This year Face the Fear returns to one of the most "haunted" locations in Florida - The Historic Longwood Village Inn. This old hotel is the stuff of legend and one of "those" places that everyone fears...

The year is 1993. A mild breeze of fall wafted through the evening sky blowing through the historic district of Longwood, Florida. Most residents and visitors in Seminole County never expected the bizarre series of events which were about to take place.

It started innocently enough. A 911 call to local police reported an unexplained series of lights that had “seemed to circle the downtown area” of this old Florida town. This single emergency call was followed by a series of rapid calls and reports that began to describe glowing discs, unexplainable lights streaking across the clear night sky, and then a wave of calls describing what sounded like an explosion behind the Historic Longwood Village Inn.

Local law enforcement responded but before they could arrive, a special team of rapid responders representing the Federal Investigation Bureau (FIB) were already on site and started an active investigation.

Why were federal agents seizing the investigation of a crash behind the historic hotel?
How did federal agents manage to arrive so quickly before local law enforcement could be on the scene?
What did the federal investigation discover?

In the aftermath of the event each of the residents who placed emergency calls were visited by men dressed in black from FIB, who listened to their reports, and promised to keep them informed as to what the investigation discovered. Although each resident remembers the arrival of these agents, their recollection of the actual interviews is sketchy at best, most seem to have gaps of memory about the interview process.

Rumors were rampant that an alien spacecraft had crashed in Longwood, these rumors gave credibility to the numerous reports of unidentified flying objects seen over the city that fateful night. Many stories emerged from that mysterious night. One witness claims to have seen federal agents rescue some type of alien life form from the crashed space vehicle and move it into the interior of the Historic Longwood Village Inn. This report was never substantiated.

If there was a crash, the remains of the wrecked and damaged spacecraft were removed prior to federal investigators allowing the local law enforcement to move on site. The conclusion and official reports simply stated that an errant weather balloon had crashed after tracking was lost from Patrick Air Force Base on the coast of Florida. The lights in the sky, the unidentified object, and the arrival of the investigators all converged over historic Longwood. The case was officially closed.

This past year, it was discovered that there was a report entitled AOL – Aliens Over Longwood, that had been created by the FIB. A single copy of this report was obtained by a former investigator. Although the FIB vehemently denies this claim, the investigator and the AOL report is rumored to have disappeared, and according to some local residents, the investigator has returned to Longwood to finally conclude the incomplete investigation from 1993.

The site of the reported crash is now marked with an historical marker celebrating the 25th anniversary of the event. And through a special arrangement with the Historic Institute of Suspicious Incidents (HISI) – the interior of the historic hotel will be opened for five nights to allow guests to see where it is believed that investigators reportedly took the aliens.

Perhaps you are ready to discover what REALLY happened in Longwood that night - but be warned, to do so you must "Face the Fear..." Email Haunt Owner
This event is a small group event... in other words, there is no cattle call line that you will move along with as you experience Face the Fear. You will be in a small group, the scares are intense and fun. You will feel isolated and each experience is frightening and unique.

As a result, the event does have a limited number of guests that can go through each evening. Make plans now to visit and don't miss out on joining us for Face the Fear 2018.

Review This Haunt
  • Email Verified Best Halloween Experience Ever

    This was by far the most fun I’ve ever had at a haunted house. It was amazing. The people were friendly and kind and the clowns were around every corner. The fact that it’s so personalized to your group and they don’t just try to push you through is so great. The take time and care with every group to make sure the customers adds satisfied with their experience. The makeup and masks were very realistic and horrifying. I can’t remember a time that I wasn’t screaming. It was so much fun that it was scary. Definitely worth the money. Going to make this a yearly Halloween tradition for sure. Thank you Face The Fear!!

    What can I tell you? Loved it! I’m scared of clowns . I screamed , I laughed , and had the best time I can imagine getting scared . Highly recommend this haunt , too much fun. Also loved the DVD you get as an exit prize. How to deal with fear in the world today is very timely. This is a experience not to be missed

  • You are kidding me, right?!

    Clowns, clowns, and more clowns. If you aren't afraid of clowns you should be. Face The Fear has taken your scariest dream and made it real. I was totally surrounded by clowns of every kind. The perfect blend of effects, dark places, a creepy funhouse that you can't escape, and did I say anything about CLOWNS! Loved it, the wait was longer than I wished but the people who run it were great, they entertained us, the food was good, and I can't wait to see what they do next year. Thank you Face the Fear!

