The Caravan Farm Theatre has been running the Walk of Terror for 18 years, and this year is set to the scariest yet.
Taking place in Armstrong, the Walk of Terror: System Failure explores what happens when a mysterious contagion starts to appear in the community. The night time journey includes surround sound audio, spooky set design, and fire breathing and stilt walking performers.
Each guest will be given a sanitized MP3 player, headphones and instructions to follow along in the 40 minute immersive experience as they walk through forests and fields in the dark.
“The audio by itself is terrifying,” says Estelle Shook, Artistic & Managing Director. “And then we build on that aural experience with lights, sets, and performers, so that when you walk the walk, you don’t know what is real and what isn’t. Mixing this media allows us to create a rich, authentic fantasy world.”
This year’s walk uses strobe, haze, fog, disturbing images, mature subject matter, strong language, and is not suitable for children under 13.
“This is a high calibre theatrical production, created and performed by professionals at the top of their game. We have a professional running crew who manage the entire performance in the woods, and so the entire experience is carefully orchestrated to produce maximum effect.”
From October 13-30 people can take part in this terrifying 4D experience, as groups run from 6 pm to 9 pm nightly. The walk rate is moderately difficult and takes place on uneven dirt with limited lighting. Those with mobility or vision difficulties are asked to contact the box office.
Tickets are on sale now at Caravan Farm Theatre or available by phone at 1-866-546-8533.
