Admission is $15; $5 extra for the Last Ride. For more information, call 316-942-FEAR or go to www.fearfestkansas.com.
2) House of Terrors, at 3053 N. Rock Road. Enjoy 23,000 square feet of screams, blood and so much gore they'll have you begging to get out. But getting out has its own special challenges.
