Six Flags Shows No Mercy on the 25th Anniversary of Fright Fest

All Hell Breaks Loose Each Night

Six Flags Great America’s demon overlord, Nox, raises the dead for the most horrific Fright Fest in the 25 year history of this Halloween event. With six terrifying weekends, featuring six haunted mazes and six hair-raising shows, Fright Fest will show no mercy as hundreds of monsters descend on this scream park each night.

“Fright Fest is reborn again in 2016 for our biggest haunt yet with no mercy after 6:00 p.m., two new haunted houses and two spectacular new shows,” said operations director, Dameon Nelson. “All of this comes with your favorite characters including the lumberjacks, clowns, werewolves and the most complete Halloween event anywhere in the world!”

Fright Fest haunted house wristbands are available for purchase online or at the park and provide unlimited access to all six Fright Fest haunted attractions. Additional information for each haunted house and show can be found online at
