Fright Fest @ SFWoA

Sunday, September 15, 2002 8:40 AM
I just have a question or two. Me and my fiance' are planning a one day trip to SFWoA for fright fest. We are season pass holders. I know this doesnt get us in any of the haunted houses but we have free tickets for Brutal Planet. My question is this. Do you know how much additional costs are for each haunted house? Also if there is a special price for all of the houses together we would like to know this also. Thank You very much.

Yes I can help you.

It's $10 for unlimited trips through all the haunted houses. I have also heard there is by one ticket (for haunted houses) at Myer's and get 1 free. I'm waiting for Jen (addmissions manager) to confirm this. But is printed in there monthly flyer. Originally just Brutal Planet was going to pay $6 but they have added some pretty cool things this year with the extra $4 for ALL the haunted houses. As you know, this is going to be BY FAR the biggest FrightFest SFWoA has EVER done. It's going to be cool :) C-ya around at the Ohio Parks!!

What rides are open?
Monday, September 16, 2002 7:18 AM
Rides that will be closes are (guaranteed):
Hurricane Harbor (not to mention it could be snowing this time of year)
El Derado
Grizzly Run
Shipreck Falls

Everything else including RWB (which was rumored to shut down Sept. 2nd) was open for Octoberfest. Though, they usually shut down RWB for Fright Fest, it looks like they might keep it open this year.

In all if you go on a Sat or Sun. You'll definetly get your money's worth, the Wild Life side will be open until 6pm. those two days and closed on Fridays since the park opens at 6pm. And they even have a few "haunted shows" this year over there. :)

Yes, it is still uncertain on when RWB will close for the Season. I talked to some employees on Friday and they *thought* it would be the last Weekend but who knows. I know it was Open for Fright Fest last Season, at least part of the time. It was AWESOME!! NO lights on in the Station except for little orange 1's and tons of fog everywhere, it was GREAT.

Fright Fest is my favorote part of the Season, it is definitely worth a visit.

Hey RollerCoasterGod, don't forget to add the Dodgems to that closed ride list. The "Fearanoia" Haunted House has taken over the Dodgem pavilion while the cars can be seen sitting underneath one of the old picnic pavilions near Villain.

Did you get any confirmation on if there are buy one get one free offers for the haunted houses wristband anywhere? Friends and I are planning on going this Saturday and have season passes so we would just need to pay the additional charge.

Also, what are they charging for parking this year?

Thanks for the info.

Parking went up to $8.

RWB was closed last Sunday when I was there. :(

Uh, John, I think you meant to put a smiley and not a frown after that last comment.

Just got back from SFWOA and wanted to post a note about Fright Fest.

If you check out the Six Flags official web page for SFWOA Fright Fest it mentions the fact that the haunted houses are an additional $10 and that buy one get one free coupons are available at CVS Pharmacies. We stopped at the CVS in Solon on Rt. 43 and pick a couple coupons up on our way to the park. The coupons themselves say they are good for buy one general admission, get one free, NOT the haunted house wrist bands. We went to the booth to get our Fright Fest wristbands and handed them the coupon. The cashier said that it was for park admission, not Fright Fest wristbands. Luckily I had printed the Fright Fest page off the web so I showed the section about the CVS coupons to the cashier and she called a manager. The manager honored the coupons but said the web site was wrong. So be sure to print off the web page and take it with you if you plan on using the coupons for the haunted houses.

Another tip: After you purchase a Fright Fest wristband you get a page of coupons. One of the coupons is for 1/2 off a Fright Fest wristband. So but one wrist band then use that coupon to buy additional ones.



This is a personal opinion.

The entire group I went with was very disappointed with Fright Fest. I'll save the details for a trip report if I have a chance to write one.
