ACE-DAFE Phantom Fright Night

Saturday, October 12, 2019
3:30 p.m. - Midnight

Fright Options

ACE-DAFE Phantom Fright Night is typically an informal event, with no advance registration required. This year, you have two options! Our friends at Great Ohio Coaster Club are welcoming ACE and DAFE members to attend their Ghostly Gathering event at member rates, and enjoy a group meal and ERT on The Steel Curtain. If you don't wish to register in advance or just keep your options flexible, you're welcome to simply show up at the park starting at 6 p.m. and meet up with your fellow members for the ITOTs (Informal Take Over Times) on various rides and haunts (see schedule below).

A Ghostly Gathering

Our friends at Great Ohio Coaster Club welcome ACE and DAFE members to attend their Ghostly Gathering at Kennywood (held the same day) at member rates. The event will provide early entry, a group meal prior to the park opening and ERT on The Steel Curtain. (30 minutes truly exclusive and another 30 minutes mixed in with those guests attending the park's Pre-Scare dinner. If all goes as planned logistically, the group meal will be the first in the setting of the End Zone Cafe, within Steelers Country at Kennywood. In addition, each registrant will receive a one-time use front-of-the-line pass to use at a haunt of their choice. In order to enter the park early and participate in ERT, you must be registered for Ghostly Gathering. Mail-in registration must be postmarked no later than Saturday, September 28 and online registration will be available until Wednesday, October 2.
