Fright Fest at Six Flags
This fall, Six Flags New England has
thrills by day and fright by night. While
the sun still shines, take your turn on
the Fright Rides, including Terror Twist,
Voodoo Vortex, Rage in the Cage, and
LightmosFEAR on the Pandemonium
Zombie Coaster! Then watch the creepy
crew dance to classic Halloween tunes
during the Spooktacular Street Party.
Catch a scary show such as Mayhem
Mission, Mort’s Used Coffins or
Showdown in Tombstone Terrortory.
If you’re brave enough to stick around
once the sun goes down, you’re sure to
find ghouls and ghosts galore. Enter
the Main Street Graveyard if you dare,
navigating your way through coffins,
tombs and other horrors. The Demon
District includes a slew of frightening
activities such as the Creepshow Freakshow
and Slayer’s Lair, but be leery of creatures
lurking in the dark. Most Fright Fest
activities are included in your MTA
member-discounted ticket price of $37.
Tickets must be purchased online. Visit
mtabenefits.com for more information.
Hersheypark in the Dark
The fun doesn’t stop at Hersheypark just because summer has
ended! Visit Hersheypark in the Dark for Halloween-themed
excitement. Enjoy “roller-ghosters,”
spooktacular attractions and live
entertainment, all included in your
admission fee. Children 12 and younger
can get their fill of sweets in Hershey’s
Trick-or-Treat Adventure. The trail through
the park’s Treatville has eight stops at
which children receive snack-sized treats.
Haunted Happenings in Salem
There’s no better time to visit Salem than during October. Known for the Salem Witch Trials
in the late 1600s, Salem has become a hub for Halloween-themed entertainment. Head back
in time to 1692 at the Salem Witch Museum, where a rousing narration details the changing
conception of witches, the truth behind the stereotypes and the practice of witch-hunting.
Admission is free for MTA members.
The Land of Witches & Pirates is made up of three museums: The Witch Dungeon
Museum presents an award-winning reenactment of the trial of Sarah Good, using the
original 1692 transcript of the trial; the Witch History Museum presents the historically
accurate, largely untold stories of 1692 as you walk through a forest, visit Old Salem
Village and view life-sized scenes depicting these unknown stories; and the New England
Pirate Museum allows you to experience the adventures of New England’s legendary sea
villains, peruse artifacts from sunken ships and eye pirate treasures. Admission to all three
museums is free with your MTA member card.
Bewitched in Salem is a unique gift shop that offers witching oils, incense, talking boards,
cauldrons, fairy stones and more. Members receive either a 20 percent discount on their
purchases or a $30 psychic reading.
Do you ever wish you lived in another time? Now’s your chance to dress as if you did.
At Salem’s Vintage Photography, choose costumes from the Wild West, the Civil War or
the Roaring Twenties. Since you’re
in Salem, you might as well dress
the part and choose to be a witch,
a wizard or a pirate. Members receive
a 10 percent discount.
