General Tips & Info

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 below.

Free Haunted Houses

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.

Haunted Express Passes

  • Express Pass - $25 | Guests can enjoy one express entry to each (6) of the park's haunted houses. Fiesta Texas states that these passes are on limited supply each night.

  • Unlimited Express Pass - $30 | Unlimited express entry to all of the park's haunted houses.

  • The Slasher Pass - $35 | Unlimited express entry to all of the park's haunted houses PLUS reserved seating at Monster Mash Bash.

*Please note that the park typically offers these passes at a discount if you purchase on their main website.

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 at night.

When does Fright Fest operate?

Fright Fest will take place from September 15 through October 31 during the 2017 season. Please check out the park's official operating schedule for more details.
