Surprise Surprise

Fans of fright are constantly searching for experiences that will elicit goosebumps, jolts, and screams. Chambers of Fear kicks off the scream season early to slake the horror-thirst of faithful thrillseekers on Saturday, September 13.

Starting out as a humble garage-based operation, the Chambers of Fear crew has 24 years of experience in bringing terrors to life. This year, the shadowy shindig is actually made up of three different haunted houses: Chambers of Fear, Darkness: Industrial Nightmare, and Scary Tales. One can expect state-of-the-art special effects and plenty of spooky figures, but you might not be able to anticipate how the fear-pumped atmosphere will lead your mind to play tricks on you.

Chambers of Fear stirs up the screams at 11340 West Bell Road in Surprise through Saturday, November 1. On September 13, the frightful festivities go from 7 p.m. to midnight, and tickets range from $23 to $33. For more info, visit or call 623-255-6896.

Fridays, Saturdays, 7 p.m.-midnight; Sundays, 7-10 p.m.; Thursdays, 7-10 p.m.; Tuesdays, Wednesdays, 7-10 p.m.; Mon., Oct. 27, 7-10 p.m. Starts: Sept. 13. Continues through Oct. 29, 2014
