Too Scared To Scream- Fright Haven

October 14, 2008
Media Contact: Fright Haven


October 14, 2008---West Haven - The state's newest and scariest haunted attraction, Fright Haven, is now open! Fright Haven, located at 480 Sawmill Road in West Haven, exit 42 off I-95 (former Staples building, across from Wal-Mart), is made up of three entirely separate haunted houses encompassing 25,000 square feet, all under one roof. For those who are leery of the darkness and the unknown, nightmares are around every corner at the Frightmare Fear Institute Pitch Black Haunt, a sensory experience encompassing all of one's fears and phobias. Another attraction, the 3-D Carnival of Evil, envisions a no-man's land where the old (and perhaps deceased) clowns of carnivals past have returned to seek revenge on those who abandoned their old stomping grounds, such as Savin Rock Amusement Park, Coney Island and other long-gone meccas for carnival clowns.

The 3-D effect is breathtaking, as are the demented clowns who invade the haunt. The final attraction, Dead End Manor, is an old-fashioned traditional haunted house with ghosts, zombies, vampires and other undead creatures roaming every rooms, hall and area of the dilapidated mansion. Be careful, because among the dead, there are actual live mice eating away at a trapped victim! As scary and morbid and macabre as it sounds, it's all in good fun, of course, as Fright Haven's "Team of Terror" are actors professionally trained in the art of scaring and startling. Being indoors, Fright Haven has the benefit of being able to be remain open even if it rains. Scares take place every Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday through November 1st. Additionally Fright Haven will be open the Tuesday and Wednesday of Halloween week. Doors open to the public nightly at 7pm. The month-long attraction is sponsored by WTNH Channel 8, WEBE 108 radio station and Boppers DJs Entertainment, and the benefiting charity is United Way of New Haven in support of their statewide 2-1-1 community and human services information and referral program.
Last year, during the Halloween season, the haunt attracted approximately 18,000 people with a passion for getting scared, and was rated the top new haunted attraction in America. This year, with an investment in state-of-the-art animatronics, Fright Haven has added new scares and fun features to bring it the level of a world-class haunted attraction. Due to the intensity and fear factor of FRIGHT HAVEN, those with weak hearts, health conditions, young children and pregnant women are advised to enter under their own risk. Mark Kirschner, one of the project managers and a professor of psychology, suggests that people do not visit FRIGHT HAVEN alone. "Be sure that you are accompanied by friends, family and those you trust to keep you safe from the evils and the unknown contained within the haunted walls of this attraction," remarks Kirschner. As Fright Haven boasts, "you'll be too scared to scream."
Admission is only $10 per attraction, with a special discounted combo pass for all three haunts available for $20. There is also a special V.I.P. speed pass combo ticket which entitles visitors to front-of-the-line privileges and a souvenir t-shirt. Advance tickets are available online, along with further information, at http://www.frighthaven.com/. Group discounts are available by phone at (203) 799-FEAR, which is also the haunt's info line. - end -
