Six Flags Fright Fest Pictures

Halloween monsters prowl after dark at Magic Mountain!

In the slide show above, you're viewing a mix of Magic Mountain Fright Fest pictures from recent years. Do you dare attend? Maybe the pics & info on this page can help you make up your mind! If you still need tickets, please see our Magic Mountain Discount Tickets page to find discounts for the event.

Going to Fright Fest this year?

...the experience is simply haunting!

Picture of the area, where Six Flags Magic Mountain's Fright Fest activities begin! Six Flags Magic Mountain in Valencia, California offers guests a nicely-done Fright Fest! On this page, you'll see Six Flags Fright Fest pictures taken during the last several years...and hopefully, they'll help you decide if you want to head to Magic Mountain for the fun during this year's event!

The 6 Flags Fright Fest is smaller than both the Knott's Berry Farm and Universal Studios Hollywood theme parks' Halloween festivities. On the other hand, the Magic Mountain Fright Fest comes included in the cost of your normal admission ticket---even if you've entered the park with a discounted ticket or a season pass! This is really GREAT news for anyone on a budget! To see monsters prowling at other parks requires a hefty extra admission fee!

Fright Fest begins at dark, by the eerily glowing giant pumpkin at the Gotham City gates! Mist begins to roll over the crowd, and the lights dim. Trying hard to see through the banks of clouds rolling in, terrified onlookers discover that an army of monsters, ogres and rag-tag villains has been unleashed on the crowd!

Magic Mountain Fright Fest activities

There are 2 types of attractions: those which come INCLUDED with your Magic Mountain admission ticket, and those which charge an extra fee. Unlike Knott's Scary Farm or Universal Studios, you DON'T have to buy a special ticket just to get into the 6 Flags Fright Fest; you can enjoy both the rides and many of the Halloween attractions for the cost of your regular admission ticket. However, some attractions (namely, the scary mazes) charge an extra fee to enter.

Attractions included with admission include a comedy show; disc jockey and live bands; ride roller coasters in the dark--and the Colossus coaster even runs backwards. Of course, you'll find plenty of fog, eerie lighting and tons of monsters & ghouls roaming in the fright zones! Kids have their own set of non-scary Halloween activities, too--including costume parades and shows.

Extra-fee mazes: The Haunted Houses (scary mazes) at the Six Flags Fright Fest are NOT included in your regular park admission fee (nor season pass.) You'll have to purchase an extra-fee wristband in order to enter them.

Fright Fest tickets: Your ticket to Magic Mountain is good for Fright Fest admission, too. You can get print-at-home discount tickets on the ticketing page of the Magic Mountain website.

Six Flags Fright Fest Monsters

If you feel you're being're probably RIGHT!

A big part of the fun that ensues after the monsters are released en masse comes because of the dedication of the monsters themselves. This group of un-dead ogres really seemed to knock themselves out at trying to scare the crowd.

Since Magic Mountain really turns on their fog machines full-blast, this can be easier than one might imagine. A monster can seem to come out of thin air!

One advantage to having a shorter period when monsters perform is that during their brief stint "on stage," they really perform!

Many of the monsters at the Magic Mountain Fright Fest shy away from having their pictures taken. Some turn their backs, others walk away, and many are just to busy prowling for new guests to terrify to stop for the camera.

Others, like the monsters seen in pictures on this page, seem to enjoy having their handiwork admired. After all, it did take each monster quite awhile to get into the costumes, masks, and all the makeup that these "scare actors" wear!

Many people at Six Flags Magic Mountain during the Halloween festivities ignore them altogether. After all, the rides are up & running, and many think of this as a good time to get rid of some of the crowds who'd otherwise be making the lines longer!

But, many people love the pulse-pounding fun of a good game of cat 'n mouse with the monsters. Most spend their time running away screaming...or doubling back to look for more monsters if they've actually managed to escape!

Others spend time trying to catch this interesting spectacle with their cameras. Despite the plentiful amount of monsters, it's not easy to get photos! The dense fog in the thick of the action makes every shot turn out foggy-white if flash is used; and makes pictures too dark when the flash is turned off, and can confuse the auto focus on your camera. Photos with fast moving subjects in low light are some of the hardest to take. Constantly moving monsters make nighttime flashless photo techniques blur. If you find yourself having trouble taking a picture, sometimes stepping away from the fog is just the easiest answer. Find more well lit areas without as much fog, and you will have more luck. Some of the areas are so dark and foggy that it can be very hard to take pictures even with a pro-level camera.

In the picture to your left, a monster walks down one of the scary Magic Mountain streets.

Don't worry---monsters don't run around in dense foggy areas wielding axes! All the blood you see at the celebration is strictly fake...

or IS IT???

Six Flags Fright Fest Special Effects

When there's fog and eerie lighting, then the monsters come out frighting!

Fog...and plenty of it! a major mood-setter at the Six Flags Magic Mountain Fright Fest.

Banks of fog billow over the crowd. And when it begins to thin out, more fog starts spewing from the machines which create it, once again. This creates an eerie atmosphere, and helps give the monsters plenty of places to hide.

In the following pictures, you can see the great use of lighting, fog and mist at the Six Flags Fright Fest.

To your left, you're viewing a picture of one of the many Jack o' lantern lights in the park. These, in combination with colored spotlights bathe the park in red, green, orange, and other hues.

In fact, if you've ever thought of using fog effects at your own party, the Magic Mountain Fright Fest is a great place to study the uses and effects of fog machines and lighting that goes with it.

Have you ever wondered how a fog machine works?

You can get a simple answer on the "How Stuff Works" website's fog-making page.

On the other hand, if you're considering buying or renting a fog machine for your own Halloween party...or if you simply are very curious and want to know "everything" about machine-made fog, there's a website you'll find extremely interesting.

That's the website. You'll find out quite a number of things you never knew about fake fog!

Here's a picture of a decoration in the daytime without the fog and lights.

What lies enshrouded within the fog bank?

As you can see here, there are some interesting things that you might miss.
