This year Face the Fear returns to 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...

The year is 1993. A mild breeze of fall wafted through the evening sky blowing through the historic district of Longwood, Florida. Most residents and visitors in Seminole County never expected the bizarre series of events which were about to take place.

It started innocently enough. A 911 call to local police reported an unexplained series of lights that had “seemed to circle the downtown area” of this old Florida town. This single emergency call was followed by a series of rapid calls and reports that began to describe glowing discs, unexplainable lights streaking across the clear night sky, and then a wave of calls describing what sounded like an explosion behind the Historic Longwood Village Inn.

Local law enforcement responded but before they could arrive, a special team of rapid responders representing the Federal Investigation Bureau (FIB) were already on site and started an active investigation.

Why were federal agents seizing the investigation of a crash behind the historic hotel?
How did federal agents manage to arrive so quickly before local law enforcement could be on the scene?
What did the federal investigation discover?

In the aftermath of the event each of the residents who placed emergency calls were visited by men dressed in black from FIB, who listened to their reports, and promised to keep them informed as to what the investigation discovered. Although each resident remembers the arrival of these agents, their recollection of the actual interviews is sketchy at best, most seem to have gaps of memory about the interview process.

Rumors were rampant that an alien spacecraft had crashed in Longwood, these rumors gave credibility to the numerous reports of unidentified flying objects seen over the city that fateful night. Many stories emerged from that mysterious night. One witness claims to have seen federal agents rescue some type of alien life form from the crashed space vehicle and move it into the interior of the Historic Longwood Village Inn. This report was never substantiated.

If there was a crash, the remains of the wrecked and damaged spacecraft were removed prior to federal investigators allowing the local law enforcement to move on site. The conclusion and official reports simply stated that an errant weather balloon had crashed after tracking was lost from Patrick Air Force Base on the coast of Florida. The lights in the sky, the unidentified object, and the arrival of the investigators all converged over historic Longwood. The case was officially closed.

This past year, it was discovered that there was a report entitled AOL – Aliens Over Longwood, that had been created by the FIB. A single copy of this report was obtained by a former investigator. Although the FIB vehemently denies this claim, the investigator and the AOL report is rumored to have disappeared, and according to some local residents, the investigator has returned to Longwood to finally conclude the incomplete investigation from 1993.

The site of the reported crash is now marked with an historical marker celebrating the 25th anniversary of the event. And through a special arrangement with the Historic Institute of Suspicious Incidents (HISI) – the interior of the historic hotel will be opened for five nights to allow guests to see where it is believed that investigators reportedly took the aliens.

Perhaps you are ready to discover what REALLY happened in Longwood that night - but be warned, to do so you must "Face the Fear..." Email Haunt Owner
This event is a small group event... in other words, there is no cattle call line that you will move along with as you experience Face the Fear. You will be in a small group, the scares are intense and fun. You will feel isolated and each experience is frightening and unique.

As a result, the event does have a limited number of guests that can go through each evening. Make plans now to visit and don't miss out on joining us for Face the Fear 2018.

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

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • They are back again!

    Just read the details - what is up with that? You have to know I have visited in the past and the Face the Fear clown crew was pretty scary. I can't imagine living through the scare house when the clowns are running the show.

    It is like no other hunted house I have ever visited. I love how they have a plot and you go in only with your group and no one else which makes it even more scary.

  • Scary Scary Scary

    This has got to be one of the best developed stories of any haunted attraction! Scares and chills and this time a real haunted hotel are the setting. You will love it. I also loved the DVD you get just for surviving the experience. So much better than the rest of the bunch of scares out there. It is a fun family time that will give you the creeps!

  • Face the Fear Rocks

    The Face the Fear event rocked. I love the old haunted hotel. It is creepy and has such a weird vibe. Love the actors, especially the ones that set up the story within the story. It all adds to the element of suspence and fear. It also gives this haunted attraction a level of quality that others do not match. The lines were long. I was told that the event sold out opening night when I was there. But I loved it and will be back next year. I am trying to go back and visit again for weekend two.
