MONTREAL, Oct. 3, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - Starting this weekend, a ghoulish atmosphere of bloodcurdling terror descends once again upon La Ronde for Fright Fest, as the park celebrates Halloween for the 12th year in a row. During the day, the young and young-at-heart are invited to take part in numerous family activities, including the all-new Candy Kingdom. Starting at noon, the bravest souls can experience one of four haunted houses including the brand-new Dollhouse. When the clock strikes 5 p.m., the park transforms from "thrills by day" to "fright by night," becoming a nightmarish landscape where monsters and ghastly attractions such as the new Zombie Lounge will terrify even the bravest ones.
New attractions that will horrify you!
Over the next few weeks, La Ronde becomes a real "scream park," courtesy of these frighteningly fun attractions:
- The new haunted Dollhouse: With those perfect eyes, impassive faces and features that are almost too pure… Welcome to the Dollhouse, where all who enter will shriek in terror.
- The Zombie Lounge: Visitors to the park should make sure to stay far away from the Zombie Lounge, where frenzied music blares from the DJ booth and hypnotic lights flash across the dance floor. Many unlucky souls that have dared to venture into the lounge have simply disappeared without a trace.
- The Candy Kingdom: Enter the Candy Kingdom, a colourful and magical place where the royal couple and their court jester will welcome you with the sweetest attention.
Evil monsters, futuristic demons and other sinister characters
Prepare for the unexpected scare! While walking through the park, visitors will encounter horrible creatures whose only purpose in life (or death!) is to spread terror.
- District 510: Dare to enter where most humans have to be dragged in. Battle with mad scientists desperate to push the limits of the unknown by conducting experiments on humans.
- The Vampire's Lair: The Vampire's Lair has its name for a very good reason. This is a place unlike any other in Montreal, permanently shrouded in darkness. Nothing stops the undead from wandering around the park as they see fit.
- Death Row: Enjoy a secret night time tour of "Death Row," the most wicked prison in Montreal, from which no one has ever escaped alive.
- Massacre Museum: It is believed that this abandoned warehouse, dubbed Massacre Museum, draws in anyone who gets too close, dragging them through a disorienting world of terror and then sucking the very life out of them. Visitors who dare to set foot in this grim and mysterious building do so at their own risk, because there's no telling what might happen.
- The Demons: Once night has fallen, six mysterious demons are released into the park, with the sole purpose of scaring you to death. But watch out: There is no escape, no matter where you go in the park…
Fun for the whole family
Fright Fest at La Ronde also offers a number of attractions for young ghouls and goblins.
- Toddlers will have a ton of fun in the Little Pumpkin Patch, featuring the hilarious show put on by Ribambelle and her "pumpkin-y" friends!
- When stepping into The Zombiethèque, our makeup factory, visitors of all ages will undergo a "monstrous" transformation.
- Guests will also encounter The Freaky Monsters, a fun group of old horror hands, including Dracula and Frankenstein, who no longer scare anyone but are still pretty entertaining!
