Win a Chance to Try Out Oculus Rift in Unique Haunted House This Weekend

The film Insidious: Chapter 3 comes out on June 6th, the third installment of the Insidious horror film series. (It’s actually a prequel to the first two movies.)

And there’s a pretty neat promotion for it called the Into the Further 4D Experience. Featuring much-praised Oculus Rift VR technology — now owned by Facebook — the event features actress Lin Shaye (playing Elise Ranier) guiding visitors through a haunted-house type experience. It’s a unique ride that’s certain to scare the heck out of you.

Into the Further 4D will be at the South Street Spring Festival at Headhouse Square from 11am to 8pm on Saturday and 12pm to 6pm on Sunday. Ticket is offering 25 lucky winners two passes each to go see it. Read more »
