DarthSpielberg Posted September 7, 2016 Share Posted September 7, 2016 (edited) Way back when HHNVault was a thing, I posted about a haunted event concept I concocted called Nightmare Alley. It was so much fun to sit down and craft my own HHN style event, and every year since I have devoted a little bit of time to creating one. over time the event has morphed into Fright Forest and it takes place at a fictional theme park resort (that I built in Roller Coaster Tycoon 3) This is the ninth year I've mapped out an entire event, so here is a taste of Fright Forest: Mountains of Madness "Fright Forest" Backstory: Fright Forest is the annual Halloween event at the Adventure Gardens resort. The event started in 2007 as Nightmare Alley and was built in an open lot next to the first park at the resort and not actually inside the park. The first year had a carnival themed atmosphere that has sort of lingered through many of the years since. For it's fifth season, the event took on the subtitle Fright Forest, and the following season, Nightmare Alley was no more, with Fright Forest becoming the full name of the event. Like Horror Nights the event uses a mix of original content and film based IPs. The films are perhaps more obscure than what HHN uses, but in some cases wouldn't be out of place at Universal. As with Universal, several iconic characters have led the event. Ruby a demented ventriloquist dummy, Nightshade the Clown, Master Ravenswood (owner of a ghostly manor), and The Collector (a museum curator whose collection houses monsters and mayhem) In 2015, the event finally spread from it's seperate lot into the two parks in the resort, creating a mini park of it's own. The theme was of two differing "realms" The Woods, home to all sorts of archaic ancient horrors, and The Neighborhood, featuring more traditional Halloween settings. This year, the main event was a house based on Trick R Treat and Sam from the film acted as the iconic figure of the event This Year Brings Terror to New Heights when the event becomes Fright Forest: Mountains of Madness. 2016 Backstory For it's ninth year of fear, Fright Forest has taken over Mystic Mountains, the second theme park in the Adventure Gardens resort. Now based entirely in a park, the event will be bigger than ever before, offering more space to frighten and delight the guests of the event. Mountains of Madness is the subtitle for the season, and the madness comes at the hand of the event's three iconic figures, the Sisters of the Mountains. Wicked Fairies who are hellbent on destroying the world of men invite you into their realm, to toy and play with you before they go for the kill. They have their own Fright zone at the entrance to the park called "Terra's Landing" and their own house, Mountains of Madness where you enter their lair at the base of Mount Mysterion, the focal point of the park, and come face to face with the spirits of the earth. This season features 8 haunted houses, Four original concepts, four based on existing IPs.
