Episodes will be based on actual ghost stories, cryptozoology, and other fantastic events strongly associated with specific sites. In each show, a skeptic or "mark" has been chosen to embark on a journey that will challenge their cynicism when they arrive at "Destination Fear"!
With the help of a close friend or family member "accomplice" the "Destination Fear" team puts the 'mark' through a series of meticulously staged events to bring these tales to life. Finally, when the mark is scared out of their wits enough to doubt all their pre-conceptions and beliefs, they're told it's OK; their journey is over — they are now at "Destination Fear." Then we bring out the friend who set them up — and the two share their surprising reactions to the experience!
