Downtown Myrtle Beach Halloween Fun Planned at Boardwalk Fright Nights
We always love new and fun ways to get spooked on Halloween, and this year, the Oceanfront Merchants’ Association is putting together a slew of scary fun right in Downtown Myrtle Beach and on the Boardwalk—which means it’s all within walking distance of Bay View Resort!
The Boardwalk Fright Nights will take place every Friday and Saturday night starting at 8 p.m. from Oct. 11 through Nov. 2 and includes a range of fun and scary attractions and special parties.
As part of Fright Nights, there will be live seaside concerts every Saturday night from Oct. 12-Nov. 2 (including Oktoberfest) at Plyler Park on the boardwalk from 8 to 11 p.m.
But here’s the scary part: Zombies will be roaming the downtown area during the duration of Fright Nights, and there will also be a special Zombie Quarantine Zone located in the alley between the new candy store I Love Sugar and Nightmare Haunted House on Ocean Boulevard.
As part of Fright Nights, you’ll be able to explore two haunted attractions at a discount: Ripley’s Haunted Adventure featuring their new asylum tour and Nightmare Haunted House featuring the new Monsters of the Midway tour. A special Fright Nights combo pass can be purchased at either attraction, which will give you entry to each of the two attractions for just $18 for adults and $14 for kids plus tax. I Love Sugar is also offering candy discounts and trick-or-treating for kids on Halloween day.
The fun goes on! Area thrill rides will offer 2 for 1 and half-off discounts as part of Fright Nights—Myrtle Beach Adrenaline Adventures Zip Line and Myrtle Beach Thrill Rides (including the ever-popular slingshot) are both participating. Even the Skywheel is getting in on the Halloween fun, with special Halloween-themed lighting in the evenings throughout the month of October.
And if all that scary fun isn’t enough, there will also be a fun new event for kids, the Ocean Boo-levard Children’s Spooktacular from 2 to 6 p.m. on Oct. 26. The event will take place around the shops on the boardwalk and downtown. The Oceanfront Merchants Association president Chris Walker said it will include “special child themed activities featuring face painting, pumpkin decorating, caricature artists and much more ending with a costume parade and trick-or-treating at area stores and shops.”
Halloween in Myrtle Beach is about to get even more fun!
