Halloween might have started out as a holiday for children, but adults have definitely joined in on the fun recently with an abundance of adult Halloween activities this time of year! While some of these suggestions are also good for children – use caution – or better yet, leave the kids at home that night and go out and have some fun with friends. These local Halloween frightening attractions are right on Long Island around your Alston apartment!

Spooky Walk – About 20 minutes west of us in Center Moriches is Spooky Walk, Long Island’s longest Halloween attraction, and probably the only one where all proceeds go to charity. A 45 minutes walk through Camp Pa-quatuck, a camp for children with special needs. Scaring Long Islanders since 1989, this annual fundraiser has all it’s ticket sales go to helping out this extraordinary camp. This year their adding beer into the fun, so make sure you bring a designated driver before heading to this fun Halloween attraction.

Yahplank Trail of Terror – Just 15 minutes away from Alston down 495, The Yaphank Trail of Terror is now in it’s 7th year scaring people in the woods of the local town of Yaphank. Located on the grounds of the Yaphank Presbyterian Church, this half-mile long trail through the dark forest will only take you about 10 minutes to complete – so you’ll still have plenty of time for dinner and drinks after.

In addition to their trail of terror, there’s also plenty to do if you’re too scared to take a stroll in the dark woods. Yahplank will have a classic thriller/horror movie playing in their field every night for everyone to enjoy, as well as Bounce ‘N’ Fun with their human hamster ball track.
