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.

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.”

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.

For 40 years, people have claimed to hear, see, and feel all manner of mysterious happenings at Heritage Square Museum. Whether it is the nature of the Victorian architecture, the historic furnishings and paintings on display or something all-together different, “ghost sightings” have occurred at the museum since its inception. Join Haunted Orange County for another paranormal investigation as they venture into Haunted LA County to investigate the museum hauntings.

Heritage Square Museum is a living history museum that explores the settlement and development of Southern California during its first 100 years of statehood. 

Valley-Knudsen-Garden-House

During the day it transports visitors to the end of the 19th century, when California was a fledgling state and the former cow town, El Pueblo de Los Angeles, began shaping itself into the metropolis it is today.

At night after the sun sets, the visitors depart, and the last staff locks up for the night, its long time residents still roam the halls of its old Victorian mansions.

Recently Haunted Orange County had the opportunity to investigate this property and they’ve gathered some compelling evidence, including disembodied voices on EVP and ITC sessions as well as physical contact and various personal experiences by their investigators. For only the second time, members of the general public will be able to experience these historic structures with a group of highly experienced paranormal investigators with Haunted Orange County

Screen Shot 2013-09-19 at 8.39.33 PM

All guests will be divided into four groups that you will remain with all night and rotate through each of the four mansions. Each mansion will have a lead investigator stationed there who will lead the groups as they cycle through. Guests will experience a different lead investigator at each of the stops. The four lead investigators will be, Chad Lindberg, Jason Gates, Don Staggs, and Ellen Stops. Guests will have an opportunity to investigate with all of the lead investigators.
