STEP IN TO AN ALL-NEW HORRIFYING, MULTI-SENSORY AND INTERACTIVE REAL-LIFE EXHIBIT RIVALING ANY HOLLYWOOD STUDIO
Winchester Mystery House in San Jose,CA; the world-famous mysterious, rambling and reportedly haunted home of Sarah Winchester, will present “Fright Nights,” a special event with all-new thrilling attractions beginning September 30, 2011.
On select nights in September and October, the grounds of the Winchester Estate will be transformed into the world’s most terrifying Halloween experience. Filled with haunted walk-through attractions, roaming scare performers, and nightmare inducing tales, “Fright Nights” will be an open house visitors won’t want to miss!
“‘We are so excited for our first-ever ‘Fright Nights’ at Winchester Mystery House featuring a heart-pounding new maze and spine-chilling characters to go along with it,” said Brett Tomberlin, President, Imagination Design Works. “This will be an unrivaled event in a setting that was named one of the scariest places in America.”
CURSE OF SARAH WINCHESTER MAZE
Maze Length: 15 Minutes
For the first time, guests at “Fright Nights” will have the exclusive opportunity to experience the all new “Curse of Sarah Winchester Maze” – an interactive, multi-sensory gateway between Heaven and Hell which will be opened exclusively for visitors of “Fright Nights.” For a lifetime, Sarah Winchester built, built, and rebuilt her house to avoid a treacherous curse and escape her husband’s legacy of damnation. Those who perished by the Winchester rifle are seeking revenge, and are now ready to sacrifice souls before midnight strikes. Visitors experience bone-chilling creatures and blood-curdling moments as they find themselves trapped inside the mansion empowered by the undead.
Tour Length: 65 Minutes
The “Halloween Flashlight Tour” – a fan-favorite is coming back in full force to “Fright Nights” and can only be experienced this time of year. Since her death, millions of people have visited Sarah’s home and many have reported sighting ghosts. Do the phantoms she communed with in life, or perhaps Sarah herself, still lurk nightly in the maze-like corridors of the Winchester Mystery House? You’ll tour the rambling, mysterious mansion with only the moonlight, a souvenir flashlight, and your imagination to provide illumination through the bewildering labyrinth of rooms and stairways.
