Fright Fest Begins Tonight At Six Flags Magic Mountain

Valencia, CA -- It's an Xtreme Park spooktacular this October as Six Flags Magic Mountain... Now the Xtreme Park just outside of Los Angeles transforms into a ghostly autumn spook zone for the entire family. Experience Deja Vu... in the dark! One of the most anticipated rides of the year goes lights out for one month only!

Fright Fest offers loads of costumed ghosts & ghouls, hair-raising live shows, electrifying street entertainers, monstrous mazes and a special area just for children. These thrilling Halloween attractions invade Southern California for four spooktacular weekends, October 5-7, 12-14, 19-21, 26-28 & 31.

Back by popular demand is Brutal Planet...a terrifying trip through twelve demon-filled worlds and electrifying special effects that will terrorize even die-hard horror fans. After passing through the lair of the wicked controller, you are left on your own to wander the remains of the 6500 square-foot demented world of Brutal Planet. Brutal Planet will definitely satisfy the Halloween fan out for the scare of a lifetime, but it is not recommended for children under 10.

For the pint-sized set, Looney Tunes Spooky Town offers Halloween tricks and special treats. Kids join their favorite Looney Tunes characters in costume for the ultimate trick-or-treat experience. This is the centerpiece of Fright Fest's children's area, which includes an animal show, street entertainers and arts and crafts.

Spoktacular Mazes

Brutal Planet -- This 6500 square foot maze located near Batman The Ride offers brutal monsters, brutal chills and brutal thrills in a universe of unknown dimensions. Grab your boarding pass and prepare to be transported to a place where evil lurks and chaos reigns. We hope to see you back on earth... if you make it through the twelve demon filled lands! (Not intended for children under 10, ages 13 and under must be accompanied by an adult.)

Willoughby's Haunted Mansion -- Beware, the bewitching hour has struck. This sanctuary of strangeness is Halloween horror at its best. Hair-raising terror awaits guests around each nightmarish turn and long twisting hallway. The fearful encounter features animatronics, gruesome monsters, camouflage rooms and much more. The mansion is situated high atop the mountain -- at Samurai Summit. (This attraction is not intended for young children.)

The Jokster's Hideout -- This is not your ordinary maze. There is no blood, no guts and no monsters. The goal is to sneak through the hideout to catch a peek of what projects the Jokster and his crew are working on. But watch your never know when a crazy clown will strike. Located next to the Flashback roller coaster.
