This year escape is not an option - only survival is possible.
This year is the
Anniversary of Phobia House.
The Phobia House staff and the Scream Team is on a rampage again
and will strive to make Phobia House 2015 a year to remember
though you will try to forget it!
To keep things fresh, we have done a 90% re-build and design,
plus we have come up with a new theme for Phobia House 2015.
The 2015 Phobia House theme is
(The Background Story)
Three years ago a young Arizona couple and their six year old daughter were on a cross country trip to visit
relatives. Late one night, actually it was early morning, about 3:00AM, the father could see the lights of a
Hotel approaching in the distance. It was the first Hotel that they had seen in the past two hours so they
decided to stop for the night. And it was a cold night, in fact unseasonably cold.
The father noted that even though the parking lot of the Grand Crimson Hotel was full, the red VACANCY sign
was still flashing in the wildow, so he pulled up to the registration office doors and parked behind an old
dilapidated motorcycle. As the family entered the lobby, the night time cold seemed to follow them in.
The father looked at the front desk and thought to himself, "It seems strange that there is nobody at the
registration desk, however, it was just after 3:00AM and maybe they do things differently here in Michigan."
As they approached the front desk they could hear what they thought was whispering, however, there were no
people in the lobby, halls, nor at the desk. They called out for assistance and rang the desk bell a few times
to no avail. All they could hear was the whispering, which seemed to be getting closer. Just as they were about
to exit the Hotel, the daughter, who had been fast asleep, let out a blood curtailing scream, the kind that
sends chills down your spine. At that precise moment every light in the Hotel went black.
And the childs scream seemed to eerily echo throughout the halls of the Hotel.
As they made a hasty exit, the father thought, "Thank God for the full moon tonight, otherwise it would have
been more difficult to find our way through the lobby and back to our car." And as they drove off into the cold
night, the wife looked back and thought it odd that all of the Hotel guests seemed to be watching their hasty exit
from their bedroom windows. She thought, "I hope that my daughters screaming did not wake them." Then she
turned her attention to her still crying daughter and tried to comfort her. Nothing seemed to work!
The daughter was still crying as the father pulled into the police station parking lot. The father went in
and made a report of the incident to the desk sergeant who immediately dispatched a patrol car to the Hotel.
After taking the report the sergeant sent the family on their way. Three days later the family car was found
abandoned on the side of the highway. They never made it to their destination and
no sign of the young family has ever been found!
As the patrol officer entered the Hotel parking lot he noted in his report book that the parking lot was indeed full,
however, there was no sign of life and the Hotel was in fact in total darkness. With his flash light in hand,
the officer entered the Hotel. As he wandered through the dark cold lobby and towards the front desk,
he heard a whisper and then his flash light went out. Next the officer heard a scream - his own!
As with the young Arizon couple, their six year old daughter, the Hotel staff, and the 113 Hotel guests,
no trace of the oficer has ever been found in three years of searching!
They all vanished without a trace.
Fast forward three years. The parking lot is now empty, all of the cars have long since been towed away,
and the previously three star Hotel is now in shambles due to time, weather, and neglect.
Even the three year old "FOR SALE" sign is lost in the waist high out of control weeds.
The owner of The Grand Crimson Hotel had tried to sell the dilapidated Hotel for three years now but to no avail.
Every time a potential buyer enters the premises, the cold lifeless building, and what sounds like the whisperings
of the dead, dispatches the would be buyers out the front doors. Even though the owner does not believe in
ghosts and paranormal activity, he has decided to bring in an amateur research team to investigate the Hotel.
The paranormal research team has set as their task; To track down, capture, and or expulse the evil entity from the
deserted Hotel. However, shortly after the team starts their hunt, the team discover that they are not the
hunters, but that they have become the hunted. The relentless entity and its servants, the past guests of the
Hotel, the Hotel staff, the family, and the officer, will stop at nothing to take possession of what is theirs.
I am not referring to the deserted Hotel, they already have that. Their intent is to take possession of something
much more precious - they want YOU! So will you make it to the exit, or will you become,
as so many have become in the past, simply another servant to the dark entity? Time will tell!
This year, as you leave Phobia House, you may just be bringing something home other than memories.
So be careful of what you look for because it just might find you.
Phobia House Special Events!!
October 28th 2015
For the eighth year in a row, the Escape Suspension team will be
Impaling and skewering themselves for your entertainment pleasure.
On October 28th 2015, the pain, the agony, and the blood will be real.
(This is not a show for the faint of heart.)
November 1st 2015
For my final night of hosting Phobia House, I wanted to do something special.
Something that no other haunted attraction has ever done before.
This is what my twisted mind came up with!
This will be a timed competition where teams of five (5) or more will be timed going through Phobia House.
Your goal is to find the Entities and make it to the exit as quickly as your group is able to.
You will be given one lantern, a small map, and a bag to collect your Entities.
And your whole goup must make it from the start to the finish.
But there is a catch. There is always a catch!
A typical Phobia House tour is comprised of; a tour guide, special effects lighting, sound effects, fog, and the scream team.
However, on November 1st you will not only be on your own (No tour guide!), you will be in total darkness.
That is correct, every light in Phobia House will be black that night, except for your little lantern!
The sounds will be there, the fog will be there, and worst of all, the creatures will be there!!!
No other light source is allowed. Bringing or lighting of your own light source will end in immediate disqualification.
There are also time penalties for a member of your team not being able to continue.
At the end of the night the fastest three groups will be awarded cash prizes.
November 1st Special Event tickets will be sold from 7:00PM until 10:00PM only.
The cost for November 1st Special Event tickets will be our standard $15.00 per person
Because this is a special event and not part of the Phobia House 2015 run season,
No Groupons, coupons, or discounts may be used for this event.
So bring your running shoes and a friend because you will
not want to wander the halls of Phobia House alone this year.
For updates go to the Phobia House Information page.
Check back often for more updates.
Cost: $15.00 (Cash Only)
Ticket sales start at 7:15 PM and end at 11:30 PM
