Since 2011, Crystal Lake Tours have given Friday the 13th franchise fans very rare opportunities to tour the filming location of the original film, Camp No-Be-Bo-Sco, an active Boy Scouts camp in Hardwick, New Jersey. Being that the camp is closed to the public, these tours are pretty much your only chance to tour the grounds were Pamela Voorhees brutally massacred a group of unsuspecting teens.
Keeping with tradition, a limited number of Fall 2020 tour events have been announced, and this time the tours will help replace the critical summer camp revenue that has been lost due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Camp Crystal Lake Tours details, "Similar to our recent summer tours, these events will feature a limited number of guests to allow for proper social distancing. Temperature scans will be performed at check-in and face coverings will be required at all times. We will continue to monitor the situation and send updates to all ticketed guests. Please be sure to check on current New Jersey travel restrictions."
"Due to the current travel restrictions, our regular global ticket lottery will not be used for these smaller events. Tickets for these special events are now available on a first-come, first served basis. Please subscribe to our fall event notification list to be notified if additional dates are added."
Additionally, the event's first-ever costume tours start in October!
Each date will feature one or more sessions of the follow tour formats:
Lakefront Tours: Starting at $89 plus tax and fees. These shorter tours take you directly to the center of the Camp Crystal Lake movie set: the lake! You will visit 5 filming locations in this area and have plenty of time to take photos. Includes special gifts (approximately $30 value).
Full Tours: Starting at $159 plus tax and fees. The full loop tour includes all filming locations at the camp and plenty of time to take photos. The evening session of this tour also includes all filming locations – IN THE DARK! Bring your flashlight along to experience our first-ever night tours. Includes special gifts (approximately $30 value).
Tickets are available for October 23rd, 24th, 25th, 30th (All Hallows' Eve), and 31st (tour Camp Crystal Lake on Halloween!), as well as Friday, November 13th and the 14th.
No tickets will be sold at the gate on the day of the tour. It's also worth noting that the minimum age for all tour sessions is 15 with legal guardian, unless otherwise noted for a specific tour session.
