My friend is coming into town this weekend and I was hoping to take her to a "haunted house" (of the scary attraction kind rather than the supernatural kind) here in New York City. When we lived in Indiana, there was this amazing haunted house in the middle of a field at the end of this really creepy-as-heck country road. Given that New York has way more out of work actors, I'd hope there's a better selection of haunted houses in these parts.

We're willing to go as far as Connecticut, but I don't have a car, so attractions in/around Manhattan are preferred. Please try to include the admission fee and/or a link to the attraction website.

Family-friendly is fine, though my friend and I are both 21+ and not particularly prudish.

What is a haunted house? Some kind of attraction? –  gerrit Oct 24 '12 at 19:40
    
@gerrit Yup! It's basically a seasonal attraction that features a location (warehouse, converted home, shack, etc) that has been decked out in a "house of horrors," filled with spooky decorations, people dressed as monsters, and sometimes tricks and theatrical efforts. In some parts, these are also called a "haunted hayride," or something similar. Check out this wiki article. –  Aarthi Oct 24 '12 at 19:42
    
@Aarthi house in the middle of the field that's about 99% of farm houses. :) –  Karlson Oct 24 '12 at 20:02

@Karlson Well, yeah, but this place was the bomb and it was only $10. –  Aarthi Oct 24 '12 at 20:06

There are plenty of haunted houses around the City and in surrounded areas let's start with the obvious:

There are also plenty of online resources that list the haunted houses as well like HauntedHouse.com in New York and New Jersey so pick your poison. :)
