Fear Fair hosting Valentine-themed haunt

Heart-pounding romance has a whole new meaning this Valentine’s Day at Fear Fair’s Roses are Dead experience.

The Seymour haunt, 800 A Ave. East at Freeman Field, is opening its doors for a special two-night Valentine-themed event.

On Friday and Saturday, couples looking to ditch the traditional white tablecloth dinner, flowers and chocolate can uptake their date night in a scarier direction at the haunt. The event will feature Fear Fair’s traditional brand of scares with a Valentine’s twist.

“There’s nothing exciting about another fixed-price dinner and a box of chocolates,” said Brett Hays, owner and creative director of Fear Fair. “With Roses are Dead, we’ve created a night of heart-pounding fun for couples and groups of friends alike. It’s something for people tired of the same old routine. Plus, nothing brings people closer than a good scare.”

The show will be open from 8 to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday. General admission tickets are $25 and available online at fearfair.com. VIP slash passes, which allow visitors to upgrade their tickets and skip the line, can be purchased for an additional $10.

Limited tickets are available for this event and may sell out. Tickets can be purchased online at no additional cost or at the door.
