Six Flags Over Georgia Transforms into Fright Fest this October with Terrifying Twists
Park offering free tickets to blood donors during the first week of October
Six Flags Over Georgia will be overrun with zombies, vampires and ghouls as Fright Fest Presented by SNICKERS® takes over the park this October. The return of a fan-favorite show, an expanded Terror Train and frighteningly fun family offerings highlight Atlanta’s largest Halloween event in 2012.
The park is offering free tickets to guests who donate blood during the annual Fright Fest blood drive taking place October 1-5 at the LifeSouth Georgia Community Blood Centers in Dunwoody, Gainesville and McDonough. To receive a free Fright Fest ticket, potential donors must make a reservation by calling (404) 329-1994 in advance. Reservations and free tickets are limited.
It’s Thrills by Day as the park offers family-friendly Halloween events during the daylight hours, including trick-or-treating, pumpkin painting, arts and crafts, spooky story time and fun surprises in BUGS BUNNY’s Spooky Town. Other family favorites include the transformation of the classic Hanson Cars into McBoogles and Bad Bob the Bone Butcher comedy show.
Beware as the sun sets and the park transforms for Fright by Night when evil creatures and spirits lurk around every corner. Guests can face the terror in Dr. Fright’s Frightorium haunted house or experience being buried alive in the Last Ride (nominal fees required). Zombies, ghouls and monsters will even roam the midways preying on unsuspecting guests.
The fan-favorite Dr. Fright’s Dead Man’s Party will return for another run at the famed Crystal Pistol Music Hall. This terrifyingly fun show features creatures from the spirit world in a spooky, high-energy musical revue featuring everyone’s favorite Halloween songs.
The park will also introduce an expanded, re-imagined Terror Train that will take guests on a haunted locomotive where they come face to face with the horrors of an abandoned town, known today as Bloodtown. Terror Train will be twice as long and twice as terrifying in 2012 (nominal fee required).
