This Summer Horror is HOT! Now booking: Horror Summer Camp for Adults

in Events, Outside the Magic

Spring has sprung and summer is soon upon us.  This summer, why not a camping trip?  Not any ordinary camping trip but a 13 hour Fright Nights Campout (FNC)!  The all-night survival even comes complete with a traditional camp cookout (burgers, hot dogs, chips) and camp counselors. However after dinner, this exciting event promises to be anything but traditional.  Boasting “Ultimate Campout Games” (of survival) where the Monsters can (and do) touch you (unless you cry out the safe phrase “I’m a big Pansy”), a full night of fear and fun is planned for each city hosting the creepy campout.


Fright Nights Campout offers three levels of immersion:

For the faint of heart, there’s the Chicken Leg Tent ($65 per person/4 people per tent):
Our chicken legs are set up in what we call the “Pansy Zone”. Your interaction with our monsters will be much more toned down as they have been given strict instructions to not touch Chicken Leg guests. They may even want to cuddle with you like a soft teddy bear and read you a good night story.

Those desiring more interaction can opt for the Blood Tent ($75 per person/4 people per tent):
The Blood Tents offer a full on interactive experience, which is a fancy way of saying we may cut your tent in half. Blood Tents are for thrill seekers that are looking to test their will to survive the night against the best Fright Nights Campout has to offer. We do offer one slight safe haven with this tent though, we set up all Blood Tents together in the same area so you will all get to hear the screams.

Finally for those feeling the need for full-on fear – there is the Guts Tent ($85 per person/2 people per tent):
Guts Tents are our couples accommodation complete with a garden view and nightly turn down service. The Guts Tent is the ultimate thrill seekers 2 person tent package. Guts Tents are the most secluded tents in Fright Nights Campout but don’t worry, you will still be within proximity to a few tents so you will still be able to hear your neighbor scream “I’m a Big Pansy!” when the Monsters appear.

    I went to the Tampa event. It was very disappointing mainly due to incredibly disorganization. The activities and scares started 2 hours late. It is also nowhere near as intense scare wise as they make it sound.

    They delete the bad reviews from their pages, and they have yet to respond in any kind to our complaints. It just goes to prove mismanagement and sadly nothing but a feeling of being ripped off.

    I went to the Tampa one and it sucked. I rate it ★★☆☆☆, you payed to stand around and get eaten by mosquitoes. Most of the stuff advertised didn’t happen. The scare at night consisted of being awoke by a tent stack and them opening the door and draging you out and that’s it. I payed 95 $ for a tent that was advertised as the most intense, and a tent alone in the woods, but It was a tent in a field 5 feet away from another tent. The “scare” aspect was shit, they had good costumes but if I am buying the scariest level and having signed a waver I want it to be me being thrown around, thrown over a shoulder, and being shoved around, but no they were like let me just touch your face. And another thing it said hours of scare when lights out happened, ya ok I was able to fall asleep because nothing was happening. So basically if your want to pay 95$ to go camp in a field, play kids camp games, and eat shit food be my guest. Not the 4.5 star rating that it is posted as. I am pissed that I waste my money and time to just get eaten by mosquitoes.
