The dark side of Lagoon is back, and it begins this Friday at 5pm! As mentioned here on the forum, Lagoon is introducing their 5th haunted house: Frightening Frisco located in the Pioneer Pavilion up by Rattlesnake Rapids. This is the first year Lagoon has put a haunted house in this location, so it will be interesting to see the new house. I'm excited for this location and look forward to it.
20 Years of Terror is returning with a tweaked name: Terrors of the Past. Other returning attractions include the Fun House of Fear, Zombie Lockdown, Nightwalk, Spook-A-Boo, and Scary & Crow's Straw Maze. Entertainment choices include two shows this year: Hackenslash Chainsaw Demonstration Team over on the Monster Stage in front of Game Time and Into the Dark at the Carousel Theatre. Windy the Witch will be back wandering Kiddieland and Pioneer Village. She will also be doing Story Time with Windy over by the Lagoon-A-Beach Entrance.
There is plenty for everyone in the entire family to enjoy this year. Frightmares runs for 7 weekends, and the schedule for most weekends is as follows:
Friday: 5pm to 11pm
Saturday: 11am to 11pm
Sunday: 11am to 8pm
The one exception to this is UEA weekend where Lagoon will be open the 20th and 21st from 11am to 11pm.
We are now in the last week for Lagoon's summer operating hours. One week from today, Lagoon returns to a weekend-only operating schedule. While this is sad, it also means that something exciting is coming our way: Frightmares!
This year, Frightmares begins on September 16th at 5:00 p.m., so that means that Frightmares is one month away starting today. People who have followed this site for years know that Frightmares is my favorite time to head to Lagoon, so I am super excited that it is only a month away. And with the unconfirmed addition of a new haunted house in Pioneer Village this year, I am looking forward to seeing what Frightmares 2016 brings us!
Forum user Stacy has been nice enough to start a Frightmares 2016 topic where we can discuss the upcoming haunt event, so I encourage you to check it out.
You read that right! Lagoon’s summer schedule will be ending in just a couple of weeks. This is always a sad time of year for me as Lagoon gets ready to go back to a weekend-only schedule for the remainder of the year. It’s also a very busy time at Lagoon while groups, families, and individuals put in as much Lagoon fun before the summer ends.
Lagoon’s summer schedule will end on August 23rd with the park closing at 6:00 p.m. that night. After that it’s back to their weekend-only schedule up to September 16th then Lagoon’s Frightmares schedule begins.
Will you be heading to the park often for the next to weeks to enjoy it as much as possible before it goes back to being open on the weekends, or have you already worn yourself out this summer?
