Boone Hall Fright Nights
October 3-5, 10-12, 16-19, 23-26, 39-31, 2014
November 1, 2014
Boone Hall Fright Nights is South Carolina's largest Haunted event with 4 terrifying attractions that are re-themed every year. Frightmare Factory is the ultimate production facility of fear. A place where horrific creatures and supernatural terrors are created that invade the darkest part of the human mind. Do clowns scare you? Do you ever wonder what kind of mind a person has that hides behind sinister make-up and costumes with the twisted intent to make you laugh and feel good? Twisted Terror encapsulates this demented mindset by creating a false illusion of fun but with evil intent... and all in mind-blowing 3D. The most popular attraction at Fright Nights is now going to be one of the most intense as well. Once again the deep, dark woods of historic Boone Hall Plantation will be opened to those that are brave enough to venture into the horrors that await within the dark mist. Each year the intensity of the Wicked Woods Hayride increases making this year the most intense and terror has compounded to an unimaginable level. Finally, Prim Springs is now known as Zombie Town and this year to commemorate last years horror, Fright Nights will be having a celebration in Zombie Town known as Bloodfest; and you are invited. Buy tickets to one event or purchase the All You Dare to Scare pass to visit all four attractions. Click here for additional information.
