Canada's Wonderland To Hold First Ever Halloween Event

Vaughan, Ontario -- FearFest Haunted Theme Park will premier this fall at Paramount Canada's Wonderland. For nine evenings in October the park will be transformed into a frightening, dark, haunted theme park, with three bone-chilling and horrifying themed areas, new spine-tingling attractions, mazes and over 100 scaractors.

Canada's Wonderland officials plans to transform the park into a terrifying place with three distinct areas: The Curse of Sleepy Hollow, MTV Rockin' Scare and Studio Backlot Bloodbath. Each of the areas will feature different types of experiences, including walk through fear zones and mazes, plus Halloween themed shows.

Guests visiting during FearFest will walk through areas of the theme park that have been redesigned to be intensely frightening. At Massacre Manor, Blood Shed, Slaughter Street Fearzone and others, guests will encounter creatures, ghouls, monsters, and other crazed characters in a variety of terrifying scenes.

The park promises that this Halloween makeover will have guests looking over their shoulder and wondering what is lurking in the shadows.

Inside the Paramount Theatre and Action F/X Theatre visitors will find a horrific tribute to slasher favorite, Friday the 13th and theme appropriate interactive movie rides, Elvira's Superstition and Funhouse Express.

In addition, Canada's Wonderland will operate a number of the most popular thrill rides and roller coasters during the event. Most of the park's signature rides will be open, including Drop Zone, Minebuster, Top Gun, Vortex and Psyclone.

FearFest hours are 5 pm to 11 pm every Friday and Saturday from Oct. 14 through Oct. 29, plus Thursday, Oct. 27, Sunday, Oct. 30 and Monday, Oct. 31, Halloween.

Admission for FearFest is $29.99. 2005 Season pass holders can purchase tickets for $19.99 online or $24.99 at the door. Season pass holders who renew or purchase a 2006 season pass can purchase FearFest tickets at the park for $14.99.

FearFest Haunted Theme Park is designed to be frightening and it is not recommended for children. For more information about the event, visit
