Dubbed the "largest Halloween experience in Washington," Fright Fest at Wild Waves Theme Park begins Oct. 4 with 25 rides operating in the dark of night and two bone-chilling haunted houses.

Thrill-seeking guests are invited to navigate the Chamber of Souls and a Zombie Apocalypse. On Friday and Saturday nights, the wave pool will become a dance floor with Halloween-themed music. New this year is the Playground 3D Haunted House.

There is also Booville, a scare-free zone for children ages 12 and under. Children can create spooky crafts, try their luck at navigating a maze and trick-or-treat.

Wild Waves Theme Park has teamed up with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Puget Sound and 18 Value Village locations to offer discounts to Fright Fest. All Value Village shoppers will receive a $5 coupon to Wild Waves Theme Park, limited to four coupons.

Big Brothers and Big Sisters will also have a donation truck at Wild Waves Theme Park from Oct. 18 to Oct. 20, offering coupons to Fright Fest in exchange for clothing donations. On Oct. 20, all “Littles” who come with their “Big” from the Big Brothers Big Sisters program will receive half-price admission.

Ticket prices are $24.99 for adults and $18.99 for children under 48 inches tall. Discounted tickets are also available at 45 select Safeway stores.

Wild Waves is located on Enchanted Parkway South, just off Interstate 5 in Federal Way. For tickets, costume guidelines and info on special promotions, visit
