NEW JERSEY'S LARGEST JACK O'LANTERN EVENT RETURNS!

You may have seen us bring jack o'lanterns to New Jersey's Meadowlands Expo Center way back in 2016. By popular demand, we're coming back in 2019! During that time off, we've re-imagined the event and re-designed it literally from the ground up. During this 2-day only event, visitors can immerse themselves in what's essentially a giant jack o'lantern factory where we carve and display over 5,000 real pumpkins!

The New Jersey Jack O'Lantern Factory is a truly unique one-of-a-kind event because it's the only indoor jack o'lantern experience in the world! It's also the only jack o'lantern experience around with day-time and night-time visiting hours! So grab some tickets, leave your worries about weather behind, and come immerse yourself in New Jersey's biggest jack o'lantern experience!

Due to its limited 2-day run, the event is likely to sell out fast like it did in 2016 so we encourage visitors to get tickets early.


2019 SECAUCUS, NEW JERSEY EVENT INFORMATION

THE REAL JACK O'LANTERN EXPERIENCE

The New Jersey Jack O'Lantern Factory, Presented by RISE of the Jack O'Lanterns, is a truly unique family-friendly experience like no other. Come experience the wonder of 5,000 illuminated jack o'lanterns all hand-carved by local artists using all real pumpkins! Accept no imitations and get immersed in the real pumpkin experience!

THE CLASSICS, ELEVATED **New!**

As part of our efforts to make The RISE more of an immersive experience, this year we're overhauling the way we display our classic jack o'lanterns! Previously, we've had thousands of jack o'lanterns on the ground, some as much as 40-feet back from the walking path, causing most to be displayed too low and too far back to really appreciate. This year, we're changing all that. We're bringing most of our jacks within 6 feet of the trail and we're elevating them to various heights so they'll be at eye level or higher for our visitors. You'll feel truly immersed in a corridor of jack o'lanterns that seem to RISE up out of the ground! And, yes, they'll be close enough to touch, and please do! Just don't scratch or poke them - any abrasions cause them to rot quicker and we need them to stay alive for at least 5 days!

INTRICATELY PAINTED & CARVED GIANTS **25% More!**

You know those intricately carved 100+ pound pumpkins we're famous for? Expect 25% more on-trail this year! These ephemeral works of art are meticulously hand-painted and hand-carved by dozens of talented artists who put upwards of 20 hours of work into each pumpkin to make them perfect for your enjoyment!

GOURDS WITH THE GIFT OF GAB **More Added!**

Last year, we started bringing a few of our jack o’lanterns to life in a brand new animated way. We introduced three new jack o’lantern characters on the trail who actually talk! This year, we're bringing two new ones to sing some songs from your favorite animated movies! You'll be singing along and wondering how we brought them to life!

3D SCULPTED PUMPKINS **More Added!**

We’re bringing in some of the top pumpkin sculptors in the country to carve a number of the most jaw-dropping externally-carved pumpkin sculptures you’ll ever see!

MUSIC REIMAGINED **New!**

We get quite a lot of compliments on the music you hear at The RISE each year. This year we're taking the sounds of the RISE to a new level. Expect to hear more songs you're familiar with but with a new Halloween twist to get you in the spirit of the season.

LIVE CARVING DEMONSTRATIONS

Want to see some of our carvers in action? Check out our live carving demonstrations. We’ll have a few of our top jack o’lantern artists carving live and answering your carving questions so you can take that knowledge home and make your doorstep jack o’lanterns the envy of the neighborhood!

DAYTIME VIEWING TIMES (NJ)

For our New Jersey visitors, you won't have to wait until night falls to experience The RISE. At the Meadowlands, we're indoors which allows us to start our viewing as early as 10am. This way, you can find a ticket time that works around nap times and other important things. Our event is the only one in the world that brings together the magic of a nighttime jack o'lantern experience with the convenience of daytime visiting hours. Plus, since we're indoors, you don't have to worry about weather washing out your young souls.


IMPORTANT NOTES FOR OUR RETURNING VISITORS

MULTI-JACK STRUCTURES WILL NOT BE RETURNING in 2019

The RISE is 100% committed to bringing you the best and most authentic jack o'lantern experiences in the world for an affordable price.

´╗┐In order to deliver The RISE experience to you and keep the event affordable, we had to replace Multi-jack structures with other premium content this year.
