Fright At The Fort is Fort Knox's biggest fundraiser. All of the money raised from Fright goes to preserving the historic site. Much of the effort in transforming the fort into a house of horrors is shouldered by the Fort Knox staff and volunteers from surrounding schools, businesses and towns.
Roughly 10,000 visitors visit the spooky attraction annually. Last year's Stephen King theme brought in a record setting 15,050 visitors over the five Fright nights.
