To celebrate the scary season, the Fright Fest returns to the Federal Way.
The Wild Waves Theme & Water Park in Federal Way brings the Fright Fest back in time for its 20th anniversary, transforming the spookiest elements of the park’s haunted houses into two open-air night terrors mazes, the company said.
The Fright Fest is open every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from October 8th to 31st.
New this year is the Hello Movies series for families during the day. Every Saturday and Sunday, families can enjoy eight classics and current films at 2:30 p.m. and 4:30 p.m.
During the day, guests and ghouls have plenty of space to roam around and explore family-friendly fall activities while keeping a safe distance from goblins and other guests.
“It was wonderful to see guests in the park again this summer, enjoy rides, cool off in the wave pool, eat elephant ears and ice cream,” said Jody Kneupper, park president. “We are thrilled that the fun doesn’t have to end. This season marks the 20th anniversary of the Fright Fest! Our team has reinterpreted our ghostly experiences so that both team members and guests can keep a lot of distance and at the same time enjoy a good horror. ”
Friday evening is guaranteed for brave souls, because the park is open from 6:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m.
Fearless maze explorers will encounter medical mishaps, spooky clowns and a zombie apocalypse in the Chamber of Souls. Guests can also take a forest walk through Camp Whispering Pines, where camp counselors will greet visitors to the Summer Camp of Nightmares.
Adventure seekers will have another chance to scream while riding their favorite roller coasters and rides in the dark of the night.
Also open on Saturdays and Sundays from 2pm to 10pm, the park offers not-so-scary adventures in Booville. Located in the children’s section of the park, this family-friendly zone will be “fear-free” and pint-sized fun, including handicrafts, Xakary the Mage, a howling maze, safe trick or treating, a costume contest, and games.
Many of Wild Waves’ theme park rides open during Fright Fest, surrounded by miles of cobwebs that pave the way for thrills.
You’ll find great fall foods and treats here, including Monster Fudge and Jack-O-Lantern Candied Apples.
