A variety of festive Halloween events are happening all around North Texas in October. At Six Flags (Thrill Capital of Texas) Fright Fest® returns with its most terrifying event in the park’s 60-year history. The event terror-filled run weekends and select days through October 31.

“This year, we’re rolling out all the stops, with innovative new haunted houses, entertaining shows, and the longest Fright Fest run in our park’s history” said Six Flags Over Texas Park President Ron McKenzie. “When North Texans are looking for the best value for scares this Halloween season, they need look no further than Fright Fest at Six Flags Over Texas,” added McKenzie.

Fright Fest

Before the terror begins, Fright Fest presented by SNICKERS® features Thrills by Day with daytime experiences for the entire family, including the all-new Dead Man’s Wharf and Looney Tunes Spooky Town where younger park guests can enjoy trick-or-treating and character interaction. The park’s Casa Magnetica, which re-opened this season after a decade, will pay homage to Día de los Muertos with a special overlay of this tilted house attraction.

Each evening, its Fright by Night as the fear is unleashed with six haunted houses, three terrifying scare zones and roaming hordes of zombies and sinister souls wreaking havoc throughout the park.

Three new haunted houses provide new terrors this year. Love at First Fright: The Southern Palace sets the stage, where we find Witchie in search of a brain for her beloved Frankie.

Monnster Shoppe: Angela, the owner of the Monster Shoppe, and her not-so-scary friends sing and dance to fun Halloween favorites such as “Purple People Eater” and “Jump in the Line.

”Hellz Bellz: This group of unassuming ladies check into their favorite hotel to unveil their darkest secrets and release the skeletons in their closet. Final Rock Out: This end-of-the-night finale will feature high-energy dance and songs from classic 80s rock bands. Starts October 1. Day of the Dead Mariachis and Halloween Jazz Band: Día de los Muertos on the Carousel Stage with mariachis and jazz band performances.

Fright Fest admission is included with a one-day ticket, Season Pass or a Six Flags Membership. Haunted houses require the additional purchase of a Fright Pass.

Reindeer Manor Red Oak

Reindeer Manor The Bunker


Open Friday and Saturdays now through October 31.

First, check out Dungeon of Doom, a 3d blacklight show that lets you wonder thru arcades of the 80’s, while trying to evade capture and beat the final boss.

Then see Reindeer Manor like you’ve never seen it before. Reindeer is home to Theta Omega Kill, a fraternity in 1985 that is hosting their Halloween party, and boy did they pick the wrong location! The Copy Cat Killer is hunting the college party-goers down, one at a time, in the most deranged way. Is the bloody path the way out, or will it be the end of the line for you?

13th Street Morgue – the 2 story mortuary of your nightmares. The graveyards only tell a portion of the haunted story of what really happened that night so many years ago. Ghosts maybe the least of your worries wondering thru the ruins of what once was.

New for 2021…The Bunker – Refuge in a wasteland. Society’s done and all that’s left is what used to be. Do you have the fortitude to do what has to be done to survive?
