5 Six Flags Fright Fest mazes you shouldn't miss

Six Flags parks all across the country celebrate this time of year with Fright Fest, adding in scare zones and haunted attractions on top of the rides and thrills you already love. To celebrate the spooky season, we’re highlighting some of our favorite scares from Six Flags parks across the country.
Six Flags Over Texas 

Hell Block 6

The newest haunted maze in Six Flags Over Texas takes place in a prison. You’ve been accused of a crime you didn’t commit, but upon entering the warden’s courtroom you soon realize "innocent until proven guilty" doesn’t apply here. You’re immediately escorted to the scariest prison imaginable where the inmates are pure evil, hoping you’ll be their next victim. If you think bringing family or friends along will help, think again. Participants can easily become separated in this thrilling maze that is guaranteed to warrant screams from the bravest thrill seekers.

Cirkus Berzerkus

If clowns terrify you, Cirkus Berzerkus will haunt your dreams for nights to come. Visitors to this eye-popping maze are supplied with 3D glasses that make it difficult to determine what’s real and what’s not. Upon entering, you'll be lulled into a feeling of ease by the bright colors that make it seem as if you’re in a video game. You’ll quickly realize your only friend is the exit door. Good luck finding it.

Midnight Museum of the Macabre

This museum is filled with items from past sideshows and gruesome exhibits, but there’s no time to appreciate these morbid displays as you are bombarded by freaks jumping out from the dark corners of the museum. The collection of creepy dolls and unidentified “things” in formaldehyde is impressive. At one point, the floor feels as if it will collapse and drop you into the deep, dark basement of the morbid maze.

Buried Alive Haunted House

Upon entering Buried Alive, you’ll be welcomed by a burly coal miner outlining the rules of the house. Afterwards, you’ll ride in a creepy elevator that will plunge you into the haunted tunnels and passageways beneath Crackaxle Canyon. Once you're in the depths of the caverns, beware the forgotten souls of doomed miners. The ending features a bizarre ritual that will leave you disturbed long after exiting the maze.

Six Flags St. Louis


Six Flags St. Louis made news with the 2018 Fright Fest Coffin Challenge, in which some (un)lucky participants spent 30 hours in a “lightly used” coffin. It is always exciting to see such innovative ways Fright Fest conjures up scares, and often the most terrifying situations are centered around our most basic fears. In the case of the iconic maze Blackout, prepare to have your fear of darkness exploited. This is the only maze that leaves visitors completely in the dark, so you’ll have to feel and fumble through spider-webs, over scurrying critters, and more. And if your eyes ever adjust and you do happen to catch a glimpse of the beings that roam this maze, you’ll wish you hadn’t.
