The 2019 Face the Fear once again takes place in 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...

In 2019 experience...
LOST
Longwood’s Olde Stolen Treasure

Our story begins….
History’s most famous pirate Blackbeard (real name: Edward Teach) and his 40-gun flagship, Queen Anne’s Revenge, prowled the West Indies and the Atlantic coast of North America, preying on ships heading back to Spain laden with gold, silver and other treasures from Mexico and South America.

In late 1718, a British naval force led by Lieutenant Robert Maynard succeeded in killing Blackbeard. Before his death, Blackbeard claimed to have hidden his massive treasure, but he never told anyone its location.

Treasure hunters have been searching for it ever since.

History you probably don’t know…
During the Seminole Wars in Florida - Army troops moved through Central Florida anticipating an assault, and wanted to ensure that civilian residents vacated the area. A young officer, reportedly named Steler, came across an old woman and a child living in a run-down shack in Longwood. The woman refused to leave the house, as she had grown up in it, and began telling Steler stories about the area. He wasn’t interested until the old woman mentioned treasure buried nearby. She referred to it as ye Olde Stolen Treasure.

According to the old woman, Blackbeard and his pirates had buried his famous lost treasure on a plot of land in Longwood, Florida. Blackbeard wanted to be the master of the sea - and his treasure was a collection of not only gold, coins, jewels, but also included creatures and nautical oddities. After the treasure was lowered into the hole, Blackbeard stabbed one of his crew and tossed the body into the hole. The pirates covered the pit, left with the intent to one day return. But they never did. The old woman insisted that the Longwood’s Olde Stolen Treasure was cursed by Blackbeard to prevent anyone from ever taking it from him.

Steler helped the old woman and the child out of the area, then returned with a friend named Pillfer to look for the treasure that same night As they dug, the tops of the trees began swaying as if in a high wind; the deeper the dug, the higher the wind rose, until the wind became too fierce to work in. Flashes of light began to appear, with greater frequency as the hole grew deeper. Finally there came a long flash, that made the night “bright as noon,” and Steler and Pillfer saw that they were not alone. The dark forms of a crew of pirates stood behind them; telling them all who touched the treasure would be cursed. The pirate promised that the power of Blackbeard himself would be unleashed if the treasure was ever disturbed. Steler and Pillfer dropped their tools and escaped promising never to tell anyone what had happened.

Of course that story is nothing but legend.
Recently a team of treasure hunters (2019) from the Treasure Allocation Group (TAG) discovered the location of the treasure in Longwood and secured permission to excavate and remove the findings under the authority of the United Reclamation of International Treasures (URIT)

Their findings, curse or no curse have now been put on display for a brief showing in Longwood. If you are interested in seeing this once in a lifetime collection of infamous pirate treasure then you are invited to join us at the Longwood Village Inn for Face the Fear 2019 – LOST – Longwood’s Olde Stolen Treasure…will be on display October 25th, 26th, and 27th for three nights only.

  • 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!!

  • Email Verified 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
