Fright Nights Prepares For The Scare

The 16th annual Fright Nights, the largest haunted attraction in South Florida, returns to the South Florida Fairgrounds this month.

Organizers are dedicated to bringing its guests brand-new haunted attractions each year. In past years, they’ve concocted everything from flesh-eating zombies to twisted carnivals, haunted prisons, evil clowns, haunted hotels, ghostly graveyards, insane asylums, corn mazes, haunted hayrides, psychotic hillbillies and more. The event also includes scare zones, food, entertainment and midway carnival rides.

Fright Nights opens Friday, Oct. 6, and continues every Thursday, Friday and Saturday through Oct. 28. The dates are: Oct. 6, 7, 12, 13, 14, 19, 20, 21, 26, 27 and 28. The hours are: Thursdays from 6-11 p.m., and Fridays and Saturdays from 6 p.m. to midnight. The midway opens at 6 p.m., while the haunts open at 7 p.m.

Admission is $30, which includes 30 tickets valued at $1 each. Tickets can be used for rides and haunts. Each haunt requires seven tickets, and rides vary from one to three tickets. Tickets cannot be used for food. Parental discretion is advised for those younger than 12 years old.
