With the clock ticking down on summer 2020, people are starting to look forward to fall and all of the events that come with the cooler weather, especially the scares of Halloween.

While 2020 has been plenty scary in and of itself, Six Flags Great Adventure is bringing back the much loved Fright Fest celebration and adjusting it for the new landscape this year with their first Hallowfest.

Hallowfest will keep the new health practices going that Great Adventure implemented in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, like reservations for park entry and temperature checks and masks for both guests and team members.

As with Fright Fest, Great Adventure is promising, "thrills by day and chills by night", with the family friendly fun during the day, like fall landscaping (think pumpkins, cornstalks, hay bales, etc), a trick-or-treat trail for kids with individually wrapped candy, and a hay bale maze.

Then, when 6:00 P.M. rolls around, the "chills by night" part ramps up as they set the mood with fog, sinister music, and creepy lighting.

And, of course the rides will be roaring across their tracks throughout the park.

The announcement also outlined a number of the new health and safety guidelines for 2020, like the aforementioned masks for all team members, six feet distances being enforced, and no indoor attractions like haunted houses this year.

As for when you can check out Hallowfest, the spooky fun starts on Friday, September 18 and will run weekends through Sunday, November 1st.

Hours will be Friday evenings starting at 5:00 P.M. and Saturdays and Sundays from 2:00 - 10:00 P.M.

The Wild Safari Drive-Through Adventure will also stay open daily through September 27th, then on weekends through Thanksgiving.
