It does not seem to me that the popularity of Halloween has started to taper yet, each year it grows and grows and along with it are the park celebrations we love so much. This year Six Flags Great Adventure has stepped up their game and are holding the largest Fright Fest in their history, that's more entertainment, more monsters, more terror trails, and more zombie zones than ever before!

Once six o'clock falls the park transforms into a most demented version of itself, overtaken by a legion of monster and ghouls. To mark the transformation The Awakening takes place each night, where the Ghoulmaster awakens Dr. Fright to release the zombies into the park.
|Bone Butcher Terror-Tory, a Zombie Zone|
Frontier Adventures becomes the Bone Butcher Terror-Tory, with crazed western zombies, and colonial era zombies stalk prey near the park entrance by The Bloody Fountain. Anyone with a fear of clowns will want to avoid the midway area of the Boardwalk, as it turns into Circus Psycho. New this year is Shipwreck Cove, an area in the Lakefront that's packed full of undead pirates.

Many smaller shows takes place throughout the park as well, such as the Circus of Thrills along the Boardwalk, which has a "globe of death," wheel of destiny and sway poles. There's also Doc Swan's Sideshow of Oddities, showcasing amazing feats and superhuman strength in Frontier Adventures.

For those looking to rock the Dead & Local Music Showcase in the Lakefront is the place to be, where live bands perform for the crowds. Maybe they'll catch their big break!

Back on the edge of the park, and in the woods, is Wasteland, where botanical experiments in the Demented Forest have gone wrong. Really wrong!
|Ghouls from Circus Psycho and the Bloody Fountain|
A Halloween celebration wouldn't be very fun without ... CANDY! The Trick-or-Treat Trail takes care of that need, and everyone gets to meet their favorite Looney Tunes characters. There's several shows for kids like the Spooky, Kooky Magic Show, which features tricks and illusions that will mystify viewers.

Many thanks to the park for having us out to see all that's new!
