Fright Fest presented by SNICKERS®
Beginning September 29, Six Flags will unearth frightful fun for the entire family during our most popular festival of the year. Join us for Thrills by Day and Fright by Night! Before 4 p.m. enjoy Halloween-themed shows for kids, but once the sun begins to set, the ghouls come out to haunt the midways. Evening hours feature bone-chilling walk-through attractions, eerie shows and teeth-chattering thrill rides. Runs Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays plus, Thursday, October 25 and Columbus Day - Monday, October 8.
Amid thousands of mums, cornstalks, hay bales, cobwebs, oversized spiders and one giant gorilla, you can roam the haunted midways and encounter "Thrills by Day" to "Fright by Night" entertainment.
