DREAD THE NIGHT: DYSTOPIA REDUX – Coming to NY in June 2017!

In 2016, Fringe Immersive, The Haunted Scarehouse and infamous shock haunter Russ McKamey put on a controversial survival based horror experience. DYSTOPIA was banned from opening in New York in 2015 and the prospect of it happening looked grim. The Haunted Scarehouse of Wharton, New Jersey offered up their location. DYSTOPIA opened to great reviews and guests traveling from all over America and even as far as Australia to try out the beta version of the experience.

Flash-forward to 2017 and DYSTOPIA is back and the creators have found a venue to run the experience through this June. Fringe Immersive has been collaborating on a multitude of experimental horror, action and sci-fi immersive events since last July 2016 at NYZ Apocalypse in Deer Park, NY. The venue hosts every Saturday a zombie survival experience and looks like it fits the general theme for the experience which is based off Richard Bachman (Stephen King)’s The Running Man and films like Saw, Hostel and The Belko Experiment. A vague description of the experience can be found on the NYZ Apocalypse website. 

“DREAD THE NIGHT: DYSTOPIA REDUX” is New York’s only survival horror escape house that places you in a dystopian future where game shows and competition reigns supreme. Your mission is to make your teammates quit leaving you as the sole survivor of the most intense experience you’ll have this year. 

You will be immersed in an environment of violence, horror, and deceit. Do you have what it takes to survive this hour long experience or will you bite the bullet and quit? 

This event requires groups of five people to qualify. You must sign a waiver and be 18 years of age or older to participate.

Sounds like a new spin on the average escape room amplified by the interactions guests will have with each other and the actors at the experience. Getting your group mates to quit sounds like a task and we don’t know yet what that entails, but we will find out soon enough.

Limited tickets for DYSTOPIA REDUX are on sale now at www.nyzapocalypse.com!
