Sorry, CedarFairJon, but this isn't an answer, just another question...

What attractions are temporarily added (and where), renamed, or modified at SFGAm for FrightFest? I know that Iron Wolf becomes Iron Werewolf and Roaring Rapids becomes Blood River (or something like that), but I don't know what else.

They dye all the water rides red, and demon's water fall is red. Also they put up a huge spider on the side of the eagle. Besides iron wolf becoming iron werewolf.

Six Flags Scenic Railway becomes the B.O.O. Line, a scare-themed train ride (some might differ on the scare part)

Chubasco becomes Terror Twister, they enclose it and put strobe lights and laser lights all over the place. Its one of my favorite attractions there during Fright Fest. Last Sunday when I was there they already had the building enclosed and I saw some lights already up.

Ive always had good luck going on Friday nights and find it is more enjoyable as the park is open later in the day and if you get there when the park opens the crowd usually arrives a little bit later so you can get on alot of rides early before the crowds build.

If you go on a Friday night, be sure to dress warm. It can get mighty cold 200 feet in the air!

Damn, I can't wait to get to Fright Fest this year! I saw the character list for the actors from JPM productions. I think they are going to partially bring back Brutal Planet this year in the Mausoleum of Terror. That means "The Controller" will be back this year. Cool.

First off, the train is changed to some 'Pigman' deal. Of course, I'm not sure if this is BACK this year (honestly, it shouldn't be...)

It's a slightly scary (mostly confusing) train ride, which, unfortunately, does not make two stops. Only one. For those of us who like the train for transportation and relaxation, it ain't here.

And, if you want to be surprised in one of the haunted houses (the one over behind Camp Cartoon Network), don't ride the train, as it gives away the 'ending' scare...

They also completely enclose Rue Le Doge (bumper cars), though I've never been on it during FF so I don't know what they do to the inside.

The best thing about FF at Great America are the actors. Sure, I hear they're not as intense as the ones at places like MM, but they're a lot of fun. You just need to be in the right mood (and preferably with a group). Many are not scary, and some are just plain silly, but they all do their jobs well. It's fun to just sit back and watch one of them for a while. They will NOT break character, EVER!

That being said, Chusbasco with the alterations is not to be missed, for any reason. With the special effects, it's way better than, say, The Mad Tea Party, at Disney. Crowds are very, very large, though, so be prepared. If you start out at the Eagle and Demon from the very first, and work your way towards Orleans place, you should be able to avoid truly major crowds for everything but Whizzer, Raging Bull, and Viper (which, in my experience, are ALWAYS crowded anyway).

Oh, almost forgot. Two years ago, they had a truly awesome hypnosis show in the Theater Royale, in Orleans Place. If that's there this year, try to find time for it. The latest show is by far the best.

This year the magician Drew Thomas is doing a new Halloween show in the theatre.......... I know last year they had a hard time with finding adults to participate in the hypnosis show .....They cancelled alot of shows last year because of lack of participation (you are right it was a good show and very funny)
