Annual Event Delivers Devious New Haunted Attractions, Spooky Entertainment and Frightful Family Fun for All Ages
LOS ANGELES, Calif. — August 1, 2023 — Six Flags Magic Mountain, the Thrill Capital of the World, is set to make hearts race and pulses pound this Fall as the park celebrates 30 chilling years of Fright Fest. The electrifying lineup of attractions features two daunting new haunted houses taking the fear factor to new heights, the return of a fan-favorite haunted house, menacing new characters ready to send shivers down your spine, and the expansion of one of the park’s most popular scare zones. With 30 nights of frights running select nights September 8 through October 31, Six Flags Magic Mountain leaves no tombstone unturned this haunt season.
Fright Fest, presented by Snickers®, unleashes a total of eight bone-chilling haunted houses that will transport guests to a world of nightmares and seven dare-to-enter scare zones with nightmarish zombies lurking around every corner. For those seeking an extra dose of terror, Six Flags Magic Mountain also adds a sinister element to some of the park’s monster coasters by turning off the lights, leaving riders to face their fears in total darkness.
“We’re excited to be bringing an unparalleled experience of fear and excitement to Southern California in honor of our 30th Fright Fest anniversary,” said Six Flags Magic Mountain Park President Don McCoy. “We’re upping the scare factor with 30 nights of frights with the addition of two new haunted mazes, eerie new ghouls and monsters, the expansion of one of the event’s most popular scare zones, and so much more. Fright Fest is back and it’s sure to be a party to die for!”
