Alcone Enters the Terror Vault

As we move closer to the Halloween season, Alcone Company likes to get its scare on. After all, special effects makeup is a big part of what we do! That’s why we are especially thrilled to announce that we’re the official makeup sponsor of Terror Vault and Apocalypse, a zombie survival game, produced by Into the Dark Productions. Both of these haunt attractions take place at the historic San Francisco Mint building from October 10th through November 10th.

Terror Vault takes you on a 45-minute immersive tour of the eerie San Francisco Mint building where you’ll come face-to-face with the despicable horrors that plague its secret prison. For those who cannot be frightened enough, you can opt-in to a more interactive experience where the terror becomes more personal. And for “scaredy-cats” like me, this means you can also easily opt-out and enjoy the role of a voyeur while on the tour. Truly something for everyone!

Last year, Terror Vault sold out every single night, frightening the thousands of haunt fans that dared to enter, not to mention the press who covered it:

“Terror Vault at the Old Mint Is Legitimately Freaking Terrifying.” – SF Weekly

“I did not survive the Terror Vault. I bailed out of there so fast because I was terrified!” – Betty Yu, KPIX 5

This year promises to be even more horrific fun with the addition of a second attraction called Apocalypse, a zombie survival game where those who dare play it work in teams to help save humanity. Players are challenged to navigate the labyrinth of zombie-infested rooms and solve puzzles that lead to the hidden vaccine, which is the only way to escape and survive the zombie Apocalypse!

Lead makeup artist Dani Spinks is hard at work designing nightmarish characters with 3rd Degree and our other products, and we can’t wait to see what she creates with them!

We’re so excited to work with this talented team and be part of such a bloodcurdling and wickedly fun even this Halloween season. For more information and tickets, head to
