City Tech to Conduct Spooktacular Research at This Year’s Haunted Hotel
City Tech is conducting research on Friday and Saturday nights between October 21 and 31 to examine emotional reactions to unusual experiences in conjunction with its Haunted Gravesend Inn theme park-quality attraction.
The hi-tech Gravesend Inn is produced by Theatreworks, City Tech's resident theatrical troupe, with design, construction and operating support provided by students and faculty of the College’s nationally unique Department of Entertainment Technology. This theme-park-quality Halloween attraction, located in Voorhees Theatre, has been thrilling children and adults alike since 2000.
“We work hard each year to improve our audience’s experience,” says City Tech Entertainment Technology Assistant Professor and Theatreworks Production Manager Sue Brandt. “This year, we’re conducting research to examine emotional reactions to unusual experiences in conjunction with the Gravesend Inn. We are looking for audience members 18 and over to participate in a bonus experience on Friday and Saturday nights. The public can get more information from any usher after exiting the attraction.”
New surprises await participants this year in the attraction’s Haunted Suites: who or what lurks behind those closed doors? Beware of ghosts in your midst!! Tickets are $6 general admission, $4 for students with ID. Not advisable for pre-school age children.
