'The Purge' to Become Touring Horror Show
This summer, fans of The Purge will be able to experience what it's like to be in the terrifying world of the movies.
Ahead of the release of The Purge: Anarchy, the sequel to last summer's low-budget horror hit, Universal Pictures and Blumhouse Productions are bringing The Purge: Breakout attraction to cities across the country.
The immersive experience places people inside the annual Purge Night, 12 hours every year when all crime is legal. Groups of visitors will be held captive by a demented psychopath, 30 minutes before the purge begins and must work together to solve a series of increasingly complicated, mind-bending puzzles to escape captivity.
"Our goal with The Purge: Breakout is to bring the universe of The Purge films directly to the audience," Blumhouse CEO Jason Blum said in a statement. "This experience allows fans across the county the chance to immerse themselves in the intricate world that the series' writer-director, James DeMonaco, has so painstakingly crafted. We hope that they enjoy being scared out of their minds."
The mobile attraction begins in Atlanta on May 30 and spends weekends in Miami, New York City, Philadelphia, Chicago and Dallas before its final stop in Los Angeles, from July 11-20.
The Purge: Anarchy is set to hit theaters on July 18.
Tickets for Breakout, which cost $20 each, can be purchased here.
