Today we're contiuning our look at Independent Haunts with Sinister Pointe in Fullerton, CA.
This is another event with a long standing history of being one of the best Haunts in Southern California and my first visit through the portal couldn't have been more amazing.

With past event names like Diner Dead, Bloody Mary, Condemned and Horror Hall, you kind of can get an idea what you can expect in "Fear The Mark".
Unlike other events you get to possibly experience four different "realms" of terror.
Each maze starts off the same, with an amazing host getting you ready for what lies inside.
Soon you will be sorted into your realm and receive your mark. From there you will venture into one of the four realms: Tormentum, Rebus, Infernal and Arcane.
Each one offers something truly unique and different while at the same time sharing the same space at different area's. The way it's laid out simply "works" and works well.
The talent in the maze is incredible from start to finish, it's no wonder so many people come back to "scare" at this event every year. It's a well oiled machine in every way.
This was our first realm, one where the monsters play tricks on you. Apparently our group wasn't very good at finding our way out more than once and we sure paid dearly for it.
This was the "fun" maze and if you only have time to go through 1 realm and you are a coaster enthusiast, we highly recommend this one. Yes you can have your realm "chosen" for you, but you can also request one. You'll know where to do that. We also each got separated in this realm and a friend of mine sent me through a very narrow pathway. I had to suck in my gut but it was awesome.
This one also had some "alone" moments involved and some more physical elements that some may want to avoid if you are unable to do crawling, but it was amazing.
Tormentum (thanks Stephanie for your thoughts on this realm):
This one was a bit more gory than some of the other realms (as the name might tell you) and some area's where you have to crawl under some barbed wire.
Overall we had a simply awesome time at Sinister Pointe and we can't wait to see what your twisted minds come up with for next year.
Thank you so much for inviting us out to your event, we couldn't have been more impressed with the overall professionalism of your staff and the passion of the talent inside the maze.
For more information on Sinister Pointe be sure to check out their website, and just like some other events, they have extended their run through November 12th. So don't worry if you can't get out there this weekend, you still have time to get your mark.
