*Please do not enter this address into a GPS. Follow the directions below to make your way to the front gate for park entry.
Go northwest on I-16, to I-75, to I-285 North, to I-20 West. Follow signs to the Six Flags exit. Do not pick up hitchhikers. They are not who they appear to be.
Go west on I-20. Take exit 47 or 46A. Y’all in trouble now.
Six Flags is located on Interstate-20 East. Take exit 46. As you get closer, the vampires are salivating.

Travel east on I-85 to Georgia, to I-285 North, to I-20 West. See the “Men at Work” sign? Those are no men. Take exit 47 or 46A.
FROM GREENVILLE, SOUTH CAROLINA
Go southwest on I-185, to I-85 to Georgia. Continue on I-85, to I-285 West, to I-20 West. Take exit 47 or 46A. If you were thinking clearly, you’d have never gotten this far.

It’s always a good idea to avoid downtown Atlanta traffic. The busiest times are between 6 and 10am, and 4 and 7pm. Bring whatever charms you believe will protect you.
For up-to-date traffic information in the Atlanta area, be sure to check the Georgia Department of Transportation’s website. For up-to-date information on ghost and ghoul activities, you’re outta luck.
COBB COUNTY TRANSIT (CCT)
CCT offers a shuttle service to the park. Egad. . .whatever you do, don’t look into the driver’s eyes. For a detailed, up-to-date route schedule, visit the CCT section of the Georgia DOT website. Route 30 serves the park Monday through Saturday.
MARTA also offers a shuttle service to the park. MARTA? Wasn’t she burned at the stake years ago? For a detailed, up-to-date route schedule, please visit the MARTA site, or call (404) 848-5000.
Georgia 511 is a free phone service, hosted by the Georgia Department of Transportation. Real-time traffic and travel information is provided 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The service offers information for all state routes and interstates and gives estimated travel times in metro Atlanta. Callers can speak to live operators (for October only, undead operators available) to report incidents or request assistance, or connect to other services such as transit partners, airports, tourism information and 511 systems in neighboring states.
If, at any time, you find yourself at risk – or the thought of Fright Fest is too much to stomach – turn around. Return home, if you can. Better scared than sorry.
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 770-739-3400. 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 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 shed located behind the food stand closest to Guest Services don’t worry. It probably just means that someone is being safe.
In all seriousness for those with young kids, Bugs Bunny Boomtown is not open on Friday nights and after 6:00 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. Many areas of the Park are not recommended for children or those with timid spirits after 4:00 p.m.
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. Specific pricing for Fright Fest tickets and season passes will be posted shortly. Check back soon!
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 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 was great! If you enjoy haunted houses and costumes, you’ll love it.”
–Mark B., Athens, Georgia
“It’s kind of like a big haunted house mixed with an amusement park. One of the best shows I’ve ever seen in my life took place there as part of fright fest. It’s awesome!”
-Jorge Y., Rome, Georgia
“It is scary, fun, and an altogether frightful blast! With all the goblins lurking around, the music, and the best roller coasters ever, who wouldn’t want to go?”
–Phyllis D., Atlanta, Georgia
“It is like a great big Halloween party. There are tons of scary attractions for older kids and adults alike.”
–Odell T., Macon, Georgia
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?
Deep within the Southern Cemetery nearby the Dark Harvest, there lies the Boregard Bayou swampland, today known as the Bayou Bloodlust. Legend has it that Voodoo priestess Evelyn Laverdiere use to inhabit these swamplands and would sacrifice wandering victims to the evil spirits of the Loa so she may be protected by the beasts of the swamp, including the dreaded werewolf creature known as the Rougarou.
One night, the inhabitants of a nearby village set out to end the Voodoo priestess’s reign of terror. The villagers found her in her home sleeping and drug her out into the water and drowned her within the very swamp she loved. Unfortunately, the villagers did not understand black magic. Evelyn never died that night and rose from the marsh to curse the villagers who tried to kill her. The townsfolk within the village ran for their lives, but the curse spread and the once beloved and prosperous village of Boregard Bayou, became the Bayou Bloodlust.
It has been 200 years since that horrifying night, and the Bayou Bloodlust has since opened as a tourist attraction for those hoping to see the swampland where the nightmarish stories they had heard about, come to life. Will you escape the swamp or suffer the Voodoo curse?
