So far we've covered places in the US and UK to go to for the Halloween season, but this time, we thought we'd feature something for those of you in the Southern Hemisphere; specifically Australia. Warner Bros. Movie World in Queensland has held Halloween Fright Nights (previously called Halloween Family Fun Night, until 2009) every year since 2006, with great success.
"This October ‘Fright Nights’ at Movie World will be the scariest yet… your favourite theme park will be transformed into a playground of nightmares when two of the world’s most popular horror film franchises; SAW and A Nightmare on Elm Street, will come back to life. For the first time in Movie World history, these two iconic movies will be recreated as mazes for the return of the highly acclaimed 2009 Fright Nights. In 2010, Fright Nights at Movie World will up the ante on all previous horror experiences and totally blow your mind… every waking moment will be filled with unexpected fear and even shadows in the darkness will play on your subconscious – “Was that Freddy lurking in the dark, or… did you just see Billy the Puppet hiding around the corner…?”Fright Nights will be held at Warner Bros. Movie World on the 8th, 9th, 16th, 23rd, 29th, 30th and 31st of October 2010 from 6:00pm - 11:00pm. SUPERMAN ESCAPE, BATWING Spaceshot, LETHAL WEAPON and Wild West Falls will operate from 6:00pm - 9:00pm. All other attractions operate until 11:00pm."
Whilst the Saw and Friday the 13th themed mazes are somewhat reminiscent of Universal's Halloween Horror Nights (Hollywood), attractions like the Zombie Motor Cross Live Show and the Live Freak Show, plus the multitude of rides make Fright Nights a very different experience!
