GYRO'S 4-D Fear Factory Introduces the Bay Area's First 4-D Haunted Attraction and Halloween Experience

21 Years of Fear Coming to Raging Waters -- San Jose, California's Premier Water Park

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - September 22, 2009) - GYRO's 4-D Fear Factory, the region's oldest, most popular and scariest Halloween event, has added a fourth dimension of fear this year -- smell -- making typical haunted houses seem tame. With more than 21 years of professional experience in delivering live haunted attractions, GYRO's 4-D Fear Factory is not for the faint of heart.

What does 4-D mean?

The intense 4-D experience is completely immersive. Using unique 4-D technology that includes screens and scents, guests are transported into a nightmarish encounter that thrills the senses.

"Only those who seriously want to be transported to a truly ghoulish destination should explore the new GYRO 4-D Fear Factory," said GYRO's spokesperson Kurt French. "With the addition of smell to the overall guest experience, the definition of '3-D' didn't really cut it. No event I have been involved with has really taken on as frightening a dimension such as this. '4-D' is a term you will learn to fear."

Guests will experience six unique attractions as they travel through GYRO's chilling 4-D Underworld:

     4-D Underworld -- Wrongly accused serial killer, Stryker, put to death
     in an electric chair, comes back to life seeking vengeance. Will you
     escape his grasp in this 4-D haunted experience?

     undead movie villains and re-experience the horrors of Halloweens
     past with famed horror movie director, Harvey.

     fear in this perplexing maze of chain links and apparitions. Heavy
