• Six Flags seeks 400 scary actors for Fright Fest


    ATLANTA - Calling all scare-actor hopefuls, or lovers of all things Halloween.

    Six Flags Over Georgia is preparing to hire hundreds of "scare actors" for the largest Fright Fest event in the park’s history.

    The park is looking to hire approximately 400 Fright Team members, more than double the number they hired in 2013, Six Flags Over Georgia Communications Manager Gene Petriello said.

    Six Flags plans to introduce a new Apocalypse maze, where campers are seeking refuse from the zombie apocalypse, but find themselves trapped by the undead, he said.

    In addition, two new scare zones, Cemetery of the Undead and Hidden Horrors will debut in 2014. Each night at 6 p.m., throngs of monsters, zombies and other scare actors will be released into the terror and fog-filled night of fright at the “The Awakening” show on the Dare Devil Dive stage.

    In all, Fright Fest at Six Flags Over Georgia will feature seven mazes, five scare zones, five shows, hundreds of monsters and more park décor than ever before, Petriello said.

    The park will host four upcoming Fright Fest Casting Calls in a search for for scare actors, dancers and more.

    • July 26 and 27: Scare actors registration at 11 a.m.; singers and dancers registration at 2 p.m.

    • Aug. 2 and 3: Scare actors, technicians, costume designers, makeup artists, specialty acts and insult comics registration at 10 a.m.
      • Six Flags Over Georgia’s Employment Center, located at 275 Riverside Parkway SW, Austell, Ga.

    Fright Fest presented by Snickers at Six Flags Over Georgia opens for the 2014 season on September 27 and runs through November 2 on select nights.
