Six Flags Great Adventure is excited to announce their line up of attractions and spooky fun for this year's Fright Fest, which kicks off on September 10th.  This year Fright Fest returns after taking a season off, bigger and better than before with new attractions, returning haunts, family fun during the day, live shows (like the fan-favorite Dead Man's Party) and more.  This year reservations will be required for all visitors to make sure they have the safest, most enjoyable day while at the park.

As in past years the park will offer plenty of daytime fun for the entire family during Fright Fest.  From Scarecrow Street, decorated in its Halloween finest, to a Spooktacular Dance Party, there's something for everyone.  And, of course, Trick-or-Treat Trail will return for kids 12 and under to get a sweet treat.

New this year are Fright Fest Power Hours, taking place on Thursdays in September, Wednesdays and Thursdays in October plus October 25th through 28th.  This private event for thrill seekers will offer exclusive ride time on the park's thrilling coasters and select rides, plus access to indoor and outdoor haunted mazes at reduced prices.  Separate tickets and reservations are required.

Also, during the month of September there will be Frightworks, a dazzling display of fireworks set to spooktacular music.  The show will take place on weekends in September as part of the Member & Season Pass Appreciation Month.

Once the evening sets in and the frights come out visitors will find new attractions at this year's Fright Fest.  These include a new scare zone named Venom Gulch, set in Frontier Adventures.  The area will be set as a Wild West town that was abandonded after a mine collapse.  Per the park, the town folk up and left, but the miners' spirits remained to poison the town.

A brand new haunted maze will also debut this year, named The Lab.  Guests will venture into a secretive laboratory where "mysterious and unlicensed experiments are the order of the day."

Additionally, the park's Xpedition Dino attraction will transform into Xpedition Dino: Survival, another new haunted maze.  While fun an educational during the day, the experience will change at night and feature blood-thirsty dinosaurs that are after the guests.

Elsewhere in the park guests will also find a new show named Witch's Brew, meant for younger guests, where a friendly neightborhood witch will tell stores.  Plus, the Lil' Devil Coaster will debut to guests this fall, located near the park's new star ride, the Jersey Devil Coaster.
