New Haunted Attractions Include a Themed Scare Zone, Largest Maze in
Park History, and Expanded Calendar
SEPTEMBER 17, 18, 24, 25, 30 – OCTOBER 1, 2, 7-9, 14-16, 21-23, and
VALENCIA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Six Flags Magic Mountain’s 24th season of Fright Fest® will
be the biggest and scariest in the Park’s history. The exciting
line-up of new haunted attractions includes a new scare zone themed
after the Warner Bros. Pictures highly anticipated film, Suicide Squad,
and the largest outdoor maze in the Park’s history, Aftermath 2:
Chaos Rising. The expansion also includes more roving “scare-actors”
than ever before and an additional Fright Fest weekend, bringing the
total to 19 event days.
Voted the Best Theme Park Halloween Event in 2016, Six Flags Magic
Mountain leaves no tombstone unturned to deliver what guests want
most…an all-out terrifying experience. Fright Fest will include a total
of seven electrifying mazes, seven dare-to-enter scare zones, and
roaming zombies around every corner. If that’s not enough, Six Flags
Magic Mountain will add a sinister element to some of the theme park’s
monster coasters by turning off the lights, leaving riders to face their
fears in total darkness – literally.
This year’s stunning new scare zone, Suicide Squad: The Six Flags
Fright Fest Experience will transform the Park’s 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. Darkness and chaos will reign as some of DC Comics’ most famous
supervillains will be found among the mass destruction from the film.
State-of-the-art digital imagery and fiery special effects will create
an inferno as buildings burst into flames and creatures attack from
every angle. “It feels good to be bad” at Suicide Squad: The
Six Flags Fright Fest Experience.
The Park’s largest outdoor maze ever built, Aftermath 2: Chaos
Rising, debuts in 2016 in a brand new location. Covering 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
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
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
For the little monsters, a Trick or Treat Trail and Halloween Crafts
round out the activities during the day.
