Apart from the live music and DJ's and the campout's terrifyingly realistic scare actors, that will have you running and screaming for your life (see picture proof below), a new addition to the horror component of the campout; the 'Escape Cage' challenge has been announced to up the ante. The escape challenge will see willing attendees blindfolded, hands cable tied, locked in a cage, and given a time parameter to escape. Winners (possibly thanks to sawing off an arm) are rewarded by the cage keeper; losers face a much worse fate...
Take it from someone who knows; this dude doesn't play around.
4:00 - 9:00pm: The event starts; as immersive scare actors roam the site, live music from Destrends, Batz, Burning Bridges (Triple J Unearthed), and DJ Savage rock the main stage as guests brave the 'death chamber' scare maze and compete in the 'Escape Cage' challenge.
7:30pm: event check-in closes.
9:00pm (approx.): Once night falls, campers gather around the glow of a projection screen for a horror movie marathon, featuring flicks decided by an online vote.
Two types of tickets are available for the campout:
Event tickets (first release $93.95, last-minute $113.95) - includes:
- Full festival access for one person.
- One car park
- Designated camping space.
VIP "Lazy Camper" Package ($134.95) - in addition to your event ticket(s), the Lazy Camper package is perfect for any person or group who tend to suffer from tent-construction related anxiety/rage. Each package includes 1 pre-constructed dome tent (2100 x 2100) for your overnight stay and V.I.P reserved seating in front of the outdoor cinema.
Please note both the event and lazy camper ticket purchases require attendees to bring their own camping mattress/sleeping gear and cinema chair.
