The Gravesend Inn, a high-tech haunted hotel, will be thrilling guests for the (lucky?) 13th year October 18-31 in New York City College of Technology’s Voorhees Theatre, 186 Jay Street (north of Tillary), Downtown Brooklyn. Tickets are $6 general admission, $5 for students with ID and group sales. Not advisable for pre-school age children.
Guaranteed to make your hair stand up if you have hair or send shivers up your spine if you don’t, The Gravesend Inn is produced by Theatreworks, City Tech's resident theatrical troupe. Design, construction and operating support is provided by students and faculty of the College’s nationally recognized Department of Entertainment Technology. This theme-park-quality Halloween attraction has been thrilling children and adults alike since 2000.
New this year is something shocking coming out of an oven. Also featured are an electronic pirate, bloody bathroom, graveyard, upside-down room, animated sitting room and a living portrait.
Actors convincingly act out the parts of Gravesend Inn’s macabre employees, skeletons, gypsies, pirates, ghosts and their chill-inducing kindred. Beware Tina Terminal, the ghost who is forever searching for her groom Gunter. Tina and Gunter died on their wedding day in their gown and tux. Their bodies are stored at the hotel, but not together. Tina is a live character in the haunted hotel and will greet guests in the conservatory.
