Tunnel of Love provides adventure, thrills, chills
Do you remember going to a carnival or theme park and riding the tunnel of love ride?
Since the early 1900s, The Tunnel of Love has been synonymous with romantic adventure, thrills and chills. The tour for couples would embark on a predominately dark passage which would be filled with wonderful and frightening surprises around every corner, only to be given a short, quiet reprieve which would allow the couples to relax, but only for a moment until the onslaught of scares were introduced once again.
These scenes offered a socially acceptable "excuse" for physical contact at a time when public affection or even holding hands was considered inappropriate.
The Sanctuary in Oklahoma City has a different take on that attraction the "Haunted Tunnel of Love," and it will take place Friday and Saturday, Feb. 9-10 from 8-11 p.m. The venue is located at 12101 N. I-35 Service Road, in Oklahoma City.
"The Tunnel of Love is a walk-through experience that is one-of-a-kind," Tino Pascuzzi, owner, said. "My wife, Cathleen and I own this venture and we have had a good response to the Tunnel of Love as well as other adventures that are in the same location. We started this business in 2013 and we have had 2-3,000 people go through the Tunnel of Love each year."
