Halloween is coming. You know what that means: naughty costumes, rowdy parades and way too much candy corn.
But maybe you’ve grown tired of your usual haunts. In that case, you’re in luck: New York just unleashed a whole new load of spooky. Dare to be scared? Try hitting these.
Haunt your dreams
At the immersive theatrical experience that is “The Cooping Theory 1969,” you’ll travel back in time to the tail end of the ’60s to meet the six members of the mysterious Poe Society.
After drinks and meet-and-greets, Edgar Allan Poe’s admirers try to channel the dead writer in a séance. But things go wildly wrong. As Poe’s spirit takes over, the party becomes a choose-your-own-adventure quest inside a 10-room labyrinth, as the Poe Society members start to sink into madness.
“It’s like being inside a ’60s [Dario] Argento horror movie,” creator Aaron Salazar tells The Post of this over-two-hours-long cinematic scarefest.
“Be brave, make choices and explore,” Salazar suggests if you want to get the most out of this paranormal adventure.
Through Nov. 2, hours vary. 21 and over. Tickets $75, $25 food and drink minimum. 244 W. 54th St.; Knock3Xs.com
Dead or alive
Billed as one of the scariest haunted houses in the country, Bane Haunted House is making its NYC debut this year, after moving from Livingston, New Jersey, to (aptly enough) Hell’s Kitchen.
Along the way, it’s shot up from one floor to three, offering new rooms and tripling the terror, says Bane’s CEO, Jennifer Condron. Staircases lead to more thrills, forcing visitors to crawl and slide through the horrifyingly haunted home.
It takes about half an hour to make it through — depending on how fast you can run. If you can’t handle the scare, yell “Mercy!” and you’ll be escorted out. Beware, though, that you will be perp-walked and mocked by the staff. In the two weeks that Bane’s been open this year, Condron says, there have already been 200 mercy cries.
If you can’t handle the fear but want to know how it goes down, Bane offers “Happily Haunted” tours of the space where kids and the soft-hearted can walk through, scare-free. (Happily Haunted, all ages, Sundays through Oct. 27, 3 to 5 p.m.; $10.)
Through Nov. 9, hours vary. 12 and over. Tickets $35-$55. 618 W. 46th St.; BaneHauntedHouse.com
In cold blood
The patio at the Springs bar in Greenpoint has been transformed into the Walk of Fear, a gore-filled fantasy. Think decapitated doll heads meets disco balls meets Instagram.
The 5,000-foot-patio has been enclosed and designed into three creepy vignettes: a bloody murder scene, a graveyard and a spiderweb of hanging trinkets. Though on the scary side, everything is photo-ready.
The cocktail menu is haunted with spooky spirits ($13 each) as well: a slushy version of a Blood and Sands, Zombie Blood—a fruity blue drink with a black sugar rim—and a bourbon and pumpkin spice slushy called a Pumpkin Crush.
On Oct. 25 and 26, come in costume for a dance party.
Through Oct. 31, Sundays to Thursdays, 6 to 11 p.m., Fridays and Saturdays, 6 p.m. to midnight. Free for adults with one drink minimum, kids $5. 224 Franklin St, Greenpoint; TheSprings-BK.com
See no evil
At “I Can’t See,” it’s all in the name: Visitors are blindfolded and don rain ponchos as they travel through this immersive scare scene.
Deprived of sight, you’ll have to rely on your other senses to guide you through this 45-minute harrowing journey. Upon entering, you’ll strap on a headset, which will feed you the plot and instructions. Everyone is given the same experience: You are a character named Sam, and you and your friends break into a house that’s rumored to be haunted.
To stay on track, you’ll clutch what the team calls an “umbilical,” which changes texture as you move through. The audio guides you through the house, feeding you the story, instructions and fear. You’ll also be smelling and tasting. (Don’t worry: Everything’s hypoallergenic and vegan.)
“The scariest part when entering a haunted house is the fear of what you’re about to encounter,” creator Timothy Haskell tells The Post. “I Can’t See” is an entire experience based around that feeling.
Through Nov. 3, hours vary. Ages 16 and up (people 12 to 15 must be accompanied by a parent). Tickets $45-$50, $20 student rush available. 133 Greenwich St.; NightmareNYC.com
At Best Dog Day Ever: Halloween Edition, your pooch gets the pumpkin treatment.
This 16,000-square-foot fun house was designed with furry friends in mind, and so it’s all treats and no tricks. Pups of all sizes can find something to play with at the pumpkin patch toy pit. To get there, they can slide down a ramp that’s equipped with a slo-mo camera.
Dog owners can time their pups as they race through a corn maze. Choose among the many costumes — banana, pumpkin, witch or rainbow — and let your dog model it in front of a 180-degree camera, with GIFs you can share online. You brought your own costume? Show it off in the costume parade.
Some areas require a leash, but in others dogs can roam free. Pups can cap off the adventure by enjoying a nutty and cheese- flavored sundae.
Don’t have a dog of your own? Project Forever Home will be on site to let you adopt a pooch.
Through Oct. 27, hours vary. Tickets $15-$79. 25 Kent Ave., Williamsburg; BestDogDayEver.com
Back for its 10th, terrifying year, “Blackout” is pulling out all the stops.
A 25-minute-long exercise in horror, Blackout requires visitors to wear a surgical mask during the proceedings, which play on realistic fears. This year’s edition combines a mix of new and old favorites. One past horror involved meeting a naked man who lured you into a bathroom where you were forced to reach into a toilet and get a key. Once you held the key, you had to rescue a woman who was chained to the ground and escape the house with her.
Expect to experience “aggressive physical contact,” says Josh Randall, one of the evil masterminds behind the show. But no one will get hurt, he promises. “Nothing we do is going to be as scary as what’s in your own head.”
Through Nov. 3, hours vary. 18 and over. Tickets $55-75. 342 West 37th St.; TheBlackoutExperience.com
