Why would you ever want to associate yourself with that rumor.

Okay cool so wh....

The current plan is to go Thursday, October 19th. Would you recommend Fright+Fast Lane for a Thursday night? We will be at Knott’s during the daytime on Wednesday and Thursday, so we can knock out the rides then. We are already purchasing the Boo-fet, so we would just upgrade to the all-inclusive ticket if needed. Thanks!


I've been going to Scary Farm for seven consecutive years and have never needed the Fright/Fast Lane. If you are at the rope when it drops, you should be able to do every single maze and maybe do some twice. You might even have time for a show or two if you're interested! The fact that you're going on a Thursday helps a lot, but it is mid-October so it might still be a bit crowded. Not to the point where you'll need the Fast Lane to do every maze, though.
Coaster count:
101 (87 steel, 14 wood)

Top 5:
I305 | El Toro | Maverick | Twisted Colossus | Alpengeist

I would say buy it if it won't break your budget. Some of the newer mazes have limited capacity, so it's worth it if for nothing else to go through Paranormal Inc & Infected more than once. You could theoretically do it all without the Fright Lane, but you would be cutting it close and not likely to have time to repeat anything you enjoyed.

One of them correctly predicted a vertical lift dive coaster. They never made a guess on the maker however, just that it would not be a B&M. So I thought it was worth throwing out there as crazy as it might be.

Plus, this year the frightlane works for both mazes and rides. No need to buy two types of "front of the line" passes.

Yeah, that’s what I was talking about. I think we will just go for the all-inclusive package to stay safe. Thanks guys!

Correct me if I'm wrong but it looks like they changed the scheduled maintenance dates for Ghostrider to later in the year as to not have yet another attraction closed during these unplanned outages. I could have sworn it was supposed to go down this month but now that is no longer the case.

^ I thought that might be part of the reason WCB wasn't happening this year - Ghostrider's
(at the time) maintenance schedule, which would have been now. So now WCB's on, I believe, for 2018.
