Fright on the Mountain
Six Flags Magic Mountain brings thrills by day and chills by night

Handy and Halloweeny, Fright Fest will scare up big fun this month at Six Flags Magic Mountain, and there is something for everyone.

The facility transforms from a "theme park" to a haunted "scream park" for the 17th season of Fright Fest. There will be 13 days of haunted mazes, roaming zombies, scary clowns and spooky shows. A "twisted" element will be added to some of the monster coasters by turning off the lights -and Colossus will run backwards.

Beginning Saturday, Oct. 3 and running for five weekends, Fright Fest will bring the ultimate sensory overload for every range of fear. For the little ones, a Trick or Treat Trail, Kid Scaryoke and a Costume Contest in Bugs Bunny World round out the activities.

This year's Fright Fest will feature two new mazes and a scare zone, including BITE, where sexy and sinister werewolves are out for a bite; Lector's Slaughterhouse, where guests will enter the world of the celebrity butcher taking wretched revenge on the bowels of society; and Aftermath Alley, a new scare zone featuring a civilization that haunts the living in a post apocalyptic world. Heckles and Twitch, the infamously popular clowns, will perform their menacing humor three times a night in Gotham City Backlot.

Scott Ramp and his "Scream Team" transform 300-plus Fright Fest actors into ghouls, zombies, vampires and demons nightly.
"Fright Fest offers something for everyone," said Jay Thomas, park president of Six Flags Magic Mountain and Hurricane Harbor.

"During the day, families can enjoy games, crafts, a costume contest and Trick or Treating with your favorite Looney Tunes character. And at night, our guests have come to expect the area's most imaginative and truly terrifying Halloween experiences and our two new mazes and scare zone are not going to disappoint. We are excited to bring a new level of fright to our nighttime event. The creative team at Six Flags Magic Mountain has put together another scary twist to our Fright Fest product. Our guests will be amazed."

Extended Fright Fest hours this year are from 10:30 a.m. to midnight on Friday's and Saturday's, and 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Sunday's. For additional information, current operating days and hours, and to purchase a ticket, visit or call (661) 255-4111.
