Every Halloween there's a scary haunted house in the Fort. What's cool about "Fear at Fort Adams State Park" is that 100% of the proceeds directly benefit The Fort Adams Trust, which goes towards restoration and maintenance of the historic fort. There are several spooky attractions that are sure to make you scream. The Tunnels of Terror are full of ghouls and monsters, and with the use of strobe lights, dense fog and sudden, loud and scary noises, it's not recommended for children. However, exploring the ruins of the Officers Quarters are relatively more low-key and un-guided. There's even a Halloween Carnival Midway that has lots of fun games.
