Resurrected Annual Halloween Event Will Conjure More Scares Than Ever Before
VALLEJO, Calif. — September 6, 2022 — Six Flags Discovery Kingdom, The Thrill Capital of Northern California, today announced plans to offer an all-new and more intense and immersive experience for their guests this year during Northern California’s biggest annual Halloween event, Six Flags Fright Fest®. On select nights from September 24 through October 31, visitors to Six Flags Fright Fest will find a new bone-chilling lineup of experiences that will include five terrifying haunted attractions, three scare zones, two shocking shows, and seven supernatural transformations of park rides, in a new area of the park where no tombstone will be left unturned.
When the clock strikes six, an entire section of the park becomes infested with nightmarish monsters, ghouls, and zombies only accessible with a Fright Fest ticket package, separate from General Park Admission. Along with the terrifying frights, Fright Fest revelers will have access to rides that have been transformed for the season, lively entertainment, and special late hours at the event.
Ushering in the festivities is the new icon of the event, MAIM, who was brought back from the dead by her lonely husband only to discover that she is having too much fun as the afterlife of the party and with taunting those from the land of the living. MAIM holds court each evening at the Dead Man’s Party to unleash MAIMhem across Fright Fest.
During the daytime on Saturdays and Sundays, including Monday, October 10, through October 30, Six Flags Discovery Kingdom will offer guests Kid’s Boo Fest and Oktoberfest, included with general park admission. A family-friendly Halloween experience, Boo Fest includes a trick-or-treat trail, a new mirror maze, and Halloween themed animal shows. Oktoberfest brings new specialty food and beverage options to the park for guests to enjoy for a limited time.
Fright Fest, Kid’s Boo Fest, and Oktoberfest are included with a valid Six Flags Annual Membership or Pass. Additional fees apply and reservations are required for Fright Fest.
