We’re inching closer to the event and we’re beyond excited! This Saturday, October 29th, is Terminal of Terror – our biggest event to date and quite possibly the biggest Halloween event in the area this weekend! In collaboration with HayOner, Premiere Vibes Entertainment, and RDG Restaurant Group (the owners of Raval, Satis, and Lucky 7s), we’re here to bring you an unforgettable Halloween experience!
The Central Railroad of New Jersey is a historic destination located along the Liberty State Park waterfront, which helped solidify Jersey City as “The Gateway to the West.” An average of 5,000- 7,000 immigrants were processed each day on Ellis Island, and many of them then traveled west through the Central Railroad Terminal. During the peak era of the CRRNJ (1890-1929), between commuters and immigrants, some 30,000 – 50,000 people passed through the terminal on a daily basis.
We’re transforming the Central Railroad of New Jersey into a spooky, fright-filled terminal for the day and we hope you’re all ready to join us!
First, we’ll have the family-friendly event, Spooky Terminal, in collaboration with JC Families. Bring your kids to a fun Halloween dance party! It begins at 4pm and runs till 8pm. There will be a DJ, a magician, face painting, a costume contest, and so much more!! Dress up the kids for a great time.
Once the night kicks in, the space will turn into the Terminal of Terror for all 21+ guests. The adult event is 21+ only, and you must have a valid form of ID with you to enter. Have your ticket/receipt ready when you arrive for easy check-in!
We’ll have amazing food at Terminal of Terror from Mexi-Flip, Milk Sugar Love, Burger Warrior, The Angry Crab, and Pizza Vita! Come ready to get your grub on. We’ll also have a cash-only bar, courtesy of Raval JC. ATMs will be available in the terminal.
There’ll be a bouncy house for kids and adults to enjoy for both events. We’ll also have face painters will be available for both the family-friendly and adult events of the day – Bella will be providing face painting, and Maria Ng will be providing face painting, glitter and airbrush tattoos, and Halloween/FX makeup.
During the day, your children can enjoy becoming a tiger or a mermaid. During the night, you can get “zombified” or become a skeleton. The choice is yours!
There’ll be a photo booth and step-and-repeat so you can take photos to remember the night! A Snapchat filter will be available for the night and we have four hashtags ready to go for everyone to use and share: #terminalofterror, #terminalofterrorjc, #tot2016, and #totjc. A charging station will be available, as well.
We’ll have 5 DJs for the day: DJ Bizz Nice, Kev Love, Stadium Status, DJ Obvious, and DJ Rob Cast. Our MC for the night is HayOner, so you know it’s going to be the best!
Join us in the Theatre of Terror and watch your favorite horror flicks while eating some popcorn and cotton candy with the view of the New York City skyline. It’s really amazing.
There will be some “spooky” performances throughout the night. We don’t want to reveal too much!
There’ll also be a costume contest for the night, so be sure to dress your best! Of course, as it is Halloween, everyone is encouraged to dress up for this event. Just please be respectful with your costumes! This is an event with a diverse community.
