Pro tips:

  • Patrons will be walking and standing for the duration of Unhinged in The Haunted Basement. Please wear comfortable tennis shoes.
  • Each patron is required to wear a light-weight plastic mask for the duration of Unhinged in The Haunted Basement. We strongly suggest patrons wear contact lenses instead of glasses.
  • Patrons are encouraged to arrive 20 minutes prior to their ticket time to check in, enjoy a drink in the Exile Lounge and steady their nerves.

    • No admittance if you are under 18. IDs will be checked at the door.
    • No admittance to intoxicated individuals, or individuals seemingly under the influence of illegal substances.
    • Patrons may not cause damage or harm to any sets, props, costumes or performers. Aggressive or careless behavior will result in immediate ejection.
    • For your own safety and comfort, you must have appropriate clothing to navigate through challenging and messy environments: no high heels or flip-flops. Inappropriate clothing may result in denial of entry.
    • All bags, coats, backpacks and large items will be checked at the door.
    • Patrons agree to the use of documentation including photography, audio and video recording and authorize the release of any documentation for publication.

This includes any photography, audio, or video recording for publication.
    • No cell phones, cameras, flashlights or other illumination devices may be used during the performance. Any use of these devices during the performance will result in immediate ejection.
    • Each patron must present a valid ticket at the door, valid only for the show time and date on their ticket. No late entry. No re-entry. No ticket rescheduling. No refunds.
    • The Soap Factory determines patron compliance and reserves the right to refuse admission or eject any patron at our discretion as well as the right to insist a patron leave the premises.
