Students are getting excited for the Halloween frenzy as Escape from Wonderland comes to San Bernardino.
Insomniac is once again bringing Escape from Wonderland back from the dead on Oct. 26.
As the new quarter begins, students are dragging their feet to get to classes. Although the holiday seasons are just around the corner, students are trying their best to finish their homework and start working on their costumes, so they can escape to Wonderland.
Escape from Wonderland is a music festival or rave that plays predominately Electronic Dance Music (EDM) as well as various other types of music such as Dubstep, which in many ways is similar to EDM.
This year’s theme is raised from the dead, as Alice and her furry counterparts are dug up by the mastermind of the event, the Mad Hatter.
Insomniac has posted a pre-website for the event which includes all of the information as well as their famous cliffhanger video.
The video is a continuation of a collection of past videos of Escape Wonderland and other Wonderland inspired raves, and this time it shows that Alice has come back with a vengeance.
The tickets start at $96.55 and are on sale now on Live Nation and Ticket Master.
Along with ticket prices, the pre-website reveals some details about the haunted houses, rides and stages that will be represented at the event.
Community member Sergio Mendoza from Rancho Cucamonga says the reason he chooses to go to Wonderland for this holiday event is that everyone dresses up and has fun and the energy, at the event, is spread from person to person.
“The reason I like this event is because everyone likes to dress up and it’s a huge venue with music attractions and the energy around the whole thing is nothing short of positive,” said Mendoza enthusiastically.
Mendoza says that his favorite part of the event is, “socializing and meeting new friends, getting to see how everyone put so much time and effort into their costumes and outfits.”
As far as the music, Mendoza says that EDM is something that would allow you to have an excellent time.
But if you’re just getting into the music or if you like mainstream music then you’d still be able to have a good time with everything.
“I think for the most part it is for individuals who love EDM music, but really they play a lot of mainstream music as well, so even if you don’t like EDM you are guaranteed to have a good time on the rides or other attractions,” said Mendoza.
Insomniac wants to keep all of its customers safe by allowing customers to purchase spots on site so they are able to camp and have shuttles to the event so there is a safer way of transportation to all of the debauchery.
If you’re looking for something to do on Oct. 26 or need an excuse to dress up, Escape from Wonderland might just be the place for you!
