September 24 - November 13, 2010
NOHO Event Center
Visitors to NIGHTMARE: SUPERSTITIONS
enter a surreal insane asylum. The patients have
voluntarily admitted themselves, seeking protection
from the danger they perceive is awaiting them
because they broke a superstition. They feel they’re
safe behind padded walls, and that they can be
set free if NIGHTMARE patrons break these superstitions
and accept bad luck themselves. They have to…it's
the only way out!
FUN HOUSE, a smaller, equally
demented haunted attraction, is the second component
of this year’s NIGHTMARE. Here, the inmates
are truly running the asylum in a twisted carnival-style
event that visitors walk through before they experience
the main attraction.
NIGHTMARE: SUPERSTITIONS runs
from September 24 through November 13.
