VALENCIA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Six Flags Magic Mountain’s 23rd season of Fright Fest® is the biggest and scariest in the Park’s history. The line-up of new haunted attractions includes two new scare zones — the biggest one ever — a new show, more roving “scare-actors,” and an additional weekend.
For four more frightfully fun weekends, Six Flags Magic Mountain leaves no tombstone unturned to deliver what guest’s want most — the ultimate scare factor. Fright Fest includes a total of seven electrifying mazes, seven dare-to-enter scare zones, and roaming zombies around every corner. If that is not enough, Six Flags Magic Mountain adds a sinister element to some of their monster coasters by turning off the lights, leaving riders to face their fears in total darkness — literally.
Two new scare zones have been added to this year’s horror-filled offering of haunts. The Screampunk District is transformed into Magic Mountain’s biggest scare zone ever, TERRORtory Twisted, where steam-spewing mechanical beasts relentlessly hunt down their victims. Also featured in TERRORtory Twisted is a diabolical new show, Unleashed, where a once-glorified, turn-of-the-century circus troupe returns to enact a haunted version of the maniacal and twisted performances of circuses past. The second new scare zone features a transformation of the ever-popular DC UNIVERSE into Sinister Circuit, where crazed comic-like characters run amuck under a canopy of mind-bending lights.
Returning for the second 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 is 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.
One of the largest and most popular mazes in Southern California, The Aftermath, returns in 2015 to 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. Also returning is 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 scare zones, 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 The Aftermath.
Additional 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 certain to dust off your thriller moves and join in the fun in the Full Throttle Plaza.
For the little monsters, a Trick-or-Treat Trail and Halloween Crafts round out the activities during the day.
A new dining experience, Dining with the Dead, combines an all-you-can-eat buffet with spooky fun and monstertainment for the whole family in the Park’s Picnic Pavilion.
