  • Oh my god this place was amazing, my cousins booked up the tickets before we arrived in the USA. We drove there from Stamford and this place was packed with families and kids and couples from all over! We decided to go when it was dark to get the candle light effect and it fantastic. Hot Apple cider in the cold walking from different pumpkins setups was great fun.
  • I went here for the Great Jack-O'-Lantern Blaze and I would highly recommend it. It is a great Fall night activity. Everything you see is hand carved. Some of the pumpkins are fake but that doesn't minimize how impressive it all is. Tickets sell out fast but it is worth the visit.
  • My boyfriend and I went to see the great jack o lantern Blaze here. It didn’t disappoint! Pro Tip: Our tickets were for the last showing (9:30pm) which was great because we only experienced traffic while arriving and not on the way out. Also, this is great for all ages. They offer coco and snacks for kids and local craft beer for adults.
  • Attended for event The Blaze. A beautiful fall display of carved pumpkin lit at night conducted as a walk through event. A great show for all ages. We went to an early time slot and there was no significant wait. However the later time slots will also face traffic. There are some food, beverages and merchandise. The manor is right next to the water.
  • We went to see the great jack-o'-lantern craze which was amazing! So much detail went into every one of the hand carved pumpkins. Thousands of carved pumpkins were transformed into huge works of art. Some of them even moved. Awe inspiring, wonderful place for kids and grown-ups of all ages.
