  • Three all-new daytime shows including the mind-bending illusions of Las Vegas headliner Aaron Radatz, and great family sing-a-longs. 


At 6 p.m., for those brave enough to stay, the demons, monsters, freaks, and frights of the underworld are unleashed on the mortal souls and they will show no mercy. Here is this year’s Fright by Night lineup at Six Flags America.

  • Five Premium Haunted Attractions – Returning to Fright Fest are fan-favorites: Total Damnation, Twisted Fairy Tales, Haunting of Hall Manor & Voodoo Curse, plus NEW! Reaper Railways: The Show Must Go On haunted train ride;

  • Three all-new frightful shows, including the return of Dead Man’s Party, more diabolical than ever before.

All Fright Fest shows, scare zones, and world-class thrill rides are included with park admission, Memberships and Season Passes. Five premium haunted attractions require an additional fee. Fright by Night is not recommended for children under 12 and those who scare easily.


Six Flags, Coca-Cola®, and Fanta® have teamed up to deliver four innovative augmented reality experiences to park guests this year. Each of the featured experiences will reveal a hidden “scare” within the Fright Fest-inspired AR scenes that allow users to create spine-shivering, sharable content. These web-based AR experiences will be available by scanning onsite QR codes, Six Flags drink bottles, or the Fright Fest logo. Guests can also visit the Fanta® photo booth experience inside the parks, which puts users into the middle of a zombie attack.


For a limited time only, guests can also enjoy special Fright Fest food and beverage offerings like the Funnel Scream Cake featuring SNICKERS®, a Fright Fest favorite, and the new Frightening Fanta® Fizz drink made with Fanta® Orange, candy corn syrup, whipped cream and sprinkles, available in a limited-edition souvenir cup.
