New Fright Fest, Holiday in the Park Details & Other 2020 Attractions/Upgrades

Six Flags Fiesta Texas recently held a Diamond/Diamond Elite 2020 Preview. The event included a presentation headed by the park’s president, Jeffrey Siebert, and went over a number of exciting details coming for this year’s Fright Fest, Holiday in the Park, and the 2020 season.

Upcoming General Park Updates

Texas Gunslinger

  • A new souvenir bottle refill station will open in Los Festivales within the next few weeks. The refill station will feature standard Coca-Cola fountains. A second refill station will be coming to Sangerfest Halle at a future date.

  • Texas Gunslinger, the park’s slingshot attraction, will not be removed to make way for Dare Devil Dive Flying Machines. After Fright Fest, it will be moved to the park’s Fiesta Bay Boardwalk section across from Thunder Beach Speedway!

  • New changes are coming to the park’s haunted house pricing system. Though haunted houses were free in the past, they will now require an upcharge to enjoy. The standard one-day admission pass will come in at $30 with other VIP upgrades available. The new pricing system lines up with all other Six Flags parks in the chain and will ideally cut down wait times for the general line and VIP line. Diamond Elite members will receive one free general admission pass each visit while Diamond members will receive free admission into one haunted house. These changes also support a wider variety of benefit upgrades between membership levels.

  • Infected is the park’s new 2019 scare zone coming to Rockville. A giant UFO will be featured on top of Pete’s Eats, measuring 27 feet wide. We’ve shared images of other massive props coming to the new scare zone on our social media outlets! New costumes will feature a crossover of alien and human creatures. Don’t forget that all scare zone experiences are free with your admission to Fright Fest.

  • The Arrival will return to Whistle Stop and Crackaxle Canyon. Scare zone monsters will ride into Whistle Stop on the train and terrorize guests in Crackaxle Canyon before they head to their respective scare zones.

  • Two all-new productions, Noche de los Muertos and Creature Feature II: Monsters in Paradise will debut for Fright Fest. Both House of Bones and Monster Mash Bash will return to the entertainment line-up with all-new production elements.

  • We’ve added a FULL daily show schedule for this year’s Fright Fest entertainment, which can be found by clicking below!
