I'm not sure if it is chain wide, but I did get the chance to try that out during the summer (July I believe). It is a very disorienting experience, and you don't realize how far back the chairs lean until it goes backward! Definitely much different than riding it forwards.
Anybody going to Fright Fest should know that the attractions schedule is a little screwed up this year - On Fridays the park opens at 6:00 with Freaks Unleashed, but all of the haunted attractions (paid and free, except for Zombie Paintball which starts at 6:00 everyday) don't open until 7:45. On Saturday Freaks Unleashed is at 6:00, with none of the haunted attractions starting until 6:45 and on Sunday it's the same as Saturday (but the parks closes at 8:00 on Sunday, so the Fright Fest attractions are open for a whole 1:15 hours).
Last year (and basically every year in the past) everything would open at 6:00 every night, but since the park is open for two hours longer this year (Midnight instead of 11:00) on Friday and Saturday, there likely had to be cuts made somewhere to keep within the corporate budgets and the cuts were to the Fright Fest attractions times. I may understand not opening the two outdoor mazes and the train until it's dark, but to not open anything until it's basically dark is really only something that Six Flags would do just to save some operating money.
I'm glad they extended the hours this year though. Granted, I'd prefer 1:00 AM but midnight is still better than 11:00 PM. Now Sunday is still too short. It should at least be 10 PM. What time does the park open on Saturdays for Fright Fest?
