We filed into the convention hall for a presentation on Six Flags Magic Mountain Fright Fest 2021. What is coming for the Southern California event? Well, we got plenty of answers from the presentation at Midsummer Scream Presents Awaken The Spirits. The normal event for midsummer surrounding all things horror, was held at the Pasadena Convention Center this year. The panel of Fright Fest creatives and makeup artists gave us all we needed to know and then some about the upcoming Halloween event.

The Mazes And Scare Zones Of Fright Fest 2021

Fright Fest 2021 has six mazes for you to go through. The mazes are: Red’s Revenge, Condamned, Sewer of Souls, Vault 666 Unlocked, Aftermath 2 Chaos Rising, and Willoughby’s Resurrected. The panel of experts were really excited about all of the mazes, but had some information about the upcoming Scare Zones as well. The one that they highlighted the most was The Deadzone. It’s inspired by Cyberpunk 2077 and has Cyberpunk Zombies. The panel described it as “high-tech, low-lifes”. Full of LED lighting, new costumes and makeup, the panel described it almost as a “maze within a scare zone”.

The Deadzone is just one of eight scare zones throughout the park for Fright Fest this year. They’ll also have new Slider shows, a Mentalist show called Dark Minds, and the Unleash show is moving to a new location. When Fright Fest starts at 7:00pm each night, you can check out the opening show with all the monsters for the day near Twisted Colossus.

For people who just want to ride the coasters, or take a break in between mazes, the Terror Tracks are back this year. You’ll get to ride a majority of the coasters in the park in the dark, with no external lights on.
