Z*STONISH’S FAVORITE SCARY MOVIES/TV SHOWS
> RIPLEY’S BELIEVE IT OR NOT!
> THE ORIGINAL 1978 HALLOWEEN
> THE SAW SERIES
> THE MUNSTERS
> THE ADDAMS FAMILY
Tenneboe’s latest project, Terror 29, is a way of combining all of his passions into a scary new attraction.
“I’ve always been obsessed with Halloween. Growing up my favorite shows were The Munsters and The Addams Family,” said Tenneboe.
“Kids would come up to the door and grab a piece of candy that would float in mid air and then fire would go off,” said Tenneboe.
Originally, Tenneboe had plans to remake the haunted house he remembers from his childhood, but he decided to go for something bigger. With a magician in charge, he says visitors can expect a unique, eerie experience unlike any other they’ve seen before. Tenneboe said he plans on incorporating elements of illusion and magic similar to his methods normally seen on stage.
“I just wanted to do something different,” he said.
“i like seeing it all come together and really seeing my vision come to life.”
Attention to detail is another aspect Tenneboe stressed. He said he hopes avid thrill seekers like himself will have an evening to remember at Terror 29. And for those who have never been to a haunted house, Tenneboe hopes to set the bar high.
It’s not all terrifying, though. Since Tenneboe doubles as a comedian, he’s also added some small comedic elements for visitors waiting in line.
“We’ll have actors out there heckling them and messing with them and joking around,” said Tenneboe. “It gets them laughing and loosened up, and then it’ll totally shift to a 180 once they get inside and it’s scary.”
Attendees can skip the line and get into Terror 29 faster with the RIP Super Pass for only $5 more.
The official opening will be October 8, and the attraction will be open every Friday and Saturday in October. Depending on demand, Terror 29 may offer Thursday nights in October as well.
“It’s pitch dark and you’re given a flashlight and you’re told to go through, so it’ll be super cool,” said Tenneboe.
CALENDAR OF SPECIAL EVENTS
OCTOBER 4 // OFFICIAL OPENING
OCTOBER 27 // CHILDREN’S DAY
NOVEMBER 2 // LIGHTS OUT EVENT
For those looking for something a little less scary, Terror 29 will host a Children’s Day on October 27. Visitors can go through a version of the attraction that is aimed for a younger audience. There will also be face painting and balloon animals from Mr. Twister.
Tenneboe says he doesn’t want to limit Terror 29 to just Halloween. He’s also entertained the idea of hosting a Bloody Valentine event, and even a Krampus themed haunt during the holidays.
As Tenneboe’s creativity expands, he says that people can expect plenty more ideas from him in the future.
