A haunted house is born from a past tragedy, be it a grisly murder, a mysterious disappearance, or a long-forgotten bologna sandwich buried beneath the floorboards. Sign on for a spooky tour of an eerily cursed residence with today’s Groupon to Ocala Fear Fest. Choose between the following options:
- For $12, you get admission for two people (a $24 value).
- For $24, you get admission for four people (a $48 value).<p>
Ocala Fear Fest’s hair-raising frightsmiths challenge unsuspecting guests to brave their fears with a stroll through a devilish domicile stocked with spine-tingling ghouls and spooks. Hapless victims scream, stumble, and attempt to escape the house while being relentlessly pursued by classic film villains, such as Jason Voorhees, Freddy Krueger, and the entire cast of Gigli. During the approximately 10-minute ordeal, pulses will quicken in the face of brain-craving zombies, diabolical clowns, and bloodthirsty vampires.
Though Friday and Saturday nights from 8 p.m. to 2 a.m. are reserved for scare-devils ages 18 and older, Ocala Fear Fest has set aside certain Thursdays—October 13, 20, and 31—for all-ages family nights between the hours of 8 p.m. and 11 p.m. Timid visitors can summon courage on Saturdays from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. with the help of free live music from bands such as Undone Perfection and Epidemic.