  • Meticulous detail fun for all ages

    This wasan awesome experience well worth the admosdion. My 12 year old was scared and I am an Army Veteran with a few combat tours under my belt and there were a few moments that gave me a startke. The actors truly gave it their all. Props to tbe historical society ladies for interacting while we were in line and setting the stage for what was yet to come. I will return with my family next year. We brought a group of young boys and we even left with candy!

  • High energy scares and great fun

    I am amazed at the unique experience my family had at Face the Fear. it was fun, a great show, a great story (that started while we waited comfortably and informally to go inside). Once we got inside, the building was great, it was nice to see inside the haunted hotel, and the scares were fun and creepy. Be warned. If you want a cut them up, blood and gore, and easy nasty gross out event. This is not your event. But this is a smart, exciting, and well told scary event. The true test for us is that we talked about what we had seen, heard, liked, and what made us scream all the way home. And that means it was a fantastic event.

  • Not enough scares

    It was a creative idea and theme, but there was too much talking to develop the story and not enough scares. They talk to you outside for the hour or so wait. Then they prep you on the way up to the entrance. Then there's a dialogue right inside the door. I think that one was way too long. Then your tour guide talks to you for another few minutes before you even go upstairs for the tour. They lost my attention at that point. The room with the lady at the desk seemed a bit useless. I will say that you didnt really know what to expect from each room you went to so that was good. Overall, just not very fun this year.

  • Email Verified Horrible waste of time

    Waited an hour and half for nothing. Such a waste of time and space of what could have been a great experience. My neighbors garage based haunted house was by far a much scary experience. I wish I would have stayed and continued to watch texes chain saw massacre.

  • Longwood is haunted

    Getting amped up to visit the most haunted location in Florida. I can't believe they are letting the team from Face the Fear actually make a haunted building a haunted attraction. Year after year, Face the Fear has some of the smartest story telling you can find for these type of experiences. They do it so well and I have never been disappointed. This year the location is an added bonus. Can't wait to get scared and face my fears.

  • Dolls were creepy

    Went last year, enjoyed it with my son. This year went again with a few other dads/sons and everybody enjoyed the doll exhibit. Very creepy, but as a parent I like the 'no blood or gore' offering for my son. Great job by all involved.

  • Viral - Virus - Terrifying

    Visited this amazing scare fest and screamed my head off. Smart storyline, fantastic cast. Great effects and great attention to detail. The terrifying maze at the end where the digital infected stalked me was more than I can handle. So glad I took my family and can't wait to see what these twisted scare machines dream up next

  • Bigfoot

    This was something I never expected and so original. The production was amazing, I was really blown away by it; especially for a small scale local haunt. The actors were definitely the star of this haunt. I cant wait to see what they do next year. So excited.

  • Was ok.

    We went last year, It started out good with all kinds of things about big foot, then just died out, the walk in the woods was ok, we were trying to have fun and get involved but not much to see and they were just pushing us through even though we were the only ones there. May go again one day just to support Sanford.

  • We had a great time!

    Everyone from the second you enter the parking lot at this haunt is in character. Tons of work went into the event which I really appreciated. Great theming, detail, thought prep went into this haunt. All of the volunteers were great and the fact that it was a lengthy walk thru made the experience even better. This haunt is much better than some so called professional haunts ( Clay County ). This haunt was worth every bit of the $10 admission. You must check them out. Be sure to talk to the "tree huggers" picketing by the road! HAHAHA!

  • Lovin' It / Scared me!

    What can I say? I knew it wasn't real but when I saw the protesters I found myself swallowed up in this incredible world of Bigfoot Hunting where as I expected things went wrong. As I walked out into the very dark woods I knew what to expect, but it was so much better. I love the details they included. I love the actors. I love the fact that I was scared and surprised. I love the fact that I was not insulted by some random screamfest but instead was a part of some great story tellers telling a fun, spooky, and scary story.

  • Can't Wait

    This group does an amazing job in terrorizing people each year in a fun and safe way. The bigfoot live experience is going to be incredible. I have been watching as the construction of this event has taken place in Seminole County and can't wait to get inside to check it out. This scare team does the best, the very best event in Central Florida each year and this year promises to be no exception. I am ready to Face my Fears and it might look like BIGFOOT this year
