  • Festival of fear

    Festival of fear, festival of scream, which is Fall Fear Fest for you. It was the scariest experience we had. Though we were in a group, we still felt isolated and it grew the fear in us. This outdoor event was filled with gruesome creatures and zombies with high action. There is no age restriction but still it would be advisable to keep away children under 12.It is thrilling as you face challenging scenes while you trek your way through the dark and thick forest. This is one experience I will always want to have and I am sure to return back next season.

  • Full of outdoor scares

    Full of outdoor scares. For me and wife, it was a new experience altogether. The cabin of carnage was absolutely creepy. Deads end haunt had some bone-chilling scares and props that virtually startled me off my feet. The scary, and gory characters will even chase you around. Special mention to the costumes and makeup that looked so much real. Trail of terrors also had a high scare factor. I thought actors in all these areas did very well in scaring us. Great food and beer to top it off. I would recommend this place to all scare lovers.

    There's something magical about Halloween season and Fall Fear Fest got it right! The drive out to Pioneer Waterland set the mood. We started out in the first house, the Cabin of Carnage and were greeted by a posessed nun. They had a lot of great actors in there, and the scenes were great. You can that they converted the outdoor pavilions into the haunts, and they did a great job at it. They looked great. Next We went through a corn maze, then on into the woods. While it was a little muddy, they did put down a lot of wood chips to help keep somewhat of a firm trail.....you can't control the weather in October in Ohio......the woods had some great scares including a clown with an ooga horn and bright flashlight. He was everywhere, or so it seemed. The actors in the woods were awesome. From there we went to a pallet maze, called Dead Ends haunt. The strobes they had were very disorienting, and the fog helped add to the confusion. There were separate entrances and we met in the middle, but we'd get separated inside and confused, all part of the show. The actors in there were outstanding. There weren't many, but they'd move about popping up in different places, and crack jokes in character. We got chased out by a guy with a chainsaw into the next haunt, the Freak Show. There were some very bizarre but talented actors here. From there, we finished out the night in the laser swamp. The room was filled with fog and green lasers giving an appearance of water, quite well done and effective. There was the most horrific but amazing possum character in there. You can tell he made the costume, it was very well made. He had to have put a lot of time into it. Actors emerged from the fog as if coming to the surface from under water and gave quite the scare. The food was good, the scares were great. We went their first year and this season was so much better! I can't wait to see what they do in 2019. Well done!!!!!!

  • complete garbage!!!

    Listen, my friend won tickets and asked me to go with her. the 20 minute walk back to the actual haunted houses in the rain was boring, not enough actors on the hike back. but then I was so fascinated by a dinosaur by the pool that I had no idea that a clown popped up right in our faces. I was like listen linda, can I go play on the dinosaur? he didn't say anything just disappeared and blew his horn.so we get to house number 1 where there is this crazy lookin tweaked out of her mind nun. she looked like the nun from the movie the nun ya know what I'm sayin linda, uh huh listen. i was having a good time until some hilljack chuck Norris looking mfr called us cattle.. i said , "did you just call me fat!" he shocked us and stamped our hand, we took a good 20 minutes to get through the first house i don't want to give anything away. the actors and scenes were really good. what pissed us off is the walk after the corn maze to the woods. no warning , no flashlights just mud sinking in quick sand.. ya'll need to do something about that okay. listen! the mime at the funhouse was enteraining. i loved the human yo yo trick. uh huh oh my gawd we enjoyed the experience in the laser swamp too! talk about a party. but our shoes got destroyed! $113 shoes ruined.. fix the mud in the woods and maybe we will come back next year.

  • exciting and fun evening

    I went there last year and it was okay, but this year was set up more like a traditional haunted house, it really reminded me of a haunted hay ride once you were outside the cabin into the corn and headed toward the woods. the actors were fantastic and very scary. My favorite scare was a clown in the woods who got me probably 3 times to the point I fell down in the mud. I'm a big guy and these vicious ghouls had me crying like a school girl. it was so good I had to go through again. the entire cast chased me out of the swamp and out of the park!I hate chainesaws and clowns with bright lights!

  • best haunt I've experianced in my life

    this is a must not miss attraction for their next seasonI wish they were open now I really wanted to go againbut I was working for spirt Halloween and could not get the time off of work. i thought the ticket price was a little pricy at first but after I jumped not 5 minutes after getting down to the bridge before even entering the first house I got to say I was petrified and shaking with goosebumps by the time I reached the line for the 1st house, the cabin of carnage.. there I was greeted by a excorsist nun who was very convincing,she had me ready to pee my pants.Next we were greeted by i want to say a redneck car salesman. he talked a lot and kept talking about ears of corn trading them for ours and how muddy our nice new pearly white shoes were going to get ruined in the woods. and something about carpets and broken glass and not burning to death he also kept trying to tell me to go to the gift shop to get a new pair of underwear because many people had previously soiled themselves already tonight. at this point I was ready to puke. he also kept scraping his shovel almost as if he were sharpening it to cut off my ear!my friends wound up going through the house I chickened out, someone started playing sponge bob off their phone their staff kept trying to convince me to go through but I wound up meeting my friends in the same line about an hour and 20 minutes later and we left so we weren't late for curfew.on the way home I asked them what took them so long to get back and they said they got lost in the pallet maze that had a bunch of strobe lights in it for 35 minutesI can't wait for next year, I am working all winter and all 8 months of 2019 to build up my courage to go through the entire experience. i give this haunt a 5 out of 5.

