So, what happens when the Renaissance Faire closes down? The Forest of Fear sets up across the street. Tons of fun is to be had in this mostly outdoor faire including awesome photo ops (see left), tons of crap to buy, an insane clown maze, axe throwing, and?actors in costume harassing you and each other.
There is the Slaughterhouse with “more than 20 rooms of horrifying terror”, and the scariest house of all (seriously we were grabbing each other and screaming) is the one that is just pitch black, that's it – pitch black and the most honestly terrified I've been.
Just be forewarned what you will not find here is booze. We went two years ago (don't we look younger) and I've found it to be the best Halloween activity so far, but who knows what awaits us this year. I'll let you know.
