FEARS GATE IS CHARGED AS ONE OF SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA'S TOP THRILL ATTRACTIONS FOR HALLOWEEN

The "F.E.A.R. Jury" reveals the 4 charges that convicted the Top Thrill Haunted Attraction

The "F.E.A.R Jury" is a panel of Haunted Attraction Aficionados. The "F.E.A.R Jury" judges an attraction for maximum intensity and thrills ensuring even the most daring Haunted Attraction fanatics to get their monies worth.

The "F.E.A.R. Jury" judges an attraction using their distinctive mantra, “If the F.E.A.R. fits, we must convict!”. To support their mantra, judgments are based upon the 4 "F.E.A.R." charges:

  • Charge 1
    Frightening: Does the attraction assault each of the five senses without regard to the victim. 
    VERDICT: GUILTY
  • Charge 2
    Edginess: Does the attraction create a lingering fear after the initial fright dies out. 
    VERDICT: GUILTY
  • Charge 3
    Appropriate: Is there a quality continuous connection of a specific theme through out the attraction. 
    VERDICT: GUILTY
  • Charge 4
    Realism: Is there sufficient evidence of realism with each frightening experience for a delay of disbelief.
    VERDICT: GUILTY

The "F.E.A.R. Jury" is a volunteer based panel that believes a Hung jury is not always a bad outcome. The judged attraction must be convicted on all charges or their name is never released to the public.

In the Case of the "F.E.A.R. Jury" vs. "Fears Gate", they were judged and found guilty of all "F.E.A.R." charges and convicted as one of Southern California"s Top Thrill Attractions for Halloween in 2010, 2011, 2012, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 & 2019 !
