Yes, you don't have to pay separately for mazes at KD, or any CF Park for that matter.

^^ Great review!

I personally won't go into any haunted attraction at any Six Flags/Cedar Fair park. Now that I have been to haunt events at Six Flags America, Kings Dominion, Dorney park, Six Flags Great Adventure, and Six Flags Fiesta Texas I have lost all faith in any of them actually being good. They simply just send too many people through at once. Not sure how you can scare a group of 10-15 people at once. That is just too many. Yes, I know they have a crap load of people to get through these things. However, it does not state anywhere you are guaranteed to go through every haunted attraction on one visit. I would rather pick one or two ones that have themes I like and be totally scared in them then go through all of them and get a mediocre experience. The theming is usually pretty good in them. Also, the actors rarely have actually jumped out and scared me. They are usually just walking around and get in my face. Not sure how that is supposed to be scary.
I may not know everything about coasters... what I do know is they are my life...

How are crowds generally for the last two weekends? Is it worth coming on a Friday evening?

it's so weird that some Six Flags Parks charge for the haunts, and some dont.

at Six Flags Fiesta Texas, the houses are all free.

oh sure, you can purchase a "skip the lines" / "Express Pass". . .but one can wait in the standby lines and the haunts are all free.

Not open on Friday until next weekend. Crowds are pretty hefty, especially for SFA. See earlier pics. A line at Pirate's Flight? What's the world coming too?

^Thx. Do the Saturdays vs Sundays during FF differ much crowd-wise? Also of the next three weekends of FF is there any recommendation for which to choose crowdwise, or is it unpredictable?

Sunday will be lighter. I went last night; a pretty good crowd.

A donkey is a domesticated member of the Equidae or horse family.

I went last night, crowds were much lighter because of colder weather and well . . . it was a Sunday.
