Love is in The Scare - Valentines Haunted House

Get Notified Of Future Event Dates

Love is in the Scare will not be taking place in 2023 but will be returning bigger and better for 2024!

Our team is making some major upgrades and adding new themes for 2023 that will take us longer than past years to complete. We had to make the difficult decision to skip this year's Valentine's Day event to make sure we had enough time to complete all of these projects. Rest assured we will still be opening for Nightmare Combat this summer!

Valentine Haunted Houses

Love is Blind

Escape Total Darkness

There’s no feeling in the world like being in love. The sky seems bluer, the grass seems greener, and it feels like the universe is on your side. The future ahead with your new sweetheart by your side seems flawless. But is it?
Love can be powerful in many ways, including altering the universe around us. It can seem, at times, that we’ve thrown all our sense out the window in order to let love be the guiding light. So, this Valentine’s Day, let your heart be your guide as you navigate through total darkness with your sweetheart by your side. Because we’ve all heard the term “Love is Blind”, but do any of us actually know what that means?


Immersive Horror Walkthrough

Many ailments have plagued humans throughout history, but none are quite as powerful, perhaps, as loneliness. And arguably no one in the quiet town of Rapture is feeling the effects of this plague more deeply than the patients being housed in the city’s prominent asylum, WIMM.
Exhausted from being kept from the world in solitary confinement, the residents of WIMM have banned together and managed to break free from the walls of the asylum, and just in time for a day infamous for love, Valentine’s Day. Desperate to find companionship, the patients have taken over the city looking for the love and affection they so desperately crave, leaving a trail of destruction and broken hearts behind them.
