From now until Halloween, Rockaway NJ’s haunted attraction Bane promises to horrify you. The “Bane” name comes from the word’s dictionary definition, “a person or thing that causes misery or distress,” not from the villain in The Dark Knight Rises, though that name suddenly makes more sense.
Bane is the story of a young girl named Jennifer whose scientist father ran tests on animals, one of which bites young Jennifer and turns her into a terrifyingly rabid creature. The haunted house is, appropriately, full of zombies and other menacing creatures of the night. If you dare, check it out just in time for Halloween. Bane is located at the Rockaway Mall, and directions can be found at their website. The attraction runs until midnight on Saturday and from 7 to 10 pm until Halloween night. Tickets cost $20, or you can buy the $35 VIP ticket which helps you bypass all the lines there will most likely be. Pricey, but worth it if you want a chilling Halloween experience to remember.
