It’s almost time for Six Flags Fright Fest, and it is better than ever! Six Flags Over Georgia—the Thrill Capital of the South—has 20 spine-chilling haunted attractions waiting for those who dare to enter Atlanta’s largest and most horrifying Fright Fest!
“Fright Fest at Six Flags Over Georgia is home to the scariest and largest collection of hair-raising attractions in the region,” said Park President Dale Kaetzel. “A fully immersive in-park experience, along with our unparalleled collection of heart-pounding monster coasters with the lights turned off takes fear to a new level. No one does Halloween like Six Flags.”
When my kids were little, we never made it out to Six Flag’s Fright Fest, even though I really wanted to! If the truth is told, it was me! I wanted to go, but every year I would talk myself out of going. Why? For lack of better words, I was a CHICKEN! Yep, I said it! Nothing more to it! Even though I would watch scary movies and think I am going to do it this year, I just couldn’t bring myself to go. I pretty much used the excuse that my kids were too little. They can’t be exposed to this.
Well, now they are older and that excuse just can’t be used anymore. Last year I made a promise to myself that I WOULD face it my fears and go. I had managed to talk my husband into going so I felt better about it. After our experience last year I knew I had been missing out on something fun! Yes, fun! Even though the scare factor is high, it is SPOOKTACULAR! Seriously! I regret that I was such a chicken about it in the past, and you better bet I will not miss a single one in the future.
The ambiance and music that fills the park sets the mood and prepares thrill park enthusiasts for an experience to remember. From the decor to the actors, Six Flags did not leave out one single detail. They put you right into the action! It’s like feeling as if you are walking through a scary movie, but you get the benefit of returning home to your family, unlike the poor souls on the big screen!
One of the things that Six Flags Over Georgia can boast about is how Fright Fest is one of the “biggest and scariest Halloween events in the entire Southeast.” With that being said, that means that visitors can expect the fear factor to be at an all-time high time! What you may not realize about Fright Fest is the amount of time that goes into planning such a season. Six Flags actually starts planning for Fright Fest early in the year. It takes a team of people to create an experience that will not only scare thrill park goers but also leave them wanting more!
This year, Fright Fest is turning up the terror with four new attractions, and the return of guest favorite scares, including:
· Piggy’s Blood Shed, an all-new haunted maze, where bloody butchers are seething mad and out for revenge;
· Dismantled, a new scare zone, illustrating the end of the world as we know it, ransacked by “The Wanderers” who roam the land preying on the fearful;
· Seeds of Samhain, an all-new scare zone, hosting souls of the dead, beckoned and transformed into a festering pumping patch; and
· The return of Alien Abduction, a 6,000 square foot haunted maze, where evil aliens are living, working, breeding and carrying out the most horrific experiments imaginable on human victims.
During Fright Fest, the park will host the second annual 30-Hour Coffin Challenge. A test of extreme endurance, six coffin dwellers will battle for their chance to win $600 in cash and prizes. The contestants must spend 30 hours in a wooden casket and compete in unnerving elimination challenges. Registration for the 30-Hour Coffin Challenge is now open.
