Win Tickets to Fright Nights at Playland

Comments 80 by Rebecca Bollwitt

What’s scarier than an amusement park at night? How about one that’s purposely trying to spook you with terrifying rides, attractions, and mysterious creatures roaming the grounds? Fright Nights return to Playland October 10th to November 1st with a new haunted house added to its lineup of frightful features.

It is said that cloaked men lurk through the abandoned Keepers Doll Factory searching for human sacrifices to harvest limbs from. Those who enter the Factory might leave with a few less parts and a few extra cracks than they came in with. This experience is not one for the faint of heart. But a new house is not the only feature to be excited for – or fearful of.

This latest attraction will be open along with six other haunted houses and thirteen rides. The world’s craziest two-man comedy circus show, the Monsters of Schlock, also return to put on their amazing stunt show while the Kinshira Performance Troupe will be mesmerizing guests with their fiery performance.

Fright Nights at Playland Hours and Admission

Fright Nights will be open October 10th to November 1st and closed on traditionally slower nights: October 13th, 14th, 15th, 20th, 21st, and 27th. Hours are 7:00pm to 11:00pm, 12:00pm, or 1:00am depending on the day. A full calendar is available online.

Guests will have the option to purchase a Fast Pass, which offers the same access as a regular gate pass PLUS access to an expedited line for each Haunted House. Guests will also be able to save $3 purchasing tickets at participating 7-Eleven locations or online.

Due to the overwhelming demand, Fright Nights is putting a cap on the number of tickets sold per day. Tickets must be purchased for a specific date. Event nights have limited availability and may sell out. Admission includes unlimited access to all seven haunted houses, shows and 13 rides. (There is an additional charge for the Revelation.) Parking is not included.

Warning! Definitely not recommended for ages 12 and under, seniors 65+, people with sensitivity to strobe lighting, people with high blood pressure, heart conditions, pregnant women or scaredy cats. Absolutely no guest costumes allowed.

    The worst is when it just looks like an innocent wall….but then a person (who is dressed like the wall and completely camouflaged!) jumps out and scares the pants off you!! Startles me so much that I could be put in a haunted house with only walls and be convinced every single one was going to scare me!
