The frights have started! Six Flags Fright Fest opens its gates once again!

Fright Fest is an annual tradition at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom. 

Starting at sundown (6 PM), the scare zones and haunted houses open, leaving most of the rides closed during that time. The event includes seasonal food, merchandise, jumpscares, original haunted houses, and more. Fright Fest runs from Sept. 23 to Oct. 29.

Scare Zones, Haunted Houses, and Haunted Trails

Scare Zones are paths that connect parts of the park that are decorated with different themes. These parts of the park include people in costumes, decorations, and a haunted house for each scare zone. 

Weeping Wharf is one of the five scare zones, new to Six Flags Discovery Kingdom. This scare zone is located at the back end of the park. Weeping Wharf is a pirate-themed haunted house, with zombie pirates and pirate ship decor. 

The rides open in this area are Cauldron Chaos (Monkey Business) and Ape Anarchy (Thrilla Gorilla). The haunted house for that area is Lost Souls, which is new to Fright Fest.

Murder Mill is another scare zone. The theme includes a barn and has a corn maze feel to it. The scare actors in this zone are dressed up as lumberjacks and chase people around with fake chainsaws. 

Slasher Circus’ theme involves, as the name entails, clowns. This scare zone has clowns that jump out at you. It has no rides but has two haunted houses, CarnEvil: Fresh Meat and Big Top Terror.

The Dead Man’s Party theme is a party in the graveyard. The actors dress up as zombies and the rides that it includes are Dead Man’s Float (The Ark), Double Double Toil & Trouble (Boomerang), and Hex-a-Rama (Scat-a-bout). The haunted house in this area is Sulfur City Society.


My overall experience was amazing and exceptionally scary. I would recommend Fright Fest for those interested. I went with a couple of my friends and we rode most of the rides there.
