Who’s ready for Halloween?
Fright Fest is right around the corner, and as promised, here is the preliminary list of offerings for Fright Fest 2009.
(Remember that everything is subject to change; ideas take different forms between the planning and construction stages of projects.)

•Ride in the Dark! – Experience some of your favorite roller coasters in the dark.
•Sky Tower Mausoleum – Towering 38 stories above the ground, this landmark offers historic displays and a “spooktacular” view. You’ll also learn the distorted tale of the wildly disturbed Willoughby family.
•Meet RIP – Be sure to document your Six Flags Fright Fest memories with a photo of our Willoughby’s chauffeur, RIP, and his “wheels”.
Stage Shows –

Scare Zones –
•The Riot – The Willoughby family “collected” many colorful and unique characters while running the town’s Mental Health Center. Insane rage runs rampant in the streets of Gotham City Backlot. Brightly colored comic book – like characters create a genuinely uncomfortable environment.
•Exile Hill – Once the lush gardens of the Willoughby estate, Exile Hill has become home to the once-caretakers of the mansion; banished from mortality and destined to haunt the hills surrounding Willoughby Mansion for eternity on Samurai Summit.
•Aftermath – Journey through Cyclone Bay if you dare, to see the post-apocalyptic result in this shore-side town.
•Willoughby’s Haunted Mansion – The granddaddy of all Six Flags Magic Mountain mazes. Once a grand estate, the mansion has long since become a dilapidated bundle of termite-ridden lumber hiding dark family secrets, with many skeletons hidden in the closets. The mansion sits atop Samurai Summit.
•Jokester’s Hideout 3D– Sideshow clowns run amok while you sneak through the hideout, but watch your back! You never know when a crazy clown will strike.
•Johan Willoughby’s Brutal Planet – Six Flags Magic Mountain’s largest maze is currently going through “Fright-struction”. More information will be released soon.
Ride Hauntings –
•Willoughby’s Industries Warehouse 13 – The ultimate test of bravery is at the Willoughby’s family-owned waste disposal facility. Beware: Work is mandatory and escape impossible. This toxic destination leaves no one unchanged.
•Deadman’s Bog – The dumping ground for Mr. Willoughby’s failed experiments, some of these twisted creations have returned from beyond. Altered and savage, they wait for any who tread this swampy wasteland.
At this point it looks like Fright Fest Attraction Wristbands will once again be sold for $5. The wristbands will grant unlimited access to the Mazes and Ride Hauntings. Information has not yet been released regarding the FlashPass system in relationship to the mazes and ride haunting.
