Have you been to Brookdale Haunted Theater? Then share photos of your experience!

Are you brave enough to take on the demented imaginations of our student’s minds? Designed, built and run by past and present students. This tormented trip through body parts, evil creatures and more will redefine “stage fright"...FOREVER!!!

Enter the doors of the Performing Arts Center if you dare! Our entire theater will once again be converted into a crazy labyrinth or horror. Although the haunt takes place in a theater, this is not a show where you sit and watch the stage. This is a 15-20 minute walking tour throughout the entire facility with frights and terror around every corner. Email Haunt Owner

Review This Haunt
  • Haunted Theater 2017

    Walking in this year was different then usual. Since I didn't have the pleasure of actually being around all the action, I got the chance to walk through and experience what so many of our other guest get to see. I was freaked out from the moment we walked through and even though I thought I'd knew what was in store, I was dead wrong. So many twist and turns and scares that I didn't expect came my way faster then ever and I found myself jumping every second. This year is unlike any other and the scares just keep getting scarier!! Be sure to come check it out!!!

  • Amazing Theater of Fear

    This was so fun and very spooky. I thouroughly enjoyed every part of it. I really liked the show while you waited, so that we didnt have to just sit around waiting. It was interactive before the tour.

  • Had To Go Twice!

    We went last year and didn't want to miss this year. We had such a fun time, friends who heard about it wanted to go so we went twice this year! We saw stuff we missed the first time because there is so much to see. The actors are great and the movie and zombie dancers made the wait to get in entertaining. We love the fact that there is a senior rate (Yes, we were all retirees!) and we're making the Haunted Theater a yearly Halloween tradition.

  • Better every year

    I've been going since the start, each year they take a college theater to a truly terrifying dungeon... almost a mile long walk through this year with so many more special effects that make you feel so many things! The walls are tighter , rooms darker and so many more scares. Would recommend to win this and I will be back every weekend! Sherri makes it flawless

  • Email Verified One of the Best

    I love coming to this haunted house for about 9 years now. Everything changes and it always gets better every year. Which is awesome because the price hasn't gone up in a few years.

  • Awesome local spot

    I didn't think a community college could pull off a solid haunted house on top of all the school stuff they do on the regular! A really well thought out haunted house with themes that change every year! It's not like some others that are the exact same every year! You never know what to expect! It just keeps getting better and better! I'm looking forward to this year's haunt! Its even better that it doesnt cost an arm and a leg to afford a ticket!

  • I Can't Believe How Cheap This Haunt Was

    Honestly, I don't think there is a cheaper haunted around. It has an indoor wait so I didn't have to be outside and cold waiting to get in and they had things to watch while I waited. once I was in the haunted house I felt like I was in there for forever. I couldn't believe it took almost 20 minutes to walk through. For only $12 we walked through the best haunted house this season. Definitely check this out

  • Email Verified Waste of time. Badly organized

    The show itself was good considering it was performed by students. The show was only 10 mins for which I had to wait almost two hours. They crammed us in to theatre with other people. There were some sort of mediocre dance performance every twenty minutes . I had to watch that performance four times. The monsters were OK for first ten minutes but there should be more variety If you have hundreds of people locked in one place. They have serious issues identifying who came first an who is next in line. We were kept waiting but people (many) who came after us miraculous ly made to show before us. When I complained it to the organizer she moved us to next level. Again has to wait for another half hour. Again I had to go complain. The lady in in charge told me they are doing this for fourteen years. That means they still have not figured out how to organize a successful show. Some suggestions. Please issue limited tickets. If you cannot handle more people it is better to limit quantity that you are comfortable working with. Please let people know how long is the wait line before you issue them ticket. I know you are there to make profit but it is unethical to just cram people. Please take professional help to identify who came first. Current method of random selection is not working for you and you would have angry customers.

  • Best in New Jersey

    Going to the same haunted houses every year often gets boring because they tend to re-use scenes and characters year after year to save money. It's astounding to me that each year this haunt that is based out of a community college with a minimal budget can manage to come up with something entirely new and unique every year. You never know what you're going to encounter when you enter Haunted Theater and that's what keeps me coming back. The friendly and enthusiastic staff is obviously passionate about what they do. And can you say, "Bang for your buck?" They have a bevy of creepy characters and exciting events BEFORE YOU EVEN GET TO THE TICKET WINDOW! Spooky characters wandering around campus, zombie dancers, photo-ops with grotesque executioners...They also offer kid's tours during the days with fun activities and trick-or-treating for the kids along with special effects makeup demonstrations for the adults. This place is the best!!!

  • Universal Horror Nights in Jersey

    Very well done, organized and professional, May have to wait in theater for awhile as they go row by row. They have entertainment while waiting including jumps and scares from the ghouls. This reminded us of the haunted houses in Universal Halloween Horror NIghts. Traveling through a maze in the dark and being chased or surprised by a very scary ghoul. There was even an amazing 3D room which was our favorite part. I went with a small group and we had a blast. Highly recommend and we visit and pass the word on for next year.

  • Truly scary

    I've been to my fair share of haunted houses in the past, but the Haunted Theater is one of the few to really get to me. Definitely go with a group, especially if you have a fear of clowns like me.
