Six Flags – Fright Fest
There are Six Flags theme park all across the country, so the one near you probably has some of the spooky stuff taking place this month and next. However, we’ve only got time to mention one, so we’re going with Six Flags Great Adventure not too far outside of New York City in Jackson, New Jersey. Most rides and attractions are open, but it’s the freaky frights that are the main event this season. Stuff runs on weekends from September 22 through October 28, and tickets will set you back roughly $63. However, there will be some attractions that might just hit you up for a few more bucks—bummer.
Universal Studios – Halloween Horror Nights
Scary stuff goes down on both coasts, as Universal Studios goes into their attic and brings down the decorations in both Orlando and Hollywood. Both parks promise stuff created by some of the sickest and most twisted minds in horror, so let’s just say that you’ve been warned. Tickets in California will run you between $50 and $65 depending on the date, as this year’s events run through September 21 through October 28 with the finale on October 31. Over in Florida there are haunted houses from the mind of Alice Cooper and from the AMC show The Walking Dead, and it’s all available on select nights between September 21 and October 31. Tickets run from $37 to $67, and again it’s all dependent on the night you visit.
Walt Disney World – Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party
For those that are looking for more pumpkins and candy than ghosts and ghouls there’s always Disney World. On select evenings the Magic Kingdom kicks out the regular daily guests, and then holds a private Halloween party for those willing to shell out between $63 and $70 per person. There’s a parade, free candy, and special fireworks, as well as access to all the usual rides and attractions. Dates are all over the map, but basically stuff starts doing its thing this week and is available on select dates through October 31—trick-or-treat!
