AUSTELL, Ga. — Six Flags Over Georgia is letting the ghouls out starting this weekend with their annual Fright Fest event full of haunted houses, spooky live shows and nighttime roller coaster rides.
It starts on September 17 and ends October 31, on Halloween night. The 17-day event will have something for people of all ages and introduce Free Maze Fridays. Guests who visit on Friday nights get free admission to all five haunted houses.
"Free Maze Fridays will take place September 23 and 30, and October 7, 14, 21 and 28," Six Flags Over Georgia said. "On all other Fright Fest dates, haunted house admission requires a valid Haunted Attractions Pass."
Park officials said they've added a few things since last year, including a daytime festival. Six Flags Kids Boo Fest is for the little monsters; they said during the day, Halloween activities like " trick-or-treating, pumpkin decorating, storytelling, a costume contest, games and more" will be featured.
Park officials said they are also amping up their decorations, "reimagined" one of their haunted houses and added two new live shows to their Fright Fest lineup.
Here's a complete list of the park's new and returning attractions, events and shows:
New attractions, events and shows
