Event Description

Each ticket grants the holder entrance into our limited-time haunted house.  Tickets are not required to experience the new Christmas lights and display walkthrough.  Ticket sales end at 9:00 each night, anybody who has purchased a ticket and is in line by 9:00PM will be able to go through the haunted house regardless of wait times.  

The Festival of Fears' Holiday Haunts is located in the

former JC Penny's at the Santa Rosa Mall in Fort Walton Beach, FL.

The haunted house is an intense experience that includes sights, sounds, smells and physical effects.   You may encounter loud noises, strobe lights, gruesome imagery, fog and artificial smells.  While our actors will not touch you, they will get extremely close.  While this haunted house is holiday themed, it is not any less intense and should be treated like a standard haunted house.  


Kids Tickets

All tickets for the haunted houses are the same price regardless of age.  Our haunted house is a very intense experience and is not recommended for those younger than 13.  Anyone younger than 13 who wishes to experience our haunted house must be accompanied by an adult, and needs their own ticket.  


All ticket sales are final.  Double check the event day and time when checking out to ensure there are no issues.  If you experience an issue with your tickets please message us on Facebook and a representative from our team will assist you.
