Just to address your implied question about how to make fairy tales scary...

Have you read the real Grimm’s Tales? The original stories, unlike the watered down versions that are told to American children now, are truly harrowing. There are a lot of brutal deaths and starkly evil characters in them.

no, I have not personally read them, but I am familiar with some of the stories such as the little mermaid, cinderella, and snow white. but, I think most people also haven't read the stories in their entirety and that is why I am worried if we went along with this theme, we would not have characters portrayed in a way that is recognizably frightening.

You might want to check out Feary Tales at Kings Dominion. It had a sinister fairy tale theme similar to what you’re describing, and since it existed for about a decade up through 2017, there’s probably a lot more material available online. Based on the few available photos of Tormented Tales, Feary Tales even used a few of the same costumes, like the evil bunny.

@CastleOSullivan mentioned Dark Tower over in 2018 HOS. Here is a video of that by Chris Schwartz, along with Transylvania Express/Jack’s Nightmare Express and Curse of Pompeii.

So the earliest year of Howl-O-Scream I can remember, there was a house in the Killarney motion sim building themed to like Goblins and stuff. What house is that? That isn't Dark Tower is it?

You’re most likely thinking of the 2009 house Caverns of Darkness which took place in the Kilarney motion simulator was very dark and featured goblins and various other creatures.
