The timing of the calendar this year couldn't be any better for Six Flags Great Adventure Fright Fest.

It works out perfectly that opening day for Fright Fest falls on Friday the 13th this month...Doesn't get much better than that!

Fright Fest runs through November 3rd, with more than 20 Halloween-themed attractions including some new ones this year.

Some of the highlights this season is "Aftermath", "Blood Shed", "Scary-Oke", and the return of the "30-Hour Coffin Challenge" on Oct. 13 and 14.

30-Hour Coffin Challenge

Six guests will be chosen from among thousands of applicants to survive 30 hours in a coffin during Fright Fest for prizes and bragging rights. The Munsters star Butch Patrick will join this year’s festivities as a guest emcee. Individuals and pairs are welcome to apply. Interested coffin dwellers can complete the application on www.sixflags.com/greatadventure beginning Sept. 9.
