Have you been to RISE of the Jack O'Lanterns at Old Westbury Gardens? Then share photos of your experience!

Returning for the sixth year in a row on Long Island is the most iconic, truly unique, family-friendly fall event, RISE of the Jack O'Lanterns! Come see 5,000 hand-carved illuminated jack o'lanterns creatively arranged along a scenic walking path and set to a musical score designed to bring out the fall spirit in visitors of all ages!

This year, we're bringing back some of our fan-favorite classic themes PLUS we'll be introducing some never-before-seen creations that are sure to wow both returning RISE fans and RISE newbies alike!

Multi-Pumpkin Structures

See our iconic multi-pumpkin structures that consist of dozens of illuminated jack o'lanterns assembled into life-sized pieces of art. You'll see classic fan-favorites like life-sized dinosaurs and dragons along with dozens of new characters and displays ready to steal the show.

Legend has it that the ghosts of an old biker gang are sometimes seen rumbling down the garden roads on their Hogs at night spitting flames from their exhausts, so keep an eye out for them. We'll have our new 40-foot 300+ jack o'lantern fire truck on stand-by just in case.

Intricately Painted & Carved 100+ Pounders!

See over FIVE DOZEN intricately carved 100+ pound pumpkins on display! These ephemeral works of art are meticulously hand-painted and hand-carved by dozens of artists who put upwards of 20 hours of work into each pumpkin to make them perfect for your enjoyment!

5,000 Fresh Real Pumpkins Carved Each Week!

The RISE is the only event in the country which carves 5,000 fresh REAL pumpkins EACH WEEKEND! For you jack o'lantern mathletes out there, that's a total of 20,000 jack o'lanterns carved from fresh real pumpkins over the course of 4 weekends! Each one weighs about 20 pounds so that's about 400,000 pounds of pumpkins (200 tons) we'll go through during the month! It takes about 75 people, over a two-day period each week, to carve and place all 5,000 and then remove them all on Monday morning! Yes, we do have a few hundred carveable artificial pumpkins in our display, because some of our carvers prefer them, but those are in addition to the 5,000 jack o'lanterns carved from fresh real pumpkins each week!

3D Sculpted Pumpkins!

We're bringing in one of the top pumpkin sculptors in the country to carve a dozen of the most draw-dropping externally carved pumpkin sculptures you'll ever see! You'll find them along the trail submerged in a super-secret-preservation-solution so they'll be preserved for the entire month of October!

Live Carving Demonstrations

Want to see some of our carvers in action? Check out our live carving demonstrations going on in the main tent when you arrive or before you leave. We'll have a few of our top jack o'lantern artists carving live and answering your carving questions so you can take that knowledge home and make your doorstep jacks the envy of the neighborhood.

The RISE Pumpkin Patch

You've asked and we've listened! Visitors are always requesting to buy a pumpkin to take home with them! This year, we're opening up The RISE Pumpkin Patch so you can find and purchase that perfect pumpkin to take home. Just make sure that if you carve it, you send us pictures! Email Haunt Owner

Review This Haunt
  • Email Verified Spectacular Halloween Fun

    This is a great showcase of talent. It's an that is perfect for the entire family. On a nice cool fall night, everything glows in the dark with masterful carvings and displays. Enjoy a walk through the gardens, and take in a true Halloween delight. My family and I were pleasantly surprised to see all that we did. It's such a creative production. We went in October of 2016, and we bought our tickets for 2017. Looking forward to seeing what they come up with. Be sure to walk slowly and take it all in. Recommended for all ages.

  • Great, but overpriced

    Do not get there until the time on your ticket. No need to stand for a while. The Jack o'lanterns were awesome and it was a fun experience. I just found it to be overpriced. We paid $63 for 3 of us. A family of 5, over $100, come on!! There should be a discount as you bring more people. Still, I'm glad I experienced this once.

  • Very Cool Event

    Went there this passed Saturday with a few friends. Very cool event. Had to be a few thousand carved pumpkins at the event with lots of themes from sports teams to planets and cartoons. Really cool stuff.
