Fright Nights PNE introduces a 6th house, FEAR

Dec 19 2017, 6:20 am

Western Canada’s most successful series of extreme Halloween entertainment is returning to Playland at the PNE from October 17 to October 31, 2012. This year, Fright Nights will debut a sixth haunted house, FEAR, created by legendary haunted attractions producer, Scarefactory. As a bonus to our readers we have 3 pairs of tickets to giveaway.

The brand new haunted house FEAR is 2,500 square-feet devoted to the top listed paranoias including: claustrophobia, arachnophobia, and acrophobia. FEAR will complement the current slate of five popular houses: Car-n-Evil, Hollywood Horrors, Asylum, Darkness and Haunted Mansion.

Last year, Fright Nights welcomed over 80,000 guests for an adult-themed Halloween experience. Fright Nights is the most successful adult-themed event in Western Canada and continues to add more programming and broaden its event footprint each year.

In addition to the six haunted houses, Fright Nights is bringing back two of its most popular entertainment groups. The Monsters of Schlock, the world’s craziest two-man comedy circus show returns to Fright Nights to perform an amazing stunt show influenced by the early days of vaudeville, the 3 Stooges and the carnivals of yore. Kinshira Fire Troupe will continue to amaze guests with its use of fire to incorporate symmetry, passion, dance and geometric design into one new and amazing show.
