Last year, Escape: Psycho Circus welcomed a record-setting 125,000 Headliners to the NOS Events Center for two days of dance music as they wandered through the hellscape of Escape: Psycho Circus. Headliners were transported into an immersive world of twisted attractions, creepy characters, and unforgettable sets from dance music tastemakers across four monstrous stages. Amidst the sinister Psycho Circus, fans enjoyed the revolving carousel, contortionists, fortunetellers, and burlesque shows all weekend long. Over 5,000 revelers dared to enter the 32,000 square-foot Asylum, Escape’s largest and most intricate haunted maze. The frightening theater experience recreated 30 distinct rooms from seven years of Escape storylines, featuring 120 costumed actors and 25 sound systems. Those brave enough to admit themselves into the Asylum were dressed in a straitjacket and mask before entering the dark and dismal halls of the ward. Guests explored the twists and turns inside the maniacal Mad Hatter’s mind, where padded cells, blood showers, and graveyards awaited.
Two-day General Admission tickets starting at $199.95 plus fees for Escape: Psycho Circus are currently available for purchase on EscapeHalloween.com
