UPDATE: Morning show staffers Mike & Christen survived walking through the Haunted House. Listen to their review here.
So you think you’re pretty tough, right? You’ve survived Universal Studio’s Halloween Horror Nights. You weren’t scared one bit by Fright Fest. And Knott’s Scary Farm? That’s just kids’ play for you!
Well, you ain’t see nothing yet until you’ve been to Blackout Haunted House. It’s hands-down, the scariest experience you’ll ever pay for.
The 18 and over haunted house has been running in New York City for the past 3 years and now it’s coming to Los Angeles starting October 20.
Feel free to come with a group of friends, but you are forced to walk through Blackout Haunted House alone. It is designed to “to induce terror and breach comfort zones such as tight spaces, intensely violent and sexual situations, and complete and utter darkness.”
Randall never reveals what happens inside until after the house is officially open, but the waiver you sign before you enter warns that you may encounter fog, strobe lights, complete darkness, crawling, stairs, loud noises, water, physical contact, and sexual and violent situations.
One reviewer said last year’s experience in NYC included being handcuffed, having a fake needle injected into his arm, and getting a hood tossed over his head before being subjected to water boarding…and that’s just the tame stuff we are allowed to post on this website!
Attendants will provide a protective mask and flashlight, which you use at all times.
There is no speaking allowed once you are inside the attraction, however, if you totally freak out, all you have to do is yell “safety,” and someone will help you out. Keep in mind that there are no refunds. Randall estimates that one of every six or seven people get so scared that they have to yell the safety word.
Blackout Haunted House opens October 20 at 207 South Broadway, 2nd Floor in Los Angeles, CA. Tickets cost $35 on school nights and $45 on weekends and Halloween. Check out their website to buy tickets!
