From the brilliant minds of ThemeDream Productions and the writers of San Francisco’s most famous immersive-theater show The Speakeasy, guests will have a mind-bending experience unlike anything else in the Bay Area. During this suspenseful walkthrough experience, the audience will trespass into forbidden rooms of the house—never before seen on public tours—confront malicious spirits, and encounter terrifying scenes that will reveal the home’s twisted tales and secrets. Unhinged also presents one of the only after-dark experiences at Winchester Mystery House in 2019. Autumnal-themed treats and signature spooky craft cocktails will be available for purchase at Winchester Mystery House’s in the courtyard and gardens. Craft cocktails include the ‘Corpse Reviver,’ featuring gin, Lillet Blanc, Cointreau, lemon, and Emperor Norton Absinthe; the ‘Spiced Pumpkin Mule,’ featuring vodka, pumpkin, Top Hat Ginger Beer, lime, and all-spiced bitters; the ‘Vieux Carré,’ featuring rye whiskey, cognac, Carpano Antica Vermouth, Benedictine, and Winchester House Bitters; and the ‘“Orange is the New Black” Martini,’ featuring vodka, activated charcoal, Dry Orange Curacao, and Lillet Blanc. In addition to Unhinged, visitors can also enjoy an all-new projection-mapped light show using the home’s unique architecture as a canvas produced by Paintscaping in the Estate’s front gardens, running multiple times on the nights Unhinged takes place. There will also be a giant edible gothic-inspired replica of the Winchester Mystery House created by Christine McConnell of Netflix’s “Curious Creations of Christine McConnell” on display in the Mercantile.
