PEASTER (CBSDFW.COM) – A new attraction in Parker County is promising to give you a fun dose of fright, and a bible lesson at the same time.
“The Apocalypse Experience” at the Capernaum First Century Village in the town of Peaster opens this weekend to visitors.
It’s billed as a frightening, bible based, live walk through production depicting, “The End of Times” according to the producer Tamy Lane.
Lane says it took them a year to build the make believe town of “Judge Mint” where the production takes place. Crews designed a quaint town square to show what a pre-apocalyptic society looks like. They then built another replica of the square depicting chaos and disaster after a natural disaster.
Lane said, “This is like a movie set and so I think it is going to be a fun neat experience for people.”
Visitors to “Judge Mint” are guided through a 45-minute tour while actors perform their roles. At times the production takes visitors to very dark and spooky scenes set in Hell and in Satan’s chambers.
Lane added, “It’s kind of like a haunted house, but a haunted house with a message.” The story lines behind the live production according to Lane were inspired by stories referencing the end of times in the bible.
She says it will be a spooky experience just in time for Halloween, but she says there is also a lesson she hopes visitors learn. “Judge Mint does come if you try and take God out of the society,” says Lane.
The amusement production will open to the public beginning this weekend, admission cost is $20 per person.
