We're Back!

After four years of searching, we've finally found the perfect location to continue Darkness Rising! We've teamed up with the fine folks at Play Amusement in Farmingdale (formerly Fun Zone) to continue this weird obsession we have with scaring the hell out of people!

During our run in Massapequa, we managed to raise well over $200,000 for the Heather Pendergast Fund and YES Community Counseling Center. And while the days of volunteering were a ton of fun, we've decided its time to move on and re-open DR as a for profit haunted house. Don't worry, we'll have options for donating at the ticket booth if that's something you'd still like to do!

Thanks to everyone for supporting us throughout the years! We look forward to scaring you once again in our best season yet. Email Haunt Owner

Review This Haunt
  • Top notch scare factor

    Took my sons & friends aged 16, 19 & 20. They're at the age where it's hard to impress. Darkness Rising scared the pants off them. Not so much the blood & gore but the tension & fear factor! We were all screaming lol

  • Email Verified Amazing haunted house!

    I’ve been to some of the “best” haunted houses in NY and NJ and this one was by far my favorite. If you get a chance please visit this place! Better than Bayville and a fraction of the cost!

  • Email Verified Absolutely incredible

    I’ve been to plenty haunted houses with Halloween season. Darkness rising is hands down the best one I’ve been to in my life. The price was affordable, there was no wait time. The actors were incredible and so was the story line. I can’t wait to come back next year!!!! Qt

  • Email Verified Best. Place. Ever.

    Darkness Rising was hands down the best haunted house I've ever been to. The wait wasn't that long, only 10 minutes. The staff was very kind, and told us what we could expect: a lot of scares! When we got inside to the haunted house itself, there was a captivating storyline (which I won't divulge here). The actors were so professional, I won't be surprised if they win an Oscar one day. There were a lot of dark places and flashing lights, which I enjoyed. The actors had a 'no touch' rule, but they were so close to you, and that added to the scare. The props looked completely authentic, I thought I was inside a horror movie. Overall, if you're looking for a ton of scares, go to Darkness Rising. Best night of my life!

  • Email Verified Awesome

    SOOO scary. I barely watched anything. Def stick to their rule: 12 and up. It wasn't scary in a bloody way. There was a lot of different scares and the actors were totally into it and the detail was great. There were different kinds of ghouls and goblins and monsters to creep you out. Half the time it was pitch black so you didn't know what was going to jump out at you. Definitely recommend it if you want a good scare.

  • Imaginative, scary and fun!!

    The crew at Darkness Rising provide you with plenty of jumps and scary moments that will leave you with a great adrenaline rush at the end. This haunt is comparable to Chamber of Horrors (maybe even better) It is reasonably priced and we barely had to wait. Highly recommend if you like to be scared!

  • Best house I've been too!

    The owners greeted us at the door and was very friendly, but when you go into the attraction it was a different ball game! The graphics were superb and the cast were excellent at scaring us and did a wonderful job with their acting during cut scenes. The first two actors in the first room, Excellent intro! I go to at least 3 different haunted houses every October and this beats them all, and on top of it all the pricing was very fair. I'll be back next week with the rest of my friends.

    Went to this haunted house on opening night and loved it. It had a great theme and all of the actors and actresses were excellent. I spent most of the time screaming! Everyone that I went with also loved it. Definitely check it out!!

  • Awesome haunting experience

    I travel the tri state area with my teenage kids each year to haunted holloween houses/ parks, etc and here are my thoughts. Darknessrising is the scariest one we've ever been too. Finally someone knows how to do it right. Genuine scares. My kids and wife literally were on the floor on a few occasions walking through.

    Great haunt at a great value! Always had a blast at the old Massapequa location, and they do not disappoint here in Farmingdale either! Terrific sets, actors, props and scares all combine for the perfect experience. Already looking foward to next year! Darkness rising does it again!!!

    Honestly, walking into this my boyfriend and I didn't expect much. (We're 21) But we were pleasantly freaking surprised! It was awesome & I love that there was a story line. Don't want spoil anything. Great actors who really want to scare you. I'd do this again.

  • Great Value/Scare

    This is a small-business, grassroots-level haunted house run by two young guys who have a passion for set design and it really shows! The staging, acting and props are awesome . . . and it's scary too. Also, love that a portion is donated to charity. Definetly worth checking out!

  • One of the Best

    This place is really cool! I have NEVER seen sets like this one. I was with a group where all of us agreed it was a great experience, the actors obviously love what they do and there are unique scares throughout. Highly recommend this place, really cheap compared to others that charge 2 times the price.

  • Awesome

    This place is amazing! I've been to lots of haunted houses but would rate this place as one of the best.. The sets are very detailed and the actors really get into their roles. The special effects are very cool. Def worth the $18. Oh, and I even ate a hotdog at the Nathan's that's in the building. Will be going back again!
