Fright Fest presented by SNICKERSÂ®
This year Six Flags Great Adventure invites you to join us for Fright Fest's 22nd year, with family-friendly Thrills by Day and even more Fright by Night!
Six Flags Great Adventure’s Fright Fest Presented by SNICKERS® promises family-friendly “thrills by day,” while an amped-up “fright by night” will deliver more Zombie Zones, Terror Trails (additional fee required), Halloween-themed shows and more screams than ever before. Now seven weeks long, Fright Fest begins Sept. 13 and runs weekends through Oct. 27.
Terrifying Fright by Night Entertainment
After 6 pm, the festival transitions to “fright by night” as nearly 200 zombies are released into the park. This fall, the park will introduce a new terror trail – Total Darkness presented by 3 MUSKETEERS® Brand, a blackout maze. Lakefront will be home to a new scare zone, Straw-Man Stalkers, with blood-thirsty scarecrows. Terror Trail favorites like Voodoo Island, Asylum presented by Dunkin' Donuts®, Wasteland presented by MILKY WAY® Brand and The Manor presented by göt2b®, now indoors, will return to terrorize guests. In total, Six Flags will offer six haunted walk-throughs and four scare zones.
Nighttime shows, known as “monstertainment,” will include the return of the iconic Dead Man’s Party presented by McDonald's®, Ghoulmaster’s Ghosts presented by TWIX® Brand, The Awakening, Circus of Thrills presented by DOVE® Chocolate and more. Terror trails require an additional fee, while all scare zones and monstertainment are included with park admission.
Fright by Night is not recommended for children under 12 and those who scare easily.
Chilling Thrills by Day Entertainment
By day, families can enjoy favorites like the Trick-or-Treat Trail, Professor Slithers’ Creepy Critters animal show and Spooky Kooky Magic Show plus the new Monster Maze, a corn maze including some of Halloween’s most famous characters. At the Wilderness Theater, guests can enjoy the new Doc Snooker’s Halloween Time Machine, a zany show for all ages.
