It’s something to see, and something to do, so we have included For Fright in Kingston to the Kingston attraction to the Kingston Activities List.
What is Fort Fright?
For about six weeks every fall, a segment of Kingston’s historical treasure ~ Fort Henry ~ is transformed into a house of fright; guaranteed to scare the bejeebers out of young and old alike.
They challenge… “Dare you enter the most frightful citadel in Ontario? Featuring amazing animatronics, live ghouls, hidden surprises, guaranteed goosebumps and screams!”
Fort Henry had a military hospital and infirmary
Fort Henry, like many other military establishments of the time, was host to a hospital and infirmary grounds. This stone house is located at the eastern advances of the Fort and is visible in the distance from the ramparts level. This house would have been home to the bodies of many of the men who have died in and around this area before burial and still today is said to have haunts and spirits near by.
Fort Fright in Kingston WARNING!
Not recommended for children 10 and under as it does have areas that are rather frightening.
Fort Fright is both an indoor and outdoor attraction. It can get rather cold during the hours of Fort Fright. We recommend that you dress appropriately for cold weather.
The screams begin in September each year and continue Tuesday through Saturday nights until early November, typically from 6:00 pm to 10:00 pm. For this Fort Fright attraction the Box Office at Fort Henry will open in the evenings.
If being scared out of your wits makes you hungry, then consider taking in the Fort Fright Dining experience at the Old Bones Bistro. It is normally open on Fridays and Saturdays at 5:00 pm during Fright Nights, in late September through early November.
There is a ghoulish trinket shop in the facility as well.
