Fort Fright Named on of Top 10 Haunted Houses in North America
KINGSTON, Ontario – Fort Henry’s fall scare attraction Fort Fright has been named as one of the Top Ten Haunted Houses in North America. Sun Media published the list today and includes sites from Philadelphia, St. Louis, Toronto and Atlanta.
Fort Fright was launched in October 2007 filling a niche in the fall offering an unsurpassed experience with a creative blend of live scare actors, Hollywood-style animatronics and stunning visual special effects all set against the limestone backdrop of the 19th century fortress of Fort Henry. In 2008 Festivals and Events Ontario (FEO) named Fort Fright Ontario’s Top New Event.
“Our team is delighted to be included in this distinguished list of top ten haunted houses in North America. We appreciate the recognition. Each year we work hard to deliver a better event and develop new ways to engage our visitors. I think they have really come to expect new experiences, new scares and clearly it is being noticed,” said Will Baird, Manager of Fort Henry National Historic Site of Canada.
The addition of Fort Fright in the fall, during a time that would normally be the tourism off-season has also served to drive new visitors into the local market generating significant economic benefits both for the City of Kingston and Ontario. Since its launch in 2007 Fort Fright has welcomed over 140,000 visitors and generated millions of screams.
Fort Fright is open nightly from Thursday, October 23 through to Saturday, November 1, 2014 from 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. Tickets are general admission $15 per person (plus tax). For more information or to purchase tickets online visit Fort Henry
