You, me, and every zombie we know: Terror Behind The Walls @ ESP!
Terror Round Two! The previous Terror Behind The Walls outing was a blast. My group got assaulted, kidnapped, tackled, frightened, and one person actually left less than ten minutes in because he was too scared.

The next excursion is scheduled for Tuesday, October 15th at 8pm. I have a coupon code which knocks the price down to $15 a ticket. MeMail me and I’ll gladly send you one.

If you haven’t gone in a few years, you’ll want to check it out. This is by far the best Terror ever. We'll probably grab drinks at Jack's Firehouse before/after the event as well.

I haven't been before. Are the ticket entry times accurate? I heard there was a multi hour line to get in, but that may have been for door tickets.

Tickets are sold in half-hour blocks. Our tickets are for 8pm which lets us in anytime from 8-8:30pm.

I've gone twice so far this year, both times on the last timeslot of the night. The first time was on opening weekend and my group did not use the Quick Passes. We had to wait maybe 45 minutes before entering Terror. Last night we had Quick Passes and it took us less than 10 minutes even though the event was more than sold out (they added additional timeslots because of demand).

Terror can take between 40 - 60 minutes to get through depending on how crowded it gets.

It's impossible to judge how crazy a night will be but we could be done with Terror by 9:30ish if we do not get Quick Passes and if get get in line close to 8.

There's also a lot going on at any given point so it really doesn't feel like you're standing in a queue.

Hey, this is tonight! Jack's Firehouse is a good place to meet since it's almost directly across the street from the prison entrance. I'll get there a little before 8pm and try to grab a spot in the front of the bar.

I can't make it tonight. Let me know how it is; I'll be busy trying to keep my entire respiratory system from oozing out of my various face holes :(

Amazing time, as always. Each of us got kidnapped at least once and they threw a couple special edition scares our way. I'm going through again tomorrow on the off chance you feel better by then.
