JACKSON, NJ — October 5, 2015 — Six Flags Great Adventure and its sister parks throughout North America want Halloween enthusiasts to show their zombie spirit this fall. People everywhere are encouraged to put their best rotting foot forward by taking fun, family-friendly selfies in their favorite places and sharing them on social media with #IAmFrightFest.
“People just have a tremendous love for Halloween – getting dressed up and scary, and being out and about in character to share in the fun that the holiday creates. I think the zombie culture as a whole is widely appealing to every age and demographic…everyone loves zombies, adults and children alike, so why not share this love of Halloween and the spirit of Six Flags Fright Fest with others on social media,” said Jason Meehan, founder of the New Jersey Zombie Walk, one of the largest walks of its kind in the world.
Walking a dog, washing a car or posing in front of a local landmark—typical, “normal” activities have a frightfully fun twist when dressed as a zombie. Participants are encouraged to wear tattered or imitation blood-splattered clothing and makeup in a variety of colors including red, white, black, purple and green. Photos should be family-friendly and free of images or words that could be considered inappropriate, vulgar or offensive. Participants should adhere to all local, state and federal laws and photograph only in safe locations.
In addition to this national zombie celebration, Six Flags Great Adventure promises its biggest, scariest Fright Fest® in history this fall with 22 Halloween-themed attractions including three new haunts – Big Top Terror, Blood Shed and Demon District. The seven-week festival that features family-friendly Thrills by Day and a zombie-filled Fright by Night runs weekends through Nov. 1 and includes admission to some of the world’s best and most terrifying thrill rides.
