Episode 279 – Deep in the bowels of Hellsgate haunted house with 88 Fingers Louie

Oh, man… what a fun episode! I met up with Dan and Nat from 88 Fingers Louie in Lockport, Illinois to join me in walking through Hellsgate Haunted House. You can listen to hear what we thought about it, and hear what Hellsgate creator John Laflamboy has to say about its history and vision.

Discussed this week:

  • 88 Fingers Louie Denis Buckley, a frequent CCC guest, may not have had the intestinal fortitude to take on Hellsgate.
  • The mystery ghoul who followed us through our entire journey through Hellsgate.
  • How John conceptualized the haunted house: Legos!
  • Some of the highlights of walking through Hellsgate.
  • Dan kept his cool throughout the haunt.
  • Dan’s a grower, not a shower.
  • There are a lot of people employed by Hellsgate.
  • Seriously big bands have used the Hellsgate property for videos.
  • Hellsgate is ever-changing.
  • The “swamp water” effect… so cool.
  • I have the crap scared out of me around the 15:20 mark. It was amazing.
  • What’s next for 88 Fingers Louie (T1 Fest!).
