Do You Dare Enter the Basement?

The Basement features a series of intense and R-rated horrors that challenge the limits of fear. Not an escape room, not a traditional haunted house, it’s an immersive and interactive horror experience featured on CBS News, Buzzfeed, and Late Night with Seth Meyers.
