They find that an artifact the crew brought on board causes destruction and forces you to witness Interstellar Terror.


House #7 Name: Reflections of Fear

House Location: Jaws Queue (B66)

House Description: Noted Psychiatrist Dr. Mary Agana believed that if a subject was constantly forced to experience what they feared the most, then over time they would become numb to the idea of actually fearing it. Unfortunately for us, Dr. Mary’s fear is that of death and the only way for her to cure herself is to watch the light leave your eyes as your soul leaves your body.

House Location: Parade Warehouse (B-79)

House Description: Find yourself “Once Upon a Nightmare” as you wind your way across a landscape filled with cherished fairy tales as they have never been told before.

Scarezone #2 Name: Asylum in Wonderland
