26th Annual Nightfall Expands With New Haunts, Shows!
This year’s Nightfall at Old Tucson, 201 S. Kinney Road, has been expanded, with a new haunted town and the return of the ghoulishly entertaining musical. Fans of the scarefest can also expect to see familiar characters and updated frights.
Nightfall is a one-of-a-kind Halloween blowout, attracting thousands of people to the park throughout the month of October. Events and activities abound for people of all ages and fright levels. Guests who are queasy about scary things can purchase “Scare Me Not” wands to ward off evil intruders.
Nightfall launches September 29! Hours are Thursdays and Sundays from 6 to 10 p.m., and Fridays and Saturdays from 6 p.m. to midnight. Nightfall also will be open on Halloween night from 6 to 10 p.m.
Admission to Nightfall is $28 for adults (age 12 and over) and $21 for children (ages 9-11) with FREE admission for children 8 years and under. Groups of 10 or more can purchase tickets online. Discounts for opening weekend and for Thursdays and Sundays can be found at all Tucson area Wendy’s, Goodwill stores, or at Basha’s and Food City when purchasing select Pepsi products.
