Things to Do for Adults and Kids at Six Flags Fright Fest

It's Spooky Season!   So you know what that means?   The Thrill Capitol of the South Six Flags Over Georgia is back with the scariest Halloween event, Fright Fest, and the not-so-scary event, Kids Boo Fest! 

By day, Six Flags hosts a Halloween Festival called Six Flags Kids Boo Fest with festivities for the whole family.  But when the sun starts to set, the freaks start coming out!

Six Flags brought the new festival, Kids Boo Fest, so all families can enjoy it during the day since Fright Fest is not recommended for children under 12.

Six Flags Kids Boo Fest features daytime fun for little monsters with Halloween-themed activities like trick-or-treating, pumpkin decorating, storytelling, a costume contest, games, shows, and more.

In addition, families can enjoy the park's 23 family and kid-friendly rides between the festivities before the sun goes down and Fright Fest begins.

Six Flags Kids Boo Fest is included with general admission.

Since my daughters are older teens, we did not visit the Kids Boo Fest; however, I am happy that Six Flags now has something for the whole family to enjoy.

Again, my girls and I returned to Six Flags Fright Fest to relive our fun, scary moments a few years back.

Is Six Flags Fright Fest Scary?

To me, it seemed tamer since our last visit.  But, maybe since I'm older, scary stuff doesn't bother me since I know it's not real.

My oldest daughter (16) wasn't fazed by the scare actors either; however, my youngest daughter (15) and her friend had some screaming moments when characters popped out at them when they weren't looking.

This year, Fright Fest has enhanced its spooky decorations, reimagined the haunted houses, frightening new scare zone, two new live shows, and the return of guest-favorite haunts, performances, and attractions.

New highlights from this year's Fright Fest lineup include: 

  • The House on Holiday Hill: The sequel to its predecessor, Haunted Holiday, which premiered in 2021, this upgraded haunted house now features an evil twist on five beloved holidays: Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, St. Patrick's Day, and Easter.

  • Trolls: Located in the park's Scream Punk District, this new scare zone takes guests below the troll bridges, where danger lurks around every corner.

  • Doc Snooker's Halloween Time Machine: This comedic live show reaches back through the mist of history to bring some of the world's most menacing monsters to life.

  • Monsters of Rock: Enjoy energetic live performances of monster-themed rock songs.

Returning haunted houses include:

  • Devil's Eden: This old house was left empty for years, and the new owners are not so happy with visitors on two feet. (My favorite)

  • Serial Neighbor: Things seem a bit strange next door. Only certain guests are brave enough to go check it out.

  • Zombie Labs: Visit the park's one-of-a-kind zombie containment center.

  • Carnival of Chaos: Where guests are dying to have a good time. (My daughters' favorite)

Additional scare zones throughout the park include:

  • Garden of Evil: This once serene resting place has become overrun by creeping plants and an evil that sometimes cannot be seen.

  • Cannibal Cookout: Guests can learn the secret to a special barbeque recipe. Need a hint? It's all about the meat.

  • The Coven: These witches have sworn to protect their sacred sanctuary. Anyone who dares to trespass and desecrate this forbidden ground will be burned at the stake.

  • Insectuous: An illicit lab has spawned interbred insects that make the skin crawl.

Live shows and Halloween-themed attraction overlays include:

  • Dr. Fright's Dead Man's Party: Guests are once again invited to Dr. Fright's annual Dead Man's Party, a bash for zombies to scare the living daylights out of mortals with drop-dead performances of classic Halloween hits.

  • Bad Bob the Bone Butcher: Deputy Leon P. Jones is in charge of the rotten coffin of Bad Bob. It's Old West slapstick slaughter when Bad Bob comes back to life and has a bone to pick with Jones.

  • Disco Train: All aboard the Six Flags Railroad! Celebrate Halloween with an energetic train ride through some of disco's most monstrous hits.

Six Flags Fright Fest Tips

  • If you don't have a membership, skip the lines by purchasing your tickets online.

  • Fright Fest is an additional fee, so purchase those tickets online. You'll have a barcode on your phone to show to an attendant at each haunted house, so you don't have to worry about losing your Fright Fest ticket.

  • Buy the Express Haunted Attractions Pass to skip the lines for the haunted houses. Those lines get very long, and the wait times can be over 30 minutes.

  • You are not allowed to wear a costume if you are an adult or teen. Only kids 12 and under.

  • The Fright Fest scare actors do not touch you and only pop out from hidden places. If the scare actor sees you are frightened, they will leave you alone.
