Fright Fest Presented by SNICKERS®

Thrills by Day and Fright by Night at Fright Fest! 

It's thrills by day and fright by night at this year's Fright Fest Presented by SNICKERS®. Join us beginning Saturday, September 19 for all the fun! 

Fright by Night

Once the sun goes down, the night begins to take over and transforms the park. The midways become full of the living dead, ready to scare the pants off of anyone who dares to cross their path. Our lineup of exclusive and nail-baiting haunted houses will be sure to leave you screaming. If that's not enough 'scare' for you, check out our thrilling roller coasters, in the dark! Watch as the park transforms from "Thrills by Day" to "Fright by Night." 

Thrills by Day

The daytime hours are family-friendly and offer the chance to grab some candy from your favorite Looney Tunes characters in the trick-or-treat trail, catch a few shows and experience all of the fall festivities with tyke-sized thrills!

Take in some of our shows 

Fright Fest is full of amazing entertainment. Some of our shows start as early as 1:45pm, grab a Fright Fest guide when you arrive to help plan your day or check out the Six Flags app!

Character Candy Trail 1pm-3pm

Don't miss out on this fan-favorite our character candy trail. See your favorite Looney Tunes characters in their Halloween costumes and collect candy through-out trick-or-treat trail! 

Brave your favorite rides 

We have 3 children's areas open for your little thrillseekers during the day at Fright Fest which will all close at 5:00pm in order for younger guests to exit before scares begin! 

Have them take on Bouncer in Kidzopolis or Lady Bugs in Hometown Park. Please remember that these areas do close early in order for families to exit the park before ghouls take over at 6pm. Additionally, children's areas will be closed on Fridays.

Snack on a funnel cake or hot chocolate 

There are so many traditions in fall and funnel cakes and hot chocolate are a can't miss. After some coaster riding or trick-or-treating, grab a funnel cake and sip down some warm cocoa!

Tips for Your Visit

  • Plan your day, once the sun goes down the ghouls come out. This is 6pm on most nights but ghouls are out nearly all of Friday evenings. 
  • Purchase your haunted house wristband in advance and save time at the park.
  • Only children under 12 are permitted to wear costumes at the park. We leave the scaring to our monsters and ghouls!
