You Aren’t Going to Want to Miss the Great Horror Campout!

Post Thumb:


You Aren't Going to Want to Miss the Great Horror Campout!This one’s been on my radar ever since FX artist/geek girl Michele Monaco sent me a frenzied text which read, “OMFG we MUST GO to this!!!!” And after speaking with the Great Horror Campout’s publicist, Brett Ruttenberg, I couldn’t agree more.

It’s Halloween Horror Nights meets “Blackout” by way of Camp Crystal Lake in the summer! Read on for the details!

From the Press Release:
New in 2013, the Great Horror Campout will bring a unique kind of camping experience to Los Angeles. From Ten Thirty One Productions (creators of the popular Los Angeles Haunted Hayride), the Great Horror Campout will be an overnight, twelve-hour experience that puts campers into an immersive horror camping adventure jam packed with content.

Campers can choose the intensity of their adventure; however, whether they decide to stay in their tents with friends or venture into the darkness is all fair game. And unlike during the LA Haunted Hayride, the performers at Great Horror Campout may touch you.

The Great Horror Campout takes place June 7th and 8th at the Los Angeles State Historic Park, 1245 N. Spring St, LA, CA 90012.

With a slogan that promises, “Only the Dawning Sun Will Save You, tents, horror movies, bonfires and marshmallow roasting are only the beginning. Campers wanting an even more extreme horror experience can participate in the Hell Hunt, an interactive experience that will bring campers face to face with their worst nightmares in order to retrieve the items for which they are hunting. The Hell Hunt 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 tons more. Campers will have to use creative thinking and problem solving to find the most coveted items and compete for the title of “Hell Master.” Campers who complete the Hell Hunt will receive a “Golden Ticket” to the LA Haunted Hayride good for unlimited rides during the 2013 Halloween season.

You Aren't Going to Want to Miss the Great Horror Campout!Great Horror Campout is a fur-free attraction and brought to you by “TEN. Great Taste. Only 10 Calories. Get BOTH” and the Los Angeles Haunted Hayride. Disclaimer: During the 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 first rule is that we can change the rules… when we want, for any reason we want, and without notice. Campers will need to be listening for the Camp Headmaster’s announcements for rule changes if they plan on escaping elimination from the Hell Hunt,” said Ten Thirty One Productions President Melissa Carbone.

Campers will report to the Great Horror Campout Base Camp at 8pm, where they will meet the Camp Headmaster for the first time, receive dinner, tent assignments, Hell Hunt Bags and more.

“Even the campers who want to stay in their tents with friends or hang at the bonfire for movies will get ruined…just not as ruined as those who think they’re tough enough for the Hell Hunt. We’re beyond excited,” Carbone added.

Tickets are on sale now at Space is limited and based on availability. Campers will select their tent space online during the purchase process. Persons under 18 years of age will not be admitted. The ticket price is $149 per person and includes: One-Night Tent Accommodations, Dinner, Continental Breakfast, Parking, Hell Hunt Experience, Canvas Hell Hunt Bag, Horror Movies, Marshmallows.
