WINCHESTER MYSTERY HOUSE PRESENTS UNHINGED, AN ALL-NEW THRILLING IMMERSIVE HORROR EXPERIENCE ON 28 SELECT NIGHTS THIS FALL
SEPTEMBER 6–NOVEMBER 2, 2019
TICKETS ON SALE AUGUST 1
SAN JOSE (May 30, 2019)—Winchester Mystery House announced today that it will present Unhinged, an all-new, fully-immersive, horror experience beginning Friday, September 6 and running 28 select nights through Saturday, November 2, 2019. General admission tickets start at $44 and will be available online at winchestermysteryhouse.com beginning Thursday, August 1, 2019.
Unhinged invites guests to step into a real life psychological and paranormal thriller, while exploring the dark hallways of the cursed Winchester Estate. From the brilliant minds of ThemeDream Productions and the writers of San Francisco’s most famous immersive-theater show The Speakeasy, guests will have a mind-bending experience unlike anything else in the Bay Area. During this suspenseful walkthrough experience, the audience will trespass into forbidden rooms of the house—never before seen on public tours—confront malicious spirits, and encounter terrifying scenes that will reveal the home’s twisted tales and secrets. Unhinged also presents one of the only after dark experiences at Winchester Mystery House in 2019.
“This year, instead of our traditional Halloween Candlelight Tour, we decided to invite guests to engage with Winchester Mystery House in a completely new way,” says Winchester Mystery House General Manager Walter Magnuson. “With amazing sensory effects and intriguing, suspenseful story lines, this immersive horror experience will truly bring the house to life for a thrilling experience for our guests.”
In addition to Unhinged, visitors can also enjoy an all-new 3D light projection show using the home’s unique architecture as a canvas produced by Paintscaping in the Estate’s front gardens. There will also be a giant gothic edible replication of the Winchester Mystery House from Netflix’s Christine McConnell on display in the Mercantile.
