Each year Six Flags over Texas celebrates the month leading up to Halloween with Fright Fest. The entire park is transformed into a spooky version of itself, complete with decorations, new themed shows, haunted houses, contests, and more.
Thrills by Day, Chills by Night
During the daylight hours of Fright Fest, Six Flags over Texas offers its standard family fun appropriate for all ages. Kids can even trick or treat in Looney Tunes “Spookytown” and participate in a costume party.
However as night falls, The Awakening ritual releases hoards of zombies, ghouls, and other maniacal beasts into the park with one mission: terrifying guests. Specially designated Scare Zones have the highest concentration of terror. The park recommends taking kids 12 and under home before nighttime during Fright Fest.
Rage of the Gargoyles
Shock Wave got a VR upgrade for 2016 with an jet-flying, alien-themed movie. During Fright Fest an all-new 3D, virtual-reality experience will be available as guests attempt to destroy demonic gargoyles to regain control of the city.
Six Flags over Texas offers several haunted houses and mazes during Fright Fest. Admission to each is a separate charge in addition to admission. If you plan on visiting multiple haunted houses, buy a haunted house pass for a substantial discount.
The haunted houses for 2016 are:
- Asylum – themed as an mental institution
- Blackout – a dark, haunted maze that will challenge you to escape
- Piggy’s Blood Shed – slaughterhouse-themed haunted house
- Zombie Infestation – zombies will be after you behind each turn
- Cirkus Berzerkus – evil clowns lurk in the world’s scariest circus
Fright Fest Tips and Policies
- Guests 12 and over cannot wear costumes, masks, face coverings, or full-face makeup to Fright Fest for safety concerns.
- Weapons and props of any kind are not allowed into the park.
- Don’t touch the roaming characters in the park or in haunted houses (they’ve already been told to not touch you).
