Are you looking for some family fun this Halloween? We love Halloween and all things Halloween related but it can get a little scary for younger kids. It’s hard to find a great Halloween event that is fun for the whole family. When you find the perfect balance it’s Halloween Magic!
We were invited to check out the opening of this years Fright Fest at Six Flags New England. My monster is a huge fan of thrill rides and already has his own season pass to Six Flags. He’s been a few times this year and it’s great “Daddy time” that he can enjoy. We weren’t sure how much Lovebug was going to enjoy rides so this was her first trip. Well, she is a daredevil at heart and we will be making many repeat trips to Six Flags next season.
Their annual Fright Fest kicked off last weekend with all the terrifying bells and whistles! Pumpkins, spiders and skeletons are “hanging” around to give Six Flags it’s creepy makeover. I love that it is totally ready for family fun before 6pm. The park is decorated for Halloween but not in a way that would terrify my three year old. During the day you will find:

Fright by Night
If you’re looking for something more terrifying stay in the park past 6pm for their “Fight by Night” segment of Fright Fest. I loved that they gave warning repeatedly throughout the day so we were ready to leave before the kids had to see anything scary. Staff readily gave us a heads up and announcements were made as 6pm approached. Perfect for a family fun day without a shock at the end. Night time terror includes:
Witness real live feats of danger and disgust performed by the Calvacade of the Odd.

We enjoyed a great day full of family fun. Rides were a blast and there were plenty of rides for Lovebug to enjoy. The kids loved being able to Trick or Treat and even participated in the Spooktacular Street Party! You can buy tickets and season passes in advance on their site and save time at the gate! Happy Halloween!!
