What’s Next for Six Flags Fright Fest?
Written By: GN
Since 1996, Six Flags Fiesta Texas’ staple Halloween event Fright Fest has served thrills to park guests. It features live productions, scare zones, and haunted attractions. Its popular live show Monster Mash Bash won “Best Theme Park Show” at The Golden Ticket Awards for ten straight years.
However, like many other amusement parks last year, Six Flags had to adjust its lineup in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. It introduced its new scaled-down Halloween event, Hallowfest.
With state pandemic protocols being relaxed recently, Fright Fest is making a highly-anticipated comeback. Here’s what we currently know about the ghostly return.
The 2021 Fright Fest is chock-full of delights with their day and night activities. Kids can come dressed in their best Halloween costumes and participate in fun happenings in the park.
When night falls, “all kinds of vicious, blood thirsty creatures come out in search of their next victim.” Seems like Six Flags Fiesta Texas will pull out all the stops, with live shows and haunted attractions rising all over the park soon.
Even more, you’d be able to ride their 10 roller coasters in the dark with some spooky additions! You can book Fright Fest passes on select dates from September 10-October 31. You can get your tickets here.
The Hallows Spirit
Another big question is how many from last year’s changes will be staying. For Hallowfest, Six Flags Fiesta Texas consulted with epidemiologists to ensure that their event is up to par with pandemic guidelines.
As a result, their indoor shows and mazes were discontinued and the 6-feet social distancing rule have to be followed at all times. Masks are also required and hand-sanitizers are available throughout the park.
Despite this, their outdoor mazes like Wicked Woods and Apocalypse are showstoppers and their live shows like Street Cirque and The Emergence filled the streets with spectacular sights.
It’s safe to say that Six Flags will still retain some of these pandemic measures this year, but it will definitely not stop the fun. In fact, preparations are well underway, with the park announcing that they’re looking for “singers, dancers, actors, musicians, specialty acts” for their 2021 season.
But that’s not all the frights that Six Flags Fiesta Texas is cooking up for you. They recently teased on Twitter a new haunted attraction that will be open to the public on 2022.
Construction is already ongoing for this new attraction, with a sign saying “the gates of fear will open” hung over the barricade.
In their recent Rollercoaster Rodeo event, a parade of steampunk-themed characters walked around the park with a balloon emblazoned with ‘2022.’
While there are no specific details yet, many are speculating that this attraction will be yet another feature for future Fright Fests.
