Fright by Night
Once the clock strikes 6 p.m. on Saturdays and 5 p.m. on Sundays, the night begins to take over and transforms the park. The midways become full of the living dead, ready to scare the pants off of anyone who dares to cross their path. Our lineup of exclusive and nail-baiting haunted houses will be sure to leave you screaming. If that's not enough 'scare' for you, check out our thrilling roller coasters, in the dark! Watch as the park transforms from "Thrills by Day" to "Fright by Night."
Need one more day of Fright Fest fun? Well we have it for you.
Join us on Thursday, October 30 for a bonus day of Fright Fest. The park will open at 6pm in full scare swing with creatures out roaming the park.
We know that you will be in the Halloween spirit just one day away from the big holiday and so will we our creepiest creatures. Check out one of frightastic shows or hit all the best coasters. Whatever you do, you won't be safe from the haunting!
