Six Flags Magic Mountain Presents Biggest and Scariest Halloween Event Ever!

New Haunted Attractions Include a Suicide Squad Themed Scare
Zone, and Largest Maze in Company History

SEPTEMBER 24, 25, 30 – OCTOBER 1, 2, 7-9, 14-16, 21-23, and 28-30

VALENCIA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Six Flags Magic Mountain’s 24th season of Fright Fest® is
the biggest and scariest in the park’s history. The exciting line-up
of new haunted attractions includes a new scare zone themed after Warner
Bros. Pictures blockbuster film, Suicide Squad, and the
largest outdoor maze in the company’s history, Aftermath 2: Chaos
. The expansion also includes more roving “scare-actors” than
ever before.

Voted the Best Theme Park Halloween Event in 2015, Six Flags Magic
Mountain leaves no tombstone unturned to deliver what guests want
most…an all-out terrifying experience. Fright Fest includes a total of
seven electrifying mazes, seven dare-to-enter scare zones, and a
terrifying corps of roaming zombies around every corner. If that’s not
enough, Six Flags Magic Mountain adds a sinister element to some of the
theme park’s monster coasters by turning off the lights, leaving riders
to face their fears in total darkness–literally.

“Six Flags Magic Mountain has kicked it up again in the haunted
attraction genre with the introduction of the largest, most innovative
and immersive maze in the company’s history, Aftermath 2: Chaos Rising,”
said Bonnie Sherman Weber, Six Flags Magic Mountain park president.
“Combined with the new Suicide Squad scare zone, more
scare-actors than ever before, and additional nights, Six Flags Magic
Mountain’s Fright Fest is a definite leading player in Southern
California Halloween locales.”

This year’s stunning new scare zone, Suicide Squad: The Six Flags
Fright Fest Experience
transforms the Park’s DC UNIVERSE area into
DC Midway City, where some of the “Worst Heroes Ever” from the
blockbuster film Suicide Squad are roaming the streets. Darkness
and chaos reign as some of DC’s most famous Super-Villains are found
among the mass destruction from the film. State-of-the-art digital
imagery and fiery special effects create an inferno as buildings burst
into flames and creatures attack from every angle. It feels good to
be bad
at Suicide Squad: The Six Flags Fright Fest Experience.

The company’s largest maze ever built, an outdoor attraction, Aftermath
2: Chaos Rising, debuted this year in a brand new sprawling
location. Tripled in size and covering more than 40,000 square feet,
this massive maze strikes terror into the brave souls entering a
post-apocalyptic city where a renegade faction is threatening to destroy
the only livable space with the release of a dangerous toxin that guests
must escape. Larger-than-life props, fire, fog and intense special
effects make this a must-experience maze.

Back by popular demand haunted scare zones include TERRORtory Twisted,
located in the Screampunk District, which is Magic Mountain’s
biggest scare zone and features steam-spewing mechanical beasts
relentlessly hunting down their victims. Beware of the terrifying giant
spider looming at the entrance.

Coming back for the third year, three popular mazes incorporate
state-of-the-art props, Hollywood-quality make-up, and story lines not
meant for the faint-of-heart. Enter the world of Red’s Revenge…over
the river and through the woods, to Grandmother’s house you go, but in
this fairytale, guests and the wolf are hunted by Red and her demonic
minions. Vault 666 is an old abandoned research facility where
genetic experiments crossing humans with animals were once conducted and
just recently the frightening secrets have been unearthed, exposing
terror and mayhem from deep within the unsecured vault. Willoughby’s
Garden of Darkness
, a dense labyrinth of man-eating plants
and evil apparitions, is inhabited by Innocence, the Willoughby’s
youngest daughter, who is always looking for a ghostly playmate…so keep
loved ones close.

Also returning is the demented 3D twist, Toyz of Terror 3D, the
defunct toy factory haunted by wicked windups, freakish furries and
deranged dolls…and if that’s not enough to scare the wits out of even
the bravest, guests are now forced to experience the madness in 3D
terror. Willoughby’s Resurrected is a reincarnation of the Willoughby
family’s beloved haunted mansion that includes hair-raising horror down
long harrowing hallways and around each nightmarish-turn. Don’t miss Chupacabra,
where guests come face to face with this elusive blood-thirsty creature
as it petrifies the local Dia De Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) Festival.

In addition to the two new haunted attractions this year, five
additional scare zones around the park leave guests nowhere to hide and
screaming to get out alive. After entering Fright Fest through
the gates of Demon’s Door, face the undead in Zombie
. In Nightmares – A Twisted Fantasy, childhood
fears and favorite bedtime stories take on a perverse twist, freak
out on Exile Hill when unimaginable sinister souls appear without
warning, and throughout the Wasteland, barbarian humanoids
dare guests to enter the carnage of Aftermath 2: Chaos Rising.

Beginning each night at 7 p.m. and traveling throughout the park are the
crazed comic-like characters who will run amuck through the park,
taunting unsuspecting guests.

Spooktacular shows include the hypnotists, who put park guests in
compromising scenarios in their hilarious stage show located in Golden
Bear Theater, and the very popular VooDoo Nights, where
Ghoul Rock has gone pop with a musical spectacular sure to entertain. Be
sure to dust off your thriller moves and join in the fun in the Full
Throttle Plaza.

For the little monsters, a Trick or Treat Trail and Halloween Crafts
round out the activities during the day.
