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.

Review This Haunt
  • Email Verified Out of this world scary

    I am a huge fan of face the fear. I love what these guys do each year. This year the scares are out of this world. Aliens and clowns. What could be more scary? I also love the attention to detail. They put you in a haunted hotel, I heard Come Sail Away playing as I entered (a real alien song), there were cast members disappearing, sudden surprises, and so much to see and experience. The DVD was great as well. Getting ready for next year - don't ever miss Face the Fear

    Most people don't realize that the price of admission includes a DVD as well. This is all part of the fun and you get to take a piece of the experience home with you.

  • Best haunted house!

    We are haunted house fanatics and have been looking for something other than the Halloween Horror Nights scene. We've been to a lot in the central florida area and this was by far the best! Highly recommend! The entire experience was fantastic.

    We are thrilled and so honored you would join us and spend your time with us in Longwood. Join us again this next season.

  • Email Verified They are here

    Face the Fear has returned to the Longwood hotel that is truly haunted. I loved the treat they gave us by taking us upstairs and giving us a look inside of it. Of course the real thrills are found in the wickedly funny, cool, and scary story they are telling us. An alien invasion has occurred and been covered up. I know this because of the historical marker in the yard of the hotel (yes-they put up their own historical marker-loving the detail) Great fun. I was smiling and then screaming. This is a great family haunted attraction. My young teens had a great time as well. I love the push back against the demonic and appreciate they don't cheapen it with the slasher gore. Worth the wait, the time, and the trip. Planning on catching it again with some other friends. Check it out. The aliens are here.

    The haunted hotel in Longwood is the perfect place for this event. Once again in our new season we will be taking guests back inside the place they have heard about but now get to see for themselves!

  • Email Verified Scared me big time

    Aliens are a little freaky. So when I heard about an alien attack in Central Florida I had to check it out. I nearly wet my pants. I screamed, I laughed, and want to come see it again. Then if the aliens (and there were aliens everywhere) wasn't bad enough - then I saw a clown. Aliens and clowns in one night was enough to send me over the edge. I had a great time. The people that produce this show are some of the nicest and best out there. I also enjoyed watching the DVD that they gave to each guest. Some nice little horror films and some very practical advice on facing fears and scary moments.

  • Email Verified Out of this world

    I didn’t know what to expect but was not disappointed at all. Great atmosphere, great cast, great fun. This is a mix of old school haunted house and smart storytelling. Each guest becomes part of the narrative I so appreciate what these guys do. I like the charity that benefits. Still screaming from the maze. The aliens are real. They walk among us. I have seen them

  • Email Verified Loving it!

    I gotta tell you I love Face the Fear. I love the aliens, I love the scary actors, I love the food, I love the creepy hotel , I love the maze , and I love the story! The Face the Fear crew take the science of scaring people to another level. They drop their guests into a scary world with a great gun story. They don’t cheapen it with slash and hack, but drive you through an exciting expert I also love the DVD you get as a guest. So worth the wait and cost, will go back next weekend and next year. I love it and can’t wait to see it again (I do miss the clowns)

  • So much fun we came back the weekend after!

    The whole thing was scary and fun! A great thing for the whole family if you can handle being terrified. The maze was incredibly disorienting. It was such a blast. I was invited my my friend’s family. I loved it so much I took my family the next weekend.

  • Scared of clowns

    This is good old Halloween fun. The story designers of this Fear house take a good background story and make it scary and fun. No blood or gore fest - just an old school good time. Great family environment and creative beyond description. As you are planning your fall events, make this a must visit. We did and will be back.

  • I'm Just Saying Clowns Make Me FREAK!

    Absolutely over the top insanity! Face the Fear has let the clowns out and nothing will ever be the same. The international clown university is a training school for clowns that has gone horribly wrong. The weird creep you out backstory of the train wreck, the clowns establishing a new life, and the mystery of the clown capers (never solved) were enough to get me scared. But then I got inside the house and it was well - terrifyingly fun. My entire party was screaming, the clowns had a blast scaring us and did a great job at it too. I absolutely loved it and the fun house at the end was a never ending series of twists and turns (and I should mention there were clowns inside!) All in all a great experience, a great haunted attraction, and tons of fun. We will return. Get there early to beat the lines, you will have to wait. The reason I think they often get sold out is because they allow this to be a small group, small tour experience. That makes it scarier and is so much better than the long lines of people that stream through these kind of things. Thanks for not compromising the experience because I am sure there are some that will complain because they have to wait. My wait was well worth it.

  • Crazy Clowns!

    Face the Fear has rocked it with the International Clown University! It was crazy and scary. This is the way that haunted houses are supposed to be. Fun, Frightening, and Full of surprises. This one did not disappoint. I thought the story was great. I got as chance to read the backstory while I waited eating a funnel cake. The wait was reasonable for this type of event (1 hour) I am sure they sold out because people kept coming to go in. Once inside, it was dark, spooky, and the clowns made it real. I was terrified and thoroughly entertained. The DVD they gave us had a spooky little movie on it as well, so there was great fun and take home swag. It was a great end to our weekend. Get ready to have your fear of clowns brought back to life again. ICU is the place for you.

  • Clowns are Crazy

    I wasn't real sure if I wanted to go - the title about creeped me out. However, what I always love about face the fear is that these guys have a good time and let their guests have a good time. I was scared. The clowns were everywhere. Birthday clowns, rodeo clowns, historical clowns, and circus clowns were scary fun. The back story this year was less complicated than the previous year, I liked that as well. It made sense, allowed me to suspend belief, and then scared me with no cheap blood and gory thrills, instead, real fear. The DVD and the clown magnet were a nice gift when I was done. Great value, great fun, great time, and lots of screaming. Headed back next weekend.
