Magic Mountain Halloween Pictures
Cute by day, "frightening" by night, Six Flags has a fun Halloween celebration!
In the slide show above, you're viewing pictures of the tame daytime Magic Mountain Fright Fest fun. Though there are a few skeletons and scary decorations, most of the emphasis is on pumpkins, spider webs (fake, of course) and Looney Tunes characters. Children's activities take place in the Bugs Bunny World section of the park. So, yes...it's perfectly fine to bring your kids to enjoy daytime Fright Fest events at Six Flags Magic Mountain. On this page, you'll see pictures of daytime Halloween decorations at Fright Fest. If you'd like to see pictures of scary monsters and read about nighttime events, you may visit the Magic Mountain Fright Fest Pictures, pt 1 page of this site.
Magic Mountain's Halloween DecorationsSix Flags Magic Mountain's Halloween celebration wants to be cute by day (so it won't scare the kiddies) and frightening by night...in the park's scare zones, at least. And, it manages to do both of these things quite well!
On this page, you'll see pictures of Magic Mountain's festive Halloween decorations by day. If you missed "part 1" of the Magic Mountain Halloween pictures, that's where you'll find the photos of Six Flag's monsters, dimly lit fog, and nighttime festivities. Use the following link to the 6 Flags Fright Fest pictures if you want to take a peek at Magic Mountain's after-dark Halloween fun.
In the two photos to your left, you can see how fake-but-cute cobwebs greet you at the Six Flags Magic Mountain entry gate during the month of October. Pictures of pumpkins, plus several giant Jack O Lanterns greet you, as well.
In the picture above, you can see one of the many Jack O Lantern lights which adorn the park. By day, these look just like cute pumpkins sitting on a pole. But at night, you can see that they begin to glow. Despite Magic Mountain's emphasis on nighttime fright, these pumpkin lights are a cheerful and friendly addition to the 6 Flags evening Halloween celebration.
One of the pictures on the Six Flags entrance gate that's hard to forget is "Monster Tweety Bird." You can see Tweety in the photo to your right looking angrier and more fierce than you've ever seen him...AND he's turning the tables on Sylvester the cat by giving HIM a chase (instead of the other way around!)
Here's a closeup of a smiling Jack O Lantern at the theme park's entrance.
Magic Mountain Halloween Fun for KidsLooney Tunes character greetings continue, as usual, during Magic Mountain's October Halloween celebrations...but with an extra twist. In the picture to your right, you can see Petunia Pig posing for the camera...and she has on a Halloween costume! She's dressed up as a superhero (there's a cape on the back of the outfit, which you can't really see in this pose.)
Not all of the characters you'll meet at 6 Flags Magic Mountain will be wearing Halloween costumes, though. The DC Comics characters...such as Batman and Robin...simply wear their "normal" superhero suits. You'll find signs throughout the park showing you WHERE characters will appear that day. But, you may discover that the correct times for the visits are NOT on the signs! (Which makes it more or less a matter of luck whether or not you actually get to meet & greet any characters during your visit.)
An area adjacent to the entryway of Bug's Bunny World has been turned into an arts and crafts area. (In actuality, this mostly means coloring with crayons!) In the morning, the crowd is scant in the arts and crafts area, but as the day rolls on and more visitors enter the park, a lively crowd builds up.
In the photos to the left, you can see some of the decorations in the Magic Mountain Halloween arts 'n crafts area. And, in the photo to your right, you can see the tables set up in the little arts and crafts area.
There are a few other kids Halloween activities. A children's Halloween costume contest was announced by a sign in front of the arts and crafts area. There was also a Halloween story teller regaling children in one of the theme park's shops on the day of my visit. (This activity wasn't announced in the park's brochure, nor was there a sign; I happened to stumble across the activity. Which means, "keep your eyes out," because you might run across an interesting activity that hasn't been announced!
In the picture to your right, you can see one of the cute displays of pumpkins that are scattered about the children's section of the theme park.
Magic Mountain Halloween Pictures -- Scary Decorations!Just because Six Flags Magic Mountain wants to create an un-scary atmosphere for children during daytimes at the park, that doesn't mean there aren't any frightening decorations at all. Because, there are!
As you can see in the photos on this section of the page, Magic Mountain makes use of skeletons, skulls, monster statues & images, and TONS of fake cobwebs as part of its Halloween celebration. (The monsters and skeletons, however, aren't really at a little child's eye-level, so they will probably not see them closely enough to feel frightened.)
In these pictures, you can see some of Magic Mountain's skull/skeleton decorations.
More scary decorations...
Fake cobwebs are "everywhere" throughout Magic Mountain in October. Here you see a row of buildings in the Gotham City section of the park (near the Batman roller coaster ride) which have been draped with cobwebs.
On the other hand, frayed burlap has been chosen to decorate the entrance of Magic Mountain's popular Tatsu roller coaster ride.
Frayed burlap is a home decorating idea that you can borrow from the theme park to use in your own home decorating for Halloween parties. This material makes a nice scary-looking mix of textures when combined with the fake cobwebs you can get at your local party shop.
Halloween at Magic Mountain...when night falls!When the afternoon wears on into evening....
...and the brilliant blue of the sky slowly morphs into a dingy slate grey...
BEWARE! Six Flags Magic Mountain's Fright Fest is about to begin!
In these photos to your left and right, you see the entrance gates to the Batman roller coaster attraction at Six Flags. It's funny, but during the bright daytime sunshine, these gates never look scary...
...but when illuminated against a darkening sky, these somber statues which form part of the gateway begin to look eerie, indeed!
A second gateway in Gotham City...at the entrance to this Batman-themed section of Magic Mountain...turns on its spooky lighting at dusk. This area is where the first batch of monsters will be released when the Halloween Fright Fest begins.
You're looking forward to the event. You patiently stand waiting for the monsters to arrive...
You really want them to come. You wish they'd hurry up. You're absolutely NOT going to scream this year!
Oh, yeah? Heh, heh, heh! We'll see!
