It’s Thrills by Day and Fright by Night
Fright Fest presented by SNICKERS® returns for 15 nights of terror on September 29. Fright Fest will run every Friday evening, Saturday and Sunday September 29 – October 29. During the day it’s fun for all ages with not-so-scary thrills for little ghouls and goblins but when the sun goes down, the freaks come out to play.
Fright by Night
As the sun starts to set the freaks are unleashed and the park is transformed into a frightful shadowland with terror around every corner and your worst nightmares coming to life. With themed scare zones, horrifying haunted attractions, and coasters in the dark there is something to terrify even the bravest souls.
Plan your night of frights in advance and visit our Fright Fest site.
