DL Fright Fest Tips
Tips for Enjoying Fright Fest

To check park operating hours, call us at 585-599-4641. Our staff of demons is dying to alert you of the extended operating schedule. Don’t hang up on them, they have caller id and will call you while you sleep. Or you can always check our online calendar.

If you insist on visiting on a date when the park is closed, we will have to insist that you stay as dinner.

Bring a jacket or sweatshirt for the cool evenings.  We wouldn’t want you to catch a cold and infect our monsters. 

Start your day at attractions farthest from the exits. Your best bet for a good time is to stay as far away from the exits as possible. Bad things happen at the exits. Good things happen in remote locations deep within the park.

Clowns smile right before they get you.  Spiders don’t.

Review the special Fright Fest park map and guide.  You may think you know where everything is, but you don’t.  We rearrange everything all the time, just to make it more fun for us.

If you get lost looking for haunted attractions, we will find and eat you.

There are plenty of places to get that one final selfie.  Our deadly photo bombers roam the park nightly.

No need to feed the monsters — they’ll eat you on the run.

Please enable the location tag for your Instagram photos….it helps the zombies find you faster.   Please turn Snapchat Ghost Mode off too.....they like to watch you.

Fright Fest Survivor pickup.  Zombies will be chasing survivors toward the exit at 11 p.m. on Friday and Saturdays, and 8 p.m. on Sundays.

 Brains must be surrendered upon exit.

DL Fright Fest FAQs
0

Fright Fest 

What are your operating hours?

Fright Fest hours are listed in the calendar above. You may also view our operating calendar.

What are the current ticket prices?

We are pleased to offer a variety of gruesome ticket packages. Specific pricing for Fright Fest tickets and season passes will be posted shortly. Check back soon!

Are there any rides at Fright Fest that won’t scare me?

No.

How many scary things happen during Fright Fest?

There is no way of knowing. Those who have tried to count were found in a corner, sobbing with fright.

I’m not afraid of Fright Fest. Is that okay?

Keep telling yourself that if it helps. The truth is something that will speak for itself.

Can I wear a costume, mask, or makeup?

No. While you may enjoy making fun of our ghosts, demons and zombies by dressing up like them, doing so is clearly insensitive to their feelings. They can’t help the way they look and you ought to be ashamed of yourself for even asking the question. Jokes aside — this is a safety issue. If you wear a costume or mask into the park our monsters will get confused and might accidentally start eating each other instead of you.

Are Zombies real?

That is the kind of question that is going to set you apart from the others and act as a magnet for everything you will wish you’d never met. Fortunately for you there are dozens of free roaming zombies at the park would be more than happy to answer your question.

Which ride is the least scary?

The ride to the park.

How long has Fright Fest been going on?

It’s like time; there was never a start. It has always been there. A better question is: when will it end?

Will my boyfriend or girlfriend be eaten?

It depends how full we are after we finish eating you.
