Fort FrightFORT FRIGHT

Looking for a real scare this Halloween season? Well you won’t want to miss Fort Fright, one of the scariest haunted houses in North America! Kingston’s Fort Henry has transformed itself into a truly spooky place that will be sure to send shivers down your spine.  Fort Fright brings back the dead this fall with new locations, new technology and new frights!

New this year, parents can purchase a safe pass for their children that will allow them to enjoy the night without worry of too much fright! So bring your whole family for an evening of fun and scares.

This is the second year that Fort Fright has been completely redesigned for an interactive ghostly experience. Fort Fright’s theme this year, Dead Dark, will have you nervously checking over your shoulder wondering who or what will be popping out of the darkness.  This is a truly authentic experience, worthy of every scream of excitement and fright.
