I really thought I’d seen all there could be seen in haunted houses. Trap doors, chainsaws, electric chairs, death chambers, zombies, werewolves, oh my. Well, there is one haunted house attraction in Pennsylvania that has added a whole new level of fear to haunted houses. You can walk through the house naked with other naked folks while monsters jump out at you.
It’s called the Naked and Scared Challenge and is hosted at Shocktoberfest in Sinking Spring, PA. You can read more about the event at the events official webpage.
The people running the show say that you don’t have to worry about people staring at you as you walk through the haunted attraction wearing nothing but your birthday suit; it’s dark so it’s all good. If you go, you get to be naked and scared. The showrunners believe that this a major way to accent the potential fear of visitors. Adding on top of the natural fear of a haunted house, visitors are stripped of their comfort zone.
Here’s what the webpage says about the event:
The Naked and Scared Challenge allows participants to go through the Unknown Haunted House Nude or Prude (either totally nude or with underwear). It takes place at the end of the night after all customers have gone through the attraction. Participants must be 18 years of age or older and must sign a waiver. Participants undress in a semi-private pre-show building, experience the Unknown Haunted House, and then exist into a semi-private fenced courtyard where they will get dressed. Participants are never in view of minors or non-participating customers. Naked and Scared Challenge is not offered on Sundays.
Disclaimer: Shocktoberfest has created this experience so their customers can explore a new level of fear. This is about fear and pushing oneself out of their comfort zone. This is not about sex. No sexual misconduct, inappropriate or disrespectful behavior will be tolerated.
What do you think? Would you do this? I promise you, if I go, I will not post any pictures of myself. I swear.
