Six Flags Discovery Kingdom have announced plans to offer an all-new and more immersive experience for their guests this year during its annual Halloween event, Six Flags Fright Fest.
On select nights from Sept. 24 through Halloween, visitors to Six Flags Fright Fest will find a lineup of experiences that will include five haunted attractions, three scare zones, two shocking shows, and seven supernatural transformations of park rides, in a new area of the park where no tombstone will be left unturned.
When the clock strikes six, an entire section of the park becomes infested with nightmarish monsters, ghouls, and zombies only accessible with a Fright Fest ticket package, separate from General Park Admission. Along with the terrifying frights, Fright Fest revelers will have access to rides that have been transformed for the season, lively entertainment, and special late hours at the event.
Ushering in the festivities is the new icon of the event, MAIM. MAIM holds court each evening at the Dead Man’s Party to unleash MAIMhem across Fright Fest.
During the daytime on Saturdays and Sundays, including Monday, Oct. 10, through Oct. 30, Six Flags Discovery Kingdom will offer guests Kid’s Boo Fest and Oktoberfest, included with general park admission. A family-friendly Halloween experience, Boo Fest includes a trick-or-treat trail, a new mirror maze, and Halloween themed animal shows. Oktoberfest brings new specialty food and beverage options to the park for guests to enjoy for a limited time.
Fright Fest, Kid’s Boo Fest, and Oktoberfest are included with a valid Six Flags Annual Membership or Pass. Additional fees apply and reservations are required for Fright Fest.
“We are incredibly excited to unleash an all-new Fright Fest that ups the scare factor for our guests,” said Six Flags Discovery Kingdom Park General Manager Dameon Nelson in a news release. “Six Flags is about creating fun and thrilling memories, while providing an exceptional guest experience, and this year’s edition of Fright Fest will be no different. When you add the family-friendly offering of Kid’s Boo Fest during the daytime and the special food and beverage options that are part of Oktoberfest, there won’t be a better place to celebrate the Fall season in Northern California.”
