What’s the theme this year?
There is no one set theme at Nightfall. When Nightfall began back in 1990, the theme centered on Dr. Hyde and the mayhem carried out by his associates in the 1800s town of Nightfall. However, with the demise of Dr. Hyde, Nightfall was free to create stand alone experiences with no underlying theme or relationship between one haunt/show to the next. That freedom has allowed Nightfall to bring unpredictable and fresh entertainment to its guests with every new year!
