Fright Fest officially began during the 1989 season at Six Flags Over Texas. However, Fiesta Texas was not born until 1992 nor managed under the Six Flags name until 1996. Six Flags Fiesta Texas is a leading park in terms of live entertainment and Fright Fest is no exception. The park's premier show, Monster Mash Bash, helped win Fiesta Texas the Golden Ticket for best shows 10 years in a row and continues to be a popular staple during Fright Fest.
Today, Fiesta Texas provides guests with numerous live shows, haunted houses, and scare zones. In 2016, Fiesta Texas was also the first Six Flags park to offer free admission to their haunted houses. Each year the park continues to extend their offerings line-up as well as other unique decor and theming around the park.

The park is offering several perks for these membership levels during their Fright Fest event:
|Six Flags Fiesta Texas will still provide a family-friendly atmosphere during the daytime hours of operation. However, once the sun sets, the atmosphere will change to a more frightening setting. The nighttime event is recommended for guests older than 12.|
|Fiesta Texas provides a handful of great entertainment during Fright Fest. One can't-miss show is Monster Mash Bash. This show takes place at the end of each night in Lone Star Lil's Amphitheater. We recommend that you arrive to shows early as they are quite popular during this time of season and seating is limited. More information regarding shows can be found in the Live Entertainment section above.|
A great aspect of Fright Fest is that all haunted houses are free with park admission. With free haunted houses comes longer lines, however. We recommend looking into one of the upgraded haunted house packages once at the park as it will make your visit more enjoyable and you will not spend your whole evening waiting in line. Pricing for upgraded packages can be found in the "Haunted Houses" section above.
Please note that the park typically offers these passes at a discount if you purchase on their main website.
We do not have a 100% guaranteed solution for avoiding crowds. This is one of the busiest times of the year to visit a Six Flags park. However, there are a few methods we have tried in the past that have helped:
|Fiesta Texas has added a handful of scare zones over recent years. While it is perfectly okay to walk through these during the day, they will transform into a different world at night. Scare zones are full of characters with the sole purpose of scaring guests around them. Please keep in mind that many of these areas are unavoidable when trying to reach certain park attractions and areas at night.|
|Fright Fest operates on select dates between September 13 and October 27 in 2019. Six Flags Fiesta Texas' main website has a full listing of all park hours.|
|Six Flags Fiesta Texas does close some rides and attractions at certain times during Fright Fest. These usually include smaller children's attractions. Did you know? We have a page listing all rides and attractions. Each dedicated ride page has the ability to show special information, such as scheduled ride closures, so be sure to check them out for special Fright Fest-related information.|
