At Fright Planet, a haunted theme park, the screams of guests reverberate off the walls of five indoor haunted houses and bounce off an illuminated screen during a showing of a 3-D horror flick. Creep through the eerie environments of each haunted attraction, which evoke distinct and terrifying themes. Scurvy Island raises pirates from their watery graves, Dead Man's Lagoon sends thrill-seekers searching for cursed treasure, and Blackout rekindles childhood fears of the dark. Death Row unleashes hordes of monstrous inmates, and the Psycho Midway in 4-D gathers crazed circus performers in a demented circus wafting with scents of tangible fear and global warming. Having survived the shriek-soaked houses, submit to the ScreamMax's barrage of terror-drenched 3-D images, which unfold over 25 minutes. Though Fright Planet specializes in scares, it offers admissions for all ages, requiring a parent or guardian for courageous children 13 and under.
Fright Planet Haunted Theme Park
Fright Planet Haunted Theme Park's outdoor theme park acts as a library of the world's most potent phobias. Every year, cast members reimagine its catalog of haunted environs, crafting new sets, props, and characters to prey on guests. Its dedication to genuine scares calls for only the best actors and the most grisly scenery, which is constructed with the help of a former Disneyland artist and a bulldozer possessed by the soul of a 1700s architect.
The lineup includes eight attractions. Though the houses all have distinct themes and decor, they share two factors: a richly painted backstory and a population of live, ghoulish denizens. Staring toys line the shelves at Hobart's Doll Factory and tight passageways put the squeeze on those brave enough to enter Jatinga: The Forbidden Temple. Other experiences play on claustrophobic fears—for example, Buried Alive: The Ride shuts patrons into a coffin where they endure a simulated hearse ride, burial, and the chilling sound of worms calling dibs on their body parts.
