If you are a haunted attraction junkie like I am, you are going to want to walk through some of Six Flags New England’s amazing haunted houses, but before you get started, you are going to want to make sure you have a Scream Pass.
Here are your Scream Pass options:
- One Day Scream Pass: Unlimited Admission to all Premium Haunted Attractions day of purchase.
- Season Scream Pass – Unlimited admission to all Premium Haunted Attractions every day of Fright Fest!
- VIP – VIP front of line access upgrade available for both One Day Scream Pass and Season Scream Pass!
You can purchase your Scream Pass at the Main Gate, Main Street Rentals, Main St. Gazebo, Crabby Jack’s, Midnight Mansion, and Picnic Grove entrance. The Scream Pass is non-refundable and all attractions close when the park closes. Attraction popularity and lines increase as the night goes on, so you should plan accordingly.

As you walk through the park, you will notice haunt zones that come alive with zombies, witches and other monsters starting at 6 pm every night. If you have little ones with you, you may want a “No Boo” necklace to ward off monsters, which is available at any gift shop. They do NOT work in our Premium Haunted Attractions, but do work in the haunt zones.
Here are all the Haunt Zones at the park:
Undead Alley: This is the site where Mayor Slayer emerged to reign over Fright Fest. Zombies freshly unearthed from their graves roam the deserted graveyard.

Roswell/Area 51: The Inter-Galactic Alien Invasion has begun! Be cautious of alien beings and flying saucers in Rockville USA.
