Ghouls, goblins and every nightmare imaginable are once again haunting Frontier City as a part of the Halloween season’s FrightFest.
At 11501 N. Interstate 35 Service Road, the theme park will be open to chill-seekers Friday through Sunday nights through Oct. 30 for the creepy festival. Admission prices remain the same as in-season tickets, which range from free for those age 3 or younger, to $24.99.
The truly gruesome and horrifying decorations and actors are tucked away in the Nightmare Haunted House, ready to scare unsuspecting victims. To get into the haunted house costs an extra $5.
“It is your worst nightmares come to life,” said Jo Ann Keirsey, Frontier City director of marketing. “There is room after room after room of some very scary things.”
For kids, who may not have the nerve to brave the Nightmare, the Booville Trick-or-Treat Trail is open from 6 to 8 p.m. every night during FrightFest.
Throughout, the park is decorated “with lots of hay bales and pumpkins and corn stalks and spider webbing,” Keirsey said. “I think that’s one of the reasons FrightFest is a favorite of everyone, because of the ambience and the theme that takes place to bring FrightFest to life.”
Frontier City is open from 6 to 11 p.m. Fridays, noon to 11 p.m.
Saturdays, and noon to 10 p.m. Sundays, unless there is inclement weather.
