This Is Real Nightmare Killers - Cold Spring, NY
So here is what we are up to. We were unable to secure a space in NYC to do our planned new haunted house called “I Can’t See”. Instead of skipping a year and doing nothing, we’ve decided to experiment with this new form we were trying to create – a completely blindfolded haunted house – instead. So we have cooked up a very intimate experience outside of the city in Cold Spring, NY, riffing on the “This is Real” milieu of experiences that feel real. We are calling it “This is Real: Horror Stories” and it will last about 30 minutes and you will be blindfolded and you will have to use your other 4 senses while being told a horror story. This is not a haunted house. It is not a walk through. You will be manipulated and controlled when to move. You will be in the dark. You will be scared. You will enjoy it. When its over. Check their web page for new location and driving instructions. Get tickets now: www.thisisreal.nyc
