite holiday, and though I haven’t been in years I was psyched for the opportunity to check out Spooky World’s Nightmare New England, with VIP tickets.
It was pouring but they had ponchos available for us and we had a great time!
We got a special behind the scenes tour where we saw the actors having their makeup applied, and got to walk through the Brigham Manor with the lights on.
I really enjoyed it, because I don’t think I would’ve caught all of the cool effects with the lights off!
Here’s a description of all the attractions; but my favorite was by far the Brigham Manor!
In 1954 Encee Bishop the patriarch of this unusual family built a stately plantation home along the banks of the Merrimack River.
What little is now known about the Bishops primarily was learned through word of mouth by and the observation of neighbors that they seemed devoted to dark rituals and appeared fanatical about commemorating the passage of Halloween each year. It wasn’t until the mid-1960’s that the community began to speculate horrible things related to the Bishop family even though very few had ever encountered family members in person.
Although the property has been abandoned since they’ve been taken into custody, strange and fearful sounds continue to accompany the riverside property in Litchfield even to this day. Moreover, not all the remains of the missing people have been discovered and new reports have been filed every year on behalf of people who have disappeared after venturing onto the Bishops land.
This fall – the Bishops return to Litchfield, N.H.
Freak Show in 3D:
Enter the mind-bending labyrinth of 3-D Freak Show where a mutant army of freaks, evil clowns, and starving zombies reign supreme. Once in their world, navigate through the sewers, laboratories, mazes, and carnival attractions without turning into the main attraction yourself!
What would it be like to be trapped in a nightmare that you could not wake up from? You have stumbled into a place where rot, decay, and the filth from the earth are a haven for evil. There’s no place to hide from nightly scavengers and life takers. You might make it out alive, but your soul will be gone. Try to make it out of Carnage.
A New Breed has taken over the wooded banks of the Merrimack River, transforming The Colony into something we couldn’t even have imaged. Enter this renovated labyrinth of chaos at your own risk, and meet a new strain of hell’s servants. Once hidden amongst the cover of darkness, these unnatural beings have reemerged and are looking for bodies to torture and souls to destroy. Revamped trails of terror lead you through the back woods of Nightmare New England where you can discover what real fear feels like.
Walking deep into the woods, under the iron archway and into the cemetery, guests immediately are surrounded by crypts, tombstones, mausoleums and freshly dug graves. Corpses and zombies lurk in the shadows and fog that blanket this legendary cemetery. The cemetery is set within the natural landscape around the historic Merrimack River and is guaranteed to deliver thrills and screams to all who dare to enter!
In addition to all of the exhibits, there are booths with food, drink, dancing, a fire pit, and carnival games!
I definitely recommend the smoked turkey leg!
I highly recommend Spooky World if you love Halloween, or are just looking for something fun and different to do this fall!
