FACED WITH UNEXPECTED DELAYS, NIGHTMARES AT THE MAJESTIC WILL NOT OPEN THIS SEASON
Due to unforeseen circumstances beyond anyone’s control, the regrettable announcement that Nightmares at the Majestic will not open this year is being made by Nightmares By AEO.
“The pulling off a miracle in the Haunt industry by creating, building, and staffing a Haunt in 90 days, was a challenge we were up to. However, permitting and inspection issues were the proverbial stake to the heart of this project,” said, Drew Dalire, Operations Manager, Nightmares By AEO.
Creative Director Alan Ostrander, echoed the sentiment, “The Nightmare we would have presented to Orlando would have not been the one of which we collectively would be proud. It would be better if we delayed our opening the haunt so we can present the Nightmare that we all deserve to experience.”
Nightmares By AEO, an AEOStudios company, is currently working with their partner, the Majestic Event Center, to create alternatives to this event, whose storyline was loosely based on the popular original Terror on Church Street attraction, in downtown Orlando. Please stay tuned for further announcements of future events.
All advanced ticket sales will be refunded shortly thereafter this announcement, all indiegogo contributions that are eligible for perks, will be fulfilled with merchandise from the now delayed attraction.
“The Nightmare isn’t over, it has yet to begin,” ended Ostrander. “We want to extend a big thank you and our gratitude to all those who have helped this project come along this far, and this is the only the beginning.”

At the request of Nightmares By AEO, please allow the Nightmares and the Majestic Event Center teams time to develop further and future plans regarding this season and beyond prior to submitting questions and enquiries.
