Mountasia Fun Center's Jack the Ripper
Virtual Reality Immersive Experience

Ready to travel back to 1888 Whitechapel London during the "Autumn of Terror," when the infamous Jack the Ripper had the city paralyzed with fear? You don't need a time machine, but you do need high-tech VR headsets and backpack computers that will allow you to roam freely through an old abandoned, haunted wax museum called The Wax House. The Legend of Jack the Ripper experience, lasting about 30 minutes, includes a media-based pre-show providing guests a glimpse into the history of the murders. Once inside the Wax House, you'll pick up and hold virtual items, open drawers, search for clues and work together as a team of four to find your way out - or become the next victim. The Jack the Ripper Immersive Experience opens August 31 and runs through Halloween night. Tickets are expected to sell out, so snatch yours quickly.

VIA's Monster

VIA's signature BASH event will transform this year's festivities into an evening of elegant ghoulishness and costumed couture on Friday, October 26 at the Hyatt Regency Valencia. In classic VIA style, Santa Clarita's leading business-to-business organization's annual gala's theme-inspired decor, chef-inspired dining and live entertainment and dancing make this signature event a must-attend. Costumes are encouraged, black tie is optional and flirty fun is guaranteed.

The evening's entertainment headlines The Urban Renewal Project, a Los Angeles-based band that uses instruments of a bygone era to create a signature sound that blurs the boundaries between soul, jazz and hip-hop. The group features a big-band horn section, singer and rapper who perform upbeat originals and fresh interpretations of everything from jazz standards to recent hits. Expect high energy performances to complement the night.

The VIA BASH, title sponsored by Nola Aronson's Advanced Audiology, benefits the VIA Education Foundation with special emphasis on Connecting to Success, which delivers a high-impact workforce preparation program for students. Each year, junior-class students from all schools within the William S. Hart Union High School District benefit from time spent with working professionals as they prepare to interview for their first job or ready themselves for college applications the following year. They are also able to grasp real-world issues that may challenge their ethics and receive guidance on how to handle money.
