Delusion, Southern California’s premiere interactive haunted event, has announced their return to Pomona for 2022, and today, we have all the details! The newest incarnation of the immersive haunted play, titled “Delusion: Valley of Hollows,” will debut on September 15, with tickets going on sale Friday, August 12.
Thirteenth Floor and Director Jon Braver will once again bring his one-of-a-kind interactive horror theater series to life in the historic Phillips Estate with a new play titled Delusion: Valley of Hollows. Delving into an era never before explored in an interactive theater, the play will explore 1970’s American cults, with a supernatural twist.
“Nothing brings people together more than visceral, live experiences,” commented Braver. “Thirteenth Floor as a company sees beyond the simple jump scare. Delusion is far more than that. I have personally seen lives changed after a harrowing journey through our living, breathing otherworlds. We need this now more than ever.”
Though Valley of Hollows is a stand alone sequel to 2021’s Reaper’s Remorse, Braver has made sure that returning Delusionals (as he calls them) need not have attended last year’s play. “These plays inspire that campfire effect,” adds Braver. “You live in our stories, then you tell your own. There is something for everyone here.”
Delusionals will play the role of Deprogrammers; those meant to help rescue people from the influence of cults. During the 1970’s there was an influx of cults popping around the United States such as Children of God and The Manson Family. Since the disappearance of Esther Phillips over twenty years ago, a cult known as The Hollows was born. Fanatics from around the world have come to her estate, driven by rumors of a gift beyond this life, if only they would die on her grounds. Playing upon this phenomenon, Delusion will swallow its guests into its most disturbing interactive play to date where they will uncover the truth behind The Hollows.
Now, we don’t want you to panic, but this event typically sells out QUICKLY. If you want to see this show (and believe us, you DO), we highly suggest you don’t wait to buy tickets. Just buy your Delusion tickets first and then schedule the rest of your fall and haunt activities around this event.
Delusion is one of the best-reviewed fall attractions in California, if not nationwide. Their production never disappoints, and each year typically brings new and amazing effects and storylines to immediately suck you into its twisted world. And to that point, Delusion isn’t produced every year…so the fact that we are getting a Delusion event two years in a row is a cause for celebration in itself!
To buy tickets, visit EnterDelusion.com to sign up for early access. General admission tickets start at $89.99, and VIP tickets start at $124.99. It’s worth noting that VIP is more than just “front of the line” access…you get a considerable amount of extra content and interaction before the show. We purchased VIP tickets last year, and it was definitely worth it!
