South Carolina’s largest multi-attraction haunt, Boone Hall Fright Nights, shocked the Lowcountry last year when they announced they would not be opening for the 2016 season. Since its birth in 2004, Boone Hall has worked alongside DVE Productions to bring us this spook-tacular show. Last year, however, they hit one too many bumps in the road and placed the haunt on hold. With not enough time to build an up-to-par attraction by October, Boone Hall promised us they would be back soon. Sure enough, they kept their word.
While DVE Productions is no longer a part of the project, Boone Hall is promising bigger and better scares with 4 new attractions. If you’ve driven past the farm on Highway 17, you’ve already seen the ghoulish facade of the The Crypt, where winding hallways will bring you up-close and personal with your darkest nightmares. If you’re feeling brave, you can take on The Cemetery of Lost Souls, an adventure through the realm of the undead.
Even with the re-vamp, Boone Hall is keeping the classic Wicked Woods Haunted Hayride – just hold on to your seat, there’s a lot of hungry monsters out there. The final addition is a 4D attraction called The Gateway, which plays with high-tech chroma depth special FX, while also hurling you into another dimension filled with creatures thirsty for blood.
Tickets are on sale now through Boone Hall Fright Night’s website and opening night is set for September 29, 2017. The attractions will be open through Halloween night. Weekday hours will go from 7:15pm to 10:00pm and weekend hours until 12:00am. Each attraction can be purchased separately, but if you want the full haunting, you can purchase a ScreamPass for only $45.
