I (Couldn't) Survive The Purge: Breakout Experience Harder, Creepier Than it Looks

Four large semi-trucks plastered with black and red ink spelling out the words "The Purge Breakout: Can You Survive the Night?" are set up in the middle of the lot in front of Mana Wynwood.

As a clever promotion for the new upcoming film, The Purge: Anarchy, Universal has created this interactive experience for fans to get a taste of what it would be like to live through a night of purging.

We made the sacrifice to undergo the experience for you to make sure it wasn't too scary, because we care about your well-being. Also, because we're masochists.
