Fear Fair Haunted Attraction Review (2016)

Fear Fair

Fear Fair goes Mad this Halloween, sending ticket buyers to the Ghost-Apocalypse!

Voted number 7 on USA Today’s Top Ten Haunted Attractions list for 2016, Fear Fair in Seymour, Indiana continues to rack up accolades on both the local and national level for its massive scale and attention to detail. This season marks Phase Two in owner/operator Brett Hays’ sinister plan to turn Fear Fair into a completely original haunt minus the movie scenes and pop culture characters it was once renowned for.

Phase One, completed last year, took haunt fans deep into the haunted world of the New Orleans voodoo underworld, down Bourbon Street, into the gator infested bayous and through the crumbling above ground cemeteries that the Big Easy is infamous for.

This year Fear Fair has constructed its biggest and most elaborate renovation to date, which will be obvious to anyone who has been to this attraction before as it envelops the entire front of the massive haunt building in a new post-apocalyptic façade. Drawing inspiration from the “Mad Max” movies and the “Fallout” video games, The Ascension takes guests into a world gone mad in an attempt to escape the radioactive mutants that have resulted from a nuclear war deep under the earth’s surface.

You enter the haunt through a twisting, turning cave system where the National Guard attempt to evacuate you to the surface in an industrial elevator that promises to take you up 16 stories to the safety of the world above. Of course, it wouldn’t be a haunt if something didn’t “go completely wrong.”

You’ll come face-to-face with steampunk killers that have endured extreme body modification to become living weapons as you make your way through a post-apocalyptic Hell that forces you to confront giant, mutated monsters, mechanized abominations and electrified death!

Still featured at Fear Fair this year, “Silent Hill” brings Pyramid Head and the other crawling, creeping freaks of that video game and movie series to terrifying life. “Saw” also still separates the girls from the boys to horrific effect this year, but these two pop culture based scenes may be living on borrowed time, as Phase Three is already in the planning stages that will ultimately make Fear Fair a completely original haunt.

Also new this year are some added thrills to boost the experience including a vintage bell ringing game, a new coffin ride and a mechanical bull purchased from the legendary honky tonk, Gilley’s in Pasadena, TX that quite possibly may have appeared on screen in John Travolta’sUrban Cowboy.” There’s never a dull moment in line as guests are treated to a full DJ hosted show with blasting rave music, flashing lights and fog machines.

Fear Fair will be open Friday and Saturday, Oct. 28 & 29 from 8 PM until 1 AM and Oct. 30 & 31 from 8 PM until 10 PM. They will also open for a special “flashlight” event on Friday and Saturday Nov. 4 & 5 from 8 PM until TBD. General Admission tickets are $20 and Fast Passes are $25.
