Naked haunted house? No thanks

naked and scared challenge

We’re not quite ready for this blog’s run-up to Halloween yet – that’ll be in a few days – but I couldn’t resist posting this.

A friend of mine mentioned this on Facebook today and I had to look it up to see if it was real.

So Shocktoberfest, a Pennsylvania haunted house attraction, has come up with the Naked and Scared Challenge, a haunted house that you walk through … naked.

Here, see the press release for yourself:

Naked and Scared Challenge

Think you’re brave? Experience The Unknown haunted house with ZERO protection! We dare you to take the Naked and Scared Challenge only at Shocktoberfest!

Inspired by the hit show “Naked and Afraid” on the Discovery channel, Shocktoberfest has created The Naked and Scared Challenge to test your fears and phobias on a whole new level. For the first time ever you can now experience the Unknown Haunted House totally naked! See if you have Gymnophobia- the fear of being nude. Naked and Scared tickets are limited. Online ticket purchase recommended.

Procedure and Disclaimer

Procedure: The Naked and Scared Challenge allows participants to go through the Unknown Haunted House Nude or Prude (either totally nude or with underwear). It takes place at the end of the night after all customers have gone through the attraction. Participants must be 18 years of age or older and must sign a waiver. Participants undress in a semi-private preshow building, experience the Unknown Haunted House, and then exist into a semi-private fenced courtyard where they will get dressed. Participants are never in view of minors or non-participating customers. Naked and Scared Challenge is not offered on Sundays.

Disclaimer: Shocktoberfest has created this experience so their customers can explore a new level of fear. This is about fear and pushing oneself out of their comfort zone. This is not about sex. No sexual misconduct, inappropriate or disrespectful behavior will be tolerated.
*Please note there is an additional cleaning charge if we scare the p*ss out of you!

I totally understand the idea behind this. How vulnerable would that feel, being naked and having creepy guys in masks jumping out at you?

There’s an underwear-inclusive version for “prudes.”

Check that press release for the number of times the phrase “semi-private” is used. Uh-huh.

But I wonder, how many people would actually do it?
