Six Flags Great Adventure, The World’s Ultimate Thrill Park, announces its fall line-up of events, including Fright Fest presented by SNICKERS®, which promises to be the scariest event ever! While daylight hours are reserved for the family-friendly Kids Boo Fest and Oktoberfest, the theme park will pull out all the stops for “fright by night.” These events run on select days September 16 through October 31.

Oktoberfest Food Festival ─ September 17 through October 30

Oktoberfest Food Festival will become a new family favorite, filled with a large selection of seasonal craft lagers and beers from around the world, a variety of frightfully delicious cocktails and mouth-watering German-style foods designed to tantalize the taste buds. 

“Family-Friendly” Kids Boo Fest ─ September 17 through October 30

Six Flags will adorn the theme park in its fall finest with mums, pumpkins, cornstalks and hay bales. Kids Boo Fest attractions for families will include trick-or treating in Cornstalk National Park, Scarecrow Street at Liberty Fountain and two live shows, the Spooktacular Dance Party and Witch’s Brew.

“Terrifying” Fright Fest ─ September 16 through October 31

At 6 p.m., things take a frightening turn! Families with young children, those with sensory sensitivities, and those who scare easily are encouraged to exit the park. Nighttime festivities include a fan-favorite ghoul parade, live stage shows, and terrifying scare zones, plus six haunted houses for the ultimate scare. Fright Fest will also feature the theme park’s enhanced dining options, fall shopping including popular Fright Fest hoodies, and a world-class lineup of rides and attractions, including the newly renovated Jr. Thrillseekers area and Medusa roller coaster.
