The 3,600 square labyrinth of terror takes between 8 – 12 minutes to go through, and about the same time to recover from.

CF patients are referred to the foundation through a social worker at Children’s Hospital. Donations given at Worm’s fundraisers will provide age-appropriate gifts on request such as video games, laptops, MP3 players, guitars, DVD players, and various toys. Until a cure is found, your donations can make a difference in the lives of children with Cystic Fibrosis. Donate here.

The Queen Mary’s Dark Harbor will rise from the haunted bows of a rich, torrid history to scare all those who dare this Halloween season beginning October 2 through November 2. Dark Harbor is pleased to unveil two brand new mazes, Soulmate and B340, and an Exclusive Encounter unlike any other haunted experience onboard the infamous cruise liner.

Screen Shot 2014-09-24 at 12.35.19 AM

Graceful Gale was the belle of The Queen Mary in the 1930s. As a beautiful first class passenger Gale charmed her way across the ship’s dance floor regularly until mysteriously disappearing on her final passage in 1939. The new Soulmate maze will take over the former location of the Containment maze and bring to life the haunted spirit of the frightful Graceful Gale. The story of Gale will unravel as her true spirit is revealed and those who dare will realize that Gale may not be as graceful as she appeared, but in fact is more monstrous than ever imagined. Gale will haunt The Queen Mary in order to lure suitors into her possession. Once she captures their hearts she will have her adoring minions cut them up and reassemble them to create her “perfect mate.” But Gale isn’t so easy to please and only a few creatures are suitable enough to be her dance partner. The rest of the rejects are doomed and outcast to haunt the Queen at night.

On a 1948 Atlantic voyage, third class Queen Mary passenger, Samuel, was locked away in room B340 after a violent outburst. After hours of isolation, crew found Samuel in his room, violently ripped apart. Murdered or self-induced suicide, no one knows. B340 is a new maze through Samuel the Savage’s schizophrenic journey of isolated decent into insanity. Travel through his warped mind literally and figuratively, ultimately reaching the final resting place, but only after visitors navigate a mirage of virtual B340s. Samuel is on the loose, he’s dangerous and completely out of his mind. Through his maze you may lose your own mind and find it impossible to escape.

 b340

The new Exclusive Encounters on board the Queen Mary will take a very limited number of thrill seekers on a terrifying top secret paranormal journey through the depths of the ship that have never been open to Dark Harbor guests before. Those who dare to voyage on an Encounter will be so brave they will have to sign their life away and hope that they return safely to land.

 Screen Shot 2014-09-24 at 12.34.54 AM

The Monster Midway, Freakshow, Mechanical Monster, The Ringmaster, and all of the terrifying spirits of the Queen will return for the horror amidst freaks, food, and live entertainment.

 Screen Shot 2014-09-24 at 12.35.53 AM

The terror begins October 2 and runs for 20 haunted evenings through November 2 from 7 p.m. to midnight. Ticket prices start at just $20 online, with Fast Fright, VIP Passes, and lodging packages available. Season passes are also an option for optimal adrenaline seekers.

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.

954681_467817689983720_232805062_n

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.

1146815_467810379984451_1239276309_o

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.

The Purge: Fear The Night

September 30, 2013 — 2 Comments

This fall, enter the chaos of The Purge: Fear The Night, where all crime is legal for one night each year. Audience members inhabit this dystopian world for over two hours, embarking on their own discovery of six floors and 70,000 square feet of immersive horror-theater!

Fear the Night

Blumhouse Productions, the multi-media production company behind highly successful and terrifying movies like the Paranormal Activity franchise, Sinister, Insidious, and The Purge, will once again take over the historic Variety Arts Theater in the heart of downtown Los Angeles, introducing an all-new, immersive live experience for the Halloween season.

blumhouse-productions-logo-square

Last year, the theater was home to The Blumhouse of Horrors, a haunted house created by producer Jason Blum’s film-production team that attracted rave reviews and capacity crowds. This year Blumhouse invites horror fans to experience The Purge: Fear The Night, inspired by the back story to the feature film. Jason warns audiences, “You don’t watch this story, it happens to you, and you’ll have the chance to wander and explore through it all on your own. Once you go inside, everything you do will have consequences, whether you like them or not.”

maxresdefault

In this new type of horror-theater, guests become “delegates” to the annual convention of the New Founding Fathers, the dystopian governing party of a near-future America, in which all crime is legal once a year for 12 hours. To create The Purge: Fear The Night Blum has teamed with directors Josh Randall and Kristjan Thor, founders and creators of the phenomenally successful Blackout haunted house in New York and Los Angeles.

Once delegates are inside, the immersive horror-theater experience begins in the grand theater of the New Founding Fathers Headquarters. There, they will participate in the annual Founder’s Convention – which is held each year on Purge Night. But the visiting delegates will quickly discover that not all Americans believe in the Purge, and that the intense opposition can have frightening, even deadly, consequences. As they explore, delegates may find themselves complicit in the shocking acts undertaken by a warped government … directly threatened by hostile dissenters … or intrigued by the mysterious lives of elected officials. With every step, they will be drawn deeper into the New Founding Fathers Headquarters.

Politicians, patriots, dissidents, and traitors will directly engage delegates, who will be encouraged to interact with their surroundings and take their own time discovering the long-hidden, carefully guarded secrets of Purge Night and the New Founding Fathers of America.
