JACKSON, N.J. — October 25, 2017 — This week, adults and children alike find themselves preparing for the tricks and treats of Halloween. The daunting task of concocting a costumed character is at the core of one of America’s favorite holidays. During Fright Fest at Six Flags Great Adventure, the professional makeup and special effects team conquers the daily challenge of transforming 225 everyday humans into moaning, snarling, Halloween-inspired beasts in just a few short hours. So, how do they do it?
