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.
