Summary: You and a group of your friends gain private access to the Nightmare Factory Complex in Havelock for your OVERNIGHT experience. Your mission is to complete a series of horrifying adventures with your team. Hunt for clues, Find your way through, and Survive the night!

  • WEAR OLD CLOTHES: You and your team will be subject to potentially disgusting/horrifying/filthy missions that you must complete during your OVERNIGHT stay. Wear something you don't mind getting dirty.

  • FREE ROAM: You start at MIDNIGHT and have 6 hours to complete the tasks at your own pace. In the beginning, your team is instructed on where you start and how to play the game. You will set up your "Team base" in the Mausoleum, and take turns INDIVIDUALLY entering into the Factory to complete a series of tasks that will grant your group access to a deeper part of the facility later on. Tasks will include finding a map without a flashlight in the basement of the Factory and recovering a canister from the Sewer, containing a key to a locked door... etc.

  • SAFE WORD: Your team will create a "Safe Word" for members to say (or scream) if they get too scared or do not wish to complete a task given to them. If your group is playing in "Free Roam Mode", the safe word will allow the person who said it to forfeit their turn, and prompt the next player in the group to try completing the task.

  • Compete in "COMPETITION MODE": Pick your group (and group name) to compete against other teams to become the "Champions of Summer 2015". Get the best time of the summer and win the HORRIFYING GRAND PRIZE. *With only 6 hours to complete all of the challenges, can your group get the best/shortest time of the season? You must adhere to more strict rules when competing. For Example: If ONE (1) of the members in your group says the "safe word" at anytime...your team loses. **Upon "losing", your group automatically switches into FREE ROAM MODE and you are allowed to finish the evening you reserved, but you are no longer eligible for the SUMMER CHAMPIONSHIP HORRIFYING GRAND PRIZE FOR BEST TEAM TIME!

  • When the "Grounds-keeper" gives your group the keys at the beginning of the night... He leaves you there... alone. It is up to your group to do all of the haunted missions alone - all by yourselves. The scariest part about it is, no one even knows you're there... and of course... are you really alone?
