AUSTELL, Ga. – Six Flags Over Georgia announced Atlanta’s biggest and most terrifying haunt, Fright Fest will unleash its terror beginning September 21.

Fright Fest features 16 wickedly haunted attractions, 12 pulse-pounding roller coasters, more than 200 zombies, back by popular demand is the 30-Hour Coffin Challenge.

“Fright Fest at Six Flags Over Georgia is home to the scariest and largest collection of hair-raising attractions in the region,” said Park President Dale Kaetzel. “A fully immersive in-park experience, along with our unparalleled collection of heart-pounding monster coasters with the lights turned off takes fear to a new level. No one does Halloween like Six Flags.”

This year, Fright Fest is turning up the terror with four new attractions, and the return of guest favorite scares, including:

  • Piggy’s Blood Shed, an all-new haunted maze, where bloody butchers are seething mad and out for revenge;
  • Dismantled, a new scare zone, illustrating the end of the world as we know it, ransacked by “The Wanderers” who roam the land preying on the fearful;
  • Seeds of Samhain, an all-new scare zone, hosting souls of the dead, beckoned and transformed into a festering pumping patch; and
  • The return of Alien Abduction, a 6,000 square foot haunted maze, where evil aliens are living, working, breeding and carrying out the most horrific experiments imaginable on human victims.

During Fright Fest, the park will host the second annual 30-Hour Coffin Challenge. A test of extreme endurance, six coffin dwellers will battle for their chance to win $600 in cash and prizes. The contestants must spend 30 hours in a wooden casket and compete in unnerving elimination challenges.
