Haunted houses and Halloween has become so popular in New Jersey and there are several great ones. Six Flags Great Adventure Fright Fest is a great way to get a scare, too.

We are getting ready for the Halloween season and there are two great "haunted" things in Ocean County. Fright Fest at Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson and Scary Rotten Farms in Brick.

My favorite thing about Halloween is the haunted hayrides. They're hard to find in New Jersey and especially in Ocean County since there is not one. A haunted hayride is the "best" way to get scared for me.

I was in search of another haunted hayride in New Jersey since my favorite closed and I believe I found it. It was a little bit more of a drive than to Jackson, but it was totally worth it.

This haunted hayride called "Haunted Hayride Terror" is located a C. Casola Farms. It's located in Marlboro at 131 S. Main Street, Marlboro, NJ. (We need a Haunted Hayride in Ocean County.) The reason I love haunted hayrides so much -  is the anticipation of when and where someone or something will jump out at us on the ride. For some reason, I feel so much safer and a little bit less scared when I'm on a hayride instead of walking through a haunted house or haunted woods.

Two Creepy, Scary Haunted Things in Ocean County and opening days:

Fright Fest, Six Flags Great Adventure, select Dates starting September 10th, 2022.

Scary Rotten Farms, Brick, NJ, starting Saturday, September 17th, 2022.

LOOK: See America's 50 Best Beach Towns

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.
