(HOLMDEL, NJ) /PRNewswire/ — The Experiential Supply Co., an innovative experiential productions and attractions company driving high-profile viral destination experiences, and Fever, the global entertainment discovery platform, today announced their groundbreaking one-of-a-kind Halloween experience: Haunted O’Ween NJ will land in New Jersey this Halloween. The fully immersive haunted event will take place from September 30th to October 31st, 2022 at Bell Works, 101 Crawfords Corner Rd. in Holmdel, New Jersey.
Hundreds of thousands of guests are expected to enjoy over 200,000 square meters of the most over-the-top, spooky, and authentic Halloween settings anywhere in the country. The storied cutting-edge Southern Cal Event has chosen New Jersey to begin its nationwide expansion.
All Hallows Eve has always been collaborative in nature and origin – bringing people together for the common escapade of turning fear into fun. Though the last two years have thwarted that, the epic concept of Haunt O’Ween is one of the first in the country to showcase the entire holiday in one place – in a very large and unique format.
Comprised of nine distinctive and fully immersive worlds, Haunt O’Ween NJ lets guests adventure through the vast grounds with thousands of photo ops, over 25 live performers to engage and interact with, face painting, rides, games, trick-or -Treatment, dancing and more. Plus, there’s no time limit, so guests are welcome to stay for hours and enjoy the spooky mayhem.
Special attractions include: Dance Domes at Beyond The Grave Rave, rides, games and an inordinate amount of candy. Organizers spent nearly $1,000,000 on candy — all to trick attendees. Additionally, live music, stunt performances and pumpkin carving will also delight New Jersey guests this year.

“We’ve worked very hard this year to create the country’s biggest and most magical Halloween experience for all ages. Over 200,000 square feet of immersive, interactive themes, all built around Halloween – trick-or-treating, pumpkins, costumes and spooky fun,” said Jasen Smith, Experiential Supply’s founder and chief experience officer. “We can’t wait to see to welcome thousands of families throughout the Southern Cal and New Jersey area to our massive creation this year. Be sure to bring your sweet tooth this year!”
Experiential Supply was born in the entertainment industry, providing large-scale experiences for Hollywood film studios. From themed interactive screenings to multi-million dollar micro-theme parks promoting theatrical releases, events have always been free and promotional. When the pandemic struck, the company began creating its own experiences – Haunt O’ Ween was born in October 2020. The original experience was designed as a drive-thru in the Los Angeles area to ensure kids could still trick-or-treat. Cars drove from house to house (which were built by the company) and candy was literally poured into their cars. Similarly styled events in Southern California include Christmas Wonderland and Sugar Rush – a candy-inspired Wonka-like world.
In 2021, Haunt O’Ween morphed into a personal format that focuses on the engaging nature of Halloween and immerses guests in a variety of activities. Over 100,000 participants received over 3,000,000 candies. Bringing the event to New Jersey in 2022 is part of a plan to bring that kind of full immersion to Halloween fans everywhere.
“This is all about families having a safe and incredibly fun place to enjoy their vacation and there’s simply nothing quite like it,” adds Smith.
There will be plenty of food and drink for families to enjoy a full evening. Past sponsorships include FX – What We Do in The Shadows, Warner Bros. Pictures The Witches, KiwiCo, Happy Dad Hard Seltzer, Malibu Wines and The Addams Family 2.
Haunt O’Ween NJ is brought to you by Experiential Supply and Fever, two experts in their field. Both teams have joined forces to curate this production, bringing decades of industry experience as they continue to conquer and enhance the immersive space together. With its cutting-edge concept and constant innovation, Haunt O’Ween will continue to grow into a national phenomenon.
