Last night, I was invited to go to the Creamy Acres Night of Terror. Creamy Acres is located in Mullica Hill, NJ and is considered to be the largest haunted attraction in New Jersey. Now I’ve mentioned before that I am a huge scaredy cat, so I prepared for the worst as I approached the haunted destination. The night ended up being a really fun and enjoyably scary experience.
If you’re into all things Halloween, I think this is a perfect opportunity to get your fright on. Creamy Acres is definitely a bang-for-your-buck kind of place because what’s better than one haunted attraction? SIX haunted attractions all in one place. Tickets to all 6 attractions are $35; however, I went with a large group of over 20 people so there was a good discount. Also, I feel that when you go with a lot of people it can be even more fun.
The six attractions include: Ride of Terror, Dark Dreams, Cornfield Maze, Zombie Mayhem, Slaughter Cave, and Head Hunters. The Ride of Terror was a haunted hayride that lasts a good 25 minutes. I think this was one of my favorite parts simply due to the fact that I get to sit down and take in the fright sights. The production this place puts on is quite impressive and the actors did a pretty good job at scaring you. They have really good props and animatronics that I think add a cool element to this expansive haunted attraction. The night I went was great because it wasn’t too cold out and the lines weren’t too long. I suggest going on a Thursday night if you can since this place tends to fill up on the weekends as it is only open Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays in October. The biggest complaint I hear about Creamy Acres is the lines, and fortunately for us we didn’t have that problem. We arrived at around 7pm and were done everything by 9ish. The Cornfield Maze was fun and the characters blended right into the dark abyss so when they popped out I was super spooked. My apologies to anyone in front, behind, or around me that I may have accidentally grabbed during these moments of terror. The thing is when I get scared I try and grab anything or anyone around me for protection. I’m one of those people that you could simply say “boo” to and I’d jump or run for the hills. Luckily the corn maze didn’t take us too long to get through since I went with some pros who could probably walk through a haunted house in their sleep. Dark Dreams was one of the ones that freaked me out since it was very dark and while I’m not scared of the dark I am very scared of tripping and falling on my face. So yea, I’m not a big fan of people jumping out at me in the pitch black when I can’t find my way out. My group also got lost a few time inside the attractions and the actors were really good at directing us out, which was actually kind of funny when they broke character to inform us we were going the wrong way.
One of the most terrifying parts of the night for me came during the Slaughter Cave haunted house. I’m not sure exactly what inside scared me most, but I’m pretty sure it had something to do with the fact that I lost my friend during this attraction. It was in the very beginning my friend was right behind me one second and the next thing I knew they vanished from behind me. Panic immediately sank in as this house takes a bit longer than the others to get through. I quickly ran to catch up to other people in our group, because if there is one rule in a haunted house it’s “every man/woman for themselves.” If you get lost from the group then I’m sorry but you’re SOL! I will not be going back for you. Thankfully I was able to catch up to the others, but I didn’t find my friend until after we were out of the house about 15-20 minutes later. I was sweating bullets the entire time 🙈😰.
I ended up having a great time at Creamy Acres Night of Terror and would definitely go back again. It was hallo-good! We ended the night with some treats, they have funnel cake, fried Oreos, hot dogs and cheeseburgers here 😋 because the next scariest thing to happen to you after a haunted house is clogging your arteries. Next on our list is the Pennhurst Asylum in Pennsylvania. We are planning a trip there soon, so stay tuned. Let me know what scary things you are checking out this Halloween season, be safe, and happy haunting.
Stay tuned for more adventures…
