ScareHouse is on hiatus for 2019 while the attraction relocates, but the team announced two new experiences for this Halloween Season—a remodeled version of The Basement plus a new escape room, Stalked by a Killer. Both attractions are open Thursday through Sunday from October 17 to November 2.
Scott Simmons (co-owner and creative director of ScareHouse) has been haunting for 35 years, and the new location provided him with the opportunity to explore intimate horror experiences. “We realized we had to move out and reboot a lot of what we were doing. In doing that, it became immediately obvious that we couldn’t take everything down, pack it up, move it, and deliver the same high-quality show all in one year.” So, for this Halloween season, Scott’s team installed The Basement and the new Stalked by a Killer escape room in a venue Scott dubbed “The Scream District.”
“A good haunted house, in my mind, should be about the whole spectrum of emotions. The Basement takes guests out of their comfort zone. If we're doing it right, guests will think, ‘I wasn't sure I could do that. I wasn't sure I could face all these things.’ In Stalked by a Killer, guests become the main character in their own horror movie.”
