About the Haunted Seaport

It can sometimes be difficult to find Halloween activities for little ones that aren’t too scary. With three kids who are 7, 5, and 3 years-old, we like a little bit of spooky stuff but nothing that will bring on nightmares. When we heard how the Tuckerton Seaport’s Haunted Seaport event was family friendly and included a non-scary pumpkin patch for the kids, we couldn’t wait to go and check it out!

Families Review the Haunted Seaport at the Tuckerton Seaport

Haunted Seaport Kids’ Review

Here’s why my kids thought the Haunted Seaport was “super awesome”.

  • There were tons of games that all three of my kids were able to play. Mini golf, bowling, ring toss, and a hay bale maze really kept all of them busy. Added bonus: every time they played a game, they received a piece of candy from the trick-or-treat bowl!
  • The face painter was amazing! The kids were able to pick a character from a book of choices and they were immediately transformed. They begged me to let them sleep with their makeup on to show everyone the next day!
  • There was a huge bounce house that was extra fun to play in because it was dark outside. My kids have never been in a bounce house in the dark and they thought it was really cool.
  • They loved looking at of the animals inside the Seaport. They were fascinated by the little baby turtles and horseshoe crabs, and thought it was such a cool place.

Haunted Seaport Mom’s Review

  • Every single staff member and volunteer at the event was beyond helpful and kind. It was our first visit to the Tuckerton Seaport and we were blown away at the level of customer service their employees have. It was really refreshing to see.
  • It was completely enclosed and safe in the pumpkin patch area. I didn’t have to worry about someone wandering off and my kids could all play different activities at once while I kept an eye on them.
  • There was never a line for a single activity. Even though there were lots of people there at the Haunted Seaport event, we didn’t have to wait to do anything. That made for very happy kids, which made for an even happier mom.

We loved all of the decorations at the Haunted Seaport!


The Haunted Seaport event at the Tuckerton Seaport was a joy to attend. It is clear that the people who work there love their jobs and enjoy working with people. In addition to the non-scary pumpkin patch area for the younger kids, there was also a scary hayride, a spooky walk, and boat rides available. There really was something for everyone to do. We can’t wait to visit the Tuckerton Seaport again!
