For the loyal Friday the 13th fans, this is going to be nothing short of a dream come true. Camp No-Be-Bo-Sco, a real Boy Scouts camp in New Jersey is the real location which was shown as Camp Crystal Lake in the original Friday the 13th movie. Occasionally, the camp lets fans take tours on a real Friday the 13th, which is quite a cool thing if you ask us. But, this April, you can even camp overnight at the real world Camp Crystal Lake for the first time in history.
The thing to watch out is that there is a tremendous demand for something like this. To further enhance the experience of spending the night at the very place where Friday the 13th was shot, one of the original film’s stars, Adrienne King will be present at the event. So how can one get to stay overnight at the location where Jason Voorhees chopped countless youngsters with his machete? Well, you need to bid on it. Below is the information on how it works, courtesy the people at Camp No-Be-Bo-Sco.
“In addition to the regular tours, there will be two VIP experiences available via a ticket auction. A limited number of VIP guests will take the regular tour and then continue on an overnight experience at the camp with some exclusive morning activities with our special guest. This will truly be a once-in-a-lifetime experience for hardcore F13 fans. To learn more, please browse to our VIP page and place your bid for a VIP ticket by 11:59 PM EST on February, 27th, 2018. Ticket invitations will be sent to winning bidders after the bidding closes. You’ll have 24 hours to complete your ticket purchase before the invitation expires and is offered to the next winning bidder.”
There is going to be a morning tour from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Friday, April 13th, which will cost you $135. On both Friday, April 13th and Saturday, April 14th, an afternoon tour will be conducted from 3 to 10 p.m. costing $175, and the VIP experience which will start at 3 p.m. and end on 11 a.m. the next day (including dinner and breakfast). The standard tours will be offered to interested fans through a lottery, due to the high-demand.
“In order to relieve the stress of the ticketing process for our fans, we will be moving to a simple lottery system for these tours. For a chance at a ticket, please browse to the tickets page and complete the entry form. Names will be randomly chosen, and ticket invitations will be sent via email starting on March 5th, 2018. If your name is selected, you’ll have 24 hours to complete your ticket purchase before the invitation expires and is offered to the next randomly chosen name.”
Please note that you have to be at least 21-years-old to be eligible for the VIP experience. By the looks of it, a new Friday the 13th film doesn’t seem to be coming up in the near future. Therefore, this is going to be awesome for the true fans to get their dose. If you want to be there, then you should act now, because the available spots will be taken up soon. You can visit the official Crystal Lake Tours website to sign up for the tickets.
