Do you have what it takes to confront Pennywise the Clown in person?
Next month Warner Bros. is offering horror fans the chance to follow in the footsteps of the Losers Club in It: Chapter Two: The Vaults Experience, which promises to bring to life breathtaking sets and terrifying scenes from the It sequel in an epic and highly interactive adventure.
Spanning over 11,000 square feet of bespoke sets built into a vast underground maze of disused railway tunnels beneath London’s Waterloo train station, the experience will let ticket holders immerse themselves in the chilling world of Pennywise the clown, and the dark underbelly of Derry, ahead of the release of It: Chapter Two on 6 September.
Prospective participants who must be aged 16 and above are warned that the experience is “not for the faint of heart” and those with pre-existing conditions that may be adversely affected should not take part.

Having experienced a similar event for The Conjuring 2 at the Waterloo Vaults, the Yahoo Movies UK team wholeheartedly endorses this message. It’s not been confirmed if Pennywise himself will be stalking the maze, but we doubt he’d pass up the chance.
It’s a completely free experience that will be open for a limited time only from Saturday, 31 August to Wednesday 4 September, and tickets for the experience will be available from 9am on 6 August.
It: Chapter Two picks up the story of the Losers Club 27 years after they defeated Pennywise the Clown in 2017’s It. Now adults, the Losers have long since gone their separate ways. However, people are disappearing again, so Mike, the only one of the group to remain in their hometown, calls the others home.
Damaged by the experiences of their past, they must each conquer their deepest fears to destroy Pennywise once and for all putting them directly in the path of the shape-shifting clown that has become deadlier than ever.
