From now through November 2nd you can experience thrills by day and frights by night at the Six Flags over Georgia Fright Fest brought to you by Snickers. Thrills by day offers events for the younger crowd such as the Lickskillet Harvest Festival, Bug’s Bunny Spookytown, Spooky Stories, Trick or Treating and a Costume Contest. When the sun goes down the Dr’ Frights Frightorium opens, take a ride on the Terror Train, visit the Cemetery of the Undead or check out the Freak Show and much more, get all the details here.
We visited Six Flags last weekend and the park was decorated very well with a Halloween theme. Scattered throughout the park were various characters dressed for Halloween and handing out yummy Snickers candies. The theme of Fright Fest is Thrills by Day, Frights by Night. During the day there are quite a few activities for all ages to participate in. The Lickskillet Harvest Festival is centered around a huge playground that your kids are sure to love and featured pumpkin painting and other arts and crafts. For the smaller kids there is Bugs Bunny’s Spooky Town with no tricks, just treats for the little ones. Lots of Looney Tunes characters dressed up and surprises around every corner.
Of course at Six Flags there is no shortage of rides. A family favorite was the Dahlonega Mine Train, an awesome thrill ride for the younger kids that don’t like the larger roller coasters and who doesn’t like a good Carousel? My oldest daughter and I are the roller coaster lovers so the Georgia Cyclone and Great American Scream Machine were a couple of our favorites. If you visit Six Flags over Georgia or any Six Flags theme park I highly recommend you buy the Flash Pass. This allows you to enter each ride through a separate line which almost always ensures you are at the front of the line. We did not purchase these, but wish we had because on the larger rides over half of the seats would be taken by Flash Pass riders and as soon as they got off they would get back in line again. This meant we found ourselves spending a lot more time waiting in line than we did actually riding rides. Also do not assume that because it is fall that this is the off season. The park was very packed on the Saturday we went so you will be waiting in line. One other thing that was a little disappointing is from what we read it looked like Fright Nights would start at dark, around 8pm, but instead the creatures started to prowl the park around 3:30 which the younger kids did not like so we ended up cutting our day short. What are your plans for this Halloween? Have you ever visited a Haunted Park, what was your experience?
