Haunted houses allow people to confront their greatest fears or share the story of their jack-o'-lantern head transplant in an appropriate venue. Delve into scary situations with today's Groupon: for $15, you get a VIP pass to Frightmare Haunted House in Westminster (a $30 value); the pass includes admission to both of Frightmare's houses and allows patrons to bypass the line.
Screams from two haunted attractions drift through the darkness that surrounds Frightmare's haunted tableaus, which sprawl across more than 100,000 square feet of swampland. An authentic multistory barn looms over cornfields and soggy marsh, as prop-bearing actors garbed in ghoul suits lurch around dim corners and terrify guests with gruesome displays or factoids about the rising costs of skeleton education. Explore the weathered farm building's chiaroscuro rooms or wander among tombstones in an eerily lit cemetery. The House of Darkness attraction beckons visitors into a demented funhouse brimming with circus-themed nightmares such as enormous leering clown heads. Attraction staff keeps mortals safe with an advanced closed-circuit camera system and panoply security guards.
The Frightmare Compound
Flesh-eating zombies, cannibalistic clowns, nightmarish ghouls, and haunting ghosts prowl The Frightmare Compound, ready to snatch those foolish enough to venture through its fear-infested grounds. Known as one of Colorado's oldest and largest haunted attractions, the compound houses two terrifying attractions on more than 100,000 square feet of swampland. Horrors unseen wait for new victims inside the first compound, where a haunted barn filled with terrors is the least of visitors' worries. The second attraction, the House of Darkness, was the site of a terrible massacre and lay abandoned for some time until the Frightmare staff brought it to their site. Soon after, the ghosts of those slain began roaming its halls, and clowns with a taste for human flesh found their way inside its corridors.
