Hall of Terror
The Palm Coast Fire Department developed their very first version of a Halloween Haunted House/Hall of Terror at Deputy Chief Gerry Forte's home in Palm Coast. It was eventually moved to Fire Station #21 in 2002 (the station previously located at Belle Terre and Palm Coast Parkways). Firefighters retrofitted its design to fit along the narrow hallways and bay area at the Station. The event was originally created so that firefighter families could trick-or-treat together while their dads were on duty. It became so popular that the Hall was expanded to offer a safe holiday experience for all families in the community. The Hall of Terror keeps evolving and getting more professional each year. A new Station #21 was constructed and opened on Corporate Drive in 2008 and quickly became the new home for the Hall. The design became more elaborate, with multiple rooms, real actors, life-like props, professional makeup and special effects. The entire Fire Department community participates every year, volunteering to create a theme, write a script and construct the sets. The event brings huge crowds for several days over the Halloween holiday and over the last fourteen years, the Hall of Terror has become one of the City's highest attended special events and most certainly one of the Fire Department's proudest traditions.
