Long Island’s original and most visited fall event, featuring The World’s Longest Jack O’Lantern Trail, returns for our 10th season in 2023!
To celebrate our 10th season, we’re putting out over 10,000 illuminated objects on our trail for the first time ever! This includes over 7,000 hand-carved jack o’lanterns and over 3,000 brand new specialty lights and hand-made Halloween-themed lanterns all designed and arranged by our in-house team of local artists.
Our Long Island Venue
We’re excited to be back at our new Long Island venue with our partners at Usdan Summer Camp for the Arts, located a mere stones throw from the Nassau/Suffolk border. We’ve done trails in a dozen locations around the country and Usdan’s sprawling campus is by far the prettiest and most perfect setting to host the world’s most intriguing jack o’lantern experience.
70+ New Displays! Don’t miss them!
2023 will be a don’t miss year! In addition to the fan-favorite classics we plan to bring back, we’ll also be carving up over 70 brand new never-before-seen elaborate multi-jack o’lantern displays! The RISE features more new themes and elements each year than any other similar event. It’s no wonder why RISE visitors return year after year to see all of our new creations.
More New Stuff!
Also new this year, we’ll have a bunch of amazing photo-ops on-trail so you can get some awesome shots to light up your Instagram feed. And, for the first time ever, we’ll have dozens of fun videos rolling all around the trail for you to enjoy. Our R&D department has a few more surprises in-store as well! Come see how we light up the night woods like you’ve never before!
A portion of the proceeds from this event support scholarships and programs at our amazing host venue, Usdan Summer Camp for the Arts.
Advanced Tickets are Required!
Tickets are not sold at the door. All tickets are sold here.
We will be opening up an additional 9 nights in 2023 in anticipation of the increased visitation to celebrate our 10th anniversary. However, all high-demand early timeslots sell out each year, most several weeks in advance, so we recommend purchasing your tickets as early as possible so you can get the date and time of your choice.
