A haunted house with a pinball tournament in it?!
Completely unique to Denver, and perhaps the world, is a hand crafted haunted house with a competitive pinball tournament at the very heart of it called Horrorhouse Fest. Regarded as the only one in existence, and now in its sixth season, this year’s entry promises to be the best and most impressive as it lands in Denver’s largest and most atmospheric 80‘s inspired arcades: Hyperspace. Hyperspace Arcade is located in the very core of one of Denver’s most enticing neighborhoods the 40 West Arts District.
Unlike any other haunted house in Colorado this one not only happens after Halloween, but also for one night only. Participants (and we just found out this one has a capped attendance at 200) will enter the hauntcade and battle it out one game at a time, trying to get the top scores on the numerous rare and fright themed machines. We have also been warned that only those who actually get a ticket will know for sure what Horrorhouse Fest is truly all about. So only ticket holders will ever get to know the true mystery of Horrorhouse Fest. It promises to not only be the craziest haunted experience in Colorado, but also one which will be giving away a full size, custom arcade machine to the champion of Horrorhouse Fest 2018.
Tickets are limited and can be purchased directly at eventbrite: http://bit.ly/2ob4SVy
Started back in 2013, the first Horrorhouse Fest was actually an indie film fest in a haunted house, which took place over at Three Kings Tavern. Year two brought the idea of fulfilling a dream to create an interactive experience that combines horror with gaming in a totally weirdo and completely unique way. This in combination with it being all ages is the main reason they do it. Bloodshed Deathbath Productions wants to give the weirdest, wildest and most bizarre experiences to the Denver community they possibly can.
Expect vendors of the horror kind, spectacles aplenty, and a huge arcade to play out 80’s fantasies, and that doesn’t even cover the main attraction. The house/fest itself, which takes over half the building will not only contain an improv horror troupe looking at every opportunity to freak you out and make you lose a ball, but also a story that follows along with the games themselves. It’s truly a weird one. Scary? That will be for you to decide. But weird and a blast to attend? Definitely Yes. And definitely a Denver tradition not to be missed.
