First when I got to the park I jumped out of the car and saw lots of people looking at the Shockwave track laying in the rv and big truck parking spot right next to shockwave when you stand near the track you get a feel of how big it acutually is. There is a huge 200ft crane next to it.

Anyway a took some pics then ran into the park. I got there about 9:45ish first I ran to Raging Bull rode it once in the 3rd from the back to get good air time to start my day.Raging Bull had hardly anywait all day the most I waited was about 20 mins.

Then I went on Viper in the back was a 2min wait seriously.

Then went to Iron Wolf rode it took pics of new track from lift hill.

Rode V2 in 3rd row, then went to Batman no wait 2nd to last row.

Went to sky trek to get pics of Shockwave and New Track.Went to eat 11:45 returned to park at 12:15.

Went to Batman rode in front row 10min wait.Rode V2 front 10min wait. The front row on V2 and Batman are really awesome.

Then went to Raging Bull 20min wait for front row thats pretty stupid lots of wind but not to much air time just lots of hanging over the drops.It was still fun.

Did Viper again in 3rd row.Then we walked around for a while went on the train ride to try to look for a way to see the new track we did sorta but it is mostly it was shelterd by the fence on the left side. Then we went on condor to look at Shockwave and whats going on and try to look at the new track but there were some stupid trees in the way.Then we dodged around some creepy people in orleans place.

Then we went onto Whizzer no wait at all 5mins.Now it was about 3:30 And we headed for Raging Bull again. This time we rode in the back great air time. That was about a 5-10 min wait.

Then we went on Terror Twister(tea Cups) this is a very good idea I think they should always keep it like this.It makes you sooooooooooooooo dizzy Iam still dizzy from it and its 8:48pm. Its very fun even for tea cups.But any way I had to go at 4:30.

I had a very good when it comes to how many rides I rode. But I felt like Fright Fest was missing something I didnt like how only like a third of the park was themed. There was the Scary zone from Orleans Place to Yankee Habor. But the not so scary zone was from Home town square to Yukon Territory. The Southwest territory was kinda Inbetween scary and not scary. Carousel plaza is all ways very themed but I was still very dissiponited compared to last year.

I still had lots of fun though

When I get my pics devoloped I will post them on my site.

Its nice to hear about Fright Fest at other parks. I was just at Great Adventure yesterday, and the frightfest looked good, although I had to leave before I could "truly" experience it.

Nice trip report though! A section of GADV's parking lot is being cleared for the flyer, although its a really odd part and messes up the lot...

Was there the same day for my first visit to Fright Fest (only my second visit to the park!). Did you go on Blood River? I thought that was pretty cool. We also tried "Fearanoia" but didn't win :( I don't think we waited more than 15 minutes for any ride in the park! Although I have only been to SFGAm twice, both times I have been extremely impressed with the park and how it is run. Keep up the good work SFGAm!

I didnt go on Blood river but it looked pretty cool compared to Roaring Rapids.I didnt want to get my clothes stained but I dont think the would but the dye in if your clothes would get stained.This year they put alot more dye in the water than they did last year. If you go on V2 the water right below you on the vertical part where it breaks you. It looks like you are going to fall into blood
