Name: Ramon
Age: 24
Hometown: Baldwin Park, CA
Occupation: Distribution center
Number of Escapes: First rave ever.
Favorite horror monster or villain? I really don’t have one, but my favorite monster is a werewolf. They aren’t immortal or anything like that, but they nearly have superhuman strength. They’re just badass. Second to that are vampires, because they’re immortal. Oh dude, I would definitely be a vampire: live for eternity, party it up, just live life.
You’re home by yourself and hear footsteps in the other room. What do you do? I turn on all the lights. I check outside and make sure the doors are locked, and then I grab something to eat and just play video games till I go to to sleep. I always carry a bat in my room. There’s no reason to be scared or anything; just be prepared. And if I do find somebody, fists are flying or bats are swinging first, and then questions later. What are you doing in my house?

 

Name: Laura
Age: 27
Hometown: Walnut, CA
Occupation: Full-time student
Number of Escapes: First time at a rave.
What’s your Halloween spirit animal? A cat. I know it’s very stereotypical, but they’re just so free, and it’s what it stands for. Everyone has their own meaning of what it stands for, but I love cats! I’m a cat lady at heart.

 

Name: Alberto
Age: 25
Hometown: Oakland, CA
Number of Escapes: First time.
If you had the power to cast a magic spell on anyone, who would it be, and what would you do? I’d cast a spell on Deorro to make sure he can come to Escape, because he’s the best DJ I’ve seen.
What scares you more than anything else in life? Life itself. You never know what to expect. You plan something, and then something else happens. You never know what life is going to throw at you. You always have to prepare yourself for whatever happens.

 

Name: Louis
Age: 25
Hometown: San Jose, CA

Name: Alex
Age: 25
Hometown: Los Angeles
Occupation: Waitress and criminal justice student.
Number of Escapes: First time.
What is your favorite thing about Halloween, and why? I feel like it’s where everyone gets to dress up and have tons of fun; everyone steps out of their comfort zone.
