The Reign of Terror haunted house has pretty much maxed out its available space in the attic above the Gold’s Gym in Janss Marketplace, but the attraction continues to push the limits of geometry, moving walls and/or rearranging layouts in order to squeeze in a few new scares every year. For Halloween 2019, Reign of Terror will feature a new Containment section (in addition to the eight themed areas that already exist!). They will also expand the Asylum by twenty-five per cent and add two rooms to the haunted Victorian Mansion.
At this point, additions often necessitate removing the old to make way for the new – for example, replacing, the laser fog section after Miner’s Revenge with a den of over-sized invaders from the araneae family. Reign of Terror recently liquidated its retired props, sets, and equipment at a private sale for the members of the California Haunters’ Society; it’s a pretty thought to imagine that spectacular looking Halloween home haunts that will result.
Reign of Terror is located at 197 North Moorpark Road in Thousand Oaks. This haunt will be open September 28; October 4-5, 11-13, 18-20, 24-27, 30-31; and November 2.
