Halloween Fun at Amusement Parks


<< More Halloween Fun


It seems that even our most beloved amusement parks can’t escape getting into the Halloween spirit each year! From local destinations to regional family hotspots, many of your favorite theme parks open their doors each fall to let the spooks, ghouls, and frights in — all while offering you a chance to get into the spirit, too! Check them out below, shown in order of distance from Dulles International Airport.


Six Flags’ HALLOWFEST | Upper Marlboro, MD
About 50-miles from Dulles International Airport

Six Flags America is leading the way and providing a safe environment for the all-new HALLOWFEST. Their Halloween-inspired experience provided plenty of thrills by day and chills by night from October 3-November 1, 2020.

By day, they’re pumpkin spicing things up in the park with little masked witches and goblins in mind! During the day, HALLOWFEST will be complete with fall family favorite activities such as kid-centric corn mazes, Halloween shows, themed attractions, their popular Trick-or-Treat Trail! By night, daredevils can put their fears to the test by riding coasters in total darkness while scaring up an appetite for tasty hallow-treats along the way. Creepy fog, eerie lighting, and sinister music will create the perfect backdrop for nighttime scares and chills.
