<>, the World’s Ultimate Thrill Park,
leads the way for Halloween thrills and chills with a new event for the
entire family—*HALLOWFEST*. The event will feature *Thrills* *by Day* with
family-friendly activities and *Chills by Night* with rides on monster

Reservations will ensure limited capacity admission, and slots are expected

protocols will be in effect for the entire run of the event.

“Our annual Fright Fest celebration is one of the most anticipated
Halloween events of the season. Given the current environment, we are
taking special precautions this year and offering our guests a version that
is still scary, provides lots of thrilling rides and Halloween fun, and
most importantly, is safe for our guests and team members,” said Six Flags
President and CEO Mike Spanos. “We will operate HALLOWFEST the same way we
have operated our parks all summer, with daily temperature checks and face
masks required for guests and team members prior to entry, social
distancing, and enhanced sanitization measures.”

From 2 to 6 p.m, families and young thrill-seekers will experience
*HALLOWFEST* *Thrills by Day* including:
