If you’ve got a weak heart or a fear of psychotic clowns, you might want to give ‘It Chapter Two’: The Vaults Experience a miss. If not, and you’re willing to sign a waiver to that effect, then this is one horror maze for you.
To celebrate the release of ‘It Chapter Two’ on September 6, those freaky folks at Warner Bros. have transformed The Vaults in Waterloo into Pennywise’s subterranean lair for a shockingly scary interactive experience, bringing set pieces and scenes from the film to life. And if you’ve seen ‘It Chapter One’, you’ll know just have bloomin’ scary it’s likely to be.
Across 11,000 square feet of disused railway tunnels and nine themed areas, visitors will be able to join The Losers Club and traverse the shadows cast over the small town of Derry by that demonic circus fiend, Pennywise the dancing clown. Undoubtedly, these tunnels of terror will be brimming with enough jumps and monsters to leave you with nightmares. Just try not to absolutely lose it when you come across a lone red balloon ominously floating towards you.
The experience opens to the public from Saturday August 31 and runs until September 4. The first round of free tickets is sold out. More tickets will become available on August 22 at 11am. To pick up a pair, visit the website here.
But be sure to remember… we all float down here. And if you go with Pennywise, you’ll float too.
