The Castle of Terror and Hollowed Harvest: Wicked Labyrinth Oct.6–Halloween at Armory Studios NY

Frights and fun for fall!

September 6, 2023

SCHENECTADY, N.Y. — Armory Studios NY and MOPCO present The Castle of Terror, an indoor, rain-or-shine Halloween fright spectacular tangled through the Armory’s gruesome underground spaces, Friday, Oct. 6–Tuesday, Oct. 31.

Darkest fears will be extracted in a mad scientist’s laboratory. Patrons will wander through bat-and-spider filled chambers; a “meat” maze; and an abandoned hospital’s gory operating room.

Along the way, alarmed guests will encounter, thanks to the evil Dr. Schenectenstein, ghastly, misbegotten occupants of the castle, forever trapped between the worlds of the living and the dead—moaning mummies, insatiable zombies and creepy, mutant abominations.

Central to this unparalleled experience are bone-chilling performances by The MOPCO Improv Theatre, assuring that every visit to The Castle of Terror is blood-curdlingly unique.

Armory Studios NY—125 Washington Ave, Schenectady—is the Capital Region’s largest, dedicated sound stage and entertainment destination. Thousands have been mesmerized by the immersive beauty of Van Gogh – The Immersive Experience in Studio A; now, they’re invited downstairs for a good scare.

“We expect The Castle of Terror to become a significant Capital Region Halloween tradition,” says Armory Studios NY Co-Owner Ray Legere.

Castle of Terror tickets—starting at $20 and timed at 30-minute entrance intervals—are available at

Additionally, less-hardy souls can enjoy spooky fun with Hollowed Harvest: Wicked Labyrinth at Armory Studios NY, a family-friendly Jack-O-Lantern festival with pumpkin tunnels, carving classes, jokes, songs and more.
