This year also brings the return of several Fright Fest favorites, including the award-winning show "Love at First Fright," the world-renowned hypnotist—Susan Rosen, scare zone Necropolis, haunted house Mausoleum of Terror and scare-free areas including the Character Candy Trail. Fright Fest staple, the 500-pound inflatable gorilla will take his reign atop Sky Trek Tower while Six Flags continues to mourn the loss of "Tiny" the spider.
Fright Fest starts September 29th and runs weekends through October—including the addition of a Thursday night—with more fright at night. Also, this year Fright Fest is open later, to scare later. Hours are Fridays 5pm-11pm, Saturdays 11am-11pm, Sundays 11am-9pm, Columbus Day 10am-6pm and Thursday, October 25th 6pm-10pm. Fright Fest remains family-friendly until 3pm with the children's areas kept scare-free and a trick-or-treat trail in the Southwest Amphitheater.
