To celebrate everybody’s favorite spooky holiday, Six Flags Great America—located in Gurnee, Illinois between Chicago and Milwaukee—is kicking off its 21st annual Fright Fest.
 
Starting October 1 and running weekends throughout October, the theme park will be transformed into a 100-acre world of fog, ghosts, and ghouls.
 
"We are pushing the envelope with this year's Fright Fest," said Hank Salemi, Six Flags Great America's park president.  "…Fright Fest is going to be bigger and scarier than ever before."

As Gurnee’s premier Halloween event, some of the events you can expect from this year's Fright Fest include a haunted house remodeled after an abandoned hospital, several live shows, roaming monsters, and a 200-pound spider thatperches at the side of the America Eagle coaster.

Fright Fest is kid-friendly until 3 p.m., but for the rest of the night, it's your worst nightmare.
