For those of you who don't know, the House Of Shock is a horror show (MUCH MORE than a haunted house) that takes place in New Orleans. It almost always makes it in the top 3 of the scariest haunted houses/horror shows in the world in practically every list you can find, and prides itself on the title of "most intense horror show ever."
The show has gone on for 22 YEARS, but last year they decided to shut down due to lack of profit. They have a kickstart campaign, which I’ll link in the comments.
Even if they DO reach their goal, they won't be able to keep the show going extensively. They only want to do it one more time
The reason this isn't just a "haunted house" is because there's FAR more than just spooky hallways. There are several other attractions including, but NOT AT ALL limited to:
-Intense Firework Shows
The show is actually so terrifying that somebody had actually died of a heart attack there. (But was later resuscitated by an ambulance).
The show is themed around extreme Satan-Worshipping (but don't worry, it's all just for show). Each year, the event begins with a speech given by a "priest" (of Lucifer) who praises the powers of evil and reminds the audience that god is not present in this part of New Orleans.
The show is alive. It evolves and changes every year, and I don't only mean in special effects.
Every year, there's a different "theme" to the park, which also includes plays acted out by the staff and sometimes popular actors/actresses.
For example, one year it was a traditional Good VS Evil, where of course EVIL PREVAILS. That year, there were depictions of angels being tortured, their wings torn off, and even being forced to convert to satanism.
Another year, the theme was that there was a particular powerful demon who opposed Satan, and so the play, and the entire park that Halloween, was themed around Evil VS Evil. There were different types of demons seen fighting each other, and you could tell who's territory you were (Satan or the demon [i can't remember his name]) by the scenery in different areas of the park.
Areas of the park include:
-Meat Packing Plant
-"The Spinning Tunnel"
-Church of Satan
The park was founded by Pantera's frontman. Just some insight on what level of popularity the bands that play there have.
Look at this scary mother ******
The "priest" I mentioned earlier
