Scaremare is sponsored by the Center for Youth Ministries at Liberty University, and uses a unique horror fun-house experience to confront people with the question of what happens after they die.

Made possible by hundreds of Liberty student, staff, and faculty volunteers, Scaremare takes visitors through dark woods and creepy trails, eventually entering the House of Death. At the end of the experience, visitors are presented with the life-changing message of Jesus Christ.


Scaremare has been freaking people out for more than 40 years.

Since 1972, more than 300,000 people from several states have made the trip through the House at Scaremare. Scaremare has been held at four different locations, including a mansion in Amherst County and an old hospital building in downtown Lynchburg. It presently operates at Carroll Ave. in Lynchburg, Va.

By the Numbers

  • 200+ volunteers operate the house
  • 26,000 people have accepted Christ at Scaremare over the past two decades
  • 4,500 attendance record for one night
