About this project
DR. RADLEY'S NIGHTMARE MACHINE
presented by Outside the Magic
This year, the Radley Haunted House in St. Peterburg, Florida presents a horrifying new story dreamt up by more creative minds than ever before.
Dr. Radley's Nightmare Machine will be a new walkthrough haunted house open for 15 nights in October 2014, putting visitors face-to-face with the horrors of the dream world. Featuring elaborate sets, hand made props, original characters, and stunning special effects, this year's Radley Haunted House will bring to life a series of terrifying encounters wrapped in creator Cody Meacham's famous "beautiful horror" aesthetic.
BIGGER, BETTER, MORE FRIGHTENING
This year Meacham and his small, but talented team have joined forces with theme park expert Ricky Brigante of InsideTheMagic.net and the new OutsideTheMagic.com to create an even bigger and better haunted attraction than ever before. Combining Brigante's themed entertainment experience with Meacham's raw artistic talent, the Radley Haunted House will be bigger and more intense than ever before.
But we can't do it alone. We need your help to fund this expansion project, taking this home haunt to new heights. And we will happily reward you with plenty of terror-ific swag and one-of-a-kind experiences for your contributions.
All donations are greatly appreciated, with each little bit helping us fund the creation of the new Radley Haunted House for 2014, allowing us to purchase plywood, dry wall, paint, props, decorations, costumes, makeup, special effects, and much more. For your donations, you will receive our gracious thanks as well as a little something extra (or possibly a BIG something extra).
The most desirable reward is admission to a special personal horror experience called Dr. Radley's Sleep Sessions, directed by Ricky Brigante. This will be a completely separate experience from the normal nightly show, roughly 30 minutes in length, designed for horror fans looking for the most unique and extreme Halloween experience in Central Florida. Availability for this experience is extremely limited.
Other rewards include pieces of Radley artwork, T-shirts, lanyards, and of course admission to the event including the ability to skip the long line that inevitably forms each evening. Read through the full list to the right before making your choice, so you don't miss out on something incredible.
For several years, the Radley Haunted House has stood out among the finest independent haunted attractions in Central Florida. Often compared to the quality of Universal Orlando's Halloween Horror Nights and Busch Gardens Tampa's Howl-O-Scream, Radley never fails to impress with its immersive environments, eerie ambiance, and startling scares.
But this is no professional haunt. The Radley Haunted House is the creation of artist Cody Meacham, who completely reinvents the experience each year, carrying the storyline of the Radley family across each Halloween season, revealing new details over time all while entertaining hundreds of guests each night.
ABOUT OUTSIDE THE MAGIC
OutsideTheMagic.com is Ricky Brigante's newest venture, a spin-off of the popular InsideTheMagic.net web site. Where Inside the Magic covers theme park happenings and special events with a family-friendly focus, Outside the Magic broadens the scope of coverage to include more adult-oriented themed entertainment - especially including Halloween / haunted attractions.
Risks and challenges
The Radley Haunted House is already being designed. Props and decorations are being created. Once fully funded via this Kickstarter project, we'll move forward into the full construction phase, creating multiple rooms of horror-filled experiences. We'll be posting updates on Twitter, Facebook, and the Radley web site to keep backers updated on the progress.
But we aren't relying 100% on Kickstarter. Radley Haunted House will exist whether this project gets funded or not. However, these funds are needed to make the haunted house better than ever, with more exciting elements throughout. Everyone who backs this project will get to experience the Radley haunted house, whether in person or via professionally shot video online.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
