Family Entertainment Center pioneer World of Fun brings back the immersive theatrical horror experience Bahay Trese at Building 3 of Sta. Lucia Mall inside World of Fun starting Friday, October 14.
The popular attraction features a haunted house believed to be the home of restless spirits from the Japanese occupation. The house is inspired by a series of massacres that happened in Manila in 1945, when homes were torched, women were raped and murdered, and men were killed. Bloodshed was everywhere.
The tour of Bahay Trese is an immersive theatrical horror attraction. Guests lose themselves in the moment as they stand right in the center of action: a spooky altar room, a mad man’s laboratory and a little girl’s bedroom – all dark and cryptic.
Guests are within breathing distance of the characters, like a lost little girl, an angry father, and a mysterious caretaker.
The distinction between reality and fiction is blurred as guests roam Bahay Trese and surrounded by scary symbols of death.
Majority of the actors are trained and / or attended workshops conducted by a well known leading theater organization. Others are members of theater guilds from prestigious schools. They’re trained to be sensitive to audience reaction and improvise if the situation calls for it.
More than just another horror house, Bahay Trese has strong elements of improvisation, storytelling and problem solving.
Bahay Trese is open Thursdays to Sundays at 3 to 9 p.m.
Sta. Lucia Mall is located along Marcos Highway, Cainta, Rizal.
Special events are also lined up at Sta. Lucia Mall every Saturday from Oct. 8 to Nov. 5 to kick off Bahay Trese's opening season.
