Following its highly successful Fair Drive-Thru Experiences, the Pacific National Exhibition is proud to announce its October plans for Halloween fun at the PNE for fans of all ages.
Halloween Fun at the PNE
“Halloween is an incredibly important part of the year for everyone here at the PNE,” says President and CEO Shelley Frost, “and we’ve had a lot of questions and interest in our plans for 2020, given the situation with COVID-19. I’m really proud that our team has developed two very unique experiences for a wide range of guests. Although it is not possible to host our traditional Fright Nights, we have a new haunting experience and chilling décor for our young adult Fright Night fans and this year we will have a separate experience on-site aimed at children and parents who are limited in their trick-or-treat options due to the pandemic.”
Slayland at the PNE
Dates: October 9-11; October 16-18; October 22-25; October 29-31.
Times: 6:00pm to 10:00pm
Admission: Oct 9-25 $39.50 and Oct 29-31 $44.50 (admission includes complimentary mask, while quantities last, and all fees and taxes)
Although the Fright Nights haunted houses are not possible during COVID-19, Playland is thrilled to announce that as of October 9th the park will be transformed into Slayland – Night of a Thousand Screams. It will feature twenty rides, including The Beast, the iconic Wooden Roller Coaster, the Atmosfear and a walk-through outdoor haunted experience and chilling décor throughout the park. Slayland is the first time in the PNE Halloween event history that guests will be allowed to wear costumes. There will be themes for costumes each weekend, from retro to superheroes. While costumes are allowed, please note that face paint and costume masks are not allowed, and COVID-19 masks will continue to be required in all queues and while on attractions.
