Claudia after "surviving" NYC's scariest haunted house, Blackout.
Inside America's Most Notorious "Psychosexual" Haunted House
I scanned the document as a cold-faced woman checked in visitors one by one. What was I signing up for? Yet these reviews could not prepare me for my experience at all, as Blackout is known to change its shows each year.
This is not a step-by-step walkthrough of Blackout. One of the first things I noticed as I got on line on a cold October night was how so many of the attendees were guys—where were all my fearless girls? There were a few, but certainly not enough.

This topic even came up in conversation with a guy standing in line in front me. Once you sign those papers, know that your experience officially begins, and you can only wait to see what will happen next.
This year Blackout announced a new set of rules, which was clearly posted at the entrance:. To be perfectly honest, I was looking forward to a solo experience.
This rule was unsettling in itself as it makes you depend on complete strangers to not cut your Blackout experience short.
Blackout Haunted House
These tickets cost more than the standard group entry. Also be prepared to see actors who are semi or fully naked. Know that legal lines will not be crossed— you will not actually be assaulted— but you will be heavily involved in frightening scenes, and you will definitely have physical interactions with the characters.
You will be touched.
The Dreaded Wait
You will be screamed at. And you will never experience a single moment of tranquility.
The best thing to do is to carry on and follow all the instructions that are thrown your way. This will also ensure you have the best experience possible. Consider this a test of how adaptable you are to a breath-stopping situation.
There were still many visitors presumably first-timers who came out of those exit doors in awe and completely speechless at what had just happened. Despite disappointment with the new group-entry rule, I recommend you visit the haunted house and judge it for yourself.
