The Purge: Breakout coming to your city?

Some US cities will be receiving a taste of what it would be like to be in The Purge this summer as a promotion for The Purge: Anarchy.

Producer Jason Blum announced that Blumhouse Productions and Universal is presenting The Purge: Breakout; a touring promo serving an interactive way to introduce fans to the world of The Purge. The setup will apparently "capture" guests prior to the event start and the guests will have to solve a series of puzzles to escape. Blum elaborated, "This experience allows fans across the county the chance to immerse themselves in the intricate world that the series' writer-director, James DeMonaco, has so painstakingly crafted. We hope that they enjoy being scared out of their minds."

The official synopsis of the event is posted on the website and is as follows:
The Purge: Breakout is an immersive horror escape experience traveling throughout the United States in the summer of 2014. In a first-of-its-kind activation, guests will have to solve puzzles and figure out clues to breakout and survive THE PURGE. Self contained in four semi-trucks, the escape experience is produced by Universal Pictures and Blumhouse. Based on popular escape and horror interactive events throughout Asia, The Purge: Breakout will give fans a chance to experience all the fun of an escape while getting a taste of the world shown through the film series THE PURGE.

If you're interested I hope you live in one of these cities:

Atlanta, GA (5/29 - 6/1)
Miami, FL (6/5 - 6/8)
New York City, NY (6/13 - 6/15)
Philadelphia, PA (6/19 - 6/22)
Chicago, IL (6/27 - 6/29)
Dallas, TX (7/3 - 7/8)
Los Angeles, CA (7/11 - 7/20)

I would assume this is why the release date for The Purge: Anarchy was delayed. This was probably in the works and instead of doing another Halloween Horror Nights thing at Universal Studios, why not take it out on the road?
