New for FrightFest 2012, magician Aaron Radatz will up the ante of this year’s fall festivities. On Friday evenings at 7:30, he will face three primal fears: the fear of drowning, the fear of small spaces, and the fear of death, as he is handcuffed and submerged into a steel drum of ice-cold water. He will only have a lock pick and the air in his lungs to try and free himself before time runs out.
On Saturday nights at 7:30, he will put his life on the line again by hanging 40 feet in the air upside-down in a straitjacket and attempt to beat legendary magician Harry Houdini's best time at the same escape.
Both of these shock-and-awe performances will take place on stage near The Emporium.
For the fearless few, be sure to check out Dr. D.C. East’s House of Horrors, the Final Field Trip, Road Rage Cage, and the Possessed Twister for a frightfully good time. Families will also find fun and entertaining activities such as pumpkin painting, the Monster Mash Dance Party, a trick or treat trail, and the LaserBlast Spooktacular show.
Also, comedy duo Jessie and James will bring their unique blend of physical comedy and circus arts to entertain the audience.
Rowdy’s Ridge and all six roller coasters will be open on Saturday during the day along with other rides. FrightFest hours of operation are Fridays 6 to 10:00 p.m. and Saturdays 12 to 10 p.m., now through Oct. 13, plus one Sunday -- Oct. 7
