Join us in celebrating our Sweet 16 - If you dare!

Fright Nights is the premier haunted house attraction in South Florida and 2017 is going to be chock full of scares!

With 4 full haunts, carnival rides, live music, food, and entertainment, Fright Nights should be your number one Scream Park destination in 2017! The reason Fright Nights has the best haunted houses in South Florida is simple:
We care about the scare!

Each year we are dedicated to bringing you BRAND NEW haunted attractions, and this year will be no different. In past years we’ve had 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! Located at the South Florida Fairgrounds in West Palm Beach, we have ACRES of scares and plenty of parking. Be sure to “friend us” on Facebook for updates on when the dead will walk again!

***2017 HAUNTS***

THE CUCKOO’S NEST
This is not another Hallucination, you have been admitted to the Scharnhorst Mental Asylum, nicknamed “The Cuckoo’s Nest” by the locals. The Cuckoo’s Nest is a Hospital for the criminally insane, full of the most violent and demented offenders. But beware, the staff has been slaughtered and lobotomized killers and violent sociopaths now roam the halls. No one is safe. Solitary confinement, straight jackets, electroshock therapy have only made the Homicidal Maniacs angry and out for revenge.

OCCULTUS
Concerned whispers rapidly transform to fervent screams of accusation as hysteria engulfs a town crumbling under the threat of witchcraft. Friends, neighbors, family members - no one is safe from persecution. Each night brings a new trial followed immediately by an execution, a death which fails to quell the insatiable lust for answers among the townsfolk. Leaving your hundredth trial, you trudge the dimly lit cobblestone streets when you are suddenly flanked by members of the occult and presented with a proposition: protection for defection.

NECROMANTIA
During the late 19th century while the industrial revolution was in full swing, many electrical and medical advances were taking place. At the forefront of this new alchemy was Dr. Victor Frankenstein. As Victor thought of himself as the modern Prometheus he would stop at nothing to achieve the forbidden dark art of necromancy. The paradox of life and death consumed the doctor and his works reflected this, as he scoured the local cemeteries for fresh cadavers. While his impatience grew to find the perfect specimen, the Dr. became more bold and would scout the local taverns and social events hoping to find the perfect individual or… part of one to further his dark obsession. The end result of the good doctors ambitions turned out to be more sinister than anyone could have imagined.

SHUTTER
Many people fantasize of making it big: like being a big star in a glitzy motion picture or a model in a glamour magazine… it is, after all, the stuff dreams are made of. But when a sadistic serial killer lures people into his gruesome lair with promises of wealth and fame - those dreams become a nightmare. Are you ready for your close up?


***SCARE ZONES***

WASTELAND
After a deadly virus destroys humanity, causing the collapse of civilization as we know it, survivors find refuge on a military base. The wasteland is a stark post- apocalyptic landscape where mutants terrorize the survivors.

SIDE SHOW FREAKS
Used car salesman and serial con man John Dotty aka "Dots" is on the run again. This time for fronting stolen goods for the mob. With bounty on his life and his face is on every wanted posted from here to Alaska, he's gotta change his face - and fast. So he dons a new disguise: "Dots" the clown and gathers every Freak in town to opens his own Freakshow and doing what he does best: ripping people off. Email Haunt Owner

Review This Haunt
  • Simply the best by far!!!!

    This Halloween attraction is by far, the best I've ever been to. They put so much effort in every single detail that the end result is absolutely fantastic. It's scary, entertaining, funny, it's awesome. This year will be my third year in a row, and I recommend this attraction to everyone who will love a good scare.

    Lines are long but worth the wait. Each house is so different. On top of having houses to go into they also have the midway. Eating a hot dog? Yeah becarful what might be standing next to you lol. I didn't realize they were going to be on the midway. I can't wait for this year. I saw a few behind the sense and I hear it's the 16th year. They are calling it the sweet 16. I'm ready to go. Oct get here faster!

  • Great Scary Night Out!

    This place has been our "Go To" place every year at least once every Halloween. I always try to not be scared, but at some point the awesome actors always get to me. The haunts are well planned and the actors really frightening! Can't wait for it again this year!

  • Love it!

    The haunts are always fun and you can tell they're created and run by people who love what they're doing. Especially for the size of the haunted houses, they are organized and safe.

  • we love fright nights

    We have such a great time. Would rather go to fright nights then horror nights. Actors are amazing and we now make this our tradition for my husbands birthday. Its great even when the lines seem long it does not take long at all. Most we have been in line was maybe 30 minutes. Well worth the money even though we dont rise the rides. We even buy the extra tickets to revisit some haunts. Cant wait for this year. My daughter loves going also. We love halloween and this is a great place to go. See ya all soon.

  • It was okay

    This event was interesting enough, but my boyfriend and I were really expecting a more Halloween-themed carnival. As it was, it was like a small, regular fair with a handful of haunted houses. The $25 ticket gets you in to 3 of the 5, and if you don't enjoy dizzying rides, it's really over-priced. "The Creature" and "Santa's Workshop" were pretty good, but the "Midway" one had more screaming and jumping out than actual scaring.

  • Fright Nights is a frightfully good time!

    If you are a fan of haunted attractions, you can’t afford to miss this year’s Fright Nights at the South Florida Fairgrounds. It is more than worth the price of admission, and you never know who you’ll run into in the haunted mazes (literally).

  • terror-ific!

    i loved it here, the actors are all so in character and the make-up and costumes are outstanding. their house themes are always super scary, and the rides and bands that play are so awesome! the foods good too! its also really creepy that you can see the 'haunted riddle house' from travel channel (like it has real ghosts) as your standing in line. super creepy! the prices are really good too! cant wait to go this year!
