Last night, hundreds of teenagers flocked to Founders Heritage Park, seeking a scare at the youth Fright Night.
The drug and alcohol-free event was hosted by YMCA, Nelson City Council and the Theatre of Terror for 15-18-year-olds.
Elaborate sets and professional actors lurking in the dark and chasing people raised many screams.
This year included the addition of new character Misery the Killer Clown.
Hannah Campbell was among the first group of victims to go around the park.
“It was so scary, my heart is pounding,” says Hannah.
