6 Flags Fright Fest is All That & So Much More!

Halloween is almost here, and for those of us living in the Northeast, this is a great time of year to visit Six Flags Great Adventure, located in Jackson, NJ, about an hour from New York City and Philadelphia. Each Friday, Saturday and Sunday through Halloween Night, the park’s annual Fright Fest will be providing visitors with thrills by day and fright by night. Come spend an October day exploring the scores of rides in eleven themed areas, including four that cater to small children. 

When the clock strikes 5:30 p.m., the park transforms into a festive and creepy wonderland. Park employees dress up as ghosts, ghouls and goblins, emerging from shadows and lurking in spider-webbed covered corners, trying to scare the living daylights out of you. These creatures can be truly frightening, so young guests are given “ghoul repellant”, a festive whistle that they can blow to stop scary beasts in their tracks.

Expect long lines and crowds. Fright Fest has an almost cult-like following, so your patience will be tested as you wait for up to an hour for many of the rides and attractions.

Families applaud this theme park’s customary pay-one-price admission. But be prepared to pay an additional $5 per person for the most popular Fright Fest activities, the chill-inducing Escape from the Asylum Terror Trail and the Demented Forest Terror Trail.

Other Halloween festivities are included in your admission price, including the crowd pleasing Dead Man’s Party, which features 10 dancing zombies, and the equally entertaining The Ghoulmaster’s Ghosts, a haunted dance party Michael Jackson tribute.

With something for the entire family, even hard-to-please teens, a bone-chilling time should put you all in the spooky spirit of the season.
