We’re Halfway There!

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 very limited opening is happening this weekend only, so grab your tickets for either May 19th or 20th and don’t miss your chance to go. We were there tonight and, let me tell you, it was an absolute blast! I love Halloween so much, and always plan my late September and October around my favorite haunts, but I’ve never thought to do it at another time of year. I’m thrilled that Fear Factory has thought about it. I had no idea that Fear Factory has been opening up for this halfway mark for the last eight years! I’ve been missing out! I know now to allot some time in my May calendar to celebrate with Fear Factory for now on. In fact, I think a new tradition has begun!

Even though what I’ve been thinking about is summer, I’m so glad to have taken a night to go and experience one of my favorite Halloween destinations off-season. It was a great night out with family and each and every one of us had such a fun time. I would dare say that tonight’s experience was even more intense than it’s been. We got to go through the belly of the factory in black out, which added to the fun factor. There were some unexpected elements and we each had plenty of scares. Always an absolutely amazing time, it did not disappoint!

So before the weekend gets away from you, make sure you get your tickets and head over tomorrow night and bring your friends and family with you. Make sure to make some time for some pre-scare entertainment, there is an incredible magician on the premises that had us all completely flabbergasted at his talents. You will be impressed!

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.
