Win Passes to Fright Nights at Playland

Comments 94 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Take an amusement park that’s over 100 years old, add in a Halloween theme, host seven haunted houses and fifteen rides, add in a Halloween theme and you’ve got Fright Nights at Playland, Western Canada’s scariest Halloween event. Open select dates between October 9th and November 1st, tickets are now on sale online (and will be available at the gate) for this popular – and frightening – activity.


Fright Nights at Playland

For the first time ever, visitors will be able to ride Canada’s most extreme pendulum ride during the Halloween season, as The Beast makes its Fright Nights debut. With a terrifying pendulum arm, guests will be swung 120 degrees in either direction while sitting in seats that spin 360 degrees, reaching speeds of more than 90 km/hr and heights of over 125 feet.

Beloved haunted houses like Darkness and Keeper’s Doll Factory will leave you with nightmares for days, while debuting for the first time at Fright Nights is Radiant Heat Fire Troupe, whose spectacular fire shows will leave you breathless with amazement.

In addition, cringe worthy entertainment will return to Playland as the Monsters of Schlock return to put on an incredible old style freak show.

Dates, Times, Prices

Fright Nights will also remain open for November 1st, from 7:00pm to 12:00am (Gate $32, online $29).


Passes and Tickets

Guests will again be able to save $3 purchasing tickets at participating 7-Eleven locations or online. You also have the option of purchasing a Rapid Pass, which offers the same access as a regular gate pass PLUS access to an expedited line for each Haunted House and rides on The Beast, Wooden Roller Coaster, Music Express, Atmosfear and Hellevator.

Due to the overwhelming demand and to ensure a quality guest experience, 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.
