Fright Fest Thrills by Day

 Thrills by Day For the Entire Family To Enjoy!

Feast your eyes on the spookiest and most thrilling Halloween event of the year at Fright Fest, weekends September 29 - October 28 & Monday, October 8 at The Great Escape.


NEW! Fester’s Fun-A-Rama Magic Show – Sit back and relax while you watch this comedy magic show, featuring everyone's favorite spooky kooky Uncle Fester. But don’t get too comfortable, as this maniacal magic show requires plenty of audience participation. Fester is also assisted throughout the show by his good friend Thing, the bodiless hand. Thing pops up in the most unusual places to provide Fester with a helping hand in his magic.

Monster Mash – Get ready to meet all of your favorite kid-friendly Halloween monsters! Dracula, Frank N' Stein, Jack the Werewolf and more will lead the way while you get your ghoulish groove on to the classic Halloween hits that you know and love. Be sure to stick around after the show for fun photo opportunities with the makers of Halloween.

Scream Contest – We hear them every day and we know they're out there! Kids 12 and under can put those pipes to the test by competing to see who will be crowned this year’s sultan of screams. We’re looking for the best ear piercing scream for a chance to win awesome prizes. This contest is available for all kids 12 years old and under, at the Jolly Tree Theater. 

Costume Contest – Little monsters can strut their stuff & show off their cool costumes for the chance to win great prizes daily. The costume contest is open to all kids 12 and under at 3 p.m. Saturday & Sunday on the Jolly Tree Theater. The costume contest immediately follows the Scream Contest and is free to all guests, 12 and under.

Trick or Treat Trail – Kids 12 and under are invited to visit the Old Woman’s Shoe to receive their Trick-or-Treat bag and start the hunt for Halloween treats through the little houses in Buckaroo Junction.
