Timothy Haskell is no stranger to scaring folks: The Daily Beast considers his Nightmare series "one of the most frightening haunted-house productions in New York City." But when he teamed up with haunted-house vet Steve Kopelman, Timothy didn't want to keep populating creepy corridors with imaginary ghouls. At Nightmare: Killers2, the duo tap into the true terror inspired by historical and contemporary serial killers to explore the monstrosity of their actions and the celebrity and cultural obsession surrounding them. The New York Times lauds the attraction as “a taut, assured production that knows exactly what it wants to do (scare the hell out of you) and performs its task with ruthless, coldblooded precision."

In the lobby, "The Killer Acts Stage" hosts rotating performers who prime guests with Grand Guignol-style horror entertainment. At the front of the line, personnel can mark any willing visitor’s forehead with an optional scarlet X, which will grant the actors permission to interact with those victims for the next petrifying 20–25 minutes. Inside the haunt, rooms depict scenes based on Aileen Wournos and Charles Manson, with the occasional cameo from pop culture’s most fearsome fictional figures. To heighten heart rates even more, visitors will also have to navigate twists and turns, fog, and uneven footing as they desperately try to avoid becoming each psychopath’s latest victim.

Tea-light flames flickering through red glass holders gently illuminate the exposed-brick walls, ochre curtains, and plates full of contemporary American cuisine fashioned with a Mediterranean twist at Red Oak Restaurant. Servers flit about the dimly lit setting or covered patio, which sits under a red canopy surrounded by greenery and wood latticework. At tables they stop to present tapas-style hot and cold plates, which balance grilled shrimp, crisp calamari, or classic Mediterranean hummus and falafel. Chefs in the kitchen prepare substantial entrees, including kebabs threaded with lamb or kofta, as well as lamb chops fresh from the grill. Also in the kitchen, fragrant stews known as tajines simmer oxtail or beef with herbs and spices. As a post-meal treat, brass-trimmed hookahs send thanks to the chef via aromatic smoke signals.

Located on the periphery of Manhattan's legendary park, Central Park Bike Rental and its staff of licensed tour guides facilitate exploration of the city. Solo adventurers mount single or tandem rental cruisers, mountain bikes, or road cycles and, equipped with included helmets, baskets, and locks, take off like hungry earthworms burrowing toward the center of the Big Apple. When tour guides captain excursions, they supplement the leisurely pace of two-hour Central Park bike tours with a steady stream of historical facts. They’ll also make pit stops at famous sites, including the Shakespeare Garden and Belvedere Castle, a weather station that still predicts impending disasters. After returning their Trek bikes, riders can return to the park to imitate more than 1,400 animals living at the Central Park Zoo. Patrons who wish to see the city without exerting themselves can opt for a one-hour pedicab tour. During these tours, guides propel up to three passengers or six toddlers stacked up inside three trench coats to their desired destinations, pointing out the best eateries and landmarks along the way.

Like the best detectives, Naked Buffalo Tours roots out the hidden facts shoved between cobblestones and floorboards to reveal the truth behind the city's underground activities. Author, owner, and guide Michael F. Rizzo first developed a love of historical research after purchasing an 1893 home on Buffalo’s west side. Now he investigates the city’s architectural and social backstory to inject forgotten tales into his tours, as well as in books. His six walking tours travel through different neighborhoods to illuminate sites and stories of past mob activity. Patrons wander near gangsters’ homes, historic Erie Canal brothels, and renowned sites, such as the Magaddino Memorial Chapel and city hall.

The Haunted House of Rochester is a macabre domicile sure to scare visitors down to the tips of their belly buttons. Perambulate through 5,000 square feet of mad clowns, bloodthirsty butchers, and anthropomorphized slices of pie. Guests are admitted two or three at a time to the indoor and outdoor tour of terror. Test the strength of your best friendship, romantic relationship, or passenger/bus driver bond as you wander the perilous path, or simply find an excuse to remove an overly binding pair of dungarees, as the house is known to scare the pants off of most legs. Younger children, pregnant women, and individuals with heart conditions may want to avoid the horrific homestead. During your visit, you can also peruse a selection of pumpkins, Halloween goodies, and concessions available for purchase (cost not included in today's Groupon).

Though it began in 1981 with just one Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud, today, Silver Star Limousine operates a fleet of 35 upscale vehicles that range from the antique to the exotic. Drivers can ferry a pair of passengers to a wedding in a 1932 Hupmobile, chauffeur a corporate getaway in a Mercedes Sprinter, or make a quick trip from the airport in a Lincoln Town Car. Each vehicle has been outfitted with technology to reduce its carbon footprint and can travel across the tri-state area. Stretch limos and party buses create an air of mystery for groups of up to 40 passengers, with amenities such as LED light shows, 54-inch plasma TVs, and room for dancing.
