Tips for Enjoying Fright Fest

To check park operating hours visit our online calendar, or call us at (413) 786-9300. Demons are standing by. 

There is no re-entry after 6:00 p.m. — even for Season Pass Holders — so plan accordingly.

Bring a jacket or sweatshirt for cool evenings. We wouldn’t want you to catch your death of cold! Store it in one of the lockers located next to Main Street Gifts, behind the skeleton playing the organ. 

Our park is a smoke-free facility. This is a safety measure — smoking attracts demons and werewolves, and you really don’t want to do that. Smoking is allowed in designated smoking areas only. You won’t be safe from demons and werewolves, but at least everyone else will.

If you get lost, we will eat you.

When arriving, note the location of the exits and other places that might be helpful when hiding from zombies, flying creatures and blood-sucking fiends. Look hard. One really good place to hide is the small dark shed behind the Coca-Cola cart closest to Guest Relations. Just close your eyes and come on in. It’s the safest place in the park! We promise.

Stop by Stroller Rental if you need a stroller, wheelchair, garlic or holy water.

Weapons are not allowed in the park so please leave your wooden stakes and silver bullets at home. It will be more fun for you if you are completely defenseless.

Review the park map. You may think you know where everything is, but you don’t. We rearranged everything since your last visit, just to make it more fun for you.

Pick up a show schedule at the turnstiles or any retail store. Not the small dark shed behind the Coca-Cola cart closest to Guest Relations.

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.

Respect your loved ones: make all of your final arrangements in advance.

To save time, eat at non-traditional lunch and dinner hours.

Last year we surveyed a few of the survivors following their escape from the park. Before we ate them, they recommended that the most important thing to ensure that you have a fun, safe evening is to wear a hat. They also told us that screaming is your only defense. The louder you scream, the safer you’ll be.

Expect to hear lots and lots of screaming. If you hear any of it coming from the small dark shed behind the Coca-Cola cart closest to Guest Relations, don’t worry, they are fine... We think.

Frequently Asked Questions

Fright Fest

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.

What are your operating hours?

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

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