A teaser website went live on June 4. The website has a rock concert theme. On July 28, The "HOS" insider Twitter account released pictures of a torture chamber themed back stage teaser shots, one of the captions were "Revenge is "ELECTRIFRYING"". On July 29, The website had another big update. On August 19 the entire website was up with all the info for the event.

Two of the haunted houses for this year, Revenge Rocks and Alone, are brand new, while the remaining six houses are sequels to the prior years renditions.


  • MyX: Revenge Rocks (Gwazi Event Yard) - This haunted house follows the back-story of the event icon Sylvie and her MyX Band.
  • Alone (Bird Gardens Pavilion) - Alexander Daedalus uses Minotaur Storage to house his vast collection of items. But now, Daedalus obsession has led to stockpiling people. This haunted house is at an added cost and gives the buyer the option to experience it by themselves or with no more than three other group members. If a guest walks through the house alone and without the aid of any kind, they will receive a free T-shirt. At any time they can chicken out by saying the safe-word: "Goldfish." Many chose to do so. No refunds for cowards.

  • Taste of Blood: A Different Vein (Ubanga Banga Bumper Cars) - The exit and entrance switch sides this year, but the flow of the house remains the same. Vlad reclaims his position in the house.
  • Death Row Vengeance: No Escape (Nairobi Pavilion) - The inmates at Grey Echo Penitentiary vowed before their executions that they would one day return to take revenge on those who would not bother to save them. Now, the evil inmates have returned to make good on their dying promise.
