November 1st
in Orange

"Fright Haven's Family Day: Kid-Friendly, Non-Scary Halloween Matinee 401 Boston Post Road, Route 1, Orange, CT (former CompUSA building) FRIGHT HAVEN is CT's Newest and Greatest Haunted House Attraction offering visitors three different haunted houses of horror all under the same roof: Dead End Manor, Frightmare Fear Institute Pitch Black Haunt, and Carnival of Evil in 3D! 25,000 square ft of INDOOR terror (open even if it rains) - scarier and gorier than ever.
Because Fright Haven may be too intense for young ones, we have organized a very special FAMILY FUN DAY on Saturday afternoon, November 1st (the day after Halloween) from 1-3pm. It's an all-ages, kid-friendly 'lights on' matinee where our ghost-guides will show guests through the haunts without the scary music, working animatronics and, most importantly , without the scares. There will be an educational tour of the three haunts, and visitors will learn all the secrets of the haunted attraction, and reveal the hiding places where actors would normally jump out at people. Everyone will still be able to experience the 3-D house (but without the menacing clowns), and all the elements of the three different themed haunts. There will be refreshments available and face-painting artists on hand. 1pm-3pm $10 per attraction/$20 discounted combo pass. 203-795-4737 or 203-799-FEAR. Admission is $5.00 off for children under 10 when accompanied by an adult (no coupons or other promotional offers accepted)."
