I had the opportunity to attend the 2012 Fright Fest at Six Flags Great America recently. Now, I am not a huge fan of haunted houses but I definitely like the rush I get after experiencing them and getting scared to death. There are 4 new attractions to Fright Fest this year; Wicked Woods, Manslaughter Manor, The Dead Line and Fright Club: NC-17. Wicked Woods is located at Roaring Rapids, the water has been drained and you walk where the boats, and if that isn’t creepy already, as you twist your way through the wooded trail, you may find yourself face-to-face with these legendary creatures such as Sasquatch, Mothman, Jerzy Devil, and Chupacabra. Manslaughter Manor is located in Southwest Territory and has the reputation for being cursed. A group of supernatural investigators have been brought in to try and capture evidence of this curse and they are giving tours of the house during the Halloween Season while their investigation is proceeding. The Dead Line is the Six Flags Great America Train ride. Trains leave every few minutes from Sector 7 Station for Illinois’ only Zombie Free attraction, Fun Haven! You and your family will first enjoy a relaxing, scenic, and completely safe ride through the dead zone (no pun intended) with only minimal reminders of the outside crumbling world. Fright Club: NC-17 takes place inside Riptide Bay at Hurricane Harbor and the DJ has resurrected some of the hottest dancers from the dead who will be gyrating to his protégé’s hot dance tunes spun live on a massive sound system in this new outdoor club experience. Be careful though, there are rules. Rule Number One: You Don’t Talk About Fright Club.
Of course all of the old Fright Fest attractions are back for another. There are only 2 weekends left to experience this year’s Fright Fest. You can check out my experience in this video. Feel free to let me know your thoughts Fright Fest in the comment section below.
