Long Island's original #1 fall event returns for our 9th season in 2022!

For the first time ever, come see the Longest Jack O'Lantern trail in the world featuring over 5,000 hand-carved jack o'lanterns spread out along a brand new 4,200 foot-long monster of a trail set deep in the woods in the heart of Long Island!

Previously at Old Westbury Gardens, The RISE returns after a two year break to an all new centrally located and easily accessible Long Island venue only a few miles away, and with a MUCH longer trail than you've ever experienced before!

Also, for the first time since 2018, The RISE is bringing back our signature multi-jack o'lantern displays - all hand-carved by some of the best jack o'lantern artists in the country!

In the past, our trail featured about a dozen different themes. This year, we're going BIGGER. Much, much BIGGER. Come see over 50 major family-friendly themes featuring pop-culture and Halloween icons that will surely delight visitors of all ages.

We also re-imagined the sounds you hear at The RISE. This year, we'll have over 50 different music sequences playing on trail! Just like our pumpkin guts, we're going to be mashing up some of your favorite theme-specific music like you've never heard before. And remember, there's no shame if you sing along or bust a move on-trail if the music catches you right.

You wanted more and we're delivering! At 4,200 feet long, our new trail will be the longest jack o'lantern trail in the world. It will be significantly longer than our previous trail at Old Westbury Gardens. Visitors will need to walk about a mile, give or take, from the parking lot, through the trail, and back out to the parking lot. Our trail is paved and has some ups and downs to it, much like the Bronx Zoo has. This terrain may not be suitable for guests who have difficulty walking a mile or who have difficulty walking up or down hills, so please use discretion prior to purchasing tickets and decide if this event is right for you.

Crowds no more! At our previous venue, the trail had gotten a bit crowded at times. This was mainly because we had to get a certain number of visitors through the trail on a short operating schedule of only 14 nights. We're so excited because our new venue partner, USDAN Summer Camp for the Arts, is helping us spread the visitor count over more nights, reducing the number of guests on-trail each night! Plus, the parking lots at USDAN are much smaller, so visitor volume will naturally be lower. The result will be less than half the nightly visitor count than in the past - allowing for a much more intimate trail experience for your family!

Advanced Tickets are Required. Tickets are not sold at the door. Make sure you book your tickets early because as you know, The RISE sells out every year. We've missed you all over these past two years and we can't wait for you to see what we'll be carving up for you this year!

Review This Haunt
  • Email Verified Pretty fun with a friend or family!

    I went with my fam 10/1/22--this was my first time going to a Rise event, so if you're an old hand at these you might feel differently, but I thought it was really good! there were plenty of characters in pumpkin form I didn't expect to see, and probably needless to say the work the carvers and lighters have done is really really impressive. plenty of places to sit for the disabled, elderly, or tired, and lots of the single pumpkins (so ones that weren't part of a big multi-pumpkin display) are also really cute and worth looking at! take your time and take lots of pics

  • Disappointing

    Extremely disappointed. The 2018 event was spectacular. This year was not even a quarter of the display. Where were the pumpkin fire engine, police car, etc.. where were the lighted pumpkins in the trees. This was an over priced event I won’t ne taking the grandchildren to next year.

  • Email Verified Had a great time pumpkin hunt

    The event was well organized. It is fun, not scary and festive enough so that the whole family will enjoy. Free parking came as a bonus. Overall, an excellent place for pumpkin hunt. Check it out.

  • Perfect family nightout

    Have always been a patron and this year was no different. There were always noticeable changes each year. Jack o lanterns has always been a Halloween tradition and we never miss being a part of it. The event was perfect for the entire family. Enjoying a walk through the garden taking in the spirit of Halloween. Talents and mastery were on display with the pumpkins. It is a delight to watch how it was transformed into lanterns. As you walk, you can see everything lit, even the displays. A cool night and the walk with lanterns lit around will make you feel like you are in a mystic world. Awesome.

  • Email Verified Absolutely amazed

    It was spectacular. Even though I have read a lot about Jack-O-Lanterns, this is the first time I have seen it. You can imagine how it feels. Wow..I’m not getting any words to explain. I took my 6 year’s old and 2 teenage girls along with and the all were absolutely amazed.

  • Super impressive

    RISE of the Jack O'Lanterns sort of became family tradition since we started visiting few years back. The artwork carved on the pumpkins was super impressive. The most intricately detailed masterpieces set along a dark path lit by the pumpkins themselves was an awesome sight. It should be noted that the tickets are timed. So be there early to avoid any hassles. Definitely suggest this place to all who’re looking for an entertaining Halloween weekend.

  • OMG!!!!!

    Be on time. They won’t make you wait if you reach at the time printed on the tickets. There were around 5000 carved pumpkins around the entire dark path lit by the Jack O'Lanterns themselves. For us, it took about 30 minutes including the time we spent on clicking pictures. Singing and talking pumpkins were awesome. I had greater appreciation for the artwork when I learnt that a pumpkin lasts only about a week before it turns mushy. Kudos to their patience and effort to create such great artistry.

    Kudos to the creativity and effort put in by the people who’d done it. The appropriately themed festive music keeps you in the mood. Kids favourite was the talking pumpkins.

  • Email Verified Awesome experience

    They never make you wait if you get there at the time given in your tickets. It is an awesome experience. It is simply amusing to see the lanterns and the fact that they were made from pumpkins. I definitely recommend this experience for all. The lanterns were hand carved and each had a unique design. A great showcase of skill. The walk down the garden surrounded by lanterns and other displays that were also lit. An experience unparalleled. You need to be there to feel it once.

  • Email Verified Unique experience

    A tradition that’s never going to end. Jack o lanterns were always a beautiful sight. It is never going to end. We have always been there and never missed a year. It is always a unique experience and we love the idea walking down the garden during the dim hours with around 5000 lanterns lit and rising from the ground.

  • Spectacular

    Each lantern was handcrafted and designed to be unique. It was a beautiful view as we walked the trail and along the pumpkin patch. The celebration was unique and brings together the whole family in this Halloween season. Spectacular.

  • Email Verified Walk through unparalleled!!!

    We come every year, and they seem to get better every time. The walk through the trail and the pumpkin patch was unparalleled. How the pumpkins turned into lanterns was a delightful sight. Kudos to the creativity and mastery of people who made the carvings/designs. The mystic world charm around the place can’t be missed. Entry fee was reasonable as well. Recommend this.

  • 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.
