Six Flags offers thrills and chills this fall with its new HALLOWFEST

Ready to scream?

The spooky season is right around the corner, so ghosts and ghouls should prepare accordingly. 

HALLOWFEST, Six Flags Great Adventure's all-new celebration, will run from Sept 18 through Nov 1, which means there are plenty of opportunities for creepy, kooky and spooky shenanigans. During the day, little monsters can enjoy seasonal scream-worthy attractions: inflatables, a Trick or Treat Trail, a hay bale maze (in one direction) and other fun activities. At night is when things get a little more serious (perhaps a time better suited for the tweens and teens): Creepy fog, eerie lighting and sinister music will transform the family attraction into a real-life horror movie and thrill-seekers can ride their favorite the dark!

“Our annual Fright Fest celebration is one of the most anticipated Halloween events of the season. Given the current environment, we are taking special precautions this year and offering our guests a version that is still scary, provides lots of thrilling rides and Halloween fun, and most importantly, is safe for our guests and team members,” said Six Flags President and CEO Mike Spanos. “We will operate HALLOWFEST the same way we have operated our parks all summer, with daily temperature checks and face masks required for guests and team members prior to entry, social distancing and enhanced sanitization measures.”

Learn more about the event online as well as the safety protocols that will be in place (face masks are required for those 2 and up, no indoor attractions will operate, etc.). Make sure to check out other cool fall activities like apple picking or pumpkin picking and enjoy a scary movie marathon (but not too scary)!
