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

To hype the upcoming Insidious: Chapter 3 horror film, Focus Features is bringing the Into the Further 4D Experience to Philadelphia this weekend. You can go for free!

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.

The Oculus Rift VR helmets have gotten rave reviews for nearly every iteration, and this is a chance to finally try out the hyped technology for yourself.

To enter, email Josh Middleton at ( with the subject line “I Want to Try Oculus Rift!”. The first 25 people will win two passes to the event this weekend. Participants go one at a time, but you and a friend can book your times back-to-back.
