FRIGHT FEST 2018 : New England's Most Terrifying Halloween Event
Do the scariest stories tell you everything up front? NO. Does the jack-in-the-box pop out on the first turn of the handle? NO. Well, we're not telling you everything...yet. Good things come to those who wait. And by "good" we mean "horrifying."
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 2018 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?
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!
Never before has Six Flags offered so many different live performances during Fright Fest. Our Fright Fest shows will leave you howling for more.
We're known for pulse-pounding coasters that deliver intense thrills all season, but these rides ramp up the fear during Fright Fest.

To check park operating hours call us at (413) 786-9300. Demons are standing by. Or you can also check our online calendar.
There is no re-entry after 6:00 p.m. — even for Season Pass Holders — so plan accordingly.
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 near the main gate or next to Fireball.
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.
Stop by Stroller Rental if you need a stroller, wheelchair, garlic or holy water.
Weapons are not allowed in the park so please leave your wooden stakes and silver bullets 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 Guest Relations or any retail store.
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.
What are your operating hours?
Fright Fest hours are listed in the calendar above. You may also view our operating calendar.
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.
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 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.
