I'm sure Goldstar and especially the producers of The Purge are anxious to see new reviews from the second weekend, which is what I went to on Sat., Oct. 5. I sort of had a feeling NOT to go to the first weekend of this new production as there...continued

Another immersive, often ingenious tour de force (literally) from the horror minds at Blumhouse.

Please note that this year's debut apparently experienced some opening weekend hiccups. Hey, ambitious undertakings with a lot of moving parts often...continued

I totally enjoyed this event. I did see the early bad reviews and just chocked it up to being opening weekend. But it turns out the Producers took in all those reviews and gave it a complete makeover. What they ended up with was a great...continued

What is The Purge: Fear the Night

The Purge: Fear the Night is a guided experience that takes you into the massive headquarters of the New Founders of America, the sinister masterminds of The Purge — one night a year in which all crime is legal. Despite the celebratory appearance, no one is safe. Every step takes you deeper into the world of The Purge. Afterward, you can take refuge in our Founders’ Lounge bar area, where alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages are available for purchase.

Is this a theatrical experience or a haunted house?

Blumhouse Productions has created an elaborate guided story for you to experience, one that is brought to life by actors, immersive sets, amazing effects, and scares throughout the New Founders’ Headquarters. The Purge: Fear the Night combines a traditional “haunted” house with expansive sets and a full storyline.

I heard this was a free-roaming experience — what happened?

While The Purge: Fear the Night was initially intended to be a free-roaming experience, we reconceived much of the experience after receiving valuable feedback and reviews from our opening audiences. As a result, we’ve created an experience that limits free roaming and guides audiences through the story and performances … enhancing the intensity, the scares and, we hope, the fun. Visitors will be immersed in the horror of The Purge, and guided through the scenes in a way that heightens the storyline and the overall experience. We look forward to hearing your thoughts_.
