SFGAm Fright Fest Crowds

Saturday, September 15, 2001 9:52 AM
I was just wondering if any of the SFGAm veterans out there could give me an idea of what the crowd situation usually is during Fright Fest.  I was planning to go this weekend, but due to all that has happened this week, I didn't really think I could enjoy myself much.  Also, I am hoping that Deja Vu will be open for Fright Fest since it sounds like it is finally testing.  If someone could just let me know if there is any difference in crowds on Saturday vs. Sunday and if it matters how late in October you go.  Also, are all the coasters generally open?

If it's a sunny day and the temps are around 70, it is very crowded.  Sundays are usually a little better.  Friday nights attract a younger, non-family type crowd and should be avoided IMO.  Later in the month may be better, but the weather is more iffy.  As always, get there for the chain drop, ride the coasters first and enjoy the rest of the park when it gets more crowded.

Sorry to say, but I have been to Fright Fest in 50 degree weather, and it is still crowded. Fright Fest is allways crowded, so no matter what, your in for long waits.

The whole time it is "PACKED"!!! You really wont be able to find a light crowd during Fright Fest.
"The Peoples Elbow" or "The Spinaroonie?. Cant decide which is the most electrifying move in sports entertainment!!! LOL

Well, it seems the consensus is that Fright Fest is always packed, which is pretty much what I expected.  Instead, I think I may just take that first trip to Holiday World that I've been trying to work in for so long.  I'll probably just wait till next season for the SFGAm trip when I can go on a lighter day and Deja Vu will definitely be running (I presume).

Fright fest is not as busy on Fridays. Never go there on a Sat. Sunday is busy but not in overflow parking......Since we are on the topic does anyone know if your season pass is good for unlimited times at fright fest?

You can use your season pass 100% of the time during fright fest!!!

There is one day that is usually never crowded. If you go on Columbus day, it will be like a wednesday in July. My friend has gone on Columbus day 2 years straight, and it was never crowded. Hope that helps!
V2 can't be compared to any of the rides in SFGAm!The Vertical Drop was amazing!

Yeah it is usually really packed and I was wondering, are you able to twicket during Fright Fest?  I have never tried this but this year when I go I want to do this.
