Employees may be dressed up as mummies while loading riders onto the Demon's coaster seats. On the Krazy Kars, they may have on ghost costumes while they manage their ride. Some employees ride along with the guests, adding a bit of Halloween fun. Six Flags tend to take it easy on the little kids, with more spooky ghosts and less of the blood and gore. Guests never know when to expect a monster or ghost to pop out of the shadows or if the servers at the eateries are wearing witches hat and big crooked noses.
Guests are not allowed to wear costumes, face masks or full face makeup during Fright Fest. This is for safety reasons since loose masks and pieces of costumes can fly off when on a high speed ride. It's also so park officials can tell their employees apart from the guests.Learn more about Geography
