For 1997 Fright Fest continued to grow and become more elaborate. Many of the shows and experiences started to become staples from year to year being tweaked and updated.

This season's Hayride to the Unknown took on an Amazon theme with even more creative elements being made by the park as well as purchased props.

Larger than life creepy characters were part of the street entertainment, and the pieces of those costumes continued to be used as props decorating the park nearly 20 years later.
