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.

Participating Arlington hotels operate a trolley-type transportation system during the entire Six Flags Over Texas season. When making hotel reservations in Arlington, ask if your hotel is participating in the trolley service.
To check park operating hours call us at (817) 640-8900. Demons are standing by.
Visit the park on nights when it is closed! You won’t be able to get in but we will have someone there to eat 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. We’re waiting. It’s the safest place in the park! We promise.
Stop by Stroller Rental if you need a stroller or wheelchair.
Weapons are not allowed in the park so please leave wooden stakes, silver bullets, garlic and holy water at home. It will be more fun for us 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 confuse 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 thing happen in remote locations deep within the park.
Respect your loved ones: make all of your final arrangements in advance.
To save time be eaten 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 run away 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 eaten safe.

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?
