Six Flags Great America is wrapping up the year with two incredible celebrations – Fright Fest and Last Call Fall Festival. The demon overlord, Nox, summons the dead for the longest Fright Fest in the history of this Halloween event. With seven sinful weekends, featuring six haunted houses and ten hair-raising shows, Fright Fest will show no mercy as hundreds of monsters descend on this scream park each night.


Last Call Fall Festival 
Beer, Food, Rides! Come enjoy the fall weather with a craft beer, unique food offerings and of course, coasters!
When: Saturdays and Sundays November 4 - 19
Where: Six Flags Great America ● 1 Great America Parkway, Gurnee, IL



While Fright Fest runs until Halloween we will have additional operating days following Fright Fest. To culminate the longest season in Six Flags Great America history we will be hosting Last Call Fall Festival. This event will include craft beer, unique food items, and coasters.



“We all know fall means Fright Fest, but now we have even more to offer!” says Six Flags Great America park president, Hank Salemi. “Our guests and season pass holders want more time at the park, so we are delivering by adding an extra weekend of Fright Fest and three weekends of our all-new Last Call Fall Festival.”



4 Things to Do Before the Sun Goes Down
The entire family can enjoy a beautiful fall day at the park before the monsters come out to play. Join us for not-so-scary daytime fun starting at 11 a.​m. each day. Let the kids (under age 12) dress in their costumes and embark on a trick-or-treat adventure, collecting candy around the park. 


Take a photo with our friendly monsters who happen to look a lot like your favorite Looney Tunes characters dressed in their seasonal outfits, next to a fall backdrop of tombstones, scarecrows, and pumpkins. We also have fun Halloween sing-a-longs and ghoulish dance parties. Visit before the sun sets and you'll also get to ride all your favorite coasters and family attractions – it's a whole different experience after dark!









Fright by Night
Fright Fest at SFGA has long been a family favorite of ours. It's mild fun during the day, so younger kids can come out to play, and full on fright by night, from 6pm on.
