Have you ever been to Phantom Fright Nights at Kennywood?
I received free passes to Phantom Fright Nights at Kennywood in exchange for this honest review. As always, all opinions are my own.
This past summer my family and I didn't make it to Kennywood and we all felt like there was something missing. Kennywood has been a tradition in my family since before I was even born. My grandparents went at least once a year and we carried on that tradition when I was growing up.
One of my sons spent over two months in Chicago visiting family and just before he was going to be returning home, he asked if we could make it to Kennywood before the summer was over. Well, his timing was off and he was getting home after their regular summer hours BUT we were still able to make it for Phantom Fright Nights.

We have never been to the park for anything other than the regular summer fun so this was a new experience for us but we were ready for it.
The weather was perfect and almost every ride was running, which thrilled me because my family wanted to be sure that they would still be able to ride the coasters and the Black Widow and they were. Yay!
The scares were real. 😉 I'm a screamer so I was prepared to scream....a lot and I did but it wasn't so scary that I had nightmares or lost my breath. It was scary but fun. There were chainsaws and jump scares, but that's all part of the Phantom Fright Night experience and I loved every second of it.
The Haunted Houses were SCARY but if you go with a group, close your eyes tight if you need to, and have someone you can squeeze you'll be fine....or if you are braver than me (which isn't hard!) you will be just fine and you'll have stories to tell afterward.
The park had an eerie feel to it with smoke (dry ice, maybe?) being pumped all throughout the park and rising to give a fog-like appearance which added perfectly to the Halloween feel.
We rode, and rode, and rode, got spooked, laughed, scared each other, and had an amazing time!
Even though summer is over you can still get in at least one more visit to Kennywood for Phantom Fright Nights. Save money with my special code, grab your family, load up the car, and make some memories!