  • Enjoyed the outdoor scares

    I think Fall Fear Fest could satisfy most scare lovers. It has one of the best outdoor scare settings in Ohio. Deads end haunt scared the crap out of me. Trail of terrors also had some scares that virtually startled me to the core. But my favourite one was Killaways freak show for obvious reasons. I was with my friends, and we all enjoyed the scares. The food and beer was awesome too. I would love to come again with my wife.

  • Had a frightful night

    Had a frightful night last week going through the cabin of carnage, trail of terrors, dead end haunts and killaways freakshow at the Fall Fear Fest. It was scary to say the least. Completely located inside a thickly wooded campground, it gives you the chill as you start your trek. Best way to spend an evening if you are a Halloween junky. The forest is filled with mysterious creatures and zombies who are out to get you. The actors did a wonderful job and you start to hate them for their determination to scare us. Greatly executed and enjoyable.

  • Email Verified Killaways freak show will freak you out

    Went with my family. Of the lot, the trail of terrors had the best nerve wracking scares and props. It was also my favourite for its scare factor. Deads end haunt was also quite unsettling. The women in the family screamed the most in here. Killaways freak show will freak you out. You have no way out. But looking back, it was great fun and we all enjoyed it. The actors’ makeup in general was top-notch. The initial trek through the dark woods was great fun. Entry fee was reasonable. Check it out.

  • Unique and mysterious

    This is beyond your wildest dream and you will know it as soon as you get here. The place is quite mesmerizing and suits the palate of anyone wishing to have a little adventure outdoors. This thickly wooded former campground is now filled with monsters and zombies. You have four attractions in one each very unique and mysterious. The best part is you experience it first hand and you get the most thrill out of it. Wonderful place to spend an evening and you really want to visit this again with my family next fall.

  • Night fright trail of terror is full of scares

    It was a great concept and I and GF had lots of fun. Fall Fear Fest takes the scares in the outdoor to new heights altogether. I never thought somebody could scare the crap out of you in an open space. Those outdoor scare zones had my GF screaming and she was clinging to me all the time. The night fright trail of terror takes you through the thick woods in the dark and scares came in plenty. The creepy actors were freaking scary. Deads end haunt and Trail of terrors would creep you out in multiple ways. The food and drinks was awesome and it provided a welcome break from the terrors we experienced. Ticket prices were reasonable I thought. I will come again for sure.

    Really loved this fun trail! The lighting in the woods is really effective at setting the mood ! My group loved the corn maze area and the clown section! Actors were great and very creepy! The beer was great as well ! Whoever they have playing Jason needs to be congratulated on how scary he was! I would not miss this cool haunt this year! 2018

  • Email Verified Trippy Trail of Terror

    Trying to walk their trail with my beer was ridiculous. There were a bazillion fog machines and strobes disorienting me on the trail that took like a half hour to walk. The woods were spooky and the music was fun. The kids enjoyed shooting Zombies, riding Go carts, and getting candy from the Goblins. I almost forgot to mention that they let us picnic there.

  • Best Ever Scary Evening

    Always looking for special and unusual things to do with my children and I found the Fall Fear Fest at Pioneer Waterland to be lots of fuin. I sat and had a cold one while my kids walked through the haunts. I was entertained by the live band while I sat with a great sausage sandwich. Their 3 scare zones take almost a half hour each to go through... each one different from the next. The kids had a ball! The food prices were reasonable and the price to get in and parking was well worth the money (bought tickets online to save) compared to other Halloween events.Last one I went to in Madison was $20 and over in 15 minuts. I spent the whole evening at Fall Fear Fest.

  • Buy tickets on line

    They charge almost $5. More dollars a ticket if you buy at gate. No where did I see this. Then to do one of the haunts to get the most out of it it will cost another $3. For laser guns and it was short . Not worth the price unless you buy the tickets on line and don't get laser guns. The scarers were good.

  • Awesome venue!

    Great festival village-type area with live music and food vendors! The woods was really scary and the strobes and fog made it surreal. Very cool walking through the old campground. We briefly got lost in the corn maze lol! There's also go karts to ride as this is a huge water park venue (no water attractions in the fall) with lots of space and room to move around. Beautiful and out in the country. It's not that far so don't let the distance fool you.
