Six Flags Over Texas

Six Flags Over Texas is home to Fright Fest, the annual Halloween event that transforms the classic amusement park into a spooky maze of haunted attractions. For a tamer, more family-friendly experience, visit the park during daylight, while the scarier activities begin after dark. This year’s lineup features zombies, goblins, ghouls, cadavers and clowns.

For a truly terrifying evening, check out the haunted houses for an additional admission fee. A pass to visit all six is $29.99 plus tax, or visiting one house costs $14.99.  For more info and tickets to FrightFest
