Scaremare: can Hell live up to the Hype?

There’s a piece in today’s Guardian about Scaremare, a Hallowe’en Haunted House run by evangelical Christians:

After being chased by clowns with chainsaws, grim reapers and ghostly ghouls, [visitors] are taken to special ‘preaching tents’ where they are encouraged to accept Jesus Christ into their lives. If they decline, they’re politely informed that when they die they will go straight to hell.

It’s all very cute, but honestly, Hell is a lot less like a prison riot and a lot more like a TED conference. The boxed lunches are really the most terrifying thing down here, I assure you.
