WHEN: February 9-10, 2018, 8:00 PM – 11:00 PM
Since the early 1900s, The Tunnel of Love has been synonymous with romantic adventure, thrills, and chills. The tour for couples would embark on a predominantly dark passage which would be filled with wonderful and frightening surprises around every corner only to be given a short, quiet reprieve which would allow the couples to relax, but only for a moment until the onslaught of scares were introduced once again.
These scenes offered a socially acceptable “excuse” for physical contact at a time when public affection or even holding hands was considered inappropriate. 100 years later, The Sanctuary has continued this tradition with a version of The Tunnel of Love “Lights Out” tour. You will be given an LED torch lamp to navigate through the attraction. The Sanctuary is a high quality, highly detailed Haunted Attraction with Hollywood Movie Style Set Design and State of the Art Special Effects.
