Theme Parks Get Spooky with Halloween 2009 Transformations
This month, theme parks across the country will be sporting a much darker, and macabre appearance. The undead creatures of the night and villains from horror movies like Saw will invade your local park.
During weekends in the month of October, many parks around the country transform with Halloween-themed events like Six Flags’ popular Fright Fests. The level of theming varies from park to park, but generally guests can expect spooky decorations, haunted houses and mazes, fog, and strange and disturbing costumed performers roaming around the park.
Halloween events are NOT for small children and many brand their events as PG-13. Each park and/or chain has a name for their event. Below are links to some of the most popular Halloween theme park promotions:
Fright Fest at Six Flags Park
Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Hollywood and Orlando
Howl-O-Screamat Busch Gardens Tampa & Williamsburg
Hersheypark in the Dark at Hersheypark
Hallowboo! at Idlewild
Phantom Fright Nights at Kennywood
Frightmares at Lagoon
Phobia at Wild Adventures
