ANNOUNCING THE 2014 THEME!

At this time every year we announce our next year's theme. This year is no different. We will not be doing KILLERS3. The killers will be put to rest after this season. If you haven't seen KILLERS2 yet you still have November 1st and 2nd to see it before it goes away forever.

As for 2014, most of our fans know, we often open up the shaping of the next year to you guys. We need you to participate and give us ideas for the elements you'd like to see! So without further hesitation, Nightmare in its 11th horrific season will be doing....

The Murder of Kitty Genovese! I always think about her when I'm walking home late at night in my Kew Gardens neighborhood.

Catherine Susan "Kitty" Genovese was a New York City woman who was stabbed to death near her home in the Kew Gardens neighborhood of the borough of Queens in New York City, on March 13, 1964 by Winston Moseley.

Def Alligators in the sewer!

How about back in the 90s the people living under the boardwalk in coney island and subway gangs at night.

To me the scariest thought about NYC is the idea of possibly getting beat up, especially if I were living here decades ago. Tying into that, mafia violence (specifically torture ala Casino) seems very NYC and scary to me.

That's easy. The Son of Sam killer. I was 10 years old. David Berkowitz going on a killing spree. The city was griped with fear.

Indian attacks, when Manhattan was first settled. Indian and slave burial grounds that are now developed. see if you can work-in one of our toxic waterways (Gowanus canal, east river, etc.). Slave escape routes (underground railroad), and carpet-bagging. dead (zombie?) soldiers from the many battles fought here over time. dead workers from the many tunnel digs and bridge builds. dropping a penny off a skyscraper. gargoyles/statues come to life. the various gang/mafia/skinhead related shenanigans over the years. getting rundown by a horse/carriage in the street. secret societies headquartered here. there is so much history to play with...

Pretty sure that is trademarked by "Dr. Who".

Hmm, this is a very interesting theme . . . . Props!

1) CROPSEY! - I think that this "infamous" urban legend could be a great storyline for a major part of the attraction this year.

2) CLUB KIDS - A possible linkage to the crazy, hypnotic world of the club kids of the 1980s and 1990s could be a fun yet intense sensory experience for customers with all the crazy costumes and loud music and flashing lights

3) William the Kidd's "Buried Treasure" on Liberty Island - PIRATES, OH YEAH!!

4) Ghosts of Fordham University - apparently the school is haunted with several spirits. Also, they filmed parts of The Exorcist on site----which could have opened a portal to something :0

5)Coney Island Side Show - and just in time for the new season of American Horror Story ;)
