Tis’ the season for ghosts and ghouls, and no one loves this time of year more than I do!
For the last few years I’ve been getting my creep on at Fright Nights. As of the lead makeup artists’ for the premier haunted house attraction in South Florida, I get to help create the frightening characters that lurk in the houses. It’s always exciting to walk through the houses and see all of the characters in their terrifying element. Even I get spooked out!
This year Fright Nights is back with 4 NEW haunts and an expanded midway with 3 scare zones. The new haunts include: Memento Mori, Animal Farm, Beyond The Gates, and Meadow Lakes.
Fright Nights will take place at the South Florida Fairgrounds (9067 Southern Blvd, West Palm Beach, FL 33411) over four weekends: Oct. 9-10, Oct. 15-17, Oct. 22-24; and Oct. 30-31. The midway of carnival rides opens at 6 p.m. and four haunted houses will open at 7 p.m. Closing time on Thursdays is 11 p.m. and midnight on Fridays and Saturdays. The event also will feature a 45-minute Behind the Scenes tour on Thurs., Oct. 8, at 6 p.m.
Advance discount tickets are on sale now through Oct. 8 for $20 and covers admission, three of the four haunted houses and unlimited Midway rides. To buy tickets, go to www.myfrightnights.com. There’s some scary stuff behind the gates, so parental discretion is advised for those younger than 12 years old. For an additional $5, patrons may purchase the fourth haunt on either the Midway or at the gate. Gate prices increase by $5 for a total of $25 (or $30 with the additional haunted house).
