Over the years, we’ve learned a thing or two about making the most of a day at Six Flags. These tips will help ensure that you have a fun and memorable experience.
- To check park operating hours call us at (666) 666-6666. Demons are standing by. Or you can also check our online calendar.
- Visit the park on nights when it is closed! You won’t be able to get in, but we will have someone there to 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. It’s the safest place in the park! We promise.
- Stop by Stroller Rental if you need a stroller, wheelchair, wooden stakes, silver bullets, garlic, or holy water.
- 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 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 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 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. 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 safe.
We try to make the Fright Fest experience as confusing as possible to keep our guests in a terrorized, zombie-like state. However, for those who like to stare into the void, here are a few answers.
What are your operating hours?
For more information, see our operating calendar.
What are the current ticket prices?
We are pleased to offer a variety of gruesome ticket packages. See our tickets page for information and prices on nightly admission, season passes and other options.
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.
Aren’t you making up all this Fright stuff?
Keep telling yourself that if it helps.
Can I wear a costume or mask?
Yes! But with some restrictions! The ghosts, demons and zombies may be quite flattered to know there are others that think they’re cool. Just be sure your costume does NOT include masks, hoods or painted faces. And no props to accessorize your look – which means, no guns, knives, devil’s fork, canes, whips – or anything like that. Follow our Code of Conduct – so you must wear shoes and a shirt, but make sure the shirt is not offensive or vulgar in any way! Jokes aside — this is a safety issue. So please follow the rules and do not wear a mask into the park or 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 who would be more than happy to answer your question.
Which ride is the least scary?
The one 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 Fright Fest scare my parents?
They’re already scared.
What kinds of food does the park have?
It depends: do you prefer to be fried, baked or just eaten raw?
Will my boyfriend or girlfriend be eaten?
It depends how full we are after we finish eating you.
“A huge Halloween event with multiple mazes, scare zones and excellent entertainment!”

-Tyler C., Middleton, California
IF YOU GET LOST, NO ONE CAN HEAR YOU SCREAM FOR HELP.
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 while being hunted — never knowing what is lurking around the next corner.
Are you ready to face your worst fears?
Don’t let your love of money destroy you!
When Captain Bloat and his pirate crew set sail in search of the legendary Golden Skull, they didn’t know how the tides would turn. Searching day after day with no luck, the prized treasure remained elusive.
Greed and hatred ensued as the search for wealth turned the pirates against each other. Crew members were drowned, killed or eaten alive by sharks. The fewer the pirates, he better chances for more gold.
The Golden Skull was finally retrieved from the ocean’s depths. Captain Bloat embraced his prize, but soon his skin deteriorated right to the bone as the rest of the crew each became standing skeletons. As the last pirate lay dying, the Golden Skull slipped back into the ruthless seas.
The pirates are still haunting the area, searching for the Golden Skull. If you come by looking for your fortune, you may face the same fate.
The walls are aged and covered in blood. The underside of the smoke-filled canopy is washed in a dim, red, eerie light.
Welcome to the sideshow. Beware. Something sinister and evil lurks under the Big Top. The clowns have gone crazy and the smell of death is in the air. No one is safe. Enter if you dare.
Bunko is an angry clown. After being fired from his beloved traveling circus, Bunko turned from a loveable, laughable clown to a vengeful monster, bent on killing his former employers and anyone who got in his way.
And he did so during his very last performance. Using the sword swallower’s props, with his creepy clown laugh, he took down everyone in his path, including his fellow performers and any audience member in his way.
Years later, Bunko still torments traveling circuses, luring unsuspecting audiences into his deadly funhouse.
Victorian mansion for sale! Any takers?
This once stately Victorian mansion was the largest and most coveted house on the block. With an enviable parlor, library, luxurious rooms, and hall of portraits, the house also had a devilishly demented dungeon. House hunters beware because restless, vengeful spirits of the house are rumored to rise from the dead on the 13th hour with a thirst for unwelcome visitors.
The previous homeowners, Arsenic and Arania Nightmare rarely had visitors, and when they did, their friends were never to be seen again. To this day, neighbors report painful, agonizing screams, yet no one dwells in the house. Or are these evil twins still haunting the place?
Looking for a place to buy? You can tour this classic house and take heed, Arsenic and Arania may want you to stay. For good.
