Sinister Pointe’s: Beyond the Mirror! A Bloody Mary Tale

Beyond the Mirror! A Bloody Mary TaleFor years, Sinister Pointe Productions has been a major force in the Southern California haunted attraction industry. Owner Jeff Schiefelbein and his team of incredibly talented creatives have taken the art of haunting to new levels, featuring bold and innovative past experiences based on popular franchises such as Saw and Silent Hill. Sinister Pointe is also known for unique, highly-interactive ventures such as Fear, and its extremely over-the-top seasonal adult-themed Not So Very Merry Holiday Haunt. For the 2014 Halloween season, Sinister Pointe presents an all-new exercise in terror: Beyond the Mirror! A Bloody Mary Tale.

Theme Park Adventure discussed this new venture with Sinister Pointe’s Jeff Schiefelbein, as we wanted to learn more details and share some exclusive information with our readers, who are eagerly awaiting their chance to experience Beyond the Mirror! Jeff acknowledges that the theme of Bloody Mary is nothing new to the haunt industry; it has manifested in many attractions around the united states for years, from Trapped at Knott’s Scary Farm, to Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Orlando, and at smaller haunts everywhere in between. The more Jeff pondered the lore and idea of Bloody Mary, he realized that while most haunted attractions focused on the actual character itself, none of them had really explored the world beyond the mirror – the ghostly, terrifying realm that the vengeful spirit dwells in; that is what he focused on, and that is what Sinister Pointe’s experience will explore in nerve-shattering detail. It’s an exciting revelation, and we agree that it’s a fantastic way to take an existing character and the mythology surrounding it, and making a unique experience faithful to the Sinister Pointe brand.

REVIEW: Sinister Pointe Not So Merry Holiday Haunt 2013

[WARNING – ADULT CONTENT – NOT APPROPRIATE FOR CHILDREN]

SINISTER_HOLIDAY_2013_7599As songs of good will and tidings of peace fill the air, the smell of warm cookies wafts from kitchen windows, and children dream of red-nosed reindeer and Santa Claus bearing gifts, Sinister Pointe in Brea, California, offers up something a little different than that with its annual Not So Merry Holiday Haunt. Geared for adults – and only adults – this event is a shockingly naughty Christmas romp with a strange and spooky assortment of evil elves, backwoods decorating, and a really jolly man in a red suit! It’s completely over the top, not for the prude or easily offended, and definitely something that no other haunt in California delivers during the holiday season!

REVIEW: Sinister Pointe 2013

One of the greatest haunted attractions in Southern California is Sinister Pointe, located in Brea, just minutes away from Orange County attractions such as Disneyland Resort, Angel Stadium, and the Honda Center. Unlike most SoCal haunted attractions, Sinister Pointe is unique in that it is open periodically throughout the year, giving haunt enthusiasts their much-needed scare fixes every few months. However, each October, power tools, rock music and ghoulish laughter can be heard coming from the industrial warehouse that contains this incredible maze, as the crew preps the haunt for Halloween, reveling with delight at the horrors they’re creating for guests to experience throughout October…

REVIEW: The Empty Grave 2013

One of the local Southern California haunted attractions that Theme Park Adventure has kept tabs on for the last few years is The Empty Grave, located at the Anaheim GardenWalk in Orange County, just minutes away from the Disneyland Resort. This particular haunt has grown (and had some growing pains) over the years, and as the season began in 2013, early word was that this is Empty Grave’s finest yet, which pleased us and made us really curious to check it out for ourselves!
