I went there yesterday and there is no boo-line again. There are more monsters walking around in necropolis though and a few more decorations, but i would rather have the boo-line well maybe next year.

At SFGAm they usally have the train haunted with a skit and monsters during Fright Fest it is the most popular attraction during Fright Fest but this year they don't have it and it is a real disapointment.

I actually thought their were less decorations in the park. They had no signage by Souwthwest Terr./Hometown Scare/Iron Wolf, the carousel near American eagle wasnt decorated at all, their were no alien figures on the buildings near Carosuel Plaza,no Superstitution Similar ride and large parts of the park had no halloween theming at all. I thought Necropolis was done very well!! But the park didnt have the feel last night as it has in the past. The park also had fewer animals in the looney lodge section and saw no bugs bunny etc. waling around in halloween costumes but may have just missed them.
And i spoke to a ride-op on V2 and dont know if true but she said the park will be open the first week of Nov. but i forgot to go to guest relations to ask them. This friday 10/11 the park wasnt that busy and made for a great night in the park.

When I said that there were more decorations I was saying that there were more decorations than there was last week. I should have said that I went last week too.

I was wondering, did they have the Demons theme song playing in the queue line?

I saw them, there right next to Batman on the bridge. The bridge that go's from orleans place into Yankee harbor.They have alittle cave with lots of human bones in front there actually quite scary.

I saw trolls when I walked by once but then I walked by later and they weren't there. So guess they are only there at certain times.

I saw trolls near Batman by their cave by Roaring Rapids. Also they had the Demon song playing a little.

Nope. No haunted train ride this year guys. It even states that the train is running under "Normal conditions" and will not be a Fright Fest attraction.
As I agree with others, that is a disappointment. However they are still running the train round trip at County Fair station.
As far as the trolls, I saw 4 of them today over by the old Cajun Cliffhanger site with the cave and piles of bones scattered about. They even moved the infamous "Illinois Trollway" sign over by the bridge that connects Orleans Place and Yankee Harbor.
Seeing Shockwave down to 1 inversion is a sad site to be hold. :(
2 superheroes in Gurnee next season? Oh the humanity. :)

BOO Line will be back next year. The park can't afford to stip down FF that bad 2 years in a row.

from what ive heard the train isnt decorated this year because they were going to remove whizzer and since those plans changed last minute they didnt have time to get the decorations and hire all the necessary people and stuff like that. im guessing it will be back next year. and im hoping it will be better than pig man.

It was my first Fright Fest this weekend at SFGAm... pretty cool, but I was disappointed that I wasn't able to enjoy Boo Line...as I had heard good things about it. Hopefully it will be back next year. I thought it was odd that the sign in the County Fair station said that the round-trip would take 25 minutes!! Ha.
As far as the Demon song, I didn't hear it except in the Demon tunnel. The ride op said they were cycling through 4 different songs on Demon.
