Six Flags Great Adventure has brought back their annual Fright Fest event to the New Jersey park, offering more surprises than just what lurks in darkened halls.

It’s best to attend this event with an open mind about what makes Halloween entertainment fun – perhaps not hunting just for haunted mazes and scare zones, instead focusing on what’s particularly unique about Fright Fest.

Reflections of the Dead is a delightfully devilish take on the classic mirror maze, providing thrill seekers a chance to laugh and scream their way through its twisted and confusing passageways in an attempt to find their way out – complete with plenty of startles along the way.

Xpedition Dino: Survival is an unusual opportunity to walk through the wicked woods and get up-close encounters with larger-than-life animatronic dinosaurs. While those afraid of the dark might find this to be scary, most visitors will find joy in discovering each new dino sighting along the way.

The park also packs a variety of live entertainment, including stage shows and long-running sideshow oddities act.

Combined with the park’s many famous rides, these after-dark experiences make Fright Fest an opportunity for a different kind of Halloween adventure.
