Fright Nights at Playland 2012by
Vancouver’s favourite amusement park turns out the lights and turns up the horror as Fright Nights return to Playland this month.
Running from October 17th to 31st Fright Nights will have a new haunted house this year called “Fear” to go along with Car-n-Evil, Hollywood Horrors, Asylum, Darkness and the Haunted Mansion. Fear is a new 2,500 square foot house of paranoias including claustrophobia, arachnophobia, and acrophobia.
Along with the haunted houses, rides, and colourful characters lurking around the park you can enjoy catch a Monsters of Schlock comedy circus and Kinshira Fire Troupe.
