OCTOBER 8-10, 15-17, 22-24 and 29-31
VALENCIA, CA – Six Flags Magic Mountain once again transforms from a “theme park” to a haunted “scream park” for the 18th season of Fright Fest Presented by SNICKERS®, Southern California’s most thrilling Halloween experience.
Six Flags Magic Mountain offers 12 days of terrifying haunted mazes, roaming zombies, the scariest clowns on the planet and spooky shows. If that’s not enough, Six Flags Magic Mountain will add a “twisted” element to some of their monster coasters by turning off the lights, leaving riders to face their fears literally in the dark. And, the Fright Fest exclusive that coaster fanatics wait for all year … the transformation of one of the largest, most celebrated coasters in the world, Colossus BACKWARDS!
Beginning October 8 and running for four frightfully fun weekends, Fright Fest leaves no tombstone unturned to bring guests the ultimate sensory overload for every range of fear. For the little monsters, a Trick or Treat Trail, Kid Scaryoke and Looney Tunes Harvest Festival in Bugs Bunny World round out the activities.
This year’s Fright Fest will feature a new maze and a scare zone, including BITE II, where sexy and sinister werewolves are out for a bite in this nest of the undead; and Camp Gonnagetcha, a new scare zone located in Rapids Camp. Hypnotists Mark Yuzuik and Suzy Haner will put actual park guests in compromising scenarios in their hilarious stage show located in Golden Bear Theater and Dr. Fright’s Roc Zombie, a Halloween-themed Rock-and-Roll show, will take place every day during Fright Fest on the High Sierra Stage. Be sure to dust off your thriller moves and join in the fun as the popular Spooktacular Street Party returns for the second year. Plus, a new dance area for the dearly departed, The Six Foot Under Club, will debut in the main gate area.
Heckles and Twitch, the infamously popular, irreverent and off-beat clowns, will perform their crowd-pleasing brand of menacing dark humor three times a night in Gotham City Backlot.
Back for their 18th year of applying award-winning make-up, Scott Ramp and his “Scream Team” will transform 300-plus Fright Fest actors into ghouls, zombies, vampires and demons nightly.
Fright Fest hours this year are from 10:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. on Friday’s and Saturday’s, and 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Sunday’s.
