Fright Fest Memories

When I was a kid we would often go over to Six Flags St. Louis to ride some of the thrilling roller coasters and meet different characters from some of my favorite TV shows.  When I was 12 my mom thought we should spend an October day at Six Flags, and she had NO idea what she was getting us into.  It was pretty funny because my mom didn't realize it was Fright Fest when we went and boy was that a surprise!  I still remember the look on her face when she realized there were creepy scare actors throughout the park and not just in the haunted houses.  It was pretty funny, and I'm pretty sure that's where my Halloween obsession began.

Six Flags Fright Fest

Six Flags Fright Fest takes place every October at Six Flags St. Louis, and they go BIG with the thrills and the chills! Fright Fest is where you can experience Six Flags after dark.  Throughout the amusement park, they will have haunted houses, scare zones, scare actors, and rides in the dark. They will also have horror-themed entertainment shows going on as well.  Not to mention, the park is completely decked out with the spookiest decorations.
