This is not a haunted house. So then, what is it? Please read on.

USA Today's 10best website has just delivered "The Ten Frighteningly Awesome Horror Events You Need to Know About." These 10 selected horror events were chosen from across the U.S.A, and Cold Spring, NY in the Hudson Valley is on that lurid list. This 30-minute horrorgasm is a take-off on the New York City show This is Realbut the show in Cold Springs is more intimate and will scare the livin' bejesus out of you. The following is a promotional video for This Is Real, but be advised, it's NOT for the Cold Springs experience:

As I mentioned, what it's not is a haunted house. The Cold Springs experience could be called a tryout for a new New York City Halloween attraction in 2019. Cold Springs is an intimate horror experience that lasts for 30 minutes.

This is what will happen: You will be blindfolded the entire time. Your other senses will be challenged, including taste, and you will be given some intense attention for the entire half-hour of the experience. Every single date from October 14 through November 4 is already completely sold out.
