When you live in Chicagoland you never know what the weather will be like in October. Sometimes it is 80⁰ and sunny. However, we can also experience crippling ice storms. Imagine my surprise when the day of our planned trip to Fright Fest at Six Flags – Great America dawned and it was a glorious sunny day with temps in the mid-60s.
On most days, “Fright Fest features frightful haunted houses, eerie scare zones, and spine-chilling top-notch live entertainment.” But on this day (Columbus Day) the park was only open from 10-7 and everything was kid and family-friendly.
We enjoyed a few rides, had some snacks, and soaked in the beautiful weather.
