Q - Can I bring my kids?

A - We recommend that children be 12 years old or older, but this is up to you. It really depends upon each individual child, and no one knows your child as you do. We have kids as young as 5 or 6 that love it and want more, and we have kids as old as 15 or 16 that have to be helped out. You as a parent must make the judgment call. If you are unsure, all children are welcome to our amusement midway. This is a safe zone - our monsters are on short leashes and are not permitted to roam the midway. That way the entire family can still come and enjoy Frightland. You can purchase ride bracelets for the younger children. We do not recommend bringing very young children or infants into Frightland as it can be chilly, damp, and loud.
