Scared in Jersey

PNC Bank Arts Center, Holmdel, NJ

Scared in Jersey is a multi attraction event featuring The Pine Barrens Maze, Mother Leeds Haunted Cottage & The Blood Drums Live performance.

‘Scared in Jersey’ is based on the legend of the ‘Jersey Devil’, which is local folklore. On a dark and stormy night in October 1735, Mother Leeds gave birth to her 13th child which then morphed into a monster. The child sprouted horns, fangs, hooves, wings, and a tail and proceeded to kill it’s mother and midwife. The ‘Jersey Devil’ has been running amok in the ‘Pine Barrens’ of NJ ever since.

‘Scared in Jersey’ starts off with a live recreation of the birth of the ‘Jersey Devil’. ‘Mother Leeds Cottage’. After leaving the cottage, guests travel through the ‘Pine Barrens Maze’, past hideous creatures hiding in the shadows. Waiting to jump out and scare the bejeezus out of you. If you make it through the maze, it’s time to watch the ‘Blood Drums’. The Blood Drums are an exciting, high energy drum and percussion show that is set in a post apocalyptic world.

At anytime, you can make your way down to the ‘Devils Midway’ for a snack or an adult beverage. A great fun night out for the whole family or the perfect Date Night on a chilly October evening.

‘Scared in Jersey’ is open every Thursday through Sunday for the month of October at the PNC Bank Art Center in Holmdel NJ.
