icon_STOPPark News - (8/22/16) A reader sent in a picture of a banner they saw posted up at The Great Escape this weekend promoting that this year's version of Fright Fest at the park would also include all the haunted houses for FREE!


  Great news and as I said when SF Fiesta Texas announced that they would be doing it as well, this is a move that has been needed for a long time at the parks under Six Flags control.
    (8/9/16) Six Flags is adding even more VR Coaster experiences to their parks with the announcement of a "Rage of the Gargoyles" experience coming to The Demon at Six Flags Great America and to Kong at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom. Look for this new experience to open sometime in September to go with Fright Fest at Discovery Kingdom, but it will kick off on August 13th at SFGAm.
    Six More coasters at other Six Flags parks will also launch the same VR Coaster experience, though I haven't been able to uncover the entire list yet. So far I've also found that Skull Mountain at SFGAdv and it is expected to replace all of "The New Revolution" experiences that have already opened at other Six Flags parks which would be SFOG on Dare Devil Dive Coaster, SFMM on Revolution at La Ronde on Goliath, SFOT on Shockwave.
