What Type of Attractions Can You Expect at Fright Fest

If you are like to lost your stomach on roller coasters and be scared out of your mind by gruesome vampires and warlocks that follow you around, then Six Flags Fright Fest is for you! In addition to the thrill you get from the rides themselves, Six Flags transforms into one big haunted house with scare zones and 16 spine chilling haunted attractions including hundreds of zombies and monsters, six scare zones, six bloodcurdling mazes and four terrifying live shows. Here’s the breakdown for you.

Haunted Attractions: These are themed haunted mazes. You’ll be blindsided by darkness as you find your way through the labyrinth all while being hunted — never knowing what is around the next corner. ** There is an extra fee required for all Haunted Attractions.

Scare Zones: Throughout the parks are various themed scare zones where zombies and ghouls are lurking among other creatures from the beyond. Expect dozens of free roaming ghouls throughout specific sections of the park.

Shows: These are live performances with specific times.

Rides: Yes Six Flags has heart pumping thrilling rides every day, but during Fright Fest, they escalate the volume with special touches you don’t want to miss. Expect coasters that deliver intense thrills by day to amp up with themed scares at night.

New for 2018:

  • Alien Abduction, the newest haunted attraction at Six Flags Fright Fest. Ever wonder where people go when they are abducted? Find out if you dare.;

Six Flags Fright Fest’s Ultimate Scare Highlights

ZX-1: 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 be infected with a horrid abomination.

Witch’s Hollow: There is an unnatural force that controls all that the woodlands hold. Do not be deceived by the tranquility of this place for it was created to lure you into The Witch’s Hollow.

Camp Slasher: Rain Burn Camp, better known as Camp Slasher, is open this Halloween and campers will get lessons in dissection that you’ll never forget.

Madeline Mendoza’s Casa de Muerte: Do you dare follow the trail of gore to uncover the mysteries of the Blood Stained Bride?

Dr. Fright’s Dead Man’s Party. This is a popular show at the Crystal Pistol Music Hall.

Six Flags Fright Fest with Young Kids

Six Flags Over Georgia Fright Fest with Young Kids means tamer daytime thrills, and more fall themed activities than terror related attractions, although I did scare myself silly walking through an empty box.

We were previewing the daytime thrills and happen to walk through one of the nighttime pop-up scares. It was empty, but my son made something fall. I screamed…loud, and you heard everyone outside draw in their breath.  Sometimes the thought of something is scarier than the actual event.

All in all, we found fall a great time to visit 6 Flags Over Georgia. For one, it’s not so hot. Here are five other reasons to visit the Not So Scary activities at 6 Flags Over Ga Fright Fest with young kids.

Five Six Flags Halloween Activities for Young Children

Costumed Looney Tunes Characters. Kids love to dress up, and I love seeing them in costume. Children 12 and under are encouraged to wear their costume to the park for 6 Flags Over Ga. Fright Fest. They’ll be in good company. The Looney Tunes characters around the park are donning their favorite costumes too, so it’s a great time to take some holiday themed photos with your favorite Looney Tunes friends.

Free Candy. Free candy is always a plus, I mean isn’t that why we trick or treat? We scored a few treats while running from ride-to-ride in Bugs Bunny Boomtown from some very friendly pirates. Inside the Bugs Bunny World Theater, there are even kid friendly spooky stories being told.

The Lickskillet Harvest Festival. Head to Whistlestop Park for a Harvest Festival. There is a corn maze, pumpkin painting, arts and crafts, and just playing on the playground.

The Rides. Of course you come to Six Flags Over Georgia mostly for the rides. During Halloween, Monster Mansion is a must. If you’ve never been, it’s filled with mostly silly fun monsters.

Harley Quinn Spinsanity is another good one, located in Gotham City. We were there early, so there were no lines and the kids just stayed on and spinned time-after-time-after-time.

And then there are the roller coasters too. Start kids off on the Joker Funhouse Coaster in Bugs Bunny Boomtown, then work up from there.

Pin This:

Six Flags Fright Fest at Six Flags Over Georgia is not for the faint of heart. From haunted attractions to freakish scare zones where the undead can pop out at any time. And then there are the heart pumping rides that always add a little something extra for the scare season.
