Six Flags Over Texas has always had an abundance of live entertainment during their Fright Fest event, many running for quite a long period of time. Howl, a rock show, ran in the park for over a decade before ending a few seasons ago. Here is how the show line-up looks as of 2017:
Welcome to Arania's Nightmare
Playing in the David Blackburn Southern Palace Theatre, a classic with many park guests that is based on Arania, the black widow bride, searching for her 14th husband after all other husbands have mysteriously met their deaths.
Each evening, the park starts off their scare zone activity with an awakening of all the monsters and ghouls at the Front Gate.
Haunted houses have been a Fright Fest staple since the first season of the event in 1989. The park provides safe haunted houses with a variety of themes that can be suitable for multiple audiences. Here was the 2017 haunted house line-up:
We hope you aren't afraid of the dark. Blackout puts its visitors in complete darkness throughout the whole duration of this haunted house. Beware of the other creatures lurking in the dark. Located in Gotham City.
Cadaver Hall Morgue
Located inside Texas Arena, Cadaver Hall Morgue is full of creatures that may not be so dead. Try to avoid as much as you can, though the staff in the morgue isn't any safer than those who were supposed to have passed on.
Also located inside of Texas Arena lies the horrors of anyone who is scared of clowns. Cirkus Berzerkus is a maze of clown madness. Don't forget that you will have 3D glasses on the entire time.
Piggy's Blood Shed
Perhaps the most menacing haunted house of them all, Piggy's Blood Shed provides intense scares. Come into Piggy's restaurant for a home-cooked meal only to realize you are the prime attraction to be an addition to the menu. Located in the Texas section.
Located near Titan, be on the lookout for a war-like environment in which zombies prowl. You must attempt to escape in one piece as your human flesh will be the prime target of these creatures.
Scare zones initially disappeared for a few seasons but started phasing back into the park. Currently, Six Flags Over Texas is actively adding more scare zones as the seasons progress. Existing scare zones also tend to receive more theming each season. Here's a look at what the park offered in 2017:
Right at the front of the park stands Bio-Mech Sector, an old power plant. Nobody is too sure about what keeps happening at this old plant other than that people continue to disappear.
In 1787, a terrible disaster happened in the Boomtown coal mines. Due to a dynamite mishap, the mine collapsed and all miners were trapped and killed. Their spirits became trapped in the mines forever.
Freaktown Side Show
This side show was once the talk of the town. However, the most popular performers eventually left leaving nothing but the real freaks. Outsiders are not typically welcomed here. Located in USA.
Beware as these mutated, human-sized monsters roam the Texas section. They sleep during the day and awaken at night to prey on the most frightened guests that dare take these pathways.
Texas Scare-a-Tory takes the wild, wild west to a whole new level. One day a plague quickly took over this flourishing town. Now all that is left are the angry souls of those who felt cheated.
Voodoo Swamp is quite the mysterious place. Take this path along the water and hope that you can see yourself to the other end. Many creatures lurk in this scare zone and they are well-hidden. Located in Tower.
