Killer Klowns from Outer Space at Halloween Horror Nights 29

Calling all Klowns! Calling all Klowns!

Last year the cult classic film filled the waterfront of New York with bubbles and the screams of their victims. This year the Klowns land with an all new haunted house, expanding on their popular scare zone to include more characters and locations. As you walk through the cotton candy cocoon warehouse and the flying circus tent spaceship there will be scents of popcorn, cotton candy, and ice cream. But don’t be fooled, these Klowns are not here for fun.

Halloween Horror Nights 29 runs select nights September 6 – November 2. Tickets are on sale now.
