In the early summer, Richard Magazine spotlighted an immersive pop-up exhibit called the Dream Machine in Brooklyn, where visitors were able to walk through beautifully curated rooms invoking the fantasy landscape of their dreams. Now that Halloween is quickly approaching, the event organizers have now debuted the Nightmare Machine, where those social media photo-perfect rooms turn ghastly!
“Presented by the team that brought you Dream Machine, Nightmare Machine is the culmination of your greatest phobias and freakouts designed to be tactile and shareable,” event organizers shared on their website. “We invite you to face your fears as you explore our Halloween-inspired playground and become fully immersed in a totally spooky, but still PG-13, experience.”
Though this experience is distinctly not a haunted house, it’s inspired by their vibes. The organizers rate the experience as suitable for ages 12+. Minors under age 18 require an adult supervisor. You can wear costumes to the exhibit, but no masks or fake weapons can be a part of them.
The space is in the same location as the Dream Machine, (93 N. 9th Street, Brooklyn) and is sure to spook you out. To add to the eeriness, the Nightmare Machine will only be open in the evenings, from 5 PM to 10 PM from Wednesday to Sunday. No tickets will be available at the door, so make sure to reserve your space and buy your tickets online now.
