The Shenandoah Center for Immersive Learning (SCiL) presents its first-ever haunted mansion and maze on Halloween.
“Frankenstein’s Mansion: An Immersive Experience” is from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 31, at the Health & Life Sciences Building (HLSB) on Shenandoah’s main campus in Winchester. The event, which is open to the public, is intended for anyone 13 years of age and older.
- $5 for students with an ID
- $10 for adults
The experience, in the large SCiL lab in the HLSB’s basement level, features a glowing physical maze through Frankenstein’s haunted mansion and laboratory filled with ghostly visions and macabre characters—portrayed by Shenandoah students and professional role players. To escape the mansion and Frankenstein’s monster, participants can don a VR headset to take a virtual ride shuttling them through the surrounding city and countryside.
Shenandoah University students created the project.
We’re inviting visitors to play inside of this world. This is not intended to be an intense scare, but a fun, immersive opportunity to see what our students are building.”
