September 28 - October 28

Fridays 6-11pm




Fright Fest® will return to Darien Lake Theme Park Resort this fall, bringing Thrills by Day and Fright by Night to the park for five weekends beginning Sept. 28th.


By day, families with young children can enjoy a trick-or-treat trail, along with other kid-friendly activities. But, at night the park transforms from a theme park to a scream park featuring:

  • Zombies roaming around every corner;
  • New scare zones and haunted mazes;
  • Two new haunted houses (additional fee required); and
  • A new laser light show, Laser Spooktacular, performed on Friday and Saturday nights at 10:30 p.m.


More details about Fright Fest will be announced in the coming weeks. Admission to the event is included with a 2018 season pass.
