Hunger for a scary Halloween quest? Head to Lake Erie Fear Fest. Put your last nerves to the test.
When the sunset starts to get dusky, grab a friend who's big and husky and head over to Sandusky.
A snorting dragon gives you a rise. Five haunted houses in one is a prize. Hope this isn't your demise.
Plunge into darkness, pitch black. Hear a sudden whack! It's too late to turn back. Lost your pack?
Hope you're not scared of the dark. Don't stand there scared as a lark. Someone circles like a shark.
They're waiting to scare you. You've lost all view. Where's your crew? There's a spine chilling, “boo!”
You can't help but squeal. Tell yourself it's not real. Lights are surreal. A clown jumps out with zeal.
Nearly wet your pants. An insane person mumbles and rants. Are these some mental ward transplants?
They know your name. Is that a doctor with bodies to maim? There's a hall of body bags all the same.
Fear asphyxiation? Walls close in and squeeze into obliviation. Passing out would be humiliation.
Take a breath and try to breathe. Watch a demon baby teethe. Around you, crazy people seethe.
“You're gunna die tonight.” The threat gives you a fright. You hear, but there's nobody in sight.
Where did that voice come from? Wish to numb yourself with rum. What's in that 55-gallon drum?
Something oozing from it looks toxic. You want something ataraxic. Feet fail like you're ataxic.
Try to run. Hit a dead end and done. A creepy voice calls out, “wrong way, hun.” Direction's spun.
Step into a glowing tunnel. Spin through, suck down the funnel. Get spit out like a fish into a runnel.
Turn that frown upside down. Hope you're not afraid of a psycho clown. Get chased through town.
Convince yourself you have the balls to traipse through broken dolls while feeling along the walls.
Immerse yourself in fog. There's no way to jog. Instead, feet slog. Crave a swig of grog. Sink in bog.
Surrounded by metal fences, you've heightened your defenses. You're losing control of your senses.
Which way is out? Jump when you hear a shout. This is scary, no doubt. Lost your friend that's stout?
You had hold of his hand. Jump and let go unplanned. There's a cold streak from your sweat gland.
Turn to see if he is behind, but there's another crazy out of his mind. You'd run, but you're blind.
Slowly feel your way. Oh, another dead end, eh? Overhead, there's a gooey spray. All is foggy grey.
Feel your way to the door. Friend got out before. Ready for more? There's another realm to explore.
Clear out of the foggy haze. Enter another pitch black maze. You can't see, so feel walls for the ways.
Your name is being called. They seem so eagerly enthralled, yet you feel unnerved and appalled.
You don't know what's lurking around you. Pray for the maze to be through. When done, sigh, whew!
There's a massive troll outside. There's someone in his belly he's trying to hide. Quick, get inside!
Yet another haunted house. Try to sneak quietly like a mouse. This one is creepier than some louse.
Try to keep your composed poise, but in the woods you hear a scary noise. Run from killer boys.
Think you erred by coming to Fear Fest to get scared? Nope. No other haunted houses compared.
If it gets to be too much and your friends complain of your death grip clutch, go rollerskating and such.
The Ghostly Manor is next door, and it has glow golf and more. Busta move on the roller rink floor.
If you want to get scared more than Cedar Point, head over to this joint. The scares won't disappoint.
