Halfway to Halloween!

Brace yourself, Salt Lake City! A week from today, you are going to have the opportunity to do something a little out of the ordinary. While we may think of October as the best time to go to our favorite haunted houses, Fear Factory would like to remind you that you are Halfway to Halloween! With the cold winter and spring we’ve had, it seems absolutely terrifying that we are halfway there, but any excuse I have to go and frolic through the concrete and iron labyrinth of the remains of a factory, you’d better believe I am super excited to do so!

This is a very limited opening, so grab your tickets for either May 19th or 20th and don’t miss your chance to go. I absolutely love Fear Factory and can’t wait for next weekend!

The Fear Factory, Salt Lake City’s only truly haunted attraction was recently named the #9 truly terrifying haunted attraction on BuzzFeed’s 2022 list of the 20 most terrifying haunts.

“We take great pride in creating a safe and entertaining haunt and it’s always nice to get positive feedback from the people that matter most to us, our fans,” said Rob Dunfield, Fear Factory Co-Founder and COO. “We’re honored to receive this recognition and look forward to many more years of scaring the daylights out of our fans and attendees from around the world.” 

In naming Fear Factory to its list of the top haunted attractions, BuzzFeed editors wrote:

“Requiring all participants to sign a waiver before entering the premises, Fear Factory has garnered national attention for its massive grounds (comprised of six buildings in total) and cast of over 100 performers. Taking place in the reportedly haunted Portland Cement Factory, Fear Factory also offers guests additional experiences beyond their typical admission, including the Rockstar package that includes an exclusive interactive show and the Touch of Fear add-on that grants permission for the monsters to touch you for an even more intimately frightening experience.”

This is the second time Fear Factory has been recognized by BuzzFeed. In 2016, Fear Factory was named one of BuzzFeed’s scariest haunted house attractions in the world by its community

2022 has been a banner year for the Fear Factory. Earlier this year, Fear Factory claimed awards from HauntWorld as one of the 13 scariest haunted houses in America and was named to the Haunted Attraction Association’s (HAA) list of top haunts

The Fear Factory is located at 666 West and 800 South in downtown Salt Lake City, Utah. For a complete list of the Fear Factory’s 2022 schedule, including monthly Ghost Tours or to buy tickets to the 2022 season visit, www.fearfactoryslc.com.

With awards ranking them as #3 in the world (buzzfeed.com), and top 10 in the US (USA Today & Travel Channel) Fear Factory has quickly grown to be one of Utah’s – and the world’s – favorite Halloween entertainment attractions. Its vastness requires a waiver to be signed prior to entry, and opens each fall, plus periodically throughout the year for special events. Home to over 11 documented historical deaths, featured in movies and films, boasts over 100 nightly live actors, and heavily awarded within the industry, it’s a great place to bring family, friends, coworkers and more for an evening of entertainment, thrills and fun. For more information visit www.fearfactoryslc.com.
