Alone: An Existential Haunting


Status: In Limbo. No new events have been announced since its production SIMULACRUM at Camp Fangoria in July 2019. The official website is down, and the Facebook page has not been updated since May 2020.


The Alone Experience History

The Alone Experience made its debut for Halloween 2013 as “Alone: An Existential Haunting,” offering a 30-minute walk-through experience, which each visitor had to accomplish on his own, with only a flashlight. The 18-and-over experience – described as one part interactive theatre and one part psychological haunting – sounded similar to the Blackout Haunted House: visitors were required to fill out a waiver and follow instructions given inside the haunt; refusal to comply would result in removal, without a refund. Guests were advised to wear comfortable shoes and clothes they were not afraid to get dirty.

After a few years of presenting itself as a Halloween haunt, Alone repositioned itself as “an ongoing, site-specific, fully-immersive and existential experience that explores the range of human emotions,” which offered its immersive theatrical experiences at various times throughout the year. It also became a bit more insular, targeting its audience with an insider email list. Locations were not announced; ticket purchasers received information a few days prior to their attendance date.
