Pittsburgh Haunted House collaborates with LEGENDARY to unleash two terrifying attractions based on the upcoming film KRAMPUS and iconic Halloween classic TRICK ‘r TREAT beginning Friday, September 18
PITTSBURGH, PAÂ –Â The fear experts from “One of America’s ScariestÂ HalloweenÂ Attractions” (Travel Channel) have joined forces with LEGENDARY to create two all-new attractions based on the twisted imagination ofÂ Michael Dougherty, the writer/director of the filmsÂ Trick ‘r TreatÂ andÂ Krampus.Â
KrampusÂ will be released onÂ December 4, 2015, by Universal Pictures. This darkly festive tale of a yuletide ghoul is co-written and directed byÂ Michael DoughertyÂ and supported by the OscarÂ®-winning creature-effects wizardry of Weta Workshop.Â KRAMPUS features a stellar cast that includesÂ Adam Scott(“Parks and Recreation”), Academy AwardÂ® nomineeÂ Toni ColletteÂ (LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE), Golden Globe nomineeÂ Allison TolmanÂ (“Fargo“), andÂ David KoechnerÂ (ANCHORMAN series).
The legend of Krampus is awoken!Â ScareHouse’s team of scenic and special effects artists have collaborated directly with Dougherty and LEGENDARY to bring many of Krampus’ mischievous underlings from the upcoming film to life within the haunted attractionÂ Krampus: Come All Ye Fearful. Guests will gain the rare opportunity to admire actual props, costumes, and practical creatures from the film before entering a highly immersive attraction that follows the legacy of Krampus, the iconic figure of dark folklore as old as Christmas itself. Visitors to theÂ PittsburghÂ haunted attraction will journey through generations of holiday horror and encounters with demonic minions before a final confrontation with the ancient subversive force of darkness that rises to haunts the naughty, bringing terror and mayhem in his wake.
Trick ‘r Treat: Hallowed GroundsÂ is a truly ground-breaking and eye-popping tribute to an iconic figure beloved byÂ HalloweenÂ and horror fans across the globe. Guests follow Sam, who represents the true heart ofÂ Halloween, as he leads them into a giant black and white pop-up book brought to fiendish life. Those who break the rules of All Hallows Eve risk facing tragic consequences before midnight!
ScareHouseÂ exists within a 100-year-old haunted building where designers, artists, and veteran fear experts combine genuine history with modern technological magic to create a haunted house experience unlike any other attraction.
Admission includes three terrifying haunts for one price. In addition to experiencing the new attractions based on the filmsÂ KrampusÂ andÂ Trick ‘r Treat, guests will return to the mysterious halls ofÂ The Summoning,Â an elaborate haunted attraction with a masterful blend of art and the macabre set inÂ October 1932Â which explores a hidden world of secret societies, arcane rituals, and demonic visitors.
The Basement:Â Fear researcher and sociologistÂ Margee Kerr, PhD brings the science of scaring to the creative team of the Basement. Building from research on what scares people from a social, psychological, and physiological perspective the Basement takes customers on an interactive journey built to push them outside their comfort zone, challenge their expectations, and scare the hell out them each step of the way.
All guests must be 18 or older and must sign waiver before enteringÂ The Basement.Â Guests will be touched, blindfolded and restrained. This attraction contains high voltage effects involving electricity, very low lighting, tight spaces, strong scents, profanity, moments of complete darkness, water, physical contact, violent situations, and high impact scares.
