Welcome to Delusion

an experience one will not soon forget

Reviews

"The show is beautiful: well-crafted, well-acted, well-directed...   of all the Halloween shows in Los Angeles,   Delusion is the crown jewel."

"Delusion has created a genre in interactive horror theater that no one has come close to beating. The attention to detail, production value, and level of absolute excellence they have achieved is unmatched."

"...truly a play that no person should miss. It is this brief moment where you get to escape the mundane and explore a world of monsters...  it was unlike anything else I’ve ever experienced."

"Hottest ticket in town. Delusion’s story is gothic and twisted …its scares driven by psychology."

"...one could go to Delusion multiple times and not have the same experience twice...  Braver & Co. have become the undisputed kings of the haunted attraction."

"It might be the scariest play you’ve ever seen, because you are in it. It’s a psychological thriller that tests your courage. It is sure to keep you up at night."

"Delusion is one of the most thrilling and innovative experiences I participated in this Halloween season. And I’m kicking myself for waiting so long to see it."

"From the exceptional score and the expertly done FX (including wirework and other stunts), to the immensely talented cast and exciting concept, this event is truly unique and should be a no-brainer for anyone looking for the single best horror event in Los Angeles."

The Experience

What began as Jon Braver's passion project has evolved into the most celebrated interactive theatre experience to date. And now with Delusion's partnership with Skybound Entertainment, the Delusion stories will expand into all mediums including VR, Comics, Film, Television and Radio Dramas. For the live theatre experience, imagine how it would feel to be a character in a real-life horror and suspense film. Touted as "the vanguard of interactive theatre" and " the future of live entertainment" this moving play immerses you in a living, breathing world as you play your part in a psychologically disturbing tale of horror, suspense, mystery and adventure.

First premiered in 2011, Delusion has re-defined live theatre by creating psychologically disturbing, interactive experiences that incorporate the audience into the story as characters. There is nothing quite like Delusion. Using an innovative blend of suspenseful storytelling, a chilling original score, creature FX, and professional actors and stuntmen, Delusion creates a truly one of a kind word-class immersive experience. You will interact with actors, perform actions, retrieve objects, solve mysteries, choose paths and perhaps sacrifice yourself to move the story forward. As always, you are invited to become a key player in Delusion's next twisted tale! How far will you go to fully realize your journey into the darkness and beyond?

F.A.Q.

Is this a Haunted House or Escape Room?
Let a Delusion fan explain: "If you're looking for jump scares, you're going to be disappointed. If you're looking for a fully engaging interactive horror experience that takes you through a roller coaster of a story, then this is the play you need to see." Well said Delusional! Think of this as a moving play. Enter our world and become a character in the haunting tale. This is interactive theatre. An eerie story told in the way only Delusion can. Many guests return multiple times to fully engage with the story, action and characters since there are branching narratives. There is much depth to this experience if you're willing to simply let go.
How scary is Delusion?
The play is more of an adventure in the vein of Indiana Jones but how scary it is depends on how far you let yourself go. To fully realize the world of Delusion, your mind must release you from the constraints of rational thought. Allow yourself to enter a world of adventure and mystery... leaving your former life behind. Creator Jon Braver always says he's not out to scare the hell out of people. He simply wants to tell/show an eerie, compelling story in a unique way. Delusion is beautiful, horrifying, suspenseful and adventurous. But in the end, it's all great fun! After the show, people held each other, laughed and were dying to go again!
Any warnings/emotional triggers I should know about?
YES! READ BEFORE PURCHASING! PHYSICALLY DEMANDING EXPERIENCE! Due to the nature of the play and its location, we do NOT recommend the play for anyone with existing injuries, heart conditions, pregnant women, epileptics, claustrophobics, or the faint of heart. While it is difficult to know how any one story point, effect or even music cue might effect one or another, we can tell you that the play has the following effects and activities: light physical touch, fog, strobe lights, tight spaces, climbing stairs and stones, sliding, stunts, sound of gunfire and prop guns, loud music and sound effects, Nazi paraphernalia and old video stock, and creepy imagery. Please be aware there are NO REFUNDS whatsoever. If you have any questions or concerns please email info@enterdelusion.com BEFORE purchasing a ticket.
How long is the play? How many people per group? What's the format?
The play is a little over an hour (time varies a bit due to the interactivity). We are also dropping our group size to 8 people max. Much more intimacy but far fewer tickets available per night! A new group begins the play every 20 minutes. But come early to enjoy the Delusion lounge and prepare for your adventure.
