Who would you be in a horror film? The first one to die? The panicky bimbo? The hero that sacrifices himself to save others? Now you can find out.
Ever wondered how you'd fare in a slasher flick like Friday the 13th or Scream? Do you think you'd break into full badass mode and save the day, be the first one to die, or be that inevitable scumbag that betrays his friends to save his own neck (and then still dies anyway)? Those of you in the Los Angeles area (or those willing to travel there) can find out courtesy of the Great Horror Campout, a summer camp that lets you live the horror movie experience, without having to die at the end, of course.
The campout will take place over the 7th and 8th of June, in the Los Angeles State Historic Park. "[the camp is an] overnight, immersive experience that puts campers into an interactive horror camping adventure. Whether campers decide to stay in their tents or venture into the darkness, they are fair game. You will be lured out of your tent one way or another," says the camp organizers.
"The interactive 'Hell Hunt' experience will give campers whom wish for a more extreme experience a run for their money as they come face to face (and closer) with their worst nightmares in order to retrieve the items for which they are hunting. The Hell Hunt will be an extremely high-octane hunt for items that will send campers bathing in the blood of a 'Pope Lick,' partaking in a sacrificial voodoo ritual, digging through road kill amongst 'Beasts of Bray' and more. Campers will have to use creative thinking and problem solving to find the most coveted items."
There will of course be a "safe zone" available for campers who have had enough, where they can relax, and watch horror movies while roasting marshmallows. If you are scoffing at the very idea of a safe zone, keep in mind the following disclaimer from the event organizers: "During Great Horror Campout you may be forcibly handled, moved, bound, hooded, chained and subjected to simulated torture by our actors. You may witness strong verbal content, which may be considered offensive in nature. This content is part of the experience and is presented for entertainment purposes only."
The event costs $149, lasts 12 hours (8pm-8am), and is restricted to those aged 18 and above. The only rule? "We can change the rules. When we want, for any reason we want and without any notice." Happy trails!
