This is Fright Fest like you've never experienced before. We've raised the undead to bring you new Haunted Attractions and special Halloween treats that you can only have at Darien Lake!
10 Haunted Attractions
We're unearthing 10 Haunted Attractions to keep you chilled to the bone. Every turn brings you face to face with your worst fears (and some you didn't know you had).
We're not stopping at Haunted Attractions. New shows , new dining, and new Fright Fest souvenirs await you too! After seeing our merry band of circus misfits, try some festive treats and pick up a few things to remind you of your Fright Fest experience!
We're giving away a pair of tickets to Six Flags EVERY DAY until the end of Fright Fest! Simply sign up for the park newsletter below and we'll INSTANTLY tell you if you've won a free pair of tickets to Six Flags, valid until the end of the 2019 Season. Enter once per day!
If you get lost, no one can hear you scream!
Only the bravest of souls dare to enter our haunted mazes. You'll be blindsided by darkness as you find your way through the labyrinth all while being hunted -- never knowing what is around the next corner. Are you ready to face your worst fears? Purchase of a fear pass or house ticket is required for entrance to mazes listed below.
There is no "leisurely stroll" during Fright Fest. Terror isn't confined to Haunted Attractions. The ghouls have spread into the streets to "greet" you as you make your way to your next fright. There are zombies and ghouls lurking in every corner just waiting for you. Stay Alert!
Passage of the Dammed
Do you dare walk through the passage of the soulless keepers?
See if you become a cog in the machine.
Can you conquer the Cajun curse?
Creep Show Freak Show
See what happens to life after the circus.
Never before has Darien Lake offered so many different live performances during Fright Fest. Our Fright Fest shows will leave you howling for more.
Big Top Freaks
A showcase of four entertainers that specialize in dangerous, scarring, grotesque, and hard-to-watch feats of physical endurance.
A new Halloween laser light show every Friday and Saturday night starting at 10:30 PM!

To check park operating hours, call us at 585-599-4641. Our staff of demons is dying to alert you of the extended operating schedule. Don’t hang up on them, they have caller id and will call you while you sleep. Or you can always check our online calendar.
If you insist on visiting on a date when the park is closed, we will have to insist that you stay as dinner.
Bring a jacket or sweatshirt for the cool evenings. We wouldn’t want you to catch a cold and infect our monsters.
Start your day at attractions farthest from the exits. Your best bet for a good time is to stay as far away from the exits as possible. Bad things happen at the exits. Good things happen in remote locations deep within the park.
Clowns smile right before they get you. Spiders don’t.
Review the special Fright Fest park map and guide. You may think you know where everything is, but you don’t. We rearrange everything all the time, just to make it more fun for us.
If you get lost looking for haunted attractions, we will find and eat you.
There are plenty of places to get that one final selfie. Our deadly photo bombers roam the park nightly.
No need to feed the monsters — they’ll eat you on the run.
Please enable the location tag for your Instagram photos….it helps the zombies find you faster. Please turn Snapchat Ghost Mode off too.....they like to watch you.
Fright Fest Survivor pickup. Zombies will be chasing survivors toward the exit at 11 p.m. on Friday and Saturdays, and 8 p.m. on Sundays.
Brains must be surrendered upon exit.

Are there any rides at Fright Fest that won’t scare me?
How many scary things happen during Fright Fest?
There is no way of knowing. Those who have tried to count were found in a corner, sobbing with fright.
I’m not afraid of Fright Fest. Is that okay?
Keep telling yourself that if it helps. The truth is something that will speak for itself.
Are Zombies real?
That is the kind of question that is going to set you apart from the others and act as a magnet for everything you will wish you’d never met. Fortunately for you there are dozens of free roaming zombies at the park would be more than happy to answer your question.
Which ride is the least scary?
The ride to the park.
How long has Fright Fest been going on?
It’s like time; there was never a start. It has always been there. A better question is: when will it end?
Will my boyfriend or girlfriend be eaten?
It depends how full we are after we finish eating you.
What are the current ticket prices?
