It's nearly Halloween season, but Six Flags has still been less than forthcoming with their Fright Fest plans. I've put together a Six Flags Fright Fest overview with as much information as I was able to gather, including dates and other selected details. Parks across the entire chain will be holding spooky events, generally on weekends, with some locations kicking off the frightful antics starting September 28. Of course, there will be haunted mazes, costumed ghouls, special shows, and rides. Here are a couple of weird, um, tidbits I was able to discover: Six Flags will be upping the gross-out factor this year by offering the Wheel of Fright and Coffin of Fear. For the former, intrepid guests will be able to earn the right to skip to the front of the lines at the haunted houses and select rides by spinning a wheel and scarfing down the indicated item. Among the delicacies: live cockroaches, wax worms, crickets, and nightcrawlers, as well as Rocky Mountain oysters and Habanera peppers. Hey, at least the Rocky Mountain oysters won't be live. If skipping the lines is worth that much to you, God bless you. I'm on a strict nightcrawler-free diet, thank you very much. Guests willing to face the Coffin of Fear challenge must stay in a coffin filled with (live!) mealworms for at least one minute to win some kind of a prize--new underwear, perhaps? Most of Six Flags' roller coasters and non-water rides will be operating during the Fright Fest events. Read more about Six Flags 2007 Fright Fest events.
