On Saturday, 11th March from 6:00 pm – 10:00 pm, fans of fright will be able to experience a once in a lifetime spook fest that is sure to keep them up at night.

Kicking off at 6pm, guests will have two hours to independently explore the morgue, showers and cell blocks of the gaol, sip on beer, wine and drinks at the bar, feast on food (vegan and non-vegan options available), disco to the live DJ playing while the sun sets and capture it all for the gram’ with an interactive photo booth set up as a scene from the film. Then at 8pm, the main event – The Exorcist – which will be screened outdoors under the stars in a picnic-style showing on a grassy field inside Parramatta Gaol.

What to bring to this night of thrill? Apart from a nappy, think blankets, pillows and low lawn chairs, which you can set-up on arrival. There will be bar facilities onsite as well as food vendors, popcorn, soft drinks and snacks. Prefer to BYO? Then pack your own picnic with food and drink – just no glass or hard liquor are allowed.

Seating is on a first-come first-served basis. To fit everyone comfortably on the lawn, Haus of Horror recommends setting up “blanket-to-blanket” with your neighbours, leaving no empty space between parties. There are aisles on the lawn for easy access to restrooms and exits. Haus of Horror Ushers (in Haus of Horror T-Shirts) are on-site to assist with seating or with any questions. Street parking is also available. This event is for 18+ only.

Tickets are just $39 for General Admission or $59 to get a large, comfy bean bag on arrival. You can purchase tickets to “The Exorcist” inside Parramatta Gaol via Haus of Horror here.
