Haunted house on The Peak? It’ll be a Halloween nightmare

The Peak could be at its scariest this Halloween. 

Fright Dome, one of America’s most frightening destinations, is coming to Hong Kong, Metro Hong Kong reported Thursday.

The Hong Kong edition of the frightfully successful show, to set up residence at The Peak in September, will feature never-before-seen scenes and 3D technology to wow local audiences, said Jason Egan, the founder of Fright Dome. 

The 15,000 square meter attraction, with two themed zones, Killer Clown and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, will open till November 2.

Inside the haunted house, participants could be chased by scary figures and there is an area where participants will be asked to walk alone.

The fright trip will take about 30 minutes, with several checkpoints where the faint of heart may exit.

Some 20 actors from Las Vegas will feature in the show in the first week of operation, while another 150 local people will be hired, including 70-90 actors, Egan said.

He expects the show to attract 150,000 admissions this year and hopes that the operation can continue next year.

Egan is not afraid of competition from Ocean Park and Hong Kong Disneyland. The ghost houses at those two theme parks are more fun-focused while his is about real horror.

Children below 12 are not allowed.

As for the price for a frightful experience, Fright Dome tickets are from HK$199 (US$25.70) to HK$299.
