Youth Cen­tre scares

Rotorua Review - - YOUR LOCAL NEWS - BENN BATH­GATE

It’s so scary they don’t just have one safe word, but two.

The Ro­torua Youth Cen­tre is gear­ing up for it’s 2017 House of Hor­rors ex­pe­ri­ence, this year en­ti­tled ‘Pur­ga­tory’, and or­gan­is­ers are promis­ing a night of ter­ror for par­tic­i­pants.

‘‘It could get dirty and bloody and wet. It’s dis­gust­ing,’’ said or­gan­iser Brenda Cur­rie.

Cur­rie said they’ve been work­ing on the youth-based hor­ror maze ex­pe­ri­ence since Jan­uary.

‘‘There’s al­ways a story line be­hind what we’ve done. [But] any­thing can hap­pen, be pre­pared to run for your life.’’

Fel­low or­gan­iser Sara Fitzell said ev­ery­one tak­ing part in the House of Hor­rors is told a safe word be­fore en­ter­ing. Say it once and the ac­tors freeze, say it three times and se­cu­rity es­corts you out.

‘‘We’ve had a lot of peo­ple pull out,’’ she said.

Par­tic­i­pants en­ter the maze in teams of five ev­ery five min­utes, and a team of per­form­ers - aged from seven to 60 - will then do their best to scare the life out of them.

House of Hor­rors takes place at the Ro­torua Youth Cen­tre, 6 Te Ngae Rd, be­tween Oc­to­ber 11-14, 7pm10.30pm.

Tick­ets are avail­able on­line at ro­toru­ay­outh­cen­tre.org/ house­ofhor­rors.

Jur­rell Fitzell, Holly Platt and Ki­larhn Fitzell are ready for fright night.
