The Vault of Souls 2016, a theatrical fear experience in downtown Tampa, reopens on September 30 with more performers compared to last year’s Halloween event.
The Vault of Souls 2016 features a diverse range of performance art, from elegant dancing in the restored 1920s bank building, to disturbing characters in the hundred-year old basement, to an aerialist on the third floor and singer in the Gin Joint. In their second year of operations, The Vault of Souls has increased their performance staff by fifteen percent, brings creative jobs to Downtown Tampa, and allowing for the guest experience to be more personal and interactive.
“This year we are deepening our story by including more characters that can interact with our guests,” said Scott Swenson, Creative Director for The Vault of Souls. “Some of these spirits have been spotted in Downtown Tampa already as a moving art installation. We call these targeted apparitions.”
During the event, guests will receive one-on-one attention from spirits on three levels of The Franklin Exchange high-rise in downtown Tampa. Guests who enter The Vault of Souls should be prepared to explore nearly 11,000 square feet of hidden fear, all while wearing a white face mask to protect their identity from spirits with harmful intentions.
If guests are able to find their own way out of the historically haunted basement, they enter a 1920s themed speakeasy bar and are encouraged to party with other survivors and relive their paranormal experience.
Space is limited and reservations are available for adults 18 and older at ElegantFear.com. The event runs every Friday and Saturday in October, starting September 30th. The event is located at The Vault, 611 N Franklin Street, Tampa, Florida 33602.
