FrightFest at Frontier City is Here!

· No Comments

If you are looking for a good family Halloween scare, then you will definitely want to look into the FrightFest celebration at Frontier City.   It has been at least five years since I’d decided to venture to the popular Oklahoma tourist destination during their October celebration of all things haunted, but I thought that this year might be a good time to stop in and see what (if anything) had changed. 

One of the things that I always used to enjoy about FrightFest was the fact that even if you were traveling with someone who does not like to visit the haunted houses, you can still enjoy the park.  This is because the workers at Frontier City have taken the time to decorate the entire park.  When the lights go down at night then you get the opportunity to travel through the park and ride all of the rides with the distinct feeling of Halloween in the air. 

However if you do enjoy haunted houses, then Frontier City always has one that is both surprising and good fun.  This year they have set up the haunted house in the building that used to house the old Nightmare roller coaster.  In the past when I have been they have set the haunted experience outside in a sort of tent maze, but this difference was something that was different and appreciated as the closed in area added a bit of anxiety to the trek through the 30 haunted rooms that they had set up.  If you are a fan of haunted houses, then you might want to check this one out, but be prepared as the cost is extra if you want to go in and you could end up waiting in a long line just to get into the attraction. 

If you are traveling with children, then you might also be interested to learn that there is a BooVille attraction set up for these young Halloween goers as well.  It allows them to go through a trick-or-treating experience through a pumpkin patch.  While they make their way through this path they will come across different movie themed booths from which they can collect candy.  This is a safe and fun way for many children to celebrate Halloween, and it is included in park admission.  While I did not go over that way myself, I did see several children running around the area in their costumes and it looked like they were having a lot of fun.

So, if you are looking for something fun and easy to do to celebrate Halloween with family and friends, check out Frontier City’s FrightFest!
