Yes you have to buy tickets in advance quickly or you will get closed out-but if you buy tickets for an earlier time they still let you in later-so if friends miss out and have to purchase later tickets you can still hook up. I have always been impressed by the people in my neighborhood who carved elaborate pumpkins. It is indeed amazing the display that is there, and the talent is not to be disputed, but honestly we were bored. Once you see the photos on line, you get it-thousands of pumpkins. It's so crowded, there's really no opportunity to linger and savor and take pictures-so you just move along like cattle. The gift shop at the end is low priced, so you can buy a little something for the kids, but would have been better at a mid point where blinking earrings and light rings would make the child a part of the fun (although maybe distracting from the dark needed) The pumpkins are lit mostly by electric light as far as we could tell, sort of negating the word Blaze. There's no animation, no benches along the way, nothing to change it up. Worth doing if you live on that side of the river, I wouldn't travel from Rockland or Bergen again. Good cappuccino and hot apple cider at the end of what took only just about an hour. It goes on rain or shine, so be prepared. If you've never seen these kind of jack o'lanterns before, you will be astounded. If you have, you will still appreciate the time and work and detail, but for me, I am glad I came so I could see what the fuss was about, but there are other places that we go yearly and truly enjoy and bring people with us (Maples Farm in Middletown NY for one, and I won't ruin the surprise by telling you why!) I will say that The Blaze might make a different kind of first date!!!
