The 17th Door Announces 2016 Return and Audition Dates

THE 17TH DOOR

The 17th Door was one of last year's most buzzed about haunts.  A first year haunted house created by a couple who had never done haunted attractions of any type before, this experience was nonetheless one of the scariest and most surprising attractions of the year.  The level of detail and theming, disturbingness of characters, surprisingly psychological depth of storyline, and sometimes visceral shock factor thrilled some, overwhelmed others, and generally proved to be a great hit.

They have a lot of work cut out to make their sophomore endeavor meet the hype of the initial run, but Heather and Robbie Luther seem more than up to the task, and last week, they formally announced that The 17th Door will be back with a new and longer layout picking up off last year's story of doomed college student Paula.

The 17th Door Haunted House Returns to The Market Place in Tustin, CA for the 2016 Halloween Season... ‘Sophomore Year’!

Tustin, Calif. (June 24, 2016) - The Market Place in Tustin is normally the epitome of Orange County suburban shopping, but for 4 weeks this year, the center will once again become home to one of the scariest, most intense, most interactive haunted houses around. It will once again occupy the 15,000+ square foot space right next to Party City, between Best Buy and Home Depot.

The 26,000 guests who attended last Halloween season will be thrilled to learn that the creators have 12+ new rooms and a mini escape room in store for them this year! 2016’s haunt will be larger & longer (over 34 minutes!), more interactive with more monsters and more scares... More of what you LOVE and more of what you HATE!!

“The storyline will continue where last year's left off with Paula’s attempted suicide and asylum residency. Same main character, still mostly taking place at Gluttire University. We will be diving deeper into Paula's character by visiting her childhood and exposing where her problems first originated. Her childhood will be a major part of the storyline this year. We plan to focus on developing the story this year and we have some good ideas about how we intend to do that.”

 Gotta love clowns and asylums, right?
