    Let me also explain a few other things. Yes we did a renovation to The Darkness as if we were going to open for Transworld, however those renovations got finished in phases.

    Phase 1 was done prior to Krampus event, Phase 2 prior to Valentines and now Phase 3 is to be finished just prior to us opening for Scream Break. All Darkness renovations for 2021 will be done within the next 10 days.

    What we did in 2020: Built a new 5 Minute Escape Room - Wonderful Wizard of Oz Escape - Dracula Escape - Yeti Scene (downstairs darkness) Witch Cave (downstairs darkness) New Black Maze (Downstairs Darkness) Snake Cave (Downstairs Darkness) and finally Snake Cave (Downstairs Darkness) - Built a new interactive mini golf

    What we did in 2021: Totally rebuilt our gift shop with new carpet and tons of items for the gift store - Updated our swamp house to garage area with a new pumpkin barn and new animations and theming - Added a haunted conservatory complete with 13 CGI FX - Added several new animations across upstairs and downstairs - Built Frankenstein Escape Room - Added two complete new FX where there was none before an exploding pipe and zombie door CGI FX - We totally re-did the serial killer room with amazing new animations from Unit 70.

    We also had started to renovate Creepyworld just in time for Transworld but we got hit with freezing cold temps and tons of snow. What we had planned was a video mapping show - updated Krampus haunted house - and a new Jack the Ripper haunted house plus a pumpkin barn photo op.

    So yes we planned on opening and could very easy open The Darkness.

    We could change our minds, but right now very distracted with other things going on. We'll let you know if anything changes.

    Thanks Larry

    Updates from The Darkness and St Louis Escaspe.

    As of RIGHT NOW are NOT going to open ANY of our haunted houses for tours during the 2021 Transworld Haunted House Show. Additionally we're NOT planning ANY behind the scenes tours of our escape rooms either. Furthermore our company will NOT be taking a booth at the Transworld show, and I personally will NOT be doing any seminars or attending the show myself.

    I have a lot going on right now and I'm in no frame of mind to do haunted house tours, seminars or anything else. We also will not be doing any private tours for anyone.

    Now for the good news... our escape rooms will be open and they are much different than when you last visited in 2019. Lets start with a game room right here!!! This is the game room for St Louis Escape.

    Also since 2019 Transworld we've added THREE new escape rooms including: Dracula - Wonderful Wizard of Oz and Frankenstein plus a Mini Golf. All of this will be available to book online at www.stlouisescape.com

    I must warn everyone NOW... our escape rooms are #1 most booked rooms in St Louis, so if you want to see them you should start booking NOW! If you wait they'll simply be booked solid by people who live within the St Louis area. We're not adding extra hours, extra times or anything else for Transworld. So if you want to see them you need to book the rooms NOW! The last picture is a pic of something we just themed for Frankenstein.

    If something changes its possible we could do a last minute behind the scenes tour of Darkness but RIGHT NOW there is NO PLANS for ANYTHING. Stay tuned here if something changes. Also I will be uploading photos of the Darkness and Frankenstein finished.

    The Darkness haunted house tour update: Right now we're not planning a tour. I'm also not planning on attending the show however I will be hanging out at my escape rooms. Looking forward to seeing friends and industry people. Our tour plans are really simple... we're currently working on Darkness - Building a new Escape and Creepyworld all at the same time.

    We'd love to open Creepyworld due to the show being in May but our concerns are the show could get cancelled again, not as many people attend the show, etc. To open Creepyworld will cost me well north of $250k and I can't do that for free I'd need at least 1000 people to buy a ticket. So I'm not sure if that will happen in 2021.

    So we're just wait and see what happens... if we can get Creepyworld ready to open and feel good about that then maybe. At Creepyworld we're building three new attractions and totally renovating a 4th. Not sure it will be done by May.
    If we get far enough where we think we can risk setting it all up we're going to consider it.

    As for Darkness we can just open it that is just easy the question is do we want to. So we'll have to see.

    But we will keep you updated. Currently at Darkness we're building a really cool conservatory scene complete with 2 animations and 13 CGI FX. Yeah 13...

    Stay tuned.

    We're also upgrading several other area's of the Darkness including multiple animations, lighting, sound, smell, and adding CGI explosion type scenes. If we decide to open for Transworld we won't post anything until sometime in February at the earliest. if we do something it won't be anything more than a behind the scenes tour. Today we start on our 7th escape rooms. I'll keep you posted. Larry

    Another update... if anyone is actually wondering if we'll do a haunt tour or not and making renovations let me say this. I've placed massive orders with Ghost Ride - Gore Galore - Unit 70 and multiple costume companies - Froggy Fog and some companies you might not have ever heard from before.

    We're also right now producing all new CGI FX and building new scenes in The Darkness then off to build Frankenstein Escape Room.

    I know I said I wasn't doing this stuff anymore but right now I don't have a choice. I'm trying to keep my year around crew employed while we wait for jobs for Blacklight Attractions.

    If I had orders or projects we wouldn't be doing anything to The Darkness.

    The real question here is can we open Creepyworld... well we're going to try. We're going to totally revamp our Krampus haunted house, add a video mapping experience, and a whole new haunted house. We're going to wait and see how far we get after January to decide anything.

    Creepyworld is a monumental task to open.

    Right now we're building a new scene in The Darkness. When we get a bit further along I'll post some pictures. After that we're going to build Frankenstein Escape. Once that is completed we're going to go full tilt boogey on Creepyworld. We'll see what happens. At Creepyworld we plan on a full renovation of Krampus, adding a pumpkin display, new haunt and a video mapping experience. Larry
