Six Flags Over Georgia Fright Fest: All October
If you’re exploring the area while you’re checking out Smyrna real estate—and you should—take a quick drive to Six Flags Over Georgia for their annual Fright Fest. During October, the amusement park takes on a seasonally-appropriate sinister feel, with fun and frightening activities, including haunted houses. There are specific “scare zones” set up around the park, so you can get away from it all if it gets too intense for you or your kids. You can pick up tickets by clicking here.
