Fear Columbus is one of the largest and most elaborate haunted house productions in Ohio. Featuring multiple immersive attractions under one roof, photo ops, a retail store, endless scares, dozens of highly trained actors, elaborate costumes and makeup, a state of the art sound system, professionally designed lighting, movie quality set design and the best customer service possible! Fear Columbus is locally owned and operated. Come experience Columbus Ohio’s premier Halloween destination.
The story continues in 2022. Journey through the house of a cult that has set out to summon the worst entities imaginable. You will come face to face with these cult members and the demons they have brought to this world. The second half of the attraction takes you deep into the demon’s lair. The experience features expertly detailed sets, a state-of-the-art sound system, all-new lighting design, costumes, characters and so much more!
We have taken our most popular attraction to a whole new level. We have upgraded this experience in every way. 2022 is the final year of Aftermath before it is completely rebuilt and rethemed.
You will experience a post-apocalyptic city that is in total chaos. This attraction might even feel more like an action movie than a haunted house at some points. You will walk the city streets of Rapture filled with full-size storefronts, overturned cars, a giant asylum with patients let loose. The city is in complete anarchy, and we are dropping you right in the middle of it. Featuring all-new characters, a majorly updated sound and lighting system, more props and scenic details, and over double the scares of last year.
The Fear Gear Store is our full retail area at our facility featuring not only Fear Columbus merchandise but also plenty of snacks, drinks, and Halloween themed items from several partnered vendors. We also offer printed souvenir group photos that you will take when you enter the first attraction!
Your group will get a professional group photo in our themed photo op before entering the haunted house! You will have the option to purchase a printed souvenir photo or digital download at the Fear Gear Store! In addition, we have a few selfie stations around the facility where you can take your own photos.
Enjoy several different seasonal food and drink options. We have a dedicated food vendor on site featuring Halloween-themed menu items and even hot and cold apple cider. Looking for something sweet? Enjoy one of our custom Fear Columbus cheesecake desserts in the Fear Gear store.
