URBAN DEATH TOUR OF TERROR: Haunted Theatre Attraction! returns for its 7th year to shock and delight audiences with its fun n’ freaky twist on the haunted house, with their exciting new maze and show attraction!  Created & Directed by Zombie Joe and Jana Wimer, Urban Death first shocked audiences in 2005, revealing our deepest fears through a series of wordless, non-linear vignettes and intense physical performances. URBAN DEATH TOUR OF TERROR: Haunted Theatre Attraction! is bold, terrifying, and entirely unique. You are advised to purchase tickets early, as this event consistently sells out. Don’t come alone.

“There may be many spooky stage productions around this Halloween, but few will approach the level of this one.”  Andy Webster, The New York Times

 

“Zombie Joe’s Underground and Halloween go together like Norman Bates and motels, as demonstrated by ‘Urban Death’.” – David C. Nichols, LA Times

 

“Shows like…Zombie Joe’s ‘Urban Death’ hearken back to the Grand Guignol and Artaud’s Theatre of Cruelty, frightening us in new, experimental, and unexpected ways.”  Graham Skipper, Blumhouse.com

 

“Creepy, sad, sinister, and even satirical, ‘Urban Death Tour of Terror’ is not just the same old nightmare.” – Steve Biodrowski, Hollywood Gothique

ESCAPE ROOMS – Escape Games at the River – CA

Escape Games at the River

Playing this Baker Street Mystery game was a throwback to the early days of escape rooms. It was the type of first gen game that would’ve impressed up when we started playing escape rooms, however felt a little lackluster now. 

We ran into a few small glitches in the game. There was a problem with one of the puzzles not working as well as it could physically that caused us to waste some time and get annoyed. The final lock was jammed. Honestly my biggest problem was the final puzzle’s logic, it felt misleading. Everything else was fine.
They did have one really clever puzzle I hadn’t seen before, but it didn’t really fit the decor of the room as well as some of the other puzzles. The room looks nice, nothing fancy but certainly clean and well kept. 

If you’re in the area I would say check it out. 

ODDITIES – Jurassic Planet at the LA County Fair – CA


I’ve never been particularly interested in dinosaurs, but I heard about Jurassic Planet and my curiosity got the best of me. I’m glad it did. 

For only a small $5 up charge to your fair admisssion you can walk among 40 life sized realistic animatronic dinosaurs. It pretty darn cool! I know they aren’t actually real dinosaurs (except for a few live creatures on display such as an emu, alligator and tortoise), but they seem pretty real if you let your imagination run wild. I found myself wanting to pet them and at one point talking in “baby talk” to a few adorable animatronic baby dinos. 

I really enjoyed Jurrasic Planet and wanted to share it here. I also recorded a bit of my experience which you can watch from YouTube below.
