SLEEPER: An experimental haunted house

This is no ordinary haunted house. Inside SLEEPER, guests will be challenged to confront and befriend their own deepest fears, interact with otherworldly beings, and determine their own destiny. Descend into dreamstate and emerge transformed. Enjoy live musical performances, costumes, candy, games, and more. All ages welcome.

Warning: strobe lights will be used at the event.
