Halloween isn’t just for kids! For instance, maybe now you don’t have your mom making your costume anymore (maybe you do? No judgements here!) or go trick-or-treating door to door.

LOOK INTO YOUR PAST, PRESENT, OR FUTURE
No, no, I’m not talking about a Ouija board – those are off-limits! However, I am talking about having your fortune read by a Tarot reader with Tarot NYC. It’s a fun way to get into the supernatural spirit of Halloween! Throughout the event, the tarot reader will give guests focused and thoughtful readings, with an intuitive and positive approach. They can do 7-8 readings per hour, so if you’d like more than that, I’d suggest booking an additional reader.

Cost: Available upon inquiry.
TAKE A PEEK INTO ONE OF THE WORLD’S MOST FAMOUS PRISONS

Specifically, The Eastern State Penitentiary, located in Philadelphia, which used to house Al Capone now stands in ruin with crumbling cellblocks and empty towers is a creepy location to take your team.

They’ll help you improve your pumpkin carvings and unlock your inner creative.

GET IN CHARACTER AND SOLVE A MURDER MYSTERY
