Playland’s Fright Nights featuring ghoulish characters, haunting music, and their classic amusement park rides are back again this year with a new theme: Car-n-Evil. If you’re like me and clowns scare you enough already, this will definitely get your heart pumping.

For 2010 Fright Nights will have the wooden coaster in the dark along with an expanded offering of 16 rides. The Haunted Mansion and Hollywood Horrors return with the History of Execution, Junkyard Symphony, the Asylum, and the Monsters of Schlock.

Perhaps the biggest addition this year is the Haunted Clown House that will have you meander a creepy enclosure wearing 3D goggles that will cause disorientation and send chills down your spine.

Fright Nights run October 15th until the 31st from 6:00pm. Tickets are available now and are discounted if you purchase in advance, online. The BC Lions will also host a special FanFest evening on October 18th.

I have two sets of tickets to give away but instead of doing the regular entry (comment or tweet) we’re going to mix things up a bit.

Keeping the Car-n-Evil theme in mind, you can enter to win tickets by adding a creepy clown photo to the Miss604 Group on Flickr or by posting the image on Twitter (including @Miss604 & #FrightNights in your update).

The image can be someone in a scary clown costume, a creepy clown around town (on posters, at Playland, etc.) or yourself in a costume or painted clown face. I’ll even accept photos of creepy clown drawings, although with slight coulrophobia I know it will be tough to go through all of these entries.

I will draw one early-bird winner tomorrow and another on October 21st at 12:00pm.

Update The first winner is misstaken4202 on Flickr who submitted this photo to the Miss604 Flickr Group.

Update The second winner is John D MacDonald for his photo on Flickr.
