Join the Zombie Army crew as HellsGate Haunted House has its final dress rehearsal on the eve of its Grand Opening. Watch as John’s decade-long dream comes to life before his eyes thanks to a combination of veteran managers and brand new actors, all pushing themselves to their limits to turn HellsGate into a truly memorable and terrifying experience!
One of Statesville Haunted Prison’s claims to fame is its amazing queue line entertainment. This episode highlights the actors that actually make waiting in line for an hour fun, sometimes hilarious… and often terrifying!
Watch as John takes HellsGate Haunted House’s newly hired actors on a journey of discovery, challenging them to dig deeper than “RRARRR!” and “GET OUT!” to build a back story for each of their characters so that the performances they give have a much deeper context and, as a result, are far more entertaining/terrifying! Also, meet Ashley McCoy (but don’t mention his dad…)!
Our resident Terror Teacher Jillian shows you how to make VOOTS! Are they vines? Are they roots? YES! More specifically, super-cheap DIY props that can be used as vines, roots, etc. – affordable and fun set dressing for your haunted house!
Zombie Army head honcho John walks you through his process of identifying an area that can be improved and made scarier by replacing an animatronic prop with an actor. Watch as he and the ZAP Crew retrofit a room in Statesville’s second attraction City of the Dead to give 2016’s patrons a reason to scream!
