The biggest, baddest bunny rabbits New York has ever seen will descend upon Manhattan for 4 days only over Easter Weekend - April 17 through April 20 - for a cage battle like no other. Timothy Haskell, creator of New York’s most horrifying haunted house, NIGHTMARE, and the rest of the Psycho Clan team, present "FULL BUNNY CONTACT," a weekend-long Easter festival with a decidedly twisted and whimsical take on the traditional spring fair. Wander around and participate in games and activities with a main event that pits New Yorkers against hardcore bizarro bunnies in an Easter egg hunt for the ages (though we're not sure it's suitable for all ages).

"FULL BUNNY CONTACT," NYC’s Only Extreme Egg Hunt and Insane Easter Carnival, features a midway, game booths (with prizes), food trucks, a DJ, contests and live entertainment. The egg-streme event take place at The Clemente: 107 Suffolk Street (between Rivington and Delancey Sts.) on Manhattan’s lower east side.

FBC is headlined by this crazy event: Two people at a time, armed with Easter Baskets, are put in a caged-in field and will have 60 seconds to collect as many plastic eggs stuffed with redeemable coupons for prizes as they can. Once the shot clock goes off they start. There are three large Bunnies, however, trying to stop you from being successful. This isn't a football game, wrestling match or an MMA fight. The key here is agility, quickness and smarts. You are not allowed to strike, grab or push the bunnies. Any illegal contact will automatically disqualify you. The bunnies are only allowed to target your eggs. They can block them, move them, kick them, grab them from your hand and swat them out of your basket.

To be clear, this isn't Vegas. The eggs are indeed filled with redeemable coupons for prizes, but no matter how successful you are, you are not paying your rent with the winnings. Most eggs will be filled with vouchers for prizes like gift certificates, baked goods, extra tickets, stuffed animals, tchotchkes and the like. There will be some that can be redeemed for dolla dolla bills ya'll. This event is designed to bring out the athlete in you. You do it because it's fun and you want to defeat the bunnies.

Use Code NM1 for $10 off General Admission tickets (normally $20 Day/$30 Night), and NMVIP for $15 off VIP Tickets (normally $50 Day/ $60 Night). These codes are only good until April 2nd!
