The Steampunk Haunted House

Design by Egregore.

Yes, it’s true! We’re making a STEAMPUNK HAUNTED HOUSE!

The Kickstarter goes live on Monday, 8/21/2017; PLEASE DO RSVP for the Facebook event to keep up with the latest info.  Fittingly, it will happen in the darkness of the coming eclipse!

We’re so excited that we’ll say it again…

We’re Making A Steampunk Haunted House!

Please click here to view!

 There’s a lot of research and discussion below, so if you want the short version, here it is:

The world’s largest Steampunk event, the world’s largest dark/alternative social media site, and an incredible, family-owned, hand-built resort in the Catskills are teaming up to create a Steampunk Haunted House which will be available both to those who travel there, and internationally (through special backer-only shows and live walkthroughs!)  That Steampunk Haunted House is actually already 99% completed.  We want your help to push it over the top!

Get ready! First 50 backers will be entered into a contest for having a drink with Jeff Mach and members of the Blackthorne and Haunt team!
