It’s practically the middle of October already, which means Halloween is just around the corner, and it’s time to start figuring out different fun ways to celebrate the 2018 holiday! To help you come up with things to do, we’ve compiled a list of some of our favorite events to attend here in the Arlington TX area.
Six Flags Fright Fest
The biggest and most obviously, and honestly probably the best option here in the area is without a doubt Fright Fest at Six Flags Over Texas. Running through the end of the month, the local theme park operates like normal during the day before transforming to offer 20 unique and spooky attractions at night. This year there are four new attractions, titled Hell Block 6, Anarchy Unleashed, Squeal and The Witching Hour. Don’t miss these great activities!
Ripley’s Believe It or Not!
While it doesn’t look like they have anything special planned for Halloween this year, Ripley’s Believe It or Not! has plenty of fun, spooky amenities to check out all year round. Plus, they’ve had Halloween activities in the past at the Grand Prairie location, so it’s possible something will come up again!
Over at the Mansfield Activities Center in Mansfield, Texas, you can hit up their annual Boo Bash! It’s a fantastic option for those of you who don’t want to do the traditional door-to-door trick or treating, offering a fun-filled evening of Halloween candy & snacks, holiday-themed crafts and plenty of games and other activities. While the activities were designed for children ages 2-6 years old, anyone is welcome!
Arlington Skatium Halloween Party
If you like roller skating or blading, you will not want to miss the 2-hour Halloween Party at Arlington Skatium. Admission is only $1.99 to get in and skate, with basic skate rentals costing only $1 and inline skates running $3.
We hope you enjoy one or all of these great Halloween events and have a wonderful holiday!
