More on Fears Gate
Fears Gate offers four ticket options to accommodate to a wide variety of guest needs and interests, and to ensure that the experience is as mild or intense as you crave. For the 2019 season, they have teamed up with Sinister Playground to present Freak Show!
With their “Dark Tours”, your every fear will be brought to life in front of you, leaving no place to hide; however, if the experience becomes too intense, you are offered the opportunity to “Tap Out” by standing still and literally tapping your hands on top of your head until an employee escorts you out. But, if you do tap-out, you will not be allowed back in to the haunt nor given a refund.
If this attraction still sounds too intense for you, even with the safe word, you do have the option of taking their “Lights-On Tour” which is offered during the daytime. During this tour, guests can walk through the haunt with the lights on and without the fear of anyone, or anything, jumping out. This option is great for younger or more sensitive haunt fans.
On the other end of the scale, Fears Gate offers an additional experience to up the scare factor called “Coffin Ride”. This experience is the nation’s only “Double Wide Simulated Coffin Ride”, which allows the guests to discover what awaits them once the mortician finishes his handy work. As a senses driven experience, the Coffin Ride allows the guests to experience everything from the smell of roses and dirt at the graveyard to the sounds and movements of the grave diggers.
Fears Gate also offers access to their RIP Lounge which is an exclusive area for those who purchase the RIP Ticket. This area affords you the opportunity to relive your scares and startles as well as laugh at your friends and family while you watch playback on monitors of your recent experience.
Fears Gate started as a home haunt and has since evolved in to the menacing walk-through haunt that it is today. With the help of the community and volunteer work, they have been able to open back up in 2019 after going dark for a few years.
The creators describe this haunt as a “labor of love” as they use the haunt to raise money for those in need, as well as bring the community together in various ways.
