Back in black: Fright Fest returns to Great America

Nate Navarro, Staff Reporter


Students at RB love going to Fright Fest at Six Flags. The festival takes place during the Halloween season. Many of the park’s rollercoasters are decorated, and there are special areas dedicated for Fright Fest.

Sophomore Ethan Santoyo went to Fright Fest last year with some of his cousins, and went on the “themed” roller coasters.

“My favorite part of Fright Fest was the rollercoasters,” said Santoyo.

Many students at RB go to Fright Fest every year, usually to hang out with friends and have a good time. The students that go always have stories to tell of what happened, and many often go back the following year.

“I’m looking forward to the new additions at Fright Fest,” Santoyo said.

Many of the other students are looking forward to them, too. “Nox Returns For More Souls” and “All Hell Breaks Loose” are the new attractions this year and are going to bring in crowds.

During Fright Fest, Nox will be wandering the park with his beasts searching for unsuspecting prey. The guests this year are in for some stories to tell, if they make it out alive this time.

Young children are allowed to come to the park during Fright Fest, as long as they leave on time. There are designated spots for young kids that close at 5:00 p.m. to make sure that the little kids get out before the horror comes to life.
