For all you Steampunks out on the east coast looking for something to do tomorrow evening, there’s a Steampunk Haunted House in New York City that is sure to entertain tomorrow evening.
The Steampunk Hanuted House is held at the Abrons Arts Center. The haunted house focuses on artful surprises rather than blood and gore, so it’s safer to bring the kiddos to rather than the traditional haunted house fare. Here’s a summary via their website about what you can expect to encounter in the Steampunk Haunted House:
In this truly immersive experience, audience members are thrust into a beautiful and terrifying dreamscape of neo-Victorian elegance and phantasmagoric clockwork horrors. Once inside, audience members are separated, until one by one, they find themselves alone, lost somewhere within the three sprawling floors of Abrons’ majestic century-old playhouse. From there, they must choose where to go, exploring innumerable twisting hallways, looming balconies, and labyrinthine cellars. All the while, a whirlwind of mechanical apparitions, wraithlike sleepwalkers, and gear-powered beasts hurtle through corridors and lurk behind every corner and within every room.
Created by Bessie Award-winning artists, the Steampunk Haunted House is an integration of contemporary installation and performance art, and is an accessible, fun, utterly breathtaking experience. Unlike traditional haunted houses that rely on gore or graphic violence to horrify their patrons, this event chills, delights, and terrifies its audience without having to show a single drop of blood.
Tickets are $25 dollars for adults and $10 dollars for children. Tomorrow, on the 31st, the house opens at 6. Tickets are sold in 15 minute intervals.
