Six Flags Magic Mountain announced details for the annual Fright Fest haunted event at the park. The park announced that they will be bringing the new film Suicide Squad to the park as an all-new scare zone. The park will transform the DC UNIVERSE area into DC’s Midway City, where some of the “Worst Heroes Ever” from the highly-anticipated film Suicide Squad will be roaming the streets.
The park also announced that they will be bringing the largest outdoor maze in the Park’s history, Aftermath 2: Chaos Rising, to the event as well. The house will span more than 40,000 square feet, this massive maze will 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. Larger-than-life props, fire, fog and other special effects make this a must-experience maze.
Fright Fest will run a total of 19 days this year, September 17, 18, 24, 25, 30 – October 1, 2, 7-9, 14-16, 21-23, and 28-30.
Stay tuned after the break for even more Fright Fest details!
Back by popular demand haunted scare zones include TERRORtory Twisted, located in the Screampunk District, which is Magic Mountain’s biggest scare zone and features steam-spewing mechanical beasts relentlessly hunting down their victims. Beware of the terrifying giant spider looming at the entrance.
Coming back for the third year, three popular 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.
Also returning is the demented 3D twist, 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. 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. Don’t miss 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.
In addition to the two new haunted attractions this year, five additional 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. 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 Aftermath 2: Chaos Rising.
Beginning each night at 7 p.m. and traveling throughout the park are the crazed comic-like characters who will run amuck through unsuspecting guests.
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.
