Lodging Information
FROM NEW JERSEY

Take NJ Turnpike to exit 7A, I-195 east to exit 16A or Garden State Parkway exit 98, I-195 west to exit 16, then one mile west on Rte. 537 to Six Flags. Ignore the strange man on the side of the road with the sign: “No job. No food. Please help.” He bites the hand that feeds him.

FROM PHILADELPHIA

Take the Ben Franklin Bridge to Route 38 east. Persist in your journey, while you ponder Ben’s words: “To err is human; to repent divine; to persist, devilish.” Take NJ Turnpike north to exit 7A to I-195 east or Route 295 north to I-195 east. Exit at 16A, then one mile west on Rte. 537 to Six Flags.

FROM NEW YORK

Take the George Washington Bridge, Lincoln Tunnel or Holland Tunnel to NJ Turnpike south to exit 7A. Shaking like a leaf? It’ll all be over soon. Proceed on I-195 east to exit 16A, then one mile west on Rte. 537 to Six Flags.

FROM JERSEY SHORE

Route 138 West or Garden State Parkway exit 98, to I-195 west to exit 16, then one mile west on Rte. 537 to Six Flags. That’s not Bruce Springsteen on the side of the road. That’s his diabolical double.

FROM MASS TRANSIT

NJ TRANSIT offers express bus service to the park from New York City, Newark, Camden and Philadelphia, PA. through the 308 and 318 lines. Look out for Cub Scouts with hairy chests and faces. Local bus service is also available on the #307 bus line from Freehold, NJ with connections in Freehold from other bus lines. For a current operating schedule, call (800) 772-2222 in New Jersey. Outside of New Jersey, call (800) 626-7433 or (800) 772-2287 (TAT).

For GPS devices that do not recognize our 1 Six Flags Blvd. address (the goblins play games), please try “599 Monmouth Rd.” and follow the signs to Six Flags Great Adventure.

Tips for Enjoying Fright Fest

To check park operating hours call us at (732) 928-2000. Demons are standing by. Or you can also check our online calendar.

Visit the park on nights when it is closed! You won’t be able to get in but we will have someone there to meet you. Come alone, and don’t tell anyone where you are going.

Bring a jacket or sweatshirt for cool evenings. We wouldn’t want you to catch your death of cold! Store it in one of the lockers located in the small dark shed behind the food stand closest to Guest Services.

Our park is a smoke-free facility. This is a safety measure — smoking attracts demons and werewolves, and you really don’t want to do that. Smoking is allowed in designated smoking areas only. You won’t be safe from demons and werewolves, but at least everyone else will.

If you get lost we will eat you.

When arriving, note the location of the exits and other places that might be helpful when hiding from zombies, flying creatures and blood-sucking fiends. Look hard. One really good place to hide is the dark shed behind the food stand located closest to Guest Services. Just close your eyes and come on in. It’s the safest place in the park! We promise.

Stop by Stroller Rental if you need a stroller, wheelchair, wooden stakes or holy water.

Weapons are not allowed in the park so please leave silver bullets and garlic at home. It will be more fun for you if you are completely defenseless.

Review the park map. You may think you know where everything is but you don’t. We rearranged everything since your last visit. Just to make it more fun for you.

Pick up a show schedule at the small dark shed behind the food stand closest to Guest Services.

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.

Respect your loved ones: make all of your final arrangements in advance.

To save time eat at non-traditional lunch and dinner hours.

Last year we surveyed a few of the survivors following their escape from the park. Before we ate them they recommended that the most important thing to ensure that you have a fun, safe evening is to wear a hat. They also told us that screaming is your only defense. The louder you scream, the safer you’ll be.

Expect to hear lots and lots of screaming. If you hear any of it coming from the shed located behind the food stand closest to Guest Services don’t worry. It probably just means that someone is being safe.

Frequently Asked Questions

Fright Fest

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 your operating hours?

Fright Fest hours are listed in the calendar above. You may also view our operating calendar.

What are the current ticket prices?

We are pleased to offer a variety of gruesome ticket packages. Specific pricing for Fright Fest tickets and season passes will be posted shortly. Check back soon!

Are there any rides at Fright Fest that won’t scare me?

No.

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.

Can I wear a costume, mask, or makeup?

No. While you may enjoy making fun of our ghosts, demons and zombies by dressing up like them, doing so is clearly insensitive to their feelings. They can’t help the way they look and you ought to be ashamed of yourself for even asking the question. Jokes aside — this is a safety issue. If you wear a costume or mask into the park our monsters will get confused and might accidentally start eating each other instead of you.

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 would be more than happy to answer your question.
