Can You Wear Costumes to Six Flags Fright Fest?

Guests under the age of 12 years old are able to wear costumes, with a few limitations. As long as they are with an adult family member, those guests can wear a full costume, mask and/or face paint.

However, the masks worn may not have any bloody/gory features.

All costumes worn should be appropriate for a family-oriented environment.

Lastly guests can bring toy accessories as long as they are plastic, don't contain any type of 'bloody features', and aren't sharp such as:

  • Plastic Swords
  • Magic Wands
  • Crowns
  • Wearable Ears

What About Guests Over the Age of 12?

According to the Six Flags site, no costumes are allowed for any guest over the age of 12.

Why Does Six Flags Have These Costume Rules?

For the safety of both the scarers as well as the visitors.

If costumes were allowed for regular adult visitors, other guests could easily mistake them as 'scarers' as they walk around the dark-lit park's scare zones and haunted houses.

Children on the other-hand are allowed to wear costumes to an extent, as they won't be mistaken as 'scarers' during the event, as they aren't old enough to work at the event.

Costume Rule in Previous Years

In previous years, some Six Flags allowed adults to wear costumes to an extent. 

Some of the notable rules included:

  • No Masks
  • Costumes must not have inappropriate language or photos
  • Partial face paint allowed as long as facial features aren't disguised
  • No hand-held accessories
