Christmas Nightmares
2 Brighton Avenue
Passaic, NJ

On December 8th, we paid a visit to Christmas Nightmares presented by Night-mares Haunted Attraction in Passaic, NJ. We have always loved the idea of a walk-through haunted house with a Christmas theme and Christmas Nightmares didn’t disappoint. 


Is It Scary

Christmas Nightmares offers creative startle scares and surprises that will terrify some and delight others.


What We Loved

We loved getting attacked by man-eating Christmas lights, the interactive set pieces, and the enthusiastic actors. The surprise ending was particularly fabulous and reminiscent of Beetlejuice. We applaud Nightmares Haunted Attraction for providing a delightfully dark haunted Christmas experience. I mean, who doesn’t love the visual imagery of Santa Claus clutching a chainsaw?


What Could Be Better

Christmas Nightmares is an outstanding off-season haunt, but we always find ourselves wanting a little more. We would have liked to see a few more Christmas details in certain areas, like labeling the hanging body bags “Naughty Children” or “Inefficient Elves.” A creepy soundtrack of seasonal songs and sounds would have added an ominous tone.


Final Thoughts

Christmas Nightmares is a fantastic off-season haunted house. They have fully committed to the Christmas theme and it may become one of our favorite yuletide traditions. We can’t wait to see what they dish out for Halloween.
