Indoor, Interactive, Theatrical Haunted House
Nightmare Vermont is a unique Halloween event in the U.S., combining live stage combat, an original theatrical storyline, and all the best in interactive scares and special effects. The event has run in underground spaces and as part of other community events since 2004 . Thousands of people enjoy the show every year and we’re looking forward to scaring your socks of in 2016
New This Year: Nightmare Vermont’s theme this year is a haunted dark circus. Our venue is the cavernous abandoned grandstand at the Champlain Valley Exposition. We have a big bag of tricks to play on patrons this year. Some of them so off-the-wall that we’ll need every ticket-buyer to sign a waiver to get in.
Wards and Teasers: In keeping with Nightmare tradition, Monster Wards are available at the door for $1. These wards will let all the actors know you don’t like anything up in your face and you don’t want to be hassled. They’ll give you your space and try not to jump out at you. Each group entering the event will have 1 Monster Teaser auctioned off to the highest bidder. Owners of the Monster Teaser must sign a waiver allowing us to make you part of the show. We can grab you, we can get you dirty, we can tie you up. We’ve gotten really creative with Teasers in the past. Be prepared for a wild time!
Charitable Mission: Nightmare Vermont is committed to supporting local charities and giving back to the community. We partner with Burlington’s Maker Space, Generator to support their mission of collaboration among artists, engineers, and entrepreneurs to foster a fertile environment for innovation, creativity and entrepreneurship. Generator is our signature charity in 2016. Other charitable endeavors are our Summer Sling Scholarship, Del’s Ride and Essex Chips. Our sister event, Spookyville Vermont, partners with Camp Exclamation Point.
