A haunted house is born from a past tragedy, be it a grisly murder, a mysterious disappearance, or a long-forgotten bologna sandwich buried beneath the floorboards. Sign on for a spooky tour of an eerily cursed residence with today's Groupon: for $13, you get admission for two to Nightmare's Haunted House in Delmar (up to a $26 value).
Nightmare's Haunted House fills its dreadful depths with the trappings of its visitors' greatest fears, including crazed clowns, murderous ghouls, and throngs of the undead. Massive plumes of flame guard the entrance to this multilevel fright, where a cast of volunteer spooksters shudders down narrow hallways to the sound of chainsaws and blood-curdling screams that emanate around every creepy corner. Come face to face with Dr. Death, traverse the ethereal spinning lights of the Spinning Vortex of Terror, and fight with the Butcher over his exorbitant prices for ground round.
Proceeds collected by the terrorizing team go to benefit a variety of local causes, with this year's earnings going to the Western Sussex Boys and Girls Club, the American Cancer Society, and Feed a Friend. The haunt's gates open at 7:30 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays throughout October, as well as October 30 and Halloween night.
