Fright Night (Students Version)

Fright Night (Students Version)

The official behind-the-scenes look at Fright Night. This article is the opinions of several Santiago High students and is not biased on whether the night was good or bad. “The Scariest Night of the Year” in the eyes of different students perspectives, to the stalls that were set up, to the scary monsters who chased after you if you looked them in the eye.  

Tour

Let’s take a tour, shall we? As you walked in, parents and staff greeted you and gave you a wristband upon presenting your ticket. Anyone without a wristband got kicked out. To the left, where the Shark Shop is, there was an assortment of food trucks; the right held two mazes and stalls and two giant monster statues in the quad. 

The Mazes

Both are set up in the B building. Each maze is scarier than the other. You enter the maze, grabbing onto your friends, unsure of what to expect; as you waited in line, you hear the screams of who was inside echo through the building. The air is cool; you see silhouettes of tall, dark figures behind the long curtains, the floor is covered in fog, and everything is dark. As you walk in, monsters jump out and attack you. However, the actors do not touch you, and you are not allowed to touch them for both parties’ safety. In the … maze, towards the end, you turn around to see two guys behind you, one with a knife, and are told to run at the count of 3.. 2.. 1… BAM, you hit the doors open and run out laughing as you momentarily take in what happened. 

Monsters

The “purple” monster

Now for the monsters, the “purple monster,” as kids referred to him, was unanimously agreed to be the scariest monster. He would chase after you with his little chest, and no one dared get close enough to find out what was inside. We had other monsters as well, which did a fantastic job of scaring the life out of you. 

 

 

Stalls

Then there were the stalls. There were multiple pumpkin eating, the glitter stall, ping pong, the photo club’s donut booth, and so on—each with its creative twist and extraordinary games.  

Students Thoughts: 

“I keep looking down and looking back up, and then someone runs at me, so you know, just don’t look down, guys,” William Phillips (9)

“It’s so scary,” Dakshaayani Pooventhan (9)

“I’m about to lose my voice, but overall kinda sh***y, I expected a little bit more,” Jasmine Radillo (9).

“Big improvement from last year; I say they stepped it up in how they’ve been scheduling it; right now, I’d just say keep it more organized. A lot of our club has been trying to sell Polaroid photos, which they’ve been using the ticket system. Still, our food has barely been selling with just normal cash, so all I say is make it like a united system so there’s not much division in it,” Ethan Araiza, president of the photo club.

“This year Fright Nights going good, we have a huge turnout, and all of our games and mazes are good this year, and I’m just so excited cause everyone’s having such a good time,” Ryan Zanganeh.

“I think fright nights are going well, and everyone’s having a lot of fun and celebrating Halloween spirit,” Gwendolyn Jessup said.

“I think fright night’s having a good turnout; a lot of people are showing up, and it looks like everyone’s having fun, and the mazes are doing great,” said Maya Bal.

“I think it’s wack, it could’ve been better,” Yarely (9).

“I think that fright night it’s chill, but the mazes should’ve been scarier,” Kayleigh Morgan (9).

“It’s okay, I don’t know. My friends keep ditching me, so that’s not fun, but it’s alright,” Brooke Bebe (9).

“It was kinda awful,” said Lazuli (9).

“Fright night’s kinda goofy, but it’s okay,” Jane (9).

 

Although some students had different opinions than others, I noticed everything depended on the experience they had. Friends with friend groups that were genuinely there to hang out and have fun enjoyed it the most and felt more comfortable than the people who were in a group of people who already had a dire outlook and didn’t go with friends. Fright Night wasn’t Knott’s Scary Farm, but it was a night to remember for being arranged by Santigo’s students and staff. If you didn’t have the most fantastic time this year, I suggest coming with people who you always have fun around, because those are the people that will make your experience good or bad. Whatever is projected around you is what you feel. If you’re discouraged from coming next year from some comments, don’t be!! Going to the mall, park, restaurant, or anywhere is made fun of by the people you go with. Bring those people and be ready to be scared.
