The Great Jack O’Lantern Blaze


Thursday, October 15, 2015 - Sunday, October 18, 2015
12:00 am


2015 dates: Oct 2-4, 9-12, 15-18, 21-31. Nov 1, 5-8, 13-15. Times vary by evening.

The tri-state area’s biggest, most electrifying Halloween event returns for 30 nights in 2015!

See more than 7,000 individually hand-carved, illuminated jack o’lanterns in this elaborate walkthrough experience. Meander through an historic, 18th-century riverside landscape and discover a breathtaking display — all made of jack o’lanterns!

Find your favorite constellations and get star struck walking through the Pumpkin Planetarium. Squeal with excitement as the Circus Train rolls into town featuring a cast of colorful clowns and awesome animals.

Flying pumpkin ghosts will draw your eye to the sky, and don’t miss Sleepy Hollow Country’s most iconic inhabitant, the Headless Horseman!

Witness the incredible sight of gourd-filled Jack-in-the-Boxes springing up and bouncing around. See slithering snakes, a giant spider web, and go gaga over shrunken Little Monsters. Gaze in amazement at a working doomsday grandfather clock. A giant sea serpent adds some hiss to the Undersea Aquarium while comical, squash-eating Venus pumpkin traps sprout in the garden. Blaze’s perennially popular Jurassic Park includes a triceratops, a pterodactyl, a brontosaurus, and a T-Rex!

Come gawk at more jack o’lanterns than ever before. Tens of thousands of visitors experienced last year’s Blaze, which was sold out EVERY NIGHT! Complete with sound effects, elaborate synchronized lighting and an all-original soundtrack by recording artist Richard Christy, this not-to-be-missed spectacle is the area’s most innovative Halloween happening.

Tickets online: Adults, $20 (Saturdays $25); Children 3-17, $16 (Saturdays $20). FREE for members and children under 3. Advance tickets are essential.

This event sells out quickly. Advance tickets are a must.
