NIGHT TERRORS

Strange things are always happening in Black Springs. The darkness began a few thousand years ago when a coven of witches traveled through the village and the villagers did not take kindly to having them around. Check out our new Haunted Attraction, Night Terrors, if you dare!

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.
  1. To check park operating hours, see our online calendar.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. If you get lost we will eat you.
  6. 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.
  7. Stop by Stroller Rental if you need a stroller, wheelchair, wooden stakes, silver bullets, garlic, or holy water.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. Pick up a show schedule at the small dark shed behind the food stand closest to Guest Services.
  11. 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.
  12.  Respect your loved ones: make all of your final arrangements in advance.
  13. To save time eat at non-traditional lunch and dinner hours.
  14. 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.
  15. 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?
No.

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 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.

Find out first-hand what guests have to say about Fright Fest…from some actual survivors

“The park is decorated with awesome Halloween theme and scary characters everywhere. Release the Beasts is an awesome kickoff event to the night. It’s a great time!”
-Gloria O., St. Louis, Missouri

“You can ride the roller coasters in the dark, which is wicked awesome! Plus there are some of the best decorations and costumes around everywhere you look.”
-Allie L., Columbia, Missouri

“During the day, the park is still family friendly and operates the same as any other day. But as night falls, the monsters come out to play. There are incredible actors who play fantastic roles to scare you and have a good time. And they’ll even stop to take pictures with you!”
-Andrew B., Granite City, Illinois

“All I can say is absolutely go, because it is fantastic! Clowns and monsters try to scare you, and the dancers in front of the theater are just amazing. Not to mention the cool decorations that completely transform the park!”
-Marcelo M., St. Louis, Missouri

“Just completely fantastic! The kids have a blast! They run, yell, scream, and laugh. It is so much fun! Put it on your bucket list, you will be glad you did.”

    Blind Fury

    MaZe Manufacturing has come up with the perfect answer for dwindling sales…toys that come to life.

    Workers began meeting untimely demises and visitors who came to tour the factory would disappear. Eventually authorities launched an investigation, but when they arrived, the factory was deserted and the doors were locked.

    Detectives pried open the back door of the factory and pressed on through a maze of swinging doors, moving floors, vibrating walls and confined spaces, all while blinded by flickering lights and disoriented by darkness. Eventually they ended up in a room with a conveyor belt where they discovered the bodies of the missing workers and visitors. They turned to run but the toys were everywhere; a sense of helplessness overcame the detectives as they realized there was no way out of this toy terror.

    Camp Killamore

    Once a popular spot for kids of all ages, Camp Killamore is now desolate and rumor has it that not everyone made it out alive.

    Counselor Josh was kayaking across the water when he was tipped over. Campers heard him screaming that something – or someone – was clawing at his legs. Suddenly, the screaming stopped and Josh disappeared into the dark waters. He never came back up. During a hike, Melanie, the other counselor was snatched and disappeared without a sound. Campers looked everywhere and eventually they came across a disturbing sight in the mess hall. Her head was found in the refrigerator, the rest of her body is still missing. Soon after, campers reported a dark figure dashing around. A few campers swear they’ve seen his bloated face and claim it to be grotesquely disfigured with blisters and scabs.

    As one of the last remaining campers, it’s up to you to find a way out of Killamore — before the figure finds you.

    The Slaughterhouse

    Mr. and Mrs. Drake’s butcher shop had the freshest meat in town, but they would never reveal their secret ingredient.

    The shop was near a college so many students would seek part time employment there, however, they never seemed to stay long. Parents called the college saying they had not heard from their kids recently so the Police started investigating. One night, an officer was patrolling when he heard a murderous scream coming from the butcher shop. Convinced something was amiss, he kicked down the door and headed to the back where lifeless bodies were hanging from the ceiling. “Congratulations officer! You’ve discovered our secret ingredient,” said Mr. Drake. They then grabbed and tossed him into the nearest chopper.

    Beware if you enter unannounced, Mr. and Mrs. Drake don’t like visitors and you could be tomorrow’s special.

    Blackout

    The old playhouse is where a young lady who dreamed of making it big took her final bow.

    One evening a group of teens slipped into the theater while the young lady was rehearsing and heckled her from the balcony. She was so humiliated that she ran from the stage and became tangled up in some cords, bringing overhead lights crashing down causing the theater to go dark. When the lights came on she was dead and the teens had vanished. The theater closed… windows were boarded up, doors dead-bolted, and power turned off. Years later, two teens went there at night on a dare. They crept through the back door when suddenly, music began to blare and a shadow ran across the stage as their flash lights went out. They tried to leave, but each doorway lead nowhere and the halls seemed unending. There seemed to be no way out. They could not escape the endless maze.

    Wrecker's Salvage: Deadly Detour

    Take a ride through this junkyard specializing in steel, iron, bone, ligaments and cartilage.

    Run by a backwoods family of bloodthirsty crazies, the junkyard has customers coming in looking for parts and leaving without limbs. The first reported incident happened years ago when customers disappeared among the scraps. Local citizens claim they heard screams that night followed by the sound of a compactor crashing down, snapping bones and crushing brains. When police arrived, there was no sign of the murders occurring. Everyone stayed away from the junkyard and other yards opened up to capitalize on the opportunity but none of them seem to last long. The locals are forced to venture into this deadly junkyard for parts and few have made it out in one piece.

    Are you brave enough to take the ride through this land of terror and escape?

    Night Terrors

    Strange things are always happening in Black Springs.

    It began a few thousand years ago when a coven of witches traveled through the village. The villagers did not take kindly to them, so they rounded up the witches and burned them at the stake. As they were burning, a thick black fog emerged and cloaked the town. A curse had been sent and the villagers soon discovered the consequences of being such unwelcoming hosts. After that day, the village and everyone in it were never the same. Gut-wrenching screams emerged every night. The dead no longer rested quietly in their graves. Beasts that had never been seen before became all too common and the black fog never did leave the village. Half of the villagers disappeared never to be seen again. The other half are stuck in time, doomed to face their fears every night for eternity and the terrors keep compounding. Nighttime in Black Springs is the last place you want to be, so beware and don’t travel alone, or better yet turn around now!
