Not at all. Terror Roulette is an interactive, theatrical horror experience where guests are challenged to face their fears in fun & innovative ways. Safety is our #1 priority and while you may think you are about to die, it’s all an illusion. As Eddie Sotto famously said, “Fear minus Death = Fun”
Terror Roulette is a fully immersive attraction. Visitors may be touched, guided, held back, set on a different path, or even removed from their group. Guests may not touch our society of slayers or any staff working within Terror Roulette. Any guests that cause a disruption, refuse to follow directions, or touch/assault our actors, will be escorted out of the attraction.
All guests have the opportunity to become a “Voyeur” when purchasing a ticket. This add-on signals to the actors you prefer to be a spectator rather than participant. The actors will respect your wishes.
The Arboretum of South Barrington has many eateries throughout the shopping center. While there will be no food or drink offered within Terror Roulette, guests are highly encouraged to arrive early or stay late to enjoy the multitude of options The Arboretum has to offer.
Yes, reservations are required for each visit. Guests with an Unlimited Masochist Season Pass: Select the date/time you would like to visit again and enter your email address in the promo code field. This will lower the ticket price to zero.
Late arrivals are not guaranteed an alternative time as it is subject to availability. We highly recommend guests arrive early and enjoy the many eateries available at The Arboretum prior to their reservation time. If a guest is late, the Terror Roulette team will do their best to move them to another time on the same night or rebook for a different evening.
