FORT FRIGHT LAUNCHES 11TH SEASON OCTOBER 4, 2018
Family friendly “The Otherworld” newest addition.
KINGSTON, Ontario – Fort Henry is transforming into its fall season and will open for Fort Fright on Thursday, October 4. New for its 11th year is the launch of the new family-friendly experience ‘The Otherworld’.
A sneak peek into ‘The Otherworld’ Fort Henry is introducing a new family-friendly experience at Fort Fright this year called ‘The Otherworld’. Step into another dimension, an enchanting place where a warm glow lingers from the summer season and a magical, mystical world is unveiled as summer fades to fall. As the two seasons merge into one, a beautiful story is revealed through otherworldly creatures and captivating places.
Characters greet guests along the way to help with interactive games, activities and to convey the story of the Otherworld. Entering the mythical land of a Giant Forest, you will feel as though you have shrunken as you experience giant sized mushrooms, and butterflies. Travel through the Otherworld pumpkin patch and meet the friendly witches along the way who are gathering to make their magical potions. The Otherworld is suitable for guests of all ages.

This year get ready as your fears and phobias will be tested. The storyline will take visitors to the Mindset Research facility where research is being done on phobias and triggering peoples’ worst fears.
