But I am sure since you pay, they are wayy better scarier. Cedar Fair ones I think are free so they aren't as good.

But Rue Le morgue (rue le dodge) is amazing during Fright Fest! Last year, they loaded the whole thing with fog. You were driving it pitch fog and its amazing. Also, Condor is amazing with had maybe a 25 minute wait last year...

I was just at KD on sunday & their haunt event blows the crap out of SF's any day of the week so I don't know which CF park you're trying to compare it to but you're way off in that assesment that just because it's free means it's no good.

I've bolded the reasons why a response wasn't even necessary.

I do not do scare things so I can not comment on how good or bad it was. But it was free to season passholders and $5 to everyone else.

It was there when I went in October 2007, too.

I know I was there in 07 and don't remember small is it?

Also am I the only one that wishes they would keep the demon song/radio thing on all year round

I don't know. I remember it being on the park map, but I didn't go since I hate haunted houses/scare zones of any kind. I just happened to be in the park October 2007 and remember a scare zone themed to the Demon being near the Rock Climbing zone on the map. Didn't see the entrance, though.

^Thank you sooo much! That is really nicely copied from another site. I just really wanted to know the other attractions being changed.

I also emailed the park and they said Buccaneer Battle will remain open during Fright Fest. But I found that really hard to believe. :omg:

Also, Hellevator, or Giant Drop, should be added to that list...unless they didn't feel like it...

Just got the season passholder renewal e-mail. In it said Svengoolie (local TV personality) will be appearing for a meet and greet October 10 from 1-3.

Someday, I hope to find my own Indiana Jones.

^Too bad I'll be in Minnesota stalking Matt.

My friend is going to be playing "Lydia" in the Tinseltown area. She didn't say if she would be in the haunted house or just roaming the place. I don't recall what they put in the Tinseltown area last year. I thought I saw a guy that was made up like he was burnt to a crisp. Does anyone else remember that, or was I seeing things?

He is 6' 6" ..Or maybe taller are there any rides that he would not be able to ride? If so, which ones?

All I can think of would be V2, King Chaos and Revolution. The height limit is 76 inches if I am not mistaken.
