Trip Advisor Really Fun
Oct 21, 2014 by: Suzy369 from Washington Dc, District Of Columbia
I went to Six Flags outside of Washington DC for Fright Fest this year. I had a really great time! There were no lines for the rides, you could go on them as many times as you wanted. During the day, the park is very family friendly. There are no ghouls walking around or anything to frighten kids. The children would dress up in Halloween costumes which was fun to see. As the sun went down around 7:00 p.m., the scary music started playing and all the characters came out to scare you. I had fun going on the rides again and again. I was able to ride everything I wanted to and then some. Also, for the first time this year I went on the free fall swing. They strap you in, then pull you up really high with a rope and let you drop. It is a total free fall until the rope catches you and you swing out above the heads of all the people below. It was so much fun! The price on this was perfect. With a season pass it was $11 and then they had a park special that was buy one get one free. Two people could do this for the price of one, only $11! So all in all, I had a great time. I want to go back every year for Fright Fest. The cool air is refreshing and the lines are quick. It is the best time of year to attend.

They have poor service, almost everyone seems angry when you asked for a question or when you want to buy food.

Trip Advisor Terrible

Went for fright fest. When first getting there, the security guard told my 12 year old daughter to take her face paint off. Spoke to management who just bent over and said that the rules were 12 and under can only were face paint. When I explained my daughter was 12 we were told she was too tall. She is 5'3". There is no rules on how short you need to be to wear a costume (there were also 2 teens in front of us wearing very cute pajama type costumes who were not allowed in unless they changed or covered up). Went to the restroom to wash her paint off and there were no mirrors or paper-towels. I purchased tickets online. Was told they were for NJ and that I would have to purchase new tickets here in order to get a refund. Still awaiting my $250 refund. The Haunted Houses were no better than a $20 admission to regular haunts in the area. Save your money!!! It's not worth it!!!!!!



Trip Advisor In a Word: "GHETTO"
Oct 06, 2014 by: SheBytheBay from Annapolis, MD
Packs of urban youth running around in gang like clothing. Mayhem. Pushing. Not enough security to control crowds. People jumping out of their cars and fighting over parking spaces. Horrible. Expensive. Avoid!
