Timothy Haskell, creator of Nightmare Haunted House, has announced plans for a new immersive event, Full Bunny Contact, a twisted and whimsical weekend-long Easter festival. Patrons can wander the grounds and participate in games and activities, including a main event that pits New Yorkers against hardcore bunnies in what is described as "an Easter egg hunt for the ages."
During the hunt, attendees will be locked in a 16-by-20-foot steel cage where they will take on three gigantic and highly competitive Easter bunnies who will try to prevent them from collecting eggs filled with cash and prizes as a shot clock runs down. Additional games set to join the festival include a dunk tank, Shoot the Peep, Duck Like Rabbits, The Keister Bunny, E.S.P-STER Island, Egg Putt, Little Bunny Fu Fu's Revenge, Hare-y Up, and more.
"This is pure, silly fun with an element of sport," says creator Timothy Haskell. "New Yorkers love to celebrate holidays and FBC combines the familiar with the extreme." The event's creative team includes Paul Smithyman (production designer), David Hinkle (art director), and John Harlacher, who codirects with Haskell.
The festival will run at the Clemente Soto Velez Cultural Center, at 107 Suffolk St., from April 17-20.
