VANCOUVER’S FAVOURITE HALLOWEEN EVENT RETURNS WITH LIVE
SHOWS, HAUNTED HOUSES AND THRILLING RIDES
Fright Nights runs from October 5th to October 31st on select nights
Vancouver, B.C. – Scaredy-cats beware! Western Canada’s most highly anticipated Halloween event, Fright Nights at Playland, is back this autumn on select nights from October 5th to October 31st. It’s where murderous ghouls, clowns, mysterious creatures and things that go bump in the night come to life. Fright Nights features 20 blood-chilling rides, gripping live shows, eight haunted houses and much more!
Bloodshed, the newest haunted house introduced in 2017, is set to welcome only the bravest of souls. The dilapidated Bloodshed cabin is home to a family of ruthless mutant murders. For those seeking a paranormal experience, the Haunted Mansion promises thrills and chills not for the faint-of-heart, while the 3D experience of Car-n-Evil will leave guests with all the requisite symptoms of panic, terror and dread.
Not enough for you? Visit the Keepers Doll Factory, which features a creepy line-up of cloaked giants covered in scars, porcelain doll faces and missing appendages. Watch out, because they roam the halls in search of human sacrifices from which they can harvest limbs.
In addition to the houses, these Playland rides are guaranteed to provide a terrifying experience: The Beast, the Wooden Roller Coaster, the Hellevator and AtmosFEAR, as well as a selection of other hair-raising rides.
In search of a classic freak show to shake your belief in common sense? Guinness World Record holders and returning favourites, the stapled, sliced, slapped and smashed Monsters of Schlock will return from October 11th to 31st to perform some of the most incredible and outrageous physical stunts ever seen.
