Haunted Seaport Comes Alive at Night

Sep 23, 2016

Find magic and mayhem at the Haunted Seaport, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Oct. 20-22. It’s all at the Tuckerton Seaport, located at 120 West Main St. in historic Tuckerton.

A pumpkin patch for the little ones hosted by Jersey Family Fun will have non-scary activities such as making their own trick-or-treat bag, coloring a pumpkin, enjoying a mini-hayride, and finding their way through an easy maze made of hay bales on Thursday and Friday from 6 to 9 p.m. and Saturday from 3 to 9 p.m.

Magician Joe Holiday will entertain on the Tuckerton Seaport stage with shows starting at 6:30 and 7:30 Thursday and Friday and four shows on Saturday on the half hour starting at 4:30 until 7:30 p.m. Holiday is an award-winning magician performing all over the world.

As darkness falls, the haunting begins; from 6 until 9 each night, pirates and sea captains lost at sea will come to life and stroll the Seaport’s boardwalk or hide underneath ready to pounce! A haunted graveyard is almost too spooky to enter.

Climb aboard a hayride for a ghostly trip through the Seaport’s Haunted Woods. Join in a game of glow-in-the-dark mini-golf; and will you make it through the Tucker’s Island Lighthouse, which is infested with spiders? While you wait, take a photo with a skeleton in the stocks or die laughing in the coffin. Post your pics to the Seaport’s FaceBook page.

General admission is $8 for all ages. Hayrides of the Haunted Woods are an additional $5 with paid admission but free for Seaport members. For more information, call 609-296-8868 or go to

The Seaport is dead serious about safety: All minors must be accompanied by an adult at all times. —P.J.
