The multiple award-winning live action horror spectacular is back! 

WARNING! The Forest of Fear is NOT for children!

TUXEDO PARK, NY: Renaissance Entertainment Productions is proud to announce another terrifying season of The Forest of Fear — the Times Herald-Record Reader’s Choice Winner and one of SCAREFACTOR.COM’s Top 31 Must-See Haunts in America. The year’s ultimate frightmare features SEVEN completely re-imagineered attractions for one admission price!

The Forest of Fear will be open Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights, October 6 through 29, 2017.

Each attraction brings a unique flavor of fear:

  • Blind Panic — Don’t trust your eyes — this medical madhouse is a masterwork of misdirection and mayhem!
  • CarniEVIL of the Damned — The lucky ones are captured by psychotic clowns. The unlucky find them waiting under their
  • Craven Brothers Chainsaw Repair — If you can hear the telltale roar of the two-stroke engine and the high- pitched scream of ragged steel teeth racing around a blood-crusted bar… it’s already too late!
  • The Hot Zone — Somebody has been very careless with our Biosafety Level 4 contamination controls, but don’t worry! You’ll be fine, as long as you don’t eat anything… or touch anything… or inhale…
  • Mourningwood Cemetary — Welcome to our necropolis — a city of the dead where crypts rise like condos and ghosts don’t welcome strangers!
  • The Slaughterhouse — They say you should never see how the sausage is made — especially from inside the meat
  • Uncle Jimmy’s Place — This is where all the fun starts! Just remember — a Party at Uncle Jimmy’s is always BYOB: Bring Your Own Bodybag!

“Producing a world-class, live action horror event is unlike any other theatrical experience,” said Darlene Patrick, Creative Director of the Forest of Fear. “We are uniquely fortunate to have some of the most respected names in the industry designing, building and performing with us.” Members of the Forest of Fear creative team teach a wide range of Haunt skills at nationally-renowned industry events including HAUNTcon, the National Haunter’s Convention, TransWorld’s Halloween and Attractions Show (the Haunt Attraction National Tradeshow), and the Midwest Haunter’s Convention.

“The Forest of Fear is the best kept secret in the Tri-State area. Live actors drag you kicking and screaming into their world of terror. One of the best Haunt experiences we have had in many years. When they say not for kids under 12, they mean it. Worth the trip, worth the wait.” – Casey Brown Haunt Reviews

My friends and I had so much fun exploring your haunt last night. I’m a fellow monster too at … and everything was beyond my expectations. All the attraction designs were beyond greatness so much detail paid off. I was honored and had tons of fun interacting with the whole monster cast and they all deserve the highest/scariest monster award on earth.

Will Brimstone Kucmierowski reviewed The Forest Of Fear — 5 star
The Forest of Fear never ceases to entertain… this haunt elicits a roller coaster ride of emotions ranging from fun to fear to sheer terror! You immediately get sucked in by the authentic look and feel of each individual room and set; some of the areas within the house itself could have been pulled straight out of the best blockbuster horror films. As far as talent is concerned – Uncle Jimmy is literally the multi-talented, standout character that every fright wishes they had in their cast! Tons of fun and a must in terms of Haunted Destinations during the Halloween season. Will continue to return annually as this event gets better every time.
