When you were a child, Halloween meant lying awake at night on the 30th hoping no one copied your "Bag of Jelly Bellys" costume, then eating candy till you had a vision of your guardian spirit. Now the stakes are significantly higher; for adults, Halloween means wearing slutty and pop-culture relevant costumes, getting wasted, breaking shit, putting on five pounds or so from all that infernal office candy, and coming down with the flu from all aforementioned activities, just in time for Thanksgiving. To that end, we’ve compiled a list of haunted houses, corn mazes, dance parties and other events to get you in the spoooooky spirit. Click through the gallery for details, and be sure to send photos of your own haunted adventures to photos@gothamist.com!
