Six Flags New England 2017 Fright Fest Review
I realized, even though I posted Vlog #2 , showing off Fright Fest, I never really spoke on the experience and what I thought about it !
We were invited to Fright Fest Media Day as you all know by now . We checked in and got everything we needed for the evening. Our badges got us to be able to skip the line on all the haunts & rides in the park that evening, so that was an extra bonus. They did have some really great food in front of Goliath, which they call Fright Fest Meal Deal and can also be used along with your dining pass. You can choose either Pulled pork or BBQ Chicken . You can also choose both meats for $2 plus your meal plan. Also served with baked beans with a side of Baked Potato or Corn On The Cob ! For the value its honestly worth it !
After we ate, we decided to check out ” The Awakening ” which they changed the song, but still a great show ! it really hypes you up for what’s to come through out the night ! I really do love when Mayor Slayer points & says ” Get Em ” I love the crowd reaction ! After this we headed down to the picnic grove and headed right to Slasher Circus 3D , which honestly is one of my favorite Haunts at the park. It was filled to the Brim with actors and it was pure chaos ! After that we headed to The Laboratory and the cool thing is no more flash light & rope ! I know last year I was upset at the name change , but the haunt is pretty decent ! not my favorite, but still not horrible. Actors were really doing their job really well ! After we came out, I bumped into AJ and Big Mike from The Big Mike Road Show ! so we went through Slasher Circus 3D with Big Mike !
Once the outdoor haunts opened a few moments later we went to Aftermath : Zombies revenge – Again the actors were doing a great job and there were a few spots that could of had a few more actors and more zombies lurking, but still another awesome haunt ! We moved to Wicked Woods and it just seems SFNE really stepped up their game with Fright Fest this year, with more actors and actors giving it their all !! I do hope over time that the theme changes as , its starting to get old . While its nicely done, I would just like some change .
We then moved back into the park to go to Midnight Mansion and again another great haunt, actors everywhere, it was fun, but this one needs a re theme, its been basically the same for many years and when you do the haunts every year, some things become stale and boring to an extent. Its not a dig or a bash to the park because they seem to try and add more stuff year after year , from my perspective when going to haunts, I do not judge a haunt based on how they scare me because nobody does anymore, I go to see others around me get scared and how the props and theme play out and SFNE actually does a really great job of that . Could Fright Fest be up for a re theme in the future? I hope so, but I will continue to enjoy it !!!
Now as for the Haunt zones, this was always their weak point ! They always had some cool props, but not enough actors and this year, they stepped it up and it felt like the park started listening and did something about it ! I know SFNE is not Universal and they don’t pretend to be ! What Six Flags is and does works, especially this year ! Its all in how you approach what you are looking for in you haunting activities. If your looking to be scared to death and you keep going to other places and get scared, need to get out of the new England area !!! If your looking what I was talking about, then what SFNE Fright Fest brings works and it awesome and gave me a new appreciation for Fright Fest !
Undead alley – Great Scare Zone with more actors then usual. IM hoping they can add some more props and actors, but still a great Scare one, just wish the truck had its grinding blades on it !
CarnEvil – New for this year over by The Joker and Tea Cups. During the day , it doesn’t look like much, but at night it transforms into a nice clowny feel, to go along with CREEP SHOW FREAK SHOW ! They knocked this out the park.
Main Street Graveyard – It seems to get smaller and smaller every year in the middle, but more stuff gets added to the sides from the carousel down ! its decent , but gets the job done.
Demon District ahs a new home in the DC Hero’s Area, . Honestly where that giant demon area is the best part , the rest just looks thrown together and odd . I hope they can fix this.
There wasn’t much going on in the Crack Axle Area so its kind of a waste, but its where Mortys Casket Show is over by JB”s and that is worth it ! Great character and great show !!
Rockville used to have the alien themed scare zone , but there is nothing, maybe a future theme change is in order ?
There is two shows at the park I highly recommend ! CREEP SHOW FREAK SHOW & GRAVEYARD GROOVE !
Creep Show – Freak SHOW – Staring your 15th best Stunt man in the World and his lovely sword swallowing side kick, they put on one hell of a show in front of The Joker ! Who doesn’t like mouse traps , Broken Glass, Swords, Nails and Fire !!! If you watch our Fright Fest Vlog below you can see everything I’m talking about here ! Let me tell you, I’m a huge fan of FREAK Shows, its a dying style of entertainment , but when you find an awesome freak show it brings excitement. Just like down in Coney Island ! This show brings everything I’m looking for in a FREAK SHOW !!! When your at the park, make sure you take some time to check these two out its worth every second of your time !!!
Graveyard Groove – SFNE was missing a show worth watching during Fright Fest since Dead mans Party Vanished . Now with this show, while not Dead Mans Party, this show is still awesome ! you can find the full performance on our YouTube page ! The stage set is amazing, the singers do a fantastic job ! it is a show , not to miss when going in for Fright Fest !!!
Hope you enjoyed this Review of Fright Fest ! Enjoy the Videos Below !!!
