Halloween Horror Nights has a lengthy history of interactive fan experiences. Following in the footsteps of 2008 and 2010’s hugely-popular “Legendary Truth” game, comes HORROR UNEARTHED, an interactive mystery experience at Halloween Horror Nights 22.
Participants joined the game by registering and pledging allegiance to one of six primeval horror Lineages (see below). Players could then take to the HORROR UNEARTHED website to play online games and earn achievement badges and points (“Lifeforce”) for their faction. HORROR UNEARTHED also featured extensive in-park content. Players could earn points for their faction by scanning their Passcard, an RFID-enabled game card, at haunted house exits and other locations around the park.
With each passing week of HHN 22, the HORROR UNEARTHED website revealed new tasks for in-park players and challenging riddles for at-home players. The experience culminated in a final task that required cooperation between in-park and at-home players, followed by a wrap-up celebration held in the Pantages Theater.

“When the bedrock that trapped them was broken open some months ago, so too was one of the portals that revealed their grotesque existence, their insatiable wants and horrifying needs. And the mystery deepened.”
Throughout history, throughout the millennia and evident today, each of them made its mark. Ancient civilizations point to the horror of their presence through legend, folklore and tales that many had dismissed as superstition and myth. But it has become clear that their descendants walk among us even in modern times. Everyone alive today can trace their existence back to one of them. Loyalty runs deep.
