If you travel Route 18, you've probably seen the signs for "Evans Area". Do you know what the Evans Area is, though?

Would you believe me if I told you that it was a top secret government installation that had a hand in the development of radio, some of the breakthroughs that made space exploration possible, and housed a state of the art nuclear radiation lab?

Not only is that all true, but it's now open to the public as The InfoAge Science History Museum. And this month, the former Camp Evans becomes The Base Of Terror.

Evey October, dozens of volunteers come together; from costume designers to set decorators, lighting designers to makeup artists, to bring one of the scariest haunted attractions to the Shore.

The Base Of Terror is open every Friday and Saturday in October from 7-11pm. Admission is $17, and first responders with valid ID will receive a $5 discount. The event is non-profit, and all proceeds to go the historic preservation of Camp Evans.

Want to win tickets? Come join me tomorrow, October 15th, from 10am - Noon at the grand opening of Causeway Hyundai on Route 72 in Manahawkin! Just find me, tell me you saw this post, and I'll hook the first 5 people up with a pair of passes to The Base Of Terror!
