Fright Nights at Playland is set to unveil an all-new haunted house, raising the total number of houses onsite to eight, giving attendees, even more, ways to get scared, as “The Bloodshed” will make its Fright Nights debut on October 6th.
Home to a family of ruthless mutant backwoods yokels, The Bloodshed, a dilapidated summer cabin that no one would ever want to vacation in, promises to be the goriest Halloween scene yet with rooms that capture such nightmarish and grisly detail, returning fans may be shocked they still can be scared out of their wits. Even the most cynical and seasoned Halloween fans will be on their phobic guards when they encounter the newest haunted house.
“We’re promising some truly unique surprises at this year’s Fright Nights with The Bloodshed on site,” says themed attractions Manager, Erin Cameron. “The house, encompassing approximately 2,400 square feet, comes complete with corpses, torture devices and legions of gore.”
Additionally, at Fright Nights, Canada’s most extreme pendulum ride, The Beast, will be returning this Halloween, alongside favourites like Pirate Ship, Hell’s Gate and Atmosfear.
For those looking for a paranormal experience, Haunted Mansion is geared to terrify even the bravest souls, and guests can attempt to overcome their fear of clowns in Car-N-Evil haunted house and face their deepest terrors in Darkness. Favourite haunted houses, The Asylum, Fear, Hollywood Horrors, and Keepers Doll Factory are also back.
Not for the faint-of-heart, returning favourites and Guinness World Record holders Monsters of Schlock will be terrifying guests with three nightly shows from October 13 to 31. Guests can expect to be horrified with shows that feature meat hooks, and other cringe worthy entertainment. Playland’s favourite freak, Singe the Clown, is also back and up to his usual creepy antics. Featuring torture devices, rides and a park full of murderous ghouls, Fright Nights 2017 is bloodier and spookier than ever and is the perfect event for every Halloween lover.
Guests have the option to purchase a Rapid Pass, which offers the same access as a regular gate pass PLUS access to an expedited line for each Haunted House and The Beast, Wooden Roller Coaster, Atmosfear, and Hellevator. Guests will also be able to save $3 by purchasing tickets at participating 7-Eleven locations or online.
