After four weeks of spirited voting, USA Today readers have named Six Flags Magic Mountain’s Fright Fest the Best Theme Park Halloween Event in the country for the second consecutive time.

“It is such an honour to be recognised back-to-back by our fans for the efforts we have made to make Fright Fest the biggest, the best, and the scariest Halloween event in Southern California,” said park president, Bonnie Sherman Weber.

“To be chosen by USA Today readers once again as the best in the country is incredible and underscores Six Flags’ ongoing commitment to raise the bar and become the premier ‘must-do experience’ and the gold standard for Halloween events, bar none.”

Halloween celebrations continue to gain popularity across the US, and Six Flags Magic Mountain sits in one of the most competitive theme park markets in the world.

Over the last seven years, the 260-acre Los Angeles theme park has upped the scare factor and quality to an entirely new level with multi-year, multi-million dollar investments resulting in rave reviews from guests.

Now touting some of the most creative and outlandish Halloween attractions in the country, Six Flags Magic Mountain’s 2017 lineup is the biggest and scariest in the park’s history, featuring mazes, scare zones, shows, haunted attractions and roving ‘scare-actors’.

Fright Fest runs from September 29 to October 29.
