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 (413) 786-9300. 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 Coca-Cola cart closest to Guest Relations.
- 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 small dark shed behind the Coca-Cola cart closest to Guest Relations. 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 Guest Relations or any retail store. Not the small dark shed behind the Coca-Cola cart closest to Guest Relations.
- 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, 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 small dark shed behind the Coca-Cola cart closest to Guest Relations, 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 section 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?
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 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.
Find out first-hand what guests have to say about Fright Fest…from some actual survivors
“It is a ghoulishly fun time! Six Flags does a great job of decorating the park for Halloween. It’s nice that little kids can enjoy the park before dark while the older kids and adults who enjoy being scared can hang around after the sun goes down. That’s when the real ghouls and monsters come out to play. The actors do a great job!”
-Brenda A., Springfield, Massachusetts
“Six Flags is completely transformed into a Halloween wonderland. The whole park is decorated, there are great haunted houses, and the actors walking around dressed as zombies and scary clowns complete the experience.”
-Gilbert H., Easthampton, Massachusetts
“At night, all of the attractions change to a Halloween theme. My personal favorites were the hay rides and the scare zones.”
-Agatha C., Ware, Massachusetts
“I love the specialized Halloween-themed performances where performers dressed as zombies, ghosts, and other horror creatures wander the park to frighten guests.”
-Yolanda D., Westhampton, Massachusetts
“Six Flags gets decked out with Halloween themed decorations, props, spooky characters, and scary shows for a frightening good time!”
-Christian C., Agawam, Massachusetts
“I loved that the whole park was decorated, and the fog machines and zombies walking around everywhere turn Six Flags into one big haunted place. You will want to come back!!”
-Mike M., Springfield, Massachusetts
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?
Hells Gate State Park has fallen to the recent zombie uprising. Hunt or be hunted.
Deputy Lynch was patrolling the grounds of Hells Gate State Park. A few campers had reported hearing vicious growls that were perhaps a rabid animal, or worse, the return of the undead. Ever since the outbreak years ago that was quickly eradicated, every ranger has undergone training and is issued proper weapons for routine zombie hunting.
Lynch stopped by the Outfitters Shop to grab some gear. Suspiciously, all the windows were broken, ammunition boxes thrown about and footprints led towards Lake Take-A-Dip, where he could hear the rumbling of screams off in the distance. Suddenly, a fist punched through the wooden wall and soon another from the other side. Running out of the cabin and into the nearby lodge, Deputy Lynch could hear a horde running behind him. As he hid inside, he held his breathe hoping the creatures outside would leave… until he turned his head to see his boss, Ranger Redmond, freshly bitten and slumped over. Deputy Lynch, like many of the staff of Hells Gate were once our trusted hunters… but now, they are the hunted.
The zombies will have their revenge.
Around the turn of the 20th century, Lord Vincent Fostus, a very eccentric tycoon moved away from the east after rumors of a dreaded curse ruined his family name. He built a large mansion on the top of the hill in the western town of Tombstone TerrorTory, where he enjoyed entertaining his elite and eclectic group of friends. In no time, tragic accidents started to occur regularly, and although many people loved Lord Fostus, many blamed him for the downfall of the town, until one day he was murdered despite his efforts to be protected by his house’s many secret passages and rooms.
Paranormal historian Ellie Crane took the trip into Tombstone TerrorTory to collect some artifacts for further study back east. Pushing herself through the overgrown vines in the garden graveyard, she made her way into the root cellar that lingered with the smell of rotting flesh and climbed up into the formal dining room, where plates hovered and glasses clinked in mid-air. Soon, a small girl in a glowing pink dress came skipping by. With a sudden scream, she pulled Ellie through a wall and into a cave that led her past an art gallery, where not only eyes followed her, but the portrait of Lord Fostus himself seemed to gesture to the gaming parlor next door.
It was obvious that the house staff was holding a wake in their master’s honor, celebrating a magnificent life, and an even better death.
Step right up! You won’t believe your eyes! Freaks, fools and ghouls surround you as you travel around this side show of sickly sights! Wearing special glasses, the effects of this strange attraction will surprise you around every corner!
The warped organ chimes could be heard cranking from over the hills. Beams of colorful lights broke through the fog calling from the distance for any curious courageous folks to visit. With tickets in hand, Ben, Corinne and Andrew pulled open the curtain and stepped inside the carnival tent. Immediately they were greeted by the ringmaster who blasted a whistle and a line of crazy clowns paraded out to greet their new guests. Although it seemed like a fun comical time at first, as they ventured deeper amongst the alleys of freak performers, the scenes became more twisted and tragic whilst their clown guides smiles got bigger and more menacing. By the end of the show, our friends have not necessarily chosen to run away with the circus, but the circus has definitely run away with them.
Greg Seymour saw a flyer stuck to his Jeep seeking a few recruits to join a group of paranormal enthusiasts on a nature hike, just a few miles up the road. When he arrived at the meeting point, a crowd of other curious and anxious travelers were corralled into groups and packing on gear that clearly showed this adventure had more danger than Greg anticipated.
As they traveled down a weathered path, the group found themselves standing in the midst the old town of Happy Valley – a simple community known for its mining, farming and power plants. Toxic barrels were still piled up and thrown about. Suddenly, a scarecrow leaped down from a tree and dragged one of the party deep into the cornfield surrounded by dilapidated shacks. Greg sprinted away to hide near the railroad tracks up ahead. Now separated from his party, Greg crawled into a tent set up on the side of a mine shaft and waited. All he could hear was the faint rustling of leaves and his own heartbeat.
Finally, when he thought the coast was clear, he peered out of the tent. Happy Valley was indeed the home of peculiar wildlife in these wicked woods.
THRILLS AT EVERY CORNER.
