ANNOUNCEMENT: The Séance – CA

The Séance

A Frightening Interactive Theatre Experience

Written and Directed by Madison Rhoades

THIS HALLOWEEN SEASON- October 2- November 3, 2019

ANAHEIM, Calif., (September 2019)- Summon the dead and step beyond the veil in the world premiere of The Séance, written and directed by Madison Rhoades. Eight guests will sit around the table with Madam Ruby and take part in her ritual. But who or what will be waiting for you on the other side?

This hour-long performance is a frightening interactive theatre experience with live actors and special effects. You will be required to interact with your surroundings and others, living or dead, in the room.

The Séance is NOT an escape room, although it is created by Luke and Madison Rhoades, owners of Cross Roads Escape Games. With a background in theatre, Luke and Madison are going back to their roots to create a theatrical show but where audience is in the middle of the action.

This husband and wife team is determined to break the entertainment mold and continue to create more unique interactive experiences.

Tickets range from $45-$60 per person. The experience is 60 minutes long and for up to 8 guests over the age of 16. Shows are available October 2nd- November 3rd, Wednesday-Sunday until midnight. Limited tickets are available. Please be aware this show involves light touching, strobe lights, fog, and smells. Audience must be able to navigate stairs on their own.

Tickets: $45-$60 per person, on sale now at http://www.CrossRoadsEscapeGames.com/the-seance/

Ages: 16 and up with a parent or guardian’s permission.

Run: 10/02/19- 11/03/19. Wednesday- Sunday.

HAUNTS – Unhinged Winchester Mystery House – CA

WINCHESTER MYSTERY HOUSE

I highly recommend including UNHINGED in your Halloween schedule! It’s an incredible event at an incredible historic location. The immersive theatrical show is a lot of fun. The 3D light show is impressive. The location is known for being genuinely haunted. What more could you ask for?

 

FULL LIGHT SHOW:

ESCAPE ROOMS – Escape Factor – IL

ESCAPE FACTOR 

Fun Time Game Show Challenge at Escape Factor is one of my favorite Escape Rooms in the Midwest. I happen to be slightly obsessed with escape rooms and being a game show contestant, so two of my worlds collided in this experience. I was lucky enough to be able to book a last minute game with three strangers and fit this in my Chicago weekend trip. They were a great team of experienced players. We were able to work together to escape in time. I love the set design and props. The bright colors and familiar themes made it even more like a real game show set. The puzzles were fun and creative. I especially enjoyed the word puzzles and physical challenges. There are a few activities that are especially good for new players such as doing simple tasks repeatedly, but nothing that I found annoying or frustrating as an experienced player (like excessive amounts of math or searching). The flow of the game was spot on. The game master is in the room with you as a character. Most importantly the game was very fun! I highly recommend this escape room for all experience levels.

 

I also played the 30 minute doctor’s office game alone. It’s a fun, logical, clever escape room. The theme is doctors waiting room, so the set isn’t anything especially spectacular compared to their hour games. I enjoyed the interaction of the game master in character. I would recommend the game be played with two people, but doable with one. Overall I had a fun time playing the game and thought the puzzles were enjoyable.

 

Before leaving for the day I played the 15 minute challenge in the lobby. It’s a fun little challenge game. They also take it to fairs and festivals if I understood correctly. It’s a quick, standard escape puzzle game. It’s fun.

HAUNTS – KNOTT’S SCARY FARM – CA

KNOTTS SCARY FARM

Knott’s Scary Farm, where nightmares never end, is one of the top rated haunted theme park attractions in the nation. Scary Farm has something for every haunt lover from frightening mazes to thrilling rides to incredible spooky snacks to impressive shows. There is so much to do that it’s difficult to get through everything in just one night even with a front of the line pass. We attended the media event on opening night and were able to see The Hanging and Puppet Up as well as eat and see most of the mazes, but there is just so much to do.

The mazes were incredible as always, combining jump scares and practical effects with fun technology. Knott’s is really good at storytelling throughout the mazes as well.

The Hanging was a bit different this year. The cast was very talented. The stunts were wonderful. They razz Disney a bit more than usual and the actual payoff this year at the end was…ummmm…non-traditional.

Puppet Up really stood out to me as unique and fun, filled with extremely talented performers. It’s a wonderful addition to the event. It’s unique style of interactive comedy is hilarious. Do NOT miss Puppet Up Uncensored.

Overall this year is an amazing event not to be missed. Thank you Knott’s for inviting us out to experience it.

 

WALK THROUGHS

ANNOUNCEMENT: The Shadow Space (Los Angeles)

The Shadow Space

Best Medicine Productions announces an extended run of:

The Shadow Space: A Haunted Affair

A near death afterlife experience where you, a ghost, get to haunt the living!

Los Angeles- Sept. 15, 2019- Best Medicine Productions is happy to announce the remounting of their popular new event, The Shadow Space: A Haunted Affair. It’s an immersive experience that combines elements of a mystery play, escape game, ghost story and interactive challenge to create something completely new. After a successful run this past May, it returns October 8-Nov. 3 for two shows a night, six nights a week at the historic Hartsock House on Gower St. in the heart of Los Angeles.

What is The Shadow Space?

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to walk unseen? To discover private

passions? Hear whispered secrets? Have you ever wanted to experience a haunting from the other side? The Shadow Space is a new series of performances where the audience is welcomed by afterlife spirit guides, who have arranged a haunting package. They take you into a living home and teach you the basic rules of haunting as the living go about their lives, unable to see you, the guest. In this performance, A Haunted Affair, you visit the home of a couple who are having friends over for a big night~ and the guides were able to learn some juicy gossip on these four people that should guarantee an exciting evening. Over the course of the evening, a simple haunting has a twist that not even the spirit world could have foreseen, causing the audience to take a more active role in the events of these four. Can you help the living avoid an even worse fate than death? Do you dare try?
