Six Flags Over Georgia Fright Fest: Thrills By Day & Fright By Night
A special thanks to Six Flags Over Georgia for providing us with free admission so our family could enjoy a frightening day at Fright Fest!
I am a horror movie fanatic, Halloween is my holiday and I love all things frightening and spooky. I have had a mild obsession with horror since I was a young girl and it is something that has stuck me as an adult. As a mother of three I wanted to find a place where I could embrace my love of horror with my family and enjoy some fun times! So the family and I visited Six Flags Over Georgia this weekend for the super creepy Fright Fest and it was an amazing experience! Forget about the traditional haunted hayrides and spooky neighborhood decorations… if you want a good night of scares, this is the place to be! Six Flags Over Georgia has truly outdone themselves this year and they have put immaculate detail into every single decoration, prop and monster roaming the grounds. The entire park has been transformed into the most frightening place you will ever step foot into. Even if you don’t enjoy rides, there is enough entertainment and activities going on at the park to entertain you for an entire day. We were there from about 2 and left around 10:30p.m. and could have easily stayed until midnight!
During the daytime the park is family friendly and you are able to enjoy all of the less frightening thrills around the park. The decorations are absolutely stunning and every square inch of the park has been touched with a bit of fright. I just loved all of the detail that was put into the scenery and the decorations were so realistic!
There is an area of the park where you can watch a real life freak show and there are actual performances. After binge watching American Horror Story Freakshow, this was a pretty exciting attraction for me! There are some very frightening clowns that wonder this area as well, one if them wielding an electric chainsaw, so beware!
Remember those scary haunted hayrides you use to enjoy growing up? Well Six Flags has officially taken it up a notch and created something far more frightening… the Terror Train!! Those that board the Terror Train will travel along the abandoned rails that travel near the outskirts of Bloodtown, past the home of the Roscoe family, the empty storefronts and shuddered train depot. The conductor will explain the stories and legends of the town as you travel through a real life massacre! This was so much fun and they did a really great job acting out frightening scenes and put on a great show for the audience. I don’t want to give away too many spoilers, but I can guarantee you will get spooked a few times and it will take an unexpected turn!
The Uprising: Nightly Call of the Dead! Each night at Fright Fest, you can find the Baron making his nightly call to the dead at the Crystal Pistol. This is when the park transforms into a whole new world of frightening. As Baron makes his nightly call to his denizens of the dark and declares war on more innocent souls to add to his evil army, a crowed is unleashed into the park, free to roam among the living! While visiting different areas of the park, you will notice a different theme at each section and certain types of dead creatures wondering around. They aren’t there to just stare at, these frightening creatures lurk at every corner and are spooking guests left and right! I don’t know was more fun, getting to interact with all of these scary creatures or watching others get spooked by them! It was all around great fun and I have never witnessed so many people captivated by all of the great activity going on.
We were able to get some upclose looks of these frightening creatures and I am amazed at how much effort went into creating them! I mean these people didn’t just throw on a rubber mask and call it good… they were in full costume, head to toe, and so much detail went into makeup. All of the zombie and witches had contacts, all of the clothes were dirty and/or covered in fake blood, and the costumes were high quality. I have been to quite a few haunted hay rides and haunted houses growing up and I have to say that Six Flags Fright Fest has got to be my favorite of all time!
There is so much more that I was not able to capture, I swear the time just slipped away as we enjoyed this frightening attraction. Make sure to visit the Fright Fest Frights page to view a full list of all of the event and attraction at the park. You can enjoy this attraction for 15 terrifying days, September 26 – November 1, it’s thrills by day and fright by night. The park is family-friendly by day but Six Flags Over Georgia turns up the terror at dusk! Fright Fest at night is not recommended for children under 13 or anyone who scares easily.
