Hey folks... we at HPI are doing a new haunted house at the Lemp Brewery deep underground and I mean WAY DEEP underground. We are building a haunted house inside what might be one of the coolest places on earth.

They have caves, rooms that look like Dracula would live there and much more. This place is right down the street from Darkness.

During next years haunt show we will open this attraction for a tour.

We are going to do some changes to Darkness and do a LIGHTS ON ONLY tour of Darkness and a complete show tour of Lemp.

Check out some pics.

We signed a long term lease a few weeks ago and already started building the walls and are doing electrical work now.

Wish us luck.

Very cool indeed!!
With the name Lemp, If the haunt don't work out it could be turned into a anti-Viagra factory...

Very cool! I can only begin to imagine what you & your staff will be able to come up with for this place!

maybe they just tell the tourists this, maybe it's not true? Does the basement you will be building in connect to the Lemp mansion across the blocks?
Is there really an auditorium and a swimming pool in those caves where the social elite spent their winters?
Are you going to have to replace that scary old freight elevator to get down to that lower level?
Maybe build a slide down into it? Like they have in the Austrian salt mines for the tourists?
I know,I know, too many questions.

Larry, you couldnt ask for a better location! The Lemp Caverns was one of my favorite haunts back in the day and its great to hear your reviving the awesome place.
Congrats on the new attraction! I know you guys will make it a must see.
Whats the theme gonna be?

Just about one of the greatest settings I've seen for a haunt, along with the Pennhurst Asylum.

I take it you'll have it up and running for this season?

That is cool you are bringing that old haunt back. It would be cool if you stuck with the Lemp Brewery Theme I think. Not sure what your gonna do but out of due respect I think the Lemps and the Lemp Family ghosts need to be honored in being part of the theme. It is a great story I wouldnt stray from it. Looking forward to see it. Im like Greg I went through the old caverns ect in years past when they had a haunt there. It is very cool and has alot of history to it. More than likely haunted as well. Please post pics or threads of your progress on Lemp. Thanks Larry! Best of Luck!

Larry - Got your email the other day. You mentioned a third haunt this year.......LEMP BREWERY!! How AWESOME!

Ive been to St Louis twice now and both times drove by the Lemp location and thought how bad ass those buildings are....never realizing the history and what might lay within the walls or benieth the soil there.

AWESOME!!

Consider me down for the triple combo this year. Cant wait!

I went to the Lemp caverns the first year the Darkness opened.. maybe 17 - 18 years ago?

That is a HUGE score. Got to be one of the best locations. Ever.

Thanks!

So I read a little about it on Scarefest.com. Is the name gonna be the Lemp Brewery Haunted House? Just wondering.
Thanks

Planning the scenes NOW...

We will have some interesting scenes and theme. Everything will relate to Germans, Beer, or things you might find in a sewer, cave or underground.

We'll get this haunt ready to go for this year but we'll really focus on work on it for the haunt show in March. Should be fun!

Sounds really cool! I know your great when it comes to themeing. I cant wait. It will probably be the first haunt I see this year. Im doing Lemp first. Darkness second. Then Creepy World. They all are gonna be great.

More tickets from Lemp. Larry

I've watched the DVD on detailing your haunted house several times & from what I can tell of this new (old) place you've already got half the work done already! Bricks, old rusty looking pipes, atmosPHERE, DARN! I wish I had the luck you have! Great find though! Just like Ben said, HUGE score!

Kelly Anderson

Larry- Just curious how long of a tour it will be through Lemp? Do you have a set length of time for the tour that you are shooting for or do you just plan for a certain amount of rooms and it is what it is?

Just really interested in how you plan for the time factor in the planning phase of your projects.

Again awesome location and cant wait to see it!!

So Larry,

This will be YOUR haunt, not a haunt you are building FOR the Lemp property??

If so, now your biggest competition is......YOU!

I would think the biggest challenge is going to be emergency exiting to appease the Fire departments!

Best of luck, I know you'll do an awesome job...can't wait!

So just to clarify, you're planning on openning this year?

We're flying to MO on Oct. 14th. Three haunts in STL won't be too much for a night... I hope...

CONGRATS!!!!! LOVE THE PLACE!!!!!

Underground, deeply residing , waiting for things above ground to calm down, sort themselves out, become civilized, normal again?
"Who goes there?"
"Arrgh!
"They have found us! I hear a machine sound coming this way! Can our door hold them out?"
"They seem to be well organized, they have matching uniforms, they swarm as they attack, like insects from a hive, one mind, one agenda."
"You mean...?"
"Yes it is."

"The Cub Scouts!"
"Hey they have their Darkness at Lemp tickets, lettem in."

Looking great Larry. I love these older buildings like this.

Cant wait to see what you do with it.

I may be jumping the gun on this but here it goes anyway. I saw the monster on the scarefest.com site. And its a Brainstorm butcher standing in front of Lemp Brewery. Is this just something temporary your going with for the theme? Or is this gonna be like some knockoff of Hostel? Just wondering. Like I said in previous posts the Lemps deserve to be part of the theme of this haunt not just the name. This is a place Im and many others are fond of and dont want to see the story changed like some have done in the past. One is MTV'S Fear. They changed names and botched the story up. It is a great place with a great history and story! I just dont think it needs to be changed.
Thanks,
Damon

Right now everything with Lemp is temporary because we don't have much time to get this done. We will build the haunted house but for the TW show we'll totally make it better. How many people build a major attraction in like a month or two... we are having to hire like a dozen people to get this done.

But I like the logo for now we'll improve on more later.

Tyler do you think I would rip off someone or do you think it would be the other way around someone ripping me off... I WOULD NEVER rip off anyone. The monster you are talking about is MINE and always has been MINE! It was made for me by Brainstorm Studios... I let Rodney use it.

So before someone goes off saying Rodney is doing something now it was a deal I worked out with him so he could use it from me. Hope that fixed that issues... I'm really just in shock that anyone would think i would rip off someone elses artwork. Unreal!

On another note I will upload several more photos tonight.

Additionally we have all the walls installed in the Lemp. We are taking a break from Creepyworld to focus on getting the maze fixed in lemp. Once the paint comes in we'll paint Lemp and start putting it together.

Lastly, we will totally redo Lemp for the Transworld show. We will also redo parts of Darkness for the TW show as well. I think what we'll do is a deal where you go to both haunts in the same night. One haunt will be without actors (Darkness) and one will be with actors (Lemp).

We'll work on something like that... I hope that is enough to keep people entertained. We will have to think of something WAY over the top to do inside The Darkness.

I have no idea's yet but I will get one eventually.

Sounds great looking forward to seeing more pics.

Regarding the artwork thing it's Larry who had had his artwork stolen several times, and propably Brainstorm's biggest customer he has no need to steal artwork....

I wonder if they ever caught those theives who stole their props back in february 2010 (I think). Never heard anything more on it. I just hope they caught those guys. From reading the original post, it looks like they had quite a haul.
