DON'T GO ALONE...Fortress of Fear ScreamPark is Ohio's top rated haunted attraction located in the dead center of Akron, Canton and Youngstown.

Your tour begins through the doors of a fallen empire otherwise known as the Fortress of Fear which historians believe to be dated back to the 1400’s. Excavators working the property for future development discovered and unearthed a fortress that nearly burned to the ground, taking the lives of those that inhabited the empire and those that surrounded the grounds. As the excavation project continued, workers witnessed a multitude of paranormal activity leaving onlookers questioning the true evil that exists within the ruins and into the backwoods of this fallen empire.

A groundskeeper by the name of Elmer, incarnated by the overlord of the fortress, has been seen wandering the grounds carrying an ancient artifact, the overlord’s crown stolen centuries ago. The enraged overlord demanded the collection of souls that once inhabited his fortress, those that surrounded the grounds and of anyone who disturbs his empire. Until Elmer returns the crown back to the ruins, the curse by the overlord will not be released and will continue to control him while satiating his hunger for more souls.

Review This Haunt
  • Email Verified best value haunted attraction

    For the price of just a haunted house at other locations, you get carnival style rides, go carts and a massive haunted house. They really allow space in between groups in the haunted house instead of just ramming everyone thru like they do at most attractions. The characters roaming around the park were amazing in the way they interacted with customers and their costumes/make up. They took time to sing "happy birthday" to my mother (we were there on her actual birthday and it was their idea). Absolutely first rate!

  • Email Verified BEST HAUNTED HOUSE EVER!

    I absolutely love the whole atmosphere here! From the very beginning, scare actors greeted us in character. The rides were fun, the food was good and the park was very clean! The haunted house.... VERY worth the wait! They have each group go one at a time so everyone gets their own special experience. There is "entertainment" for all the people taking selfies while they wait in line. Photo bombing actors with props startling everyone. Not easily scared, like me? There's something for everyone in the haunted house! You'll scream at least once by the end!! I won't give away any of the scares, go check it out for yourself! Also, Skittles the clown and the female clown were my personal faves ;)

    I’m glad I went to the bathroom before going through the haunted house. I got so scared I would have definitely peed my pants.

  • Amazingly scary and awesome

    This is the second year we’ve went and it still didn’t disappoint. It was a great way to kick off Halloween weekend. It’s worth the money every single penny. We’ll be back! Skittles the Clown was horribly creep but the best!!

  • Email Verified Screamed the whole time!!

    The scare actors knew just what to say to scare me. I looked down the whole time and one said “LOOK AT ME!!” And one person even followed me through multiple rooms looking over my shoulder. You’ll have the most fun if you’re in the back which I unfortunately (fortunately?) was. I would definitely come back again!!

  • Email Verified all new Fortress of Fear

    This haunt has moved from it's location last year. An incredible amount of work has gone into this new property to continue the high standards of the old Fortress. The new screampark includes amusement park rides, a midway, gift shop and food vendors. The haunt itself is shorter than before, but the price is adjusted accordingly and with the plans I heard about for next year, this will be a place to come back to. My family really enjoyed it. It's much more than just a haunted house.

  • New Haunted House - Better Location

    The place has moved to a larger location and the move is paying off. Parking was much easier. Only one of the haunted houses has moved so far but it is completely different than the previous location. It is jammed pack from start to finish. A good balance of actors and props. The go karts were tons of fun. Excited to see how it grows!

  • Email Verified Absolutely amazing haunt

    Absolutely amazing place. I liked the idea behind the haunted houses, and it sets the tone. The two haunted houses had lots of nerve wracking scares and excellent props. My GF jumped and screamed many times in the haunted rooms. The actors were professional and they stayed in character. The escape room was a bit confusing. We just made out in time. Ticket rates were not too expensive. Ideally, the place is not recommended for children under 12 years. Recommend this place.

  • Sooo exciting

    Had a great time with my two kids. They were 11 and 13 year old. It was their first time and they were taken aback. It was a blast at the fortress. Themed after a 17th century castle, we found ourselves running around in the dark and narrow halls. It was dark, fear and uncertainty does grip you. The three of us had tough time finding our way out. The escape room was top notch and had us think aloud. It was exciting. I am not sure when I felt spooky at a haunt event. Great work very well done.

  • Worth the drive

    I, wife and teenage daughters drove for more than an hour to Fortress of fear. But what we saw and experienced in the haunt was worth the drive and money spent on tickets. Right from the time we pulled into the parking lot, the scares began. There were few monsters there to scare the crap out of the visitors. The haunted houses were well designed with attention to details. The rooms had different types of scares, props and creepy actors who will freak you out. The best part is that you will never run into another group and ruin your fun. The escape room was a bonus. Both my daughters liked the type of scares and intensity. I am looking forward to visit next year.

  • Email Verified Scaryyyy

    Scary is just a word and the place and its ambience resonates it everywhere. The blackout night is exceptional. It has the best use of sound effect that scares us the most. The actors did a stupendous job. Used their skills very well to keep us on our toes. The props were surreal you could never make out the difference with the real stuff. The staff was friendly and helpful. I was surprised by the way they perfectly portrayed scenes till the end. I had the best time with my friends and all of us agree to make a date next year.
