Six Flags Replaces Fright Fest With COVID-Conscious Hallowfest

New Jersey’s Six Flags Great Adventure has canceled its annual Fright Fest and replaced it with an outdoor-only, socially distanced Halloween event called Hallowfest.

According to NJ.com, Hallowfest will not have indoor mazes, shows or haunted houses to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Instead, it will have socially distanced outdoor activities, like an outdoor maze, haunted trails and fright zones.

“Our annual Fright Fest celebration is one of the most anticipated Halloween events of the season,” said Mike Spanos, Six Flags President and CEO, in a statement Monday. “Given the current environment, we are taking special precautions this year and offering our guests a version that is still scary, provides lots of thrilling rides and Halloween fun, and most importantly, is safe for our guests and team members.”

During the day, Six Flags will feature plenty of kid-friendly activities, like trick-or-treating and the classic Six Flags rides. After 6 p.m., the fog will roll in, darkness will cover the park and the professional scarers will come out. This time will feature some rides in complete darkness.

Hallowfest begins September 18 and will run on the weekends until November 1, 2020. Masks are required for all guests two years or older, and social distancing will be maintained by both guests and staff.

Guests can book their reservations online starting September 4. For more information, please visit SixFlags.com.
