Are you afraid of the dark? Well, you should be – because what lurks in the shadows during Fright Nights at Playland comes straight from your nightmares…

Experience the terror being stalked by a chainsaw-wielding maniac during Fright Nights at Playland on select nights from October 6 through 31. Each night features 8 haunted houses (with a new one: The Bloodshed, sounds inviting…), and live performances that’ll scare your socks off!

Fright Nights 2017 is open on weekends and select weekdays as we get closer to Halloween (and yes, it’s definitely open on Tuesday, October 31). Gates open at 7pm and the fun keeps going late into the night. General Gate Admission provides access to all 8 Haunted Houses, 20 rides and the Monsters of Schlock* sideshow.

Just in case you need some extra convincing… here’s a preview of some of the haunted house attractions you’ll be able to visit:

Car-N-Evil: It’s the year of clowns with the success of IT, so what better way to spend an evening than with a bunch of them – waiting to show you a party trick! In this house, you may experience intense feelings of panic, terror or dread… Enjoy! (more info)

Asylum: Check into this hospital and you may check out with less body parts than you arrived with… that is, if you can get out! In this asylum, deranged doctors return from the dead to wreak havoc on unsuspecting patients. (more info)

The Bloodshed: This family of mutated murderers and sadistic aberrations feed on your fear, and your insides. Their wholesome foundation is built on the blood and bones of their victims. Enter at your own risk… (more info)

Fear: What are you afraid of? Face your biggest phobias at FEAR! This house will bring you face-to-face with your innermost nightmares, the things you avoid during the day, and hope to not dream about at night. Good luck. (more info)
