The ALONE Experience

???? ALONE [an existential haunting] subverts once more the “haunted house” experience with an even more terrifying, immersive, psychological journey. ALONE remains a 30-minute individual, tour where participants become a part of their own nightmare. Unlike haunted hayrides and scary houses, ALONE ditches the typical Halloween trappings of fake blood, gore, sexy vampires and screaming psychopaths. ALONE is an ongoing, site-specific, fully-immersive and existential experience that explores the range of human emotions.

Presenting itself in a variety of configurations, ALONE explores the complex folds of the human psyche, placing you as the participant within dreams and fantasies and nightmares that you may have had and within those that you definitely have not.  Your body may be aggressively touched and moved or tenderly embraced or be utterly left displaced and alone.  Unweave the Rainbow is four experiments in human emotion that explore interaction. When light encounters an object, one of four actions occur; diffusion, refraction, reflection and absorption.

Lore – CreepLA

Thrill seekers are invited to step into an altered world where folklore comes to life. Whereas fear is best kept buried, Creep LA embraces the folklore to unveil the frightening truth: the scariest stories are often rooted in truth. In this space, stories aren’t just tales around a campfire, but an experience that will creep inside and leave you haunted. Derived from Aaron Mahnke’s popular podcast Lore which presents the frightening and often disturbing tales based on real people and events that have led to our modern-day myths and legends. Celebrating the origins of the horror genre, Lore explores the real-life tales behind pop culture’s most legendary horror myths, such as vampires, changelings, werewolves, séances and possessed dolls. Creep LA will bring real-life historical events that birthed many folk tales which ultimately spawned some of our darkest nightmares to life pulling inspiration and using elements from the show.

Upon entering Creep LA: Lore, handlers will guide groups of eight brave souls inside this imagined universe where groups travel through a fully engaging, multi-sensory, 1-hour walk-thru experience within a dynamic and diverse environment of moody rooms, intimate encounters, and terrifying scenarios. At Creep LA: Lore, everyone is part of the experience whether they intend to be or not.

Guests can be expected to climb stairs, run, crawl and hide in dark rooms.  Haunting since 2015.

The Purge: The Breakout

???  THE PURGE: BREAKOUT is an immersive escape-game experience based on the world of Universal Pictures’ THE PURGE.  It’s Purge Night, and your group is being held captive by a demented torturer…with only 30 minutes before the start of The Purge.  Trapped in his house, groups must work together—solving a series of increasingly complicated mind-bending puzzles and clues—to escape captivity and survive THE PURGE.  Based on popular escape room adventures taking the U.S. and Asia by storm, the experience is like a real life video game.  Visitors will be completely immersed into a horror experience.

The experience is designed to immerse you in the world of The Purge and challenge your group to solve clues and puzzles in order to escape. Unlike a traditional haunted house experience, you’re not just a passive viewer.  Think of it like being dropped into a real life video game. In order to successfully proceed through the experience, your group must work together to solve clues and puzzles, unlock mysteries, and confront a variety of physical and mental challenges to escape before Purge Night begins.
