TUXEDO-As daylight shortens, emerging from the darkness is a "fear" unlike any other, says the people behind the twelfth annual Forest of Fear. Created by the producers of the New York Renaissance Faire, the Forest of Fear features five interactive horror attractions. New this season is a Fire-Spinning duo in the Cemetery of Lost Souls. The redesigned Slaughterhouse indoor walk-through haunted mansion, features 20 rooms and 6,000 square feet. The Circus of the Damned is a twisted sideshow with freakish clowns that terrify through a maze of fog and music, while the Palace of Pain horrifies with new devilish displays. The twelfth annual Forest of Fear is open nightfall every Friday until midnight; Saturday until 1 a.m; and Sunday until 11 p.m., through Oct. 31. Admission is $15. Ticket sales end one hour before closing. Advance ticket sales and reservations are not necessary. The Fear is located across from the grounds of the New York Renaissance Faire on Route 17A, Sterling Forest. The Forest of Fear is open rain or shine with free parking. Caution: The production is not recommended for children under eight years of age. For more information, call (845) 351-5174 or visit www.theforestoffear.com.
