Part of my Halloween Horror Nights 24 (HHN) adventures was taking the Unmasking the Horror Tour. This tour takes fans on a behind the scenes look at their haunted houses. Our tour took us into 6 of their 8 houses so I decided to break them each up into their own post in order to give you a better look at each of them. This is a behind the scenes look at the “Roanoke - Cannibal Colony” house.
The above video is a series of photos that I took while on the tour. What I will be doing now is describing some of the things you saw in the video, so you might want to read this and then go back and watch the video again.
Several of the first pics are of the entrance to this cannibal colony. In the video you see a pic of a guy on the right hand side. He's in a lot of pain, and makes all kinds of noise at night. The two guys in this pic are as dead as they look, but at night there is someone hiding behind them to scare you.
There isn't much to explain about this house. It's based on the lost colony of Roanoke. HHN decided to make their own version of the story about cannibals. Therefore in the video you will notice this is a bloody house full of body parts. These cannibals were eating good as you can see!
I included the above pic simply because it reminds me of Daryl. Looks like he would be facing cannibals in both worlds.
How did the cannibals cook their food? On a barbecue pit of course! You will find a few of them in this house. At night, there's a scare actor laying in this one acting like he's being cooked.
Here's a nice pile of bones. In the video, you might notice there's a pic of a seat behind it. At night, there's a scare actor there to welcome you as you pass by. The cannibal scare actors were funny because many of them would say, "meat" as you passed by. I'm glad they didn't cook us!
I wouldn’t want to end up like this guy!
Part of what's going on here besides the cooking is the colony burning down. Standing around this area at night are several scare actors that are still alive, and trying to escape the fire. Apparently they decided to burn everything down, as opposed to being eaten!
The final room of the house featured two scare actors on stilts coming out of the corners of the room to scare you. They were pretty intimidating especially if you are paying attention to things like this table of brains.
Overall not the scariest house, but certainly one of the bloodiest. It was awesome seeing all of the carnage the cannibals had created with their meals. I hope you watched the video to see all of that carnage! The scare actors were fun to listen too. This actually ended up being a good year for all of their original houses. So that was a look at the "Roanoke – Cannibal Colony” house. If you have any questions about the house, or HHN24, please feel free to ask.
