When I arrived at around 5:15pm the line to get in was the longest line I've ever soon to get in. I am sure Cedar Fair is probably very pleased with the turnout they had here Saturday.

Great report of WinterFest! I'm shocked they don't have the Eiffel Tower open. The lights look great.

I was thinking the same thing at kings island a few weeks ago. I imagine that you could get a great view of all the lights from the top.

It might have something to do with the lights. Maybe they're concerned that people might fool with them.

Nice report! It looks like KD WinterFest has created a great event like Kings Island has. The lights look great and there are some nice offerings for family as well. It's rough when it's so cold but I'm glad they have a couple coasters open as well. Didn't sound like Flight of Fear was open, maybe next year?

Flight of Fear has the issue of being very far in the back of Safari Village which that entire section is not open for Winterfest.

Flight of Fear was closed last year for us but this year they opened it and added lighting in that area as well as opening and lighting the path that goes from Diamondback past Vortex toward FoF. Yes, yours is even more set back than ours but you never know. If WinterFest is a huge success I could see them scaling up and maybe someday adding some lighted trail or themed area or something with the endpoint being Flight of Fear.

Winterfest stopped at the entrance to Safari Village, but if the event's a big enough hit, who knows? (Busch Gardens' Christmas Town gradually absorbed the whole park over its ten-year run.)

Wow, that looks really fun! Some great character costumes and makeup. Nice touches all over the place. Cracked up at Falala llama.
