Fear Factory opening in Batesville, IN | Events
BATESVILLE, IN (FOX19) - Halloween season is beginning in Batesville, IN with the opening of Fear Factory at the RomWeber Marketplace.
Fear factory opens on Friday, September 13 for six weekends of terror.
The factory, completely renovated and expanded to nearly 25, 000 sq. ft., will give visitors a whole new experience this year thanks in part to the generosity of over 20 Hill-Rom engineers, designers and volunteers who have completely made over every square foot.
Once home to the Batesville Coffin Company, Fear Factory now helps build awareness of drug prevention through its exhibits. Proceeds benefit Cierra’s Club which is a non-profit entity managed by the Batesville Community Education Fund and is used to provide drug free entertainment for our youth.
Cierra’s Club was founded after Cierra Adams died from a drug overdose on July 16, 2011; her 18th birthday. Our mission is to show the youth of our community how much fun can be had at drug free activities. Over 45 area youth and adults have volunteered to be characters in the haunted house which will run Sept 13th from 7 pm to 10 pm, Sunday, Sept 29 & Oct 13 at 1 pm to 3 pm for a lights on tour with other children activities for those who are afraid of what lurks in the dark, and Friday and Saturday Oct 4, 5, 18, 19, 25 & 26 from 7 pm to 10 pm. Special tours beginning at the stroke of Midnight on Friday Oct 4 & 18 will include the upper 2 floors of the factory.
Admission is $5.00 per person and the Midnight tour is $10.00 per person. The entrance is on Depot Street. Oldenburg Academy’s OASIS group will provide concessions in the Fright Bite
