Chimelong Paradise, Haunted House - 2017

The Drain

As Haunted House Experts, Leisure Expert Group was contracted by the China based Chimelong Group to design and build a Haunted House in their Guangzhou park: Chimelong Paradise.

Together with the very dedicated and professional team of Chimelong Paradise, we created a concept based on very instinctive fears such as: fear of the dark and claustrophobia. This collaboration resulted in the creation of Haunted House “The Drain”, which opened as the first Halloween project outside of Europe for Leisure Expert Group.

JOHNNY RUISCH

DESIGN EXPERT

“We have designed ‘The Drain’, based on natural fears of people. There is always something mysterious about an underground sewer system.

Basic human instinct tells you you should not go down the drainage systems. Humans are naturally afraid of the dark and the unknown and this is exactly what they will find when they “descend” into our ‘The Drain’ haunted house.”

TECHNICAL EXPERT

“As this was our first project in mainland China, we tried to prepare ourselves as much as possible before production started. And while it was a very challenging process, seeing the house become a reality was really rewarding.

By doing both design and production on this house, we were able to make sure the technical installation and show-control was utilized in the most effective way.

The result is a multi-sensory experience where smell, sound, touch and light effects are used to scare the visitors in the most effective way possible.”

THE FINAL RESULT

You can find our first ever haunted house in China in Chimelong Paradise in Guangzhou during their Halloween season.
