Six Flags Magic Mountain’s 22nd season of Fright Fest® will be the biggest and scariest in the Park’s history. The line-up of new haunted attractions includes three immersive and terrifying mazes, a new scare zone, more roving “scare-actors” than ever before, and an additional weekend bringing the total to 14 event days.
For five frightfully fun weekends, Six Flags Magic Mountain leaves no tombstone unturned to deliver what guests want most…the ultimate scare factor. Fright Fest will include a total of eight electrifying mazes, seven dare-to-enter scare zones, and roaming zombies around every corner. If that’s not enough, Six Flags Magic Mountain will add a sinister element to some of their monster coasters by turning off the lights, leaving riders to face their fears in total darkness – literally.
This year’s three new mazes incorporate state-of-the-art props, Hollywood-quality make-up, and story lines not meant for the faint-of-heart. Enter the world of Red’s Revenge…over the river and through the woods, to Grandmother’s house you go, but in this fairytale, guests and the wolf are hunted by Red and her demonic minions. Vault 666 is an old abandoned research facility where genetic experiments crossing humans with animals were once conducted and just recently the frightening secrets have been unearthed, exposing terror and mayhem from deep within the unsecured vault. Willoughby’s Garden of Darkness, a dense labyrinth of man-eating plants and evil apparitions, is inhabited by Innocence, the Willoughby’s youngest daughter, who is always looking for a ghostly playmate…so keep loved ones close.
Returning for its second year but with a new demented 3D twist is Toyz of Terror 3D, the defunct toy factory haunted by wicked windups, freakish furries and deranged dolls…and if that’s not enough to scare the wits out of even the bravest, guests are now forced to experience the madness in 3D terror. Also returning for year two is Total Darkness, where the lights at Magic Moments Theater have unexpectedly darkened on the anniversary of the demise of the longest running show, leaving unsuspecting guests to find their own way out of the winding black abyss with only their pounding hearts to guide them.
Back for a third year along with new terrifying additions, Willoughby’s Resurrected is a reincarnation of the Willoughby family’s beloved haunted mansion that includes hair-raising horror down long harrowing hallways and around each nightmarish-turn.
One of the largest and most popular mazes in Southern California, The Aftermath, returns in 2014 to strike terror into the brave souls entering a post-apocalyptic city inhabited by nomad warriors who rule with bone-crushing iron fists and the dead stalk the living. Also returning is Chupacabra, where guests come face to face with this elusive blood-thirsty creature as it petrifies the local Dia De Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) Festival.
Seven scare zones around the park leave guests nowhere to hide and screaming to get out alive. After entering Fright Fest through the gates of Demon’s Door, face the undead in Zombie Xing, reach the land of humanoid ravens and larger-than-life scarecrows in the new scare zone Ravenstitch, and experience a City Under Siege where insane and unruly comic-like characters run amuck. In Nightmares – A Twisted Fantasy, childhood fears and favorite bedtime stories take on a perverse twist, freak out on Exile Hill when unimaginable sinister souls appear without warning, and throughout the Wasteland, barbarian humanoids dare guests to enter the carnage of The Aftermath.
Spooktacular shows include the hypnotists, who put park guests in compromising scenarios in their hilarious stage show located in Golden Bear Theater, and the very popular VooDoo Nights, where Ghoul Rock has gone pop with a musical spectacular sure to entertain. Be sure to dust off your thriller moves and join in the fun in the Full Throttle Plaza.
For the little monsters, a Trick or Treat Trail and Halloween Crafts round out the activities during the day.
Now in its fourth season, the popular Fright Feast with the Willoughby’s continues to combine food and fright for the whole family.
New this year is the exclusive Monster VIP Tour which includes Fright Fest admission, parking, Fright Feast, and front-of- line entrance to the eight mazes and six pre-selected coasters for $200 per person. Each tour will be limited to fifteen guests and will include a guide. Tours for each night will be sold first-come, first-serve.
