Review by Ben Pawliger and Jake Wasserman
Fright Nights 2012 is a spookified center of fun for everyone in the South Florida Area. People of all ages, from young children to older adults came out to the South Florida Fairgrounds to be spooked and horrified by zombies and monsters. Fright Nights is a large carnival with a Halloween twist. Rides, such as ferris-wheels, go-carts, spinning cradles, games, and more are planted all over the fairgrounds, as would any carnival. The Halloween twist though includes Haunted Houses, monsters strolling through the Midway, and of course, the crazy chain-saw crazy zombies. These zombies are not the typical slow walking arms out zombies, these zombies are ready to spook any guests of theirs by sneaking up behind them, ripping the loud chainsaws at their ears, feet, or wherever it is easiest to spook their new friends. The haunted houses are also a creepy attraction at the event. These 5 houses are dark traps with strange monsters poking at their prey from every direction! Everyone, from children to adults, claimed that they were scared from these houses of horror. Forget pumpkins and candy, the real spookiness and fun of Halloween is at Fright Nights in West Palm Beach, Florida.
South Florida’s Fright Night is open for business at the South Florida Fairgrounds. This year there are 5 Haunted Houses to chose from. It’s scary even walking around the grounds of Fright Nights because you never know who is going to come up and scare you!! Take friends for support…..and watch your back.
To get there: take I95 north to SOuthern Blvd. Go west to Fairgrounds Road. Make a right and go to Gate8. You can’t miss it. You can also take 441 North to Southern and make a right turn. Turn left on to Fairgrounds Road and go to gate 8.
It’s open Thursday through Saturday. Thursday until 11 and the weekends till 12.
Have a frighteningly great time. We did.
