Fright Fest officially began during the 1989 season at Six Flags Over Texas. However, Fiesta Texas didn’t officially open until 1992 nor was the park 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. 2019 features two new live productions and a refresh of House of Bones and Monster Mash Bash! Each year, the park continues to extend their offerings line-up as well as other unique theming around the park, including large-scale decor pieces in various scare zones.

Both Diamond and Diamond Elite members are granted priority show entry for all live shows at Six Flags Fiesta Texas. Please note that priority show entry for Monster Mash Bash is located at the Crackaxle Canyon entrance of Lone Star Lil's Amphitheater. Diamond/Diamond Elite members must present a valid pass for early entry.

Thrills by Day, Fright by Night
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.

Award-Winning Entertainment
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.

Unavoidable Scare Zones
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.
Tips for Avoiding Crowds
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:
  • Go earlier in the season. Fright Fest starts in September. You will likely not run into the heavy crowds that are present the closer it gets to Halloween.
  • Go on an off-day. Have you thought about going to Fright Fest during the week on a Friday? This has sometimes been a great way to avoid the weekend crowd.
  • Do not go on coupon dates. If there is a deal for bringing friends free or discounted tickets we highly recommend that you do not go to the park if you are bothered by large crowds.
  • Try going on a Sunday. This isn't always the case, but sometimes Sunday is a less-crowded day than Saturday. We still think the closer it gets to Halloween the busier Sundays will inevitably get.

Ride Closures
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.

When is the park open for Fright Fest?
