WEST MIFFLIN, PA
Screams of terror and joy will float through the night at Kennywood once again this fall as Phantom Fright Nights, recognized by USA TODAY and Amusement Today as one of the best Halloween theme park events, returns beginning Friday, September 27.
Phantom Fright Nights will welcome a new haunt, new 4D Movie and the Best New Roller Coaster of 2019, The Steel Curtain, to its masterful mix of thrilling rides and chilling haunted attractions. PFN stalks into Kennywood Fridays and Saturdays from September 27 – October 26 (6 p.m. – 12 a.m.), plus Sundays in October (6 p.m. – 11 p.m.)
New this fall, guests will visit Shady Grove Memorial Hospital, where a murderous doctor is stalking patients and staff alike. Can you help find the culprit – or more importantly, make it out alive?!
For those that do, eight other haunts and scare zones await, plus an escape room and IT: The 4D Experience®, a feature short based on the 2017 remake of the classic Stephen King novel in Kennywood’s 4D Theater. Experience IT like never before: IT: The 4D Experience is an 18-minute show filled with extra surprises, like eye-popping cinematography and spine-chilling special effects, to heighten the storyline. IT: The 4D Experience is included with admission to Phantom Fright Nights.
“As one of Pittsburgh’s most popular and longest-running Halloween attractions, we’re always looking to reinvent ourselves,” says Marie Ruby, Director of Ride and Phantom Fright Nights Operations. “With a new haunt, new movie and a new record-setting roller coaster, this year’s Fright Nights will deliver major thrills…or else!”
