FRIGHT FEST® at Six Flags America Maryland’s Most Horrific Halloween Event
Thrills by Day and Fright by Night with 24 FrighteninglyFun Attractions
Six Flags America is preparing to unleash the biggest Halloween event in the region. Fright Fest®, 2014 promises 24 haunted attractions including seven all-new frightful features. In addition to the park’s signature collection of thrill rides speeding through the dark of night, Six Flags America is introducing five new Halloween attractions for 2014 – the park’s Biggest Fright Fest ever!
When the sun is up during Thrills by Day, the park will have a festive fall harvest feel with lots of friendly ghosts and ghouls for kids of all ages. With a total of nine family-friendly attractions and three all-new children’s attractions – Monster Mash Bash; Kids Halloween Dance Party, and Stage Fright featuring the magic of Joe Romano, there are plenty of thrills for the entire family. Guest 12 years and younger are invited to enjoy the park in costume and take part in the Halloween Kids Costume Contest held each Saturday and Sunday at 5 p.m.
When the clock strikes 6 p.m. the park goes dark – as in creepy, crawly, scary dark. Beware of The Awakening, which launches Fright by Night and transforms the park into a wicked hunting ground for the undead. This year Fright by Night boasts fifteen attractions with five all-new shows and events: Voodoo Curse, Necroville, Blood Moon: A Stunt Slaughter, The Awakening and Stage Fright Featuring the Magic of Joe Romano.
“Fright Fest is one of our favorite events,” said Rick Howarth, park president. “We’re able to showcase the amazing talent at Six Flags America and provide our guests with the ultimate terrifying experience. We’ve been in pre-production for our 24 shows and events since early this year. With five new attractions including Voodoo Curse featuring the dreadful Voodoo Queen, who will tell your fortune in exchange for your soul, we are taking terror to an all-new level.”
Fright Fest opens Saturday, September 27 and runs every Saturday and Sunday until November 2 with special Friday openings on October 17, 24 and 31 at 5 p.m. for Fright by Night only. On select night the park will remain open until Midnight, please check the website for hours of operation. Many of the Fright by Night events are rated “two skulls” and are not recommended for guests under 13-years-old.
