The Fear Experience 2014

2014 September 13

This year, if you want to experience something really chilling, check out The Fear Experience. It’s been rated as the top haunted house in Ohio by many of the top publications. Step inside the 90,000 square foot fear zone if you dare. Once inside you’ll navigate through an abandoned mental facility, take a stop at the Centralia County Fair & Circus, and then get lost in your worst nightmare. This event is only open each weekend (Friday-Sunday) from September 19th through November 1st. Hours are from 7 pm to midnight on Friday and Saturday and until 10 pm on Sundays. General admission tickets are just $22 each. Of course there are ways for you to save a little extra money on your admission.

Get up to 50% Off Admission to The Fear Experience

Now you can purchase your tickets online through their website. This can save you time and money. If you do purchase your tickets online then be sure to check for promo codes. You should notice a promo code box right above the ticket selection options. Just enter your coupon in that box and click apply. You should then see the discount appear right below. You may also want to check out the daily deal / coupon sites like Livingsocial where you can sometimes save as much as 50% off select tickets packages for the Fear Experience. Also, there are group discounts offered for groups of 10 or more people. If you have a group visiting then just make your reservation by calling 216-245-3327 so that you can get the group discount rate.

Note, there are two other ticket options that are available besides the general admission tickets. There’s the Fast Pass ticket which gets you access to the Fast Pass line and access to all 4 haunted houses. Your wait time is significantly less (typically no longer than 30 minutes). Then there’s the Immediate Access which allows you to completely skip the line and be the next group to enter. You pay a little more but it is worth it on a busy night.
