NEW YORK, October 9, 2019 -- Even though their house is a museum, in honor of the newest animated The Addams Family debuting in theaters on October 11th, Booking.com, the digital travel leader connecting travelers with the widest choice of unique places to stay, is offering guests the chance to book a real life replica of the iconic family’s home. Booking.com makes it easier for everyone to experience the world, even the most daring of guests, and this creepy, kooky, mysterious and spooky, all together ooky experience is sure to be the ultimate haunted sleepover to thrill-seekers.
The three bedroom, 3,700 square foot, 19th century era townhouse captures all the macabre that has made The Addams Family a fan favorite for decades. Guests will be able to tinker with machines in Pugsley’s Room, play with Wednesday’s beheaded doll in the living room, and even care for some of Morticia’s carnivorous plants. Decorated in true Addams Family fashion, there are vases of just rose stems, and yes, Lurch’s famous “you rang” bell. Careful not to get too spooked if Thing appears while exploring the home! The experience comes complete with spooky snacks, a screening of the feature film and more.
Located in historic Clinton Hill Brooklyn, The Addams Family Mansion will be available for $101.10 per night, in honor of the movie’s release on October 11th, 2019. Consumers can get a witch’s shawl on and a broomstick they can crawl on with bookings beginning on October 28th at 12:00PM EST, with four exclusive overnight stays occurring each night from October 29th until November 1st.
