Porterville Recorder - - COMMUNITY / FAVORITES -

LOS AN­GE­LES — 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.

Even ghouls en­joy the mon­ster coast­ers at Six Flags Magic Moun­tain's Fright Fest, voted #1 Theme Park Hal­loween Event in 2017.

“It is such an honor to be rec­og­nized back-to­back 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 United States 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 mul­ti­year, 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 13 elec­tri­fy­ing mazes and dare-to-en­ter scare zones—in­clud­ing some of the most unique scare zones ever—new shows, haunted rides and at­trac­tions, and ex­tra­or­di­nary rov­ing “scare­ac­tors.” And now, due to its huge pop­u­lar­ity and in­creas­ing de­mand, the park has ex­panded the cal­en­dar to a record 21 days of op­er­a­tion.

Six Flags Magic Moun­tain's sis­ter parks, Six Flags Over Texas, lo­cated in Ar­ling­ton, Texas, and Six Flags Fi­esta Texas in San An­to­nio, Texas, were also named one of Amer­ica's best scream parks, com­ing in sixth and 10 th place re­spec­tively, mak­ing Six Flags Fright Fest a coast-to­coast pow­er­house. Fright Fest is hosted by all 13 Six Flags theme parks.