Deranged madman, Dr. Fright, continues his unethical attempts in raising the dead. Now, experience his gruesome workstation in 3-D.
Dr. Jones was a friendly family physician in a small town in the outskirts of Atlanta, Georgia. His patients trusted him and he would often make house calls or invite patients over to his house for complimentary services. The only problem, however, was that after a patient visited Dr. Jones, they were never heard from or seen again. The townspeople grew suspicious, and the police were called to the house to investigate. Everything seemed clear, but one officer noticed a locked door leading down to the basement. He kicked in the door and walked down into the dark, empty room.
Neighbors feared their lives and moved away and townspeople began calling him Dr. Fright. Newcomers who moved to the area had no idea about the doctor’s secret. Every October, Dr. Fright holds what seems like a friendly neighborhood Halloween costume party. Local townspeople have no idea that the costumed zombies and ghost are actually real- his creations crafted from murdered patients. However, unsuspecting guests don’t realize it’s also a way to lure new people to his house so they can be the next experiment in the death lab.
When we recently began excavating and prepping the site for Six Flags Over Georgia’s newest attraction, we unearthed relics of a once thriving railroad city. After researching the local history, it was discovered that the Terror Train travels eerily close to the remains of Bloodtown, home to the Roscoe family, the greedy railroad tycoons that ruled the area.
All aboard for what may be the most terrifying ride of your life. Terror will find you here, as you travel on a locomotive along the outskirts of a decrepit ghost town, aptly dubbed “Bloodtown.” Learn of the legends that haunt the very path you will travel and the legends of a family that refused to leave after the town died.
When the train depot shut down more than 70 years ago, businesses closed and Bloodtown was left abandoned by everyone – everyone except for the remaining members of the Roscoe family. Those that board the Terror Train will travel along the abandoned rails that travel near the outskirts of Bloodtown, past the home of the Roscoe family, the empty storefronts and shuddered train depot. Your conductor will explain the stories and legends of the town that many refuse to even speak of among friends. You may even get a glimpse of members of the Roscoe family – a glimpse that may very well may be your last.
In the early 1900s, after many years of wedded bliss, Thomas’ wife, Deborah, was starting to get sick. Weeks passed and her health declined so badly she was rushed to the hospital. Exactly twelve hours after she was admitted, the doctors proclaimed her dead. Thomas, however, wasn’t convinced. He insisted she was still alive and refused to leave his love. His protests grew so adamant, the orderlies had to pry him away kicking and screaming from his wife’s body.
In order to alleviate even the smallest portion of his grief, Thomas insisted that his wife be buried in their backyard next to her garden. Years passed and eventually, Thomas died as well. With no further family to speak of, his house was foreclosed and sold at auction. The property was picked up by a group of theme park developers whose first order of business was to demolish the house and tear up the backyard.
During construction, a tractor inadvertently pulled up Deborah’s long forgotten coffin. When it crashed to the ground, it promptly broke in half sending the lid flying off its hinges. The body was gone but the signs were unmistakable – Thomas’ wife had been buried alive. And, even worse for everyone involved, eventually she found a way to escape.
The end of days is near. A deadly infection is rapidly wiping out mankind.
Mutations are forming within the genes of the human race causing everyone to become a horrid abomination. No one is safe as long as this virus is spreading!
An antibiotic has been developed by an underground company to fight off the spreading plague, and may be your only hope for survival. However, acquiring this cure is much easier said than done. Prepare yourselves for the journey for your life as you will fight your way through the sewers and streets in the middle of mobs of infected and military personnel desperately trying to keep order. Chaos and death have consumed the park and they hold no biases on who they will claim next! Will you get to the cure before the infection gets you?
Axis Arena will transform into a campground for all seeking refuge from the zombie apocalypse. But when the undead overtake the fledgling camp, it may become the most dangerous place you can go.
Enter into the world of the unknown, where everything is dark and you can’t even see your own feet or hands in front of you. It’s PITCH BLACK and the curse of the old Six Flags Over Georgia demons and ghosts are lurking – but you won’t even know you are running into them, until it’s too late.
The only thing that will save you from the horrifying screams will be your own voice to help lead you through this dark dungeon. But will you escape the 49 years of haunted past?
THRILLS AT EVERY CORNER.
