I’m Christine, a gal obsessed with haunts, escape rooms and other oddities.

This blog is a passion project of mine. The fact that I personally do all of the reviews here and on my YouTube channel is what really makes TheHauntGirl.com stand out from other review sites. There is no team, just me. Most of my entries are about the west coast since that is where I live, however I also love to travel. In 2018 I was approached by USA Today to be one of their Ten Best List experts for haunted attractions & escape rooms.

Six Flags Magic Mountain Resurrects Its Fright Fest® Line-up with More Frights Than Ever!


The Fear is Calling


LOS ANGELES, Calif. — August 27, 2021 — Six Flags Magic Mountain’s 28th season of Fright Fest is back with 24 terrifying nights of monsters, ghouls, and crazed characters ready to strike fear in any one who crosses their path. The bone-chilling lineup of haunted attractions features two new spine-tingling scare zones, a dark and twisted photo experience, two new mind-numbing shows, and added days. Six Flags Magic Mountain leaves no tombstone unturned to deliver what guests want most…an all-out terrifying experience.


Fright Fest, presented by Snickers®, boasts a grand total of 14 electrifying mazes and dare-to- enter scare zones with nightmarish zombies lurking around every corner. To take fright to a new extreme, Six Flags Magic Mountain is also adding a sinister element to some of the park’s monster coasters by turning off the lights, leaving riders to face their fears in total darkness.


“Fright Fest is one of the top-rated theme park Halloween events in the country and we couldn’t be more excited to bring this legacy event back to the park. To enhance the fright factor this year, we are introducing two new scare zones with unexpected, dark surprises around every corner and two new shows guaranteed to make your blood run cold”, said Park President Don McCoy. “And, to give Southern California’s thrill-seekers more opportunity to ‘find their fright,’ we’ve expanded our calendar to include 24 terror-filled Fright Fest nights with an incredible line up of hair-raising entertainment,” added McCoy.


Highlights of this year’s new Fright Fest lineup include:
• The Deadzone, located in the newest area of the park, The Underground, unleashes a
new renegade group of cyberpunk zombies that feed on unsuspected visitors;
• Terror Rising – Dark Developments, where everyone’s worst nightmares rise up from
the depths of hell and prey on the innocent who dare to enter this haunted cemetery.
Beware of the dark developments that could haunt you for all eternity;
• Grave Games is a dangerous and daring show featuring acts of crossbows and fire
juggling;
• Dark Minds is a mentalist show exploring the deep, disturbing thoughts lurking within
the darkest depths of the mind;

Popular returning mazes that incorporate state-of-the-art makeup, props, and special effects, include:
• Willoughby’s Resurrected where the haunts of Ghostober take on dark visions of spirits, haunted artifacts, and supernatural investigations gone wrong. Brought to Fright Fest by Discovery+, the streaming home of Halloween;
• Condemned – Forever Damned is full of horrific haunts of a dilapidated home where the walls are alive and the spirits of those who once lived there unleash their fury on anyone who dares enter;
• Vault 666 Unlocked returns as the fan-favorite maze, Vault 666, only this time demonic relics are locked in a dark and sinister antique shop, casting spells and haunting those who try and steal them;
• Sewer of Souls takes guests into an underground world of lost souls and terrifying tunnels where evil oozes;
•Aftermath2:ChaosRisingistheregion’slargestoutdoormaze,coveringmorethan 40,000 square feet where the spirits of the dead and the near-dead inhabit a post- apocalyptic city with larger-than-life props, fire, fog, and other special effects; and
• Red’s Revenge, over the river and through the woods to Grandmother’s house they go, but in this “scarytale” the roles are reversed as guests and the wolf are hunted by Red and her demonic minions.
Along with The Deadzone and Terror Rising – Dark Developments, six additional scare zones around the park leave guests nowhere to hide and screaming to get out unscathed. They include:
• Beware of the dark corners in City Under Siege, where the clowns are loose and running rampant through the streets;
• Witches Lair returns to this year’s horror-filled offering of haunts as the City of METROPOLISTM is transformed into a haven for wicked spells and black magic;
• Guests who enter the park through Demon’s Door should be prepared for their mind and body to be completely taken over by the evil spirits that await;
• Steam-spewing mechanical beasts relentlessly hunt down their victims in TERRORtory Twisted;
• Nightmares – A Twisted Fantasy, where childhood favorite bedtime stories take on a perverse twist; and
• Freak out on Exile Hill when unimaginable sinister souls appear without warning.
Spooktacular shows include the new Grave Games located in the Golden Bear Plaza and Dark Minds in the Gearworks Theater, the ghoulish Sliders of the Night show in DC UNIVERSETM, plus the very popular VooDoo Nights, where ghoul rock goes pop with today’s hits. Guests will want to dust off those thriller moves and join in the fun in the Full Throttle Plaza.
Guests can literally face their fears in the shadows when the lights go out on some of the park’s iconic coasters during Fright Fest, including Twisted Colossus, Viper, X2, Scream, Goliath, Apocalypse, and more.
For the little monsters, a Trick-or-Treat Trail and Halloween crafts round out the frightfully fun family activities during the day.
