” Occupying a massive 20,000 square foot building at the Highland Mall, the House of Torment is a top-of-the-line scare factory that uses some remarkably futuristic technology. Most haunted houses operate on a trigger system – sensors in doors or floor plates cue effects to go off. The House of Torment instead wires their entire facility with infrared video cameras, which broadcast footage back to a central control room. In that room, trained operators manually control many of the haunted house’s most terrifying effects, able to time them to elicit maximum shock.”
Unfortunately , a message on The Nest’s website states that due to structural issues the House will be closed during the 2013 fright season .
” Haunted houses are great, but they’re kind of a “one size fits all” experience – you get the same scare whether you’re male or female, young or old. The Nest, a haunted house in the Phoenix area, is using technology to mix that up a bit. When you enter, you’re given an RFID badge that lets the operators track you through the house. They also take down your name and use it to crawl for information about you from your Facebook page. As you walk through the house, that information is used in a number of creepy ways, from ghosts calling your name to projecting your zombified photograph onto a wall. It’s remarkably immersive, enough that the staff has reported being punched and assaulted in fright multiple times.”
