I'm so excited for Fright Fest this year!! I wish I wasn't such a baby when it comes to actual haunted houses/mazes, because I really want to see how they are. I'll just have to rely on the reviews and info from others, lol. I'm definitely interested in the shows and new scare zones. I went to FF last year and while I thought that the theming was better than it had been in the past (especially the Rockville area), the scare zones seemed pretty sparse in the way of scare actors. I remember two or three guys in Crackaxle, a few zombies in Rockville and a couple of trolls under the bridge from Los Festivales to Spassburg. It would be nice to see the zones a bit more populated since they seem to be really trying to step things up a notch.

It's good timing, if you ask me. Since Nightmare on Grayson (long running San Antonio haunt) closed last year, there is definitely less competition. I've never been to Sea World for their haunt, but they are supposedly changing things up quite a bit this year too. I'm curious to see how SFFT and SW compare with one another.

EDIT: I happened across this on Youtube. Preview for Creature Feature 2013, for those interested in shows:

I'm hoping I can check out both events this year.

On the SF website where it advertises for the season pass and buying it right now would get you in free for fright fest, does that mean the cost of the haunted houses is included in the price of the pass, or does it just mean its to let you in the park now through the end of the 2014 season?

Probably just the rest of the season.

I'm going to the park tomorrow to ride the I.R. I've got a gold pass. Is there a special early entry line for gold pass and if so how early? Also what rides are available for early entry?

The entry line for Gold pass is the furthest right entry gates next to guest relations. There are signs pointing you to it.

15 minutes early

No. All rides open with the park. It gives you time to walk to the ride and get in line till it opens. You get to ride a few times till everyone else catches up.

Oct 4 was Fright Fest VIP preview night and TPR was there to check it all out. Billed as the Biggest Fright Fest Ever the park put a lot of effort into this years event that gives them an excellent base to work off of for years to come.

This year the park introduced new houses, new scare zones, and the Twick o' Tweat Twail for the kids.

What I liked most was the park was not conga lining people into the houses with Monster Mansion and RockKill High only allowing a max of 8 people in group while utilizing a 'tour guide' to help keep the pace and help you through. FearHouse 3D and Total Darkness were spaced appropriately apart but had no guide. The scare zones were quite nice with my favorite being Zombie Apocalypse, which by adding to the parks every day theming in the 'Rockkill' area made for a creepy straight out of the movies feel.

My favorite of the 4 houses was RockKill High School. Themed to what I'd call an abandoned high school, you are guided through the schools gymnasium where you are greeted by random zombies and led through the fluffy, fluffy bunny filled with medicine and goo room, chem lab, bathrooms that were serving as a lunch room, and of course the creepy librarian. Sorry, not going to give anything away here ;)

Behind RockKill, I'd rank Midnight Mansion #2, FearHouse 3D where you get cool 3D glasses and walk through where even the monsters look 3D as #3, and in last place Total Darkness. I'm sure some people will love Total Darkness because as the name suggests you are in total darkness feeling your way to the end while getting spooked along the way. I don't scare too easily so that plays a huge factor in why I place it last.

Besides the houses, scarezones, and food, the park had Iron Rattler open for everyone to ride and all I can say is wow, it was running great!

Special thanks to Jefferey Siebert for the invite, we had a 'horrible' time! For hours, tickets, and more information visit the Six Flags Website

What's better than eating all those Snickers bars? More food of course! The park had sweets, treats, and drinks set up throughout the park to help keep the energy level up!

The decorations fit with the theme of each section of the park, great attention to detail.

Speaking of....It only took about 10 minutes to get the 100 or so people into the house, very efficient.

FearHouse 3D uses Pando's queue line, and lets be honest, will you really miss not riding Pando? No, no you won't.

Note: I only assume the ride will not be running being as the air gates were chained and padlocked.
