Lionsgate, home to some of horror’s most diabolical properties, is teaming up again with leading Las Vegas attraction producer Egan Escape Productions to unveil an immersive escape experience in the heart of Las Vegas, based on… Wait for it… the Blair Witch feature film franchise.
Opening in early summer 2021, ESCAPE BLAIR WITCH will bring the classic horror film franchise to life in its first ever official escape experience. The new attraction will be located in the same expansive facility that houses the fan favorite, The Official SAW Escape: Las Vegas,the world’s first immersive escape experience themed after the blockbuster SAW films, launched in 2018. The escape experience is another step in building out the world of The Blair Witch, following the popularity of the video game from Lionsgate and Bloober Team.
“Over the years we have partnered with Lionsgate many times to create world-class attractions,” said Jason Egan, owner of Egan Escape Productions. “Way back in 2009 when we first worked with the Lionsgate team to bring the SAW films to life at our iconic Halloween attraction, Fright Dome, I could only have dreamed to be embarking on so many exciting projects with a world-class team. To be able to offer Escape Blair Witch and The Official SAW Escape: Las Vegas all under one roof is truly amazing.”
Can you imagine being transported to the lifelike small village of Burkittsville, Maryland? Your chance is coming soon. Guests will investigate mysterious happenings and disappearances within the community then work together to escape multiple rooms that bring the classic film and the curse of the Blair Witch to life. Trekking through the iconic Black Hills Forest will be just one of the memorable dramatic and terrifying elements that provide exciting twists, putting guests to the test.
“Fans will be able to immerse themselves like never before in the Black Hills forest from The Blair Witch,” said EVP & Head of Lionsgate Global Live, Interactive, & Location Based Entertainment, Jenefer Brown. “We are thrilled to partner with Egan Escape Productions again, and by launching Escape Blair Witch alongside The Official Saw Escape, Las Vegas will become the can’t-miss destination for great Lionsgate horror experiences all year round.”
