Blackout Elements

October 2, 2013 — Leave a comment

Blackout Elements takes its inspiration from the four basic elements (earth, water, air, fire) and includes indoor exterior environments, unusual tasks, and encounters with both odd and incredibly frightening, characters. The scares are still physical and psychological, but the experience feels less like an abduction and more like a journey through a ‘Narnia’ or ‘Wonderland’-like fantasy world gone terribly, terribly wrong.

Over the years Blackout Elements has developed a cult following for its extreme brand of immersive horror theater. Creators Josh Randall and Kristjan Thorgeirsson are infamous for obliterating the traditional rules and limitations of haunted attractions and bending the genre to encompass darker, more extreme, scare tactics.

The interactive set has multiple courses and tormentors, so no two experiences are the same. Climb, crawl, and feeling your way through paths obscured by fog or darkness. Forked paths require a choice be made and create the illusion of being in control of your fate. The illusion of having control over how you explore the haunt makes the experience intensely personal and absolutely exhilarating. The experience is a barrage of horror and phobia scenarios capable of triggering a wide range of emotions.
