Youth Centre scares
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.
