Yes, it’s true! We’re making a STEAMPUNK HAUNTED HOUSE!

The Kickstarter goes live on Monday, 8/21/2017; PLEASE DO RSVP for the Facebook event to keep up with the latest info.  Fittingly, it will happen in the darkness of the coming eclipse!

We’re so excited that we’ll say it again…

We’re Making A Steampunk Haunted House!

To view the kickstarter please go here!

 There’s a lot of research and discussion below, so if you want the short version, here it is:

The world’s largest Steampunk event, the world’s largest dark/alternative social media site, and an incredible, family-owned, hand-built resort in the Catskills are teaming up to create a Steampunk Haunted House which will be available both to those who travel there, and internationally (through special backer-only shows and live walkthroughs!)  That Steampunk Haunted House is actually already 99% completed.  We want your help to push it over the top!

First 50 backers will be entered into a contest for having a drink with Jeff Mach and members of the Blackthorne and Haunt team!


St Patrick’s Day Weekend – for 3 days we take over the Radisson Hotel in Piscataway, NJ and provide you with an escape to socialize, make new friends and create new experiences.

To show our support for independent businesses and alternative culture, we will have a wide variety of unique and unusual vendors, catering to all your dark needs.

For your entertainment pleasure we bring you a host of events, entertainers, panels and activities.

Sponsored by VampireFreaks and Jeff Mach Events, both companies have an impressive history of hosting events and bringing people together in the dark alternative scenes.

LIMITED NYC Charter Bus Seats NOW AVAILABLE! Sorry you can’t take the subway, but you can ride in style because we’ve got a motherfucking charter bus just for you! Buy your round trip bus ticket online & meet up with our friends at Gothic Renaissance at 3pm on Friday, February 17th.
