The last few years have seen purveyors of haunted houses stepping up their game big time in an effort to distance themselves from all the competition and deliver something a bit more exciting than the usual jump scares.
And no one is doing things more differently this year than Pennsylvania’s Shocktoberfest.
Located in Sinking Spring, Pennsylvania, Shocktoberfest is a haunted scream park that plays host to several different experiences, including a hayride and even a good old fashioned game of zombie paintball. This year, in an effort to spice up the park even more, they’ve launched the ‘Naked and Scared Challenge,’ daring visitors to take off all their clothes and walk through a haunted house in the buff. I shit you not.
Beginning at midnight, you’ve got the option of walking through one of their haunted houses either fully nude or in your underwear (nude or prude, they call it), and Shocktoberfest’s website assures that the inside of the attraction will be pitch black, so that no one will be able to see your bosoms and/or dangling parts. They also promise that nobody who is not nude will ever be able to see you nude; this way everyone is on a level playing field.
The most concerning thing about this bizarre experiment is that all who take part in it have to sign a waiver beforehand, which I can only assume includes the warning that the park isn’t responsible for any frisky clowns or accidental pregnancies.
It all sounds like the makings for a lawsuit to me, but if you’ve ever had the desire to walk around in a dark building with a bunch of naked people, then you can reserve your tickets now for this year’s Shocktoberfest. The fun kicks off on September 27th and runs through November 3rd. Grab them over on Shocktoberfest’s website.
You can count me out of this one!
