In my previous list of haunts getting a jump on the Halloween season by starting this weekend, I forgot to mention Fright Fair. This haunt combines a daytime harvest festival (appropriate for families) with scarier night-time activities, including an indoor haunted house and an outdoor haunted trail.
Fright Fair used to be one of the most intense and scariest of seasonal attractions. The intensity has diminished since they added the Harvest Festival (they may be stretching themselves too thin), but perhaps only a hardcore aficionado would notice the difference. In any case, it may be time to give them another chance to see whether they have reclaimed past glories.
