For the past 10 years, the Soap Factory has been sending people down into the building’s unfinished basement and scaring the crap out of them. Ghouls have provoked fear, blood and vomit have been sprayed, and quite a few patrons have uttered the safe word, “uncle.” This year, folks who sign the waiver and make their way down the dark stairs will discover a bevy of horrors inspired by real-life scares. People will have to discover for themselves what that means, as each year the Soap reinvents its surprises. Past frights have included inescapable mazes, spinning rooms, and dark abysses with no hope of light. Sound too intense? No-touch and lights-on tours tone things down for those who need it, or go for an even more harrowing experience and sign up for a solo walk-through. Tickets and more info can be found at www.soapfactory.org/haunted-basement. 18+.
