ROAD TRIP MYSTERIES: AN IMMERSIVE ADVENTURE FROM THE COMFORT OF YOUR OWN CAR!
ROAD TRIP ENTHUSIASTS ARE INVITED TO TAKE PART IN THE TESTING PHASE FOR AN EXCITING NEW EXPERIENCE
For all of us that love interactive horror experiences, themed entertainment and literally everything else in-between; quarantine has been really difficult. We don’t have our avenues for escapism at hand like we normally do. Whether that be an escape room, haunt, theme park or interactive theater; those things just aren’t feasible or safe at the moment. Thankfully, our friends over at Hollow Studios has created a new immersive, location based storytelling experience. Being able to have fun while staying safe is always important and this sounds like the perfect way to scratch that itch you’ve been having for the past few months. Below, you’ll find all the info about this exciting new experience from Hollow Studios.
HOLLOW STUDIOS, an immersive multi-media production company, announces the launch of a brief testing period for Road Trip Mysteries, an experiential location-based version of storytelling. With a large portion of the public spending much of their time at home over the past couple of months, Hollow Studios presents a thrilling adventure allowing people to explore the open road in the socially distanced safety of their very own automobile.
Road Trip Mysteries is more than solving clues within the beautiful backdrop of historically relevant locations. Throughout the approximate 45-minute journey, people will be guided by a fictitious narrative that leads to “secrets”, “despair”, and “mystery”. Driving in their cars, people will travel from one scenic location to the next and at each stop, more of the puzzling story is unveiled through downloaded audio. Along the way, helpful clues can be gathered from the real-life natural settings to provide more information about the bizarre mystery.
Road Trip Mysteries: Episode One: The Mystery of Simi Knolls. Strange unsolved murders are taking place about thirty miles north of Los Angeles along the scenic Santa Susana Pass Road in Simi Valley, California. Following a dark trail of coverups and mysteries, the historic trails lead to shocking crimes. Will the clues found along the way help uncover the terrifying truth behind the horrific murders? It is up to you to find out!
The Mystery of Simi Knolls testing phase will be available for FREE during a limited time from June 28, 2020 through July 5, 2020.
With most media production companies currently at a standstill due to Covid-19, Hollow Studios began to explore ways to entertain while maintaining safe and healthy guidelines. Hollow Studios founder and Chief Creative Executive, David Love says, “We are presenting this test phase for free to encourage as many people as possible to get out on the road, take part in our story and enjoy themselves.” The future Road Trip Mysteries will require a fee as well as downloading an official app.
The experience was created by seasonal themed entertainment director and writer, Ted Dougherty, who was looking for ways to create a positive and safe experience amidst the pandemic. In response to conceptualizing the adventure, Dougherty says, “So much of themed entertainment revolves around escapism. I wanted to offer something where people could safely leave the house, provide a brief escape for them and have some fun.”
Road Trip Mysteries takes place at the pace of each individual participant. There is no time requirement for the experience to take place – it can begin and end at the will of the participants. However, some of the locations are regional parks that have operating hours and so local rules, laws and times are to be followed. Because driving is necessary to take part in the experience, participants will be required to sign a general liability waiver.
All drivers and their passengers are encouraged to follow Road Trip Mysteries on social media and sign-up for the free test phase beginning June 28, 2020. All participants will be asked to complete a survey about their experience at the conclusion of their adventure.
Road Trip Mysteries, where the exhilaration of traveling the open road meets mystique and suspense. Get ready to pack up the car, put your thinking caps on and gear up for a wild ride!
