A Terrifying 'Zombie Zoo' Just Opened In Georgia

Terrifying, but a grand ole time 🎢
Six Flags Over Georgia Hallowfest Has Five New Terrifying Scare Zones

Disney World, Universal, and many other amusement parks around the US may have already started transforming for the fall and Halloween season. Six Flags Over Georgia is no exception, and their HALLOWFEST nights have already started. You can get spooked out of your mind when the sun goes down where the monsters come out at night.

Six Flags Over Georgia has replaced their Fright Fest event with HALLOWFEST this year. Some changes have been made, such as no indoor haunted houses due to having to follow social distancing guidelines, but that doesn't mean the fun has to stop.

Every weekend from September 18 through November 1, you can visit this terrifying world of spooks where the most chilling creatures come to life. All the non-scary events and family fun happen during the day, but beware once 6 p.m. rolls around. 

There are five scare zones you could walk into at any moment, so keep a lookout as you walk through the park if you're not a fan of jump scares. These include Big Top Terror, Cannibal Cookout, Cursed Cove, Seeds of Samhain's haunted pumpkin patch, and the Zombie Zoo.

As you make your way through the park, you'll eventually pass the Zombie Zoo. Here you'll have to brave your way through a trail of caged zombies snarling for you to take a photo with them, but don't get too close or you might be their next victim.

In the Cursed Cove, you can expect to walk into a swarm of pirates on the hunt for souls, and when you wander into Big Top Terror, get ready to encounter some terrifying and manic clowns. 

Lastly, lookout while going through the Cannibal Cookout. There'll be vicious "cannibals" waiting for you in the shadows around every corner.

If you're not a fan of the scares, during the day, you can see cute scarecrows everywhere, a field of glowing Jack-O-Lanterns with arts and crafts opportunities, and fun clowns that'll make you any balloon animal you desire.

Daytime almost feels like being at your local fall fair or carnival, which might be nice considering some have been canceled in the Peach State this year.

There are also some exclusive spooky new eats you can chow down on including Takis Zombie Nachos, Snickers Funnel Scream Cake, Scare-Acha Wings, and the Ghostly Grape Sprite.

You're in for a scary good time when you attend this nightly event through the spooky season at Six Flags.

Six Flags HALLOWFEST 

Price: $34.99 for single-day tickets; various ticket packages and price points available.

When: Every weekend now through November 1

Address: 275 Riverside Pkwy., Austell, GA 

Why You Need To Go: This event will give you the major spooks once the sun goes while you're having a scary good time on all the thrilling rollercoasters and wandering through themed zones. There are even new Halloween eats and drinks you can indulge in while visiting and less scary daytime activities. 

Europe isn't the only place to see impressive old buildings. These remarkable ruins near Ottawa will make you feel like you travelled back in time.

One of the best spots to go is Gatineau Park, as here you can hike to both Carbide Willson Ruins and Mackenzie King Estate. But for secret gems where you can escape the crowds, you'll want to visit St. Raphael's Ruins just outside of the city.
