Fright Nights returns to Playland for another Halloween season

Sep 21 2017, 12:20 am

Fright Nights are returning to Playland this October, bringing hauntings, horror, and hair-raising rides to Vancouver for another year.

The Fright Nights season begins on Friday, October 6, and will culminate in one hell of a Halloween night celebration on October 31.

This year, there will be eight haunted houses for you to explore (if you dare):

  • Asylum – deranged doctors return from the dead
  • The Bloodshed – meet a family of mutated murderers
  • Darkness – within these walls lurk creatures born of pure evil
  • Fear – come face-to-face with your innermost nightmares
  • Haunted Mansion – meet the destructive descendants of the Van Horn family
  • Keepers Doll Factory – cloaked men harvest human limbs from sacrificial victims
  • Hollywood Horrors – hidden in the shadows lies a cannibalistic genius
  • Car-N-Evil – clowns.

And you’ll also be able to brave 20 rides – five more than last year:

  • Atmosfear
  • Break Dance
  • Bug Whirled
  • Corkscrew
  • Crazy Beach Party
  • Dizzy Drop
  • Enterprise
  • Hellevator
  • Gladiator
  • Hell’s Gate
  • Merry Go Round
  • Music Express
  • Pirate Ship
  • Rock-n-Cars
  • Scrambler
  • Tea Cups
  • The Beast
  • Wave Swinger
  • Westcoast Wheel
  • Wooden Roller Coaster

If you need a break from all that, you’ll be able to catch comedy act Monsters of Schlock performing their slapstick stunt show on most Friday Nights.

But as usual, there’ll be a bedtime boogyman, creepy clown, demented doctor, demon doll, and an actual demon roaming the grounds – so watch where you’re going!
