Storyline: The most horrendous prison, Perpetuum Penitentiary, now metes out justice via revolutionary Vixi-technology which is used by vile and sadistic engineers to treat the evils of humanity. They've hit new levels of depravity. You must pass through this earthly hell where prisoners in the cell blocks have no concept of confinement and are thirsty for the sweet-smelling blood of new victims.

The most intense haunted house in Orange County is an approx. 35 minute journey in groups of 6-8 people (ages 16+) through darkened corridors and spaces designed for all five senses. You may be exposed to or come in contact with: claustrophobia, electrical shocks, moving floors, water, foul scents, strobe lighting, projectiles, fog, total darkness, dizziness, suffocation, water inhalation, disorientation and loud noises. You will get WET! You may need to hold your breath. Dress accordingly. Many props are replicas and many are real! This will be outlined in the waiver that you will be required to sign.

When fear and panic sets in cry "MERCY" to be taken out of the experience. In all but 3 rooms you may be escorted out when you can't handle the intense drama and request escape.

Some vulgar language and sexual innuendo along with thematic material may be presented in several intense situations, according to The 17th Door. Guests won't be forced to eat or do anything they do not want to do. The Haunt will be scary and intense but is also designed to be fun.
