Playland Fright Nights 2023

The Void – New for 2023

For 2023, Playland is introducing a brand new terrifying experience, The Void.

The story goes that concealed deep within the woods are the eerie Howling Caves. Despite being surrounded by well-worn trails, most adventurers avoid the area due to chilling tales of the horrors hidden within.

When locals start disappearing, it is up to you and your friends to enter the caves and rescue them. Will you be able to survive the horrendous beings within or become another victim lost?

Haunted Houses

Returning for another year are the popular bone chilling haunted houses. They offer a spine-tingling experience, immersing visitors in a world of eerie mazes and chilling encounters.
