A visit with Tim Virgin to favorite haunt HellsGate (Episode 892)

Let me just get this out of the way: The annual opening of HellsGate is one of my most anticipated events of the year. The immersive, engaging haunt is world class, and I leave there smiling and giddy every year.

For this episode, I brought longtime friend/colleague Tim Virgin (94.7 WLS, Q101, WLUP, etc.) to experience HellsGate with me. After our journey, we were joined in the car by HellsGate founder/owner John LaFlamboy.

Tim and I share our thoughts and favorite moments from our visit, and John puts everything in context. We dig into the finer details of operating HellsGate, as well as the creative spirit that guides it.

HellsGate provides one of the most entertaining, memorable experiences you’ll have this year. Make a point of getting there before it gets swallowed back into hell in November.
