Fright Fest

Each Fall Six Flags over Texas transforms for Fright Fest, the park’s annual Halloween event. The entire park turns into a spooky version of itself, complete with decorations and scare zones, themed shows, haunted houses, contests, and more.

Be sure and read our Tips and Rules section before visiting.

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.

  1. I went to six flags on october 21 and 22 and saw a show around the Gotham Stage I don’t know what the show was called. It was extreamly loud and had goblins and scary monsters everywhere but the main person looked like a scary conductor or engineer he had very little makeup and was funny and kind. I got a picture with him both days I was there and he said he had remembered us when we showed him from the 21. I think they played limbo but I couldn’t see, I just loved the heavy loud music that they played because I love dubstep music and thats exactly what they played. I am 2 years away from being old enough to work for fright fest and hope I do because I love scary stuff. I know this sounds like an introduction but Im just wanting more experience. Thank You : )
