Six Flags Over Texas is trading its usual Fright Fest of indoor haunted houses and stage shows for Hallowfest, a two-part outdoor Halloween celebration. During daylight hours, there will be family-friendly fall favorites such as spooky photo ops and a Trick-or-Treat Trail. At dark, creepy fog and sinister music are switched on to create a scarier atmosphere. Some of the theme park’s roller coasters, including Superman: Tower of Power, Titan and Shock Wave, will run in darkness. The park will operate at a limited capacity as part of its coronavirus safety guidelines, so tickets and parking must be purchased in advance. Those 3 and older will be required to wear protective masks. Social distancing will be enforced, and there will be hand-washing and hand sanitizer stations throughout the grounds.
Through Nov. 1 on Fridays from 6 to 11 p.m., Saturdays from 2 to 10 p.m., Sundays from 2 to 9 p.m., plus Oct. 12 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Six Flags Over Texas, 2201 Road to Six Flags, Arlington. $29.99 to $39.99, free for children 2 and younger. Fast passes range from $50 to $120. Parking is $27.78 to $37.04. sixflags.com/overtexas.
