Halloween at a price

@ Capitale: A Masked Ball
The 13th Masquerade Ball at Capitale is scheduled for Halloween 2014. Lose yourself in decadent debauchery and naughty escapades. Although the name does not indicate it, the goal is not to remain hidden throughout the evening but to assume some diabolical mischief and mayhem.
Capitale regularly serves the who’s who clientele of New Yorkers, and even celebrities. Previous years have witnessed participants in the Halloween party swaying rhythmically alongside Jay-Z, Heidi Klum and Petra Nemcova.

@ 230 Fifth: Halloween
Halloween is good, Halloween on the largest rooftop in NYC is better! Two events in October for Halloween (don’t worry, the terrace is heated) evening. Costume is required and so are a minimum of 2 drinks. The plus point is the breathtaking view over Manhattan and the majestic Empire State Building; besides in the dark times of Halloween you may see Godzilla – or you will be convinced you saw it after a few vodka, kamikaze shots!

Away from the glitz and stilettos, Halloween also finds its celebrations in terrifying attractions and haunted houses. The goal: a night of horrors, nightmares for a year…Some places really appalling:
Blackout Haunted House – You signed, you will tremble …
This haunted house has its own anxiety rules, including one that sets the tone: your signature on a document that certifies that you understand what will happen there. Each participant has a protective mask (why exactly?). And you walk ALONE through the house. You must follow the footprint. No reassuring grip of a friend or love whose arm you can grip or throw a clammy hand over; it’s just you and only you.
Sadism and fear find abode here, Blackout is a real traumatic experience and mental torture. No speaking only yelling the word “SAFETY” if everything is too much for you.
The BLACKOUT : house NYC
225 E. Houston Street
New York, NY 10002
From october 9th to november 8th 2014.
Nightmare New York – the “city that never sleeps” leaps from the shadows
In this Haunted house nightmare, where horror mingles with gore, plunge in the dark depths of New York City. This year, the most terrifying urban legends have the place of honour : travel through history et discover the alligators in the subway, the gargoyles or the super rats created by Hurricane Sandy. A horrible trip which reminds you your worst nightmares can wait at the corner.

Blood Manor: Don’t turn around…at any cost
One of the most famous haunted houses in New York, as proven by the queue at the entrance. Inside, the rooms offer a different fear threshold. Sticking to the essence of the house of horror, hot breaths of air and sighs continue to haunt groups who enter it as participants exchange a few trinkets with cries. We suggest you invest in a RIP (VIP) ticket, to avoid spending half the night in the street.