One chilly night, when Bruce, a scrapyard worker, was throwing garbage into a giant compactor, the blades froze. He shut the machine down to oil the blades to loosen then up. That’s when his boss, Gregory, came by.
Noticing the power was down and with no idea that Bruce was there, Gregory turned the machine back on. Bruce screamed when he heard the engine turn. The newly lubed blades cut through him like paper in a paper shredder.
Upset, Bruce’s mother, Lila, broke into the scrapyard and shut the power off. When the men couldn’t get their compactors working, they jumped in to oil the blades. Lila restarted the power, shredding 10 men to bits. Condemned and abandoned for years, the scrapyard is now haunted by the zombified employees.
In 1913, Dr. Currie founded his Asylum…
Within a few short years, it had developed a reputation for its unusual treatment methods. Despite countless claims of inhuman treatment, no solid evidence could be found to shut the facility down.
In 1954, a mysterious fire claimed many lives as it engulfed the asylum. Alice Currie, obsessed with caring out her father’s work, had a new facility build on the original foundation. Strange things began to happen. It was rumored to be cursed. Haunted by the souls of those that died in the fire.
On an eerie night in October of 1973 the entire staff and inmate population disappeared without a trace. The building was shuttered and fell into ruin. It’s been said that at night the insane comeback to life to roam the empty halls. This is where unspeakable things are said to happen. This is Dark Oaks Asylum, nightmare’s reality…
THRILLS AT EVERY CORNER.
SIX FLAGS SCARE ZONES ENSURE THE YOU NEVER CATCH A BREAK FROM THE FRIGHTS.
As you walk throughout the park, be prepared as you enter the next scare zone. You’re just trying to pass through, to get to the next ride or maze, but NO! First you must come face to face with elusive bloody-thirsty creatures as they hunt down their next victims. Hopefully you’ll make it through to tell the tale!
The Arachnid Shipping Company will ship your arachnids worldwide…
Welcome to Arachnid Alley, a once beautiful tourist area with restaurants, attractions, entertainment, and more…until the Arachnid Shipping Company accidentally delivered a rare and extremely evasive species of spider.
Matt, a local restaurant owner, believing the shipment to be new booths for his restaurant opened the containers. Thousands of spiders poured over each other, crawling all over the doors of the containers, swarming at Matt’s feet. As they crawled up his legs Matt opened his mouth to scream, but the spiders had covered his entire body and began to crawl into his mouth and down his throat before he could make a sound.
Within days, building and landscapes were covered in webs, festering with deadly venomous spiders. Feeding on the locals and tourists the arachnids began to grow to enormous sizes. Anyone unlucky enough to survive the attacks have started to transform into disfigured spider like creatures themselves, living in excruciating pain as venom courses through their veins.
Visit if you dare…
Causing a man’s death for a knapsack does not bode well for a pair of unsavory characters.
In 1883, Hensley Copper was brutally murdered by a pair of thugs named Benson Heeley and Renaldo Barnish. The pair were on a bender after drinking too much rye whiskey, saw Hensley and wanted his knapsack.
They unknowingly killed Hensley, thinking by shoving him to the ground would just make him unconscious. Hensley was dead though. He hit his head on a rock when he fell that was it.
The thugs opened the knapsack and opened a bottle thinking it was booze. After each taking a swig, they died. Rather than a potion to live forever as Hensley thought, it was just the opposite.
Fast forward to today. Benson and Renaldo, along with the man they didn’t really kill, haunt Mt. Rotting Cemetery.
To this day, the three are not happy being in a living dead state, yet they are all bound to one-another. They despise each other, and what makes matters worse, they don’t like you either.
Terror in the trees…
When the sun sets and the fog rolls through the edge of the woods, hike quickly and take your leave. The workers of Sawmill Hollow are about to clock in for their shift.
If you are foolish enough to stay, don’t get lost, chainsaws whirl and rip thought the fog. Tree limbs or your limbs, these lumberjacks don’t care…They’ve pledged themselves to the Wendigo, a cannibalistic evil spirit with an insatiable hunger for flesh and blood. The Sawmill Hollow loggers are savage and brutal killers always looking for their next victim. They keep hands as trophies, adorning the walls of their workshop. To be cleaved by an ax, would be mercy compared to the sadistic sawyer’s mill.
Stick to the path and keep an open ear for the rev chainsaws in the dark…it may be the last sound you hear.
GHOULS? ZOMBIES? DANCING MONSTERS? COME SEE IT ALL.
