If you happen to be in Orange County at some point before Halloween, perhaps you’d like to test your willpower against the real terror of The 17th Door. It’s a haunted house experience that is apparently so rough and terrifying, you need to sign a waiver before entering. Sounds intriguing, right?
Many haunted houses claim to be the scariest things around (and some aren’t really haunted houses at all, like your local Hell House). But apparently The 17th Door offers something more, with an experience that blends horror and the terror of everyday life. It’s all the work of Robbie and Heather Luther of Tustin, California, and they’re aiming to make this holiday memorable for anyone who dares to enter according to ABC 7:
“There’s a lot going on, where it’s very interactive and immersive and kind of invades your space. You will get touched and you might get wet,” Heather said.
Once curious visitors step through the door, they’re inside the demented head of Paula, a first-year student at Gluttire University.
A group will spend about a minute in 17 different rooms, each with a unique theme and created with a painstaking amount of detail. All of them are filled with monsters lurking around every corner.
