Yes, you read that correctly and we couldn't be more excited. Just imagine the visual of seeing the Caped Crusader throw down in a dance-off against another Batman or better yet... one of his infamous villains.

It's as epic as it sounds.

A Night in Arkham: Batdance Edition

The cosplaying community is strong and what we love about it most is how inviting the community is. The folks over at Gem State Comic Con are hosting this legendary event next Saturday, November 4 and you better believe there will be prizes for what they're called the "Batdance Competition."

And that's not even the best part! According to the official page for the event, it will take place at Old Idaho Penitentiary.

Why the Old Idaho Penitentiary?

If you're like some of us who grew up on the 90s Batman cartoon that would air after school or maybe you're simply a fan of the Batman film franchise, you might recognize the name "Arkham."

For those who don't know, that's the name of the asylum where most of Batman's villains wind up. We have to commend Gem State Comic Con for choosing the Old Idaho Penitentiary as the backdrop for A Night in Arkham: Batdance Edition, it makes a ton of sense and the Old Idaho Pen is perfect for it.

Make sure to get your tickets online though, you won't be able to get them at the door according to the event's official page.

The Old Idaho Penitentiary is never short of attention; as a matter of fact... a horror movie was filmed there and actually wound up on Amazon Prime. Have you seen it?

The Secrets and Dark Past of The Old Idaho Penitentiary in Boise

The Old Idaho Penitentiary is well known and often named the most haunted spot in the gem state. After the second riots broke out and a massively destructive fire in the kitchen and dining area in 1973 the prison closed after housing some of the most dangerous criminals in the world for over 100 years.
