Six Flags New England hosts Fright Fest auditions

There were plenty of screams inside the Six Flags New England human resources building on Sunday as auditions were underway for this year's Fright Fest.

The amusement park is looking to fill 200 positions, with the main job description as being able to scare people.

It is a job people must enjoy, as the park said 75 percent of the spots are usually filled by people who worked Fright Fest the year before.

Sunday's applicants said they are excited about the possibilities.

This year's fest features several new additions, including a haunt zone called Un-Dead Alley and a completely dark maze where visitors will need a flashlight and a rope to get through.

Anyone wanting to be a zombie, ghost or ghoul has one last chance to audition on Saturday, Aug. 10.
