It’s not Halloween season without the Haunted Basement. Now in its 11th year, the most terrifying production in the Twin Cities is ghosting in a new home, bringing along a whole new world of horrors. If you’ve never been inside the Basement, be warned that this is not just another haunted house. With multiple rooms and themes, the experience is unique to every person. Can the performers touch you? They can, and they will. Is it possible to be separated from your group? It is, and you probably will be. Is the sheer anticipation and mind-fuckery just as terrifying as the characters waiting around every twist and turn? You better believe it. Each year the Haunted Basement completely revamps itself, meaning that whether you’re a long-time scare junkie or a first-time visitor, you’re in for something you’ve never seen before. For those who need to take things a step further, they will once again be offering the Blind Invocation, which is an enhanced, extended solo experience with exclusive environments and characters that you won’t see in the standard Basement tour. There are also a handful of Fraidy Cat tours available, with no actors and the lights turned on for those who simply want to see what the fuss is about without potentially pissing themselves. For times and tickets, visit 18+.
