I’m all about Halloween. It’s honestly my favorite holiday. I love dressing up, doing makeup, trick-or-treating and the Fall weather (well, Georgia hasn’t received the note about Fall weather yet). Needless to say, it’s a big thing in my house. In addition to all the Halloween fun we have at home, I also love all the Halloween events that go on. This past weekend we were invited to Six Flags Over Georgia to check out this years Fright Fest. We ended the night having a lot of fun. It is the perfect addition to your Halloween festivities. Want to go? Read below to know before you go!
I was invited to Fright Fest to facilitate a review. As always, my opinions are my own
Fright Fest at Six Flags Over Georgia
Fright Fest Haunted Attractions
One of the (if not the only) reason one would attend Fright Fest is for the Haunted Attractions. Since my son was totally against going into any of them (I wanted to call him a Uber to take him home 😉 ) we didn’t go into any. I was disappointed but it is what it is. Some things scare some people more than others. I did go in all of them last year, although they aren’t exactly the same and they do have a few new ones this year I can tell you I had a good time. I wasn’t scared when I went through, but I am totally aware of my surroundings and ready for whatever. Fright Fest 2018’s Haunted Attractions consist of;
- Madeline Mendoza’s Casa de Muerte
- The Witch’s Hallow
- Alien Abduction (new to Fright Fest)
- Evil Passage (new to Fright Fest)
- Camp Slasher (picture above)
I totally think they need a daycare. It would be cool to still be able to take the kids but be able to drop them off if it doesn’t suit them so the adults can still have fun. And then could do activities and such. But that’s my opinion. I also think there needs to be a spa with a daycare, so…yeah.
All of the Haunted Attractions are an additional fee to the general admission.
Fright Fest Scare Zones
One of the things you can do that is already included in the regular admission are the scare zones. Throughout the park you will encounter different themed area with an assortment of characters. I learned the night we visited that my son is afraid of clowns. He was not having it at all! If the actors notice that a child seems too scared, they won’t bother them. We even had one show us a card trick, which I thought was cool of him.
The different Scare Zones you’ll see this year are;
- Fear Rider
- Cannibal Carnival
- The Promaenade Theatre
- Boyou Burial Ground
- Mariner’s Cove
The Scare Zones weren’t really scary in my opinion, but like I stated, my son wasn’t feeling the clowns in the least. So it just depends. The thing about the Scare Zones is you have to go thru them in order to get to the rest of the park. There is really no way around it, so keep that in mind.
Fright Fest Shows and Entertainment
My favorite show that Six Flags Over Georgia puts on (and I mean throughout the entire year) is Dr. Fright’s Dead Man’s Party. I love the costumes, the make-up, the songs, dancing, literally everything. It’s such a fun show and the cast really gets into their part and execute it well.
Dr. Fright’s Dead Man’s Party isn’t the only show that Six Flag Over Georgia puts on. The also have a couple other shows throughout Fright Fest. One, that we just so happened to stumble upon was, Bad Bob The Bone Butcher. Totally family friendly! It was funny too, and by funny I mean that corny funny, which oddly enough tends to resonate with me. My son really like this show, it kind of eased the night with the clown fiasco. 😉
Six Flags Rides
You can still have all the same fun that you normally have at Six Flags (minus the water rides and Hurricane Harbor). If I was you I would get there when the park opens so you can ride what you want before all of the Fright Fest activities begin and before the crowds come.
DC Super Friends area is still open and you won’t find any of the questionable characters roaming around this area. So it’s the perfect place for some traditional Six Flags family fun.
Want to attend Fright Fest? You can get all your scares on selected weekends in October (as well as Monday-Wednesday on the week of Halloween). Hours vary per day, but they are open late. I’d recommend getting there when they open so you can make the most out of your experience. Six Flags Over Georgia is located at 275 Riverside Parkway, SW, Austell, Georgia 30168.
