“Amenti” is the Egyptian Goddess guarding the world of the dead. Within her gates lie the horrors of the Egyptian underworld. Terror after terror await those who dare to enter. But be careful, Amenti jealously guards her gates and assures that no one escapes.
2013 marks the eighth year that the Egyptian Theatre will create the mother of all Haunted Attractions; Amenti. This year once again includes over 20 different scenes on 6 different levels going throughout the entire Egyptian Theatre. There also is plenty of new surprises this year throughout the haunted house.
General Admission tickets are $13.00. If you don’t want to wait in line you can purchase Priority Pass tickets online in advance for $20.00. A priority pass gets you to the front of the line and allows you to skip the frequent hour or longer wait.
Due to the intense nature of this haunted attraction, it is not recommended for individuals under the age of 13. However the Egyptian Theatre does participate in Spooktacular, the family friendly trick-or-treating event that takes place throughout Downtown DeKalb on Saturday, October 26 from 1-3pm. A small portion of the theatre is open during this free event with all the scares removed so that kids can enjoy this annual haunted attraction as well.
Amenti will run from Friday, October 18 – Sunday, October 20th, October 25th thru 27th and October 31st thru November 2nd, starting at 7pm each night. End times vary depending on the night so visit www.amenti.info for more info or to purchase tickets.
Over 100 volunteers typically put in over 2,500 hours of service each October to make this event the success it has become. This event has become the largest annual fundraiser for the Egyptian Theatre. The proceeds benefit the theatre as they go towards the ongoing operations and maintenance of the historic landmark.
The Egyptian Theatre is operated by P.E.T. (Preservation of the Egyptian Theatre, Inc.) a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, since 1978. The historic Egyptian Theatre is located at 135 N. 2nd Street in Downtown DeKalb.
