After a hiatus last year due to COVID, Fright Fest at Six Flags Great Adventure is back with plenty of new attractions and scares for all ages. This year’s fest will boast six elaborately decorated areas, attractions for kids including the popular Trick-or-Treat Trail, 10 live shows, rides that’ll run in the dark plus nine haunted mazes for an extra fee. Dining, shopping, and games will also be open throughout the park during Fright Fest.
Here’s a rundown of what’s new this fall:
- Fright Fest Power Hours – On Thursdays in Sept., Wednesdays and Thursdays in Oct., plus Oct. 25 to 28, Six Flags will offer exclusive ride time on the park’s coasters and select rides in the dark, plus the added fright of indoor and outdoor haunted mazes at reduced prices. Attendance is limited. Tickets and reservations are required.
- September Fireworks – There will be nine nights of fireworks set to a spooktacular music soundtrack. “Frightworks” will run weekends in September as part of Member & Season Pass Appreciation Month.
- ‘Venom Gulch’ Scare Zone– Frontier Adventures will be transformed into a Wild West town abandoned following a mineshaft collapse.
- ‘Xpedition Dino: Survival’ Haunted Maze– The fun and educational Xpedition Dino tour will transform into a haunted maze where blood-thirsty dinosaurs have begun their prehistoric purge, and humans must try to escape alive. Fright Pass required.
- ‘The Lab’ Haunted Maze – This newly themed haunted maze will feature a secretive laboratory where mysterious and unlicensed experiments are the order of the day. Fright Pass required.
- Witch’s Brew–Six Flags will present storytime with the friendly neighborhood witch just for your littles.
- Jersey Devil Coaster– Learn the legend behind the world’s tallest, fastest, and longest single-rail coaster and ride it in the dark.
- Lil’ Devil Coaster– Adjacent to its hulking counterpart, Lil’ Devil will feature pint-sized coaster thrills for little kids. Debuting this fall.
Sponsored by Snickers, Fright Fest will also have Halloween-themed goodies like a Funnel Scream Cake or a Frightening Fanta Fizz drink. Six Flags and Coca-Cola are also offering augmented reality experiences featuring experiences that reveal a hidden “scare” within Fright Fest AR scenes.
Season Pass sales launch Monday. For one price, guests get unlimited visits to the theme park and Wild Safari Drive-Thru Adventure for the rest of the 2021 season plus all regular operating days in 2022 (some exclusions may apply).
