Watch HONOLULU Staffers Experience a New Haunted House by Jorge Garcia

We got a sneak peek of Skeleton Key presents Mummy: Curse of the Crypt Haunted House by Jorge Garcia.


Published:

 

It’s almost like a scene from an Indiana Jones movie. You enter a newly discovered ancient Egyptian tomb. Death is promised to intruders who dare to enter. Your mission is to make it out alive, so you can you escape the mummy’s curse.

 

Welcome to Kailua’s new haunted house Mummy: The Curse of the Crypt by Jorge Garcia. Yes, that Jorge Garcia from Lost and Hawai‘i Five-O. Garcia, a Halloween buff, designed the set and created the props during his spare time from acting.

 

“I’ve always haunted my yards for trick-or-treaters,” Garcia says. “I was interested in doing something like this, so I just jumped at the chance.”

 

We sent two of our brave staffers to test run Kailua’s newest haunted attraction designed by Garcia and produced by Skeleton Key Hawai‘i’s Kevin Keaveney.

 

Despite the traumatizing (and hilarious) experience from last year’s Nightmares Live walkthrough (watch the video), senior fashion editor Stacey Makiya and events manager Jeff Alencastre volunteered (well, kind of) to let our camera crew tag along while they walked through the haunted house. Sorry, Stacey and Jeff, we enjoy torturing you every Halloween. We even got Garcia to tag along for an adventure.

 

Expect about 28 costumed actors working the attraction, so watch out for surprises!  If you’re planning to visit, go with a small group. You may start to feel claustrophobic in the close quarters. We finished our private walkthrough in six minutes but our team ran through a lot of the maze, which you couldn’t do in a crowd. Watch the video above to scream (or laugh) with us. 

 

Look out for a horror-themed escape room and a new haunted attraction next year.  “We’ll have a completely new theme next year,” Keaveney says.

 

Proceeds from the attraction will go to the nonprofit Kailua Onstage Arts Theater he founded nearby. 

 

​7–11 p.m. on Oct. 6–7, 13–14, 19–21, 26–31 and keiki-friendly days from 5–7 p.m. on Oct. 21, 28–29, $15 general admission, $20 fast pass, 171 A-Hamakua Drive, skeletonkeyhawaii.com
