How long will the experience take?
We've designed Nightmare Machine to be a 45 minute spooky adventure.
Is Nightmare Machine a haunted house?
We like to think of Nightmare Machine as new blend between haunted houses and social media pop ups! We took the best of haunted houses and made them more photo friendly. Think less being chased around by men with chainsaws, and more creepy photo moments (with a few scares thrown in, of course!
Is Nightmare Machine children friendly?
We rate Nightmare Machine PG-13. But, ultimately, we trust parents to make the best decisions for their children based on their maturity levels and scare factors. Although nothing is **too** scary, we play with flickering lights and dead bodies. We’ll leave the final decision up to you!
Are there any lights used in the experience that an trigger an epileptic reaction?
Strobes and flashing lights will be used in this experience. Those prone to epileptic seizures should use caution when entering Nightmare Machine.
Are costumes allowed?
We highly encourage costumes! However, no masks or fake weapons of any kind of permitted inside Nightmare Machine.
Where is Nightmare Machine located?
We are located at 93 N. 9th Street in Brooklyn, NY. Bedford Avenue L station is located only 4 blocks away!
How much are tickets?
General admission is $31. Tickets are ONLY available online.
Do you refund tickets or change the designated time slot?
All ticket sales are final and non-refundable. We cannot transfer tickets for any reason as we only have a limited amount of people per time slot. We apologize but no exceptions can be made!
What should I bring?
Bring your ticket, ID, and a fully charged phone/camera. Strollers and large bags are not permitted inside the experience but we have an area to store them while you explore!
What time do I need to arrive for my timed ticket?
You must arrive within the first 20 minutes of the half hour slot you purchased (eg. Arrive before 11:50 a.m. for an 11:30-12 p.m. ticket.) Your ticket is only valid for the date and time purchased. If you miss your time slot, your ticket is unfortunately no longer valid.
Is Nightmare Machine wheelchair accessible?
Are there bathrooms?
Yes. And we support whichever gender you identify with!
Can my child come without me?
Unfortunately, minors under the age of 18 will need adult supervision at all times.
When will Dream Machine reopen?
After Nightmare Machine ends on October 31st, we will be taking Dream Machine to new cities in 2018! Please follow us on Instagram @inthedreammachine for all updates and announcements!
