Many of you have probably heard of HalloWeekends or maybe even Seven Floors of Hell, but have you heard of The Fear Experience? If you haven't, it's about time you do because this Haunted House is run by one of our own Ignatius men, Max Simon.
Max has owned and operated the Fear Experience for 5 years since he and his cousin, Nick, started it in 2008. The two got their start after Good Morning America hosted a competition for the best Haunted House on private property. The grand prize was $25,000, so the two boys were determined to make the best haunted house. They began by building 10,000 linear feet of Haunted House in Nick's backyard, and they hired a professional camera crew to the shoot the video they would have to submit. However, the video was so well done that the hosts thought it was a commercial haunted attraction, s
o they disqualified them. Still, like the old adage says, \"One door closes and another one opens."
