Six Flags not to host Brutal Planet???

Wednesday, October 3, 2001 11:45 AM
I have been on a lot of the Six Flags Park's websites and it doesn't say anywhere about the Brutal Planet haunted houses. Does anyone know more? This will be a damper on Fright Fest at some parks. I know at my home park, SFNE, that was their main FrightFest attraction, besides a kiddie trail which was supposed to be scary. these haunted houses were not that bad and I would hate to see them disappear. Anyone know more about this?

They still talk about it on the SFMW website and even though it's not being built in the same spot as last year, I believe it is the one I saw under construction next to V².

Yep.. they still exist throughout the SF chain [It is even included in the "generic" Six Flags radio/TV commercials] but yet none of the SF sites really mention stuff about Fright Fest (the ones I have seen...)

Jeff, you are the best! Thank you for your hard work, and your awesome site!

SFNE is also my homepark. I know for a fact sfne is getting brutal planet because i heard it in a commericial. The trail is also going to be changed and will be better this year. It will even include minimazes. Ps i have never been in brutal planet how is it?

For more proof go to yahoo and search for psp productions(phantom sheep productions) i know it sounds dumb but trust me. the do the comedy shows for the kiddies email the guy they gots all kind of info.

Is the brutal planet maze different at every SF or is it the exact same thing everywhere?

SFGAdv got rid of theirs in favor of "RoboSaurus"...why, I have no clue.  I think that any park that feels they must charge an additional $5 to see a giant Robot eat a car is SCREAMING "We're arseholes!  We're arseholes!  We're just here to steal your money, along with the $50 admission, $10 parking, and 9 upcharge rides!  Come to the wonderful world of spending money, only at SFGAdv and Disney!"

You know what I mean?

Well, Brutal Planet is also an additional charge attraction.  At SFWoA, for an extra $5, you too can enter their hi-tech terror haunted house.  The attraction is located in the park's ballroom this year.  There is also a "Trail of Terror" located on the pathway behing Raging Wolf Bobs (connecting the Rides side with the Marine side) which is free. 

Not sure why SF charges extra for their haunted house when CP's three haunted houses and Fright Zone are included in the general admission price.  It's probably the same reason they charge $9 for parking and insanely high admission prices....

Well, I'm really not into the Brutal planet thing, but I would imagine the one at SFSTL is going to be happening this year. I think it starts in a game area (I believe they have Skeeball there the rest of the year), winds around outside, and then I think a big part of it is in the Water Street Cab Co. (Bumper Cars) building. I think when we went to SFSTL last week, it said that the Water Street Cab Co. was closed, so I would imagine they are fixing up Brutal planet.

Well, last year, SFGAdv's Brutal Planet was free.  Then again,  it wasn't NEARLY as good as it was in 1999.  In 1999, it was an additional $5 though.  I just want to have a GOOD Fright Fest again!  The only GOOD Fright Fest at SFGAdv was 1998 and earlier.  Since then, it has been terrible!  Give us a haunted house!  Give us a haunted hayride that is actually scary and actually has HAY!  Give us actors walking through the parks!  I saw 1 this year and 2 last year!  For Christ's sake, give us THEMEING other than a few fake skeletons!

...that sounds EXACTLY like SFDL's situation too... It was good the first year but it has gone WAY downhill since then.

 What about SF including their waterpark, having much cheaper season passes, and still having their ticket prices $1 below CP's? Yuh, I am sure the prices are so insane compared to CP's. Please.

Do you remember what happened the last time SFGAdv had a haunted house? There was a major fire and I believe 8 people were killed. I know the locals know of the story, even though it happened years ago. I skipped Brutal Planet each time I went because I wanted to ride the coasters instead. It is a good idea, however, to ride the hayride so you can possibly get a good look at land clearing. That is how I figured out that they were putting in a hypercoaster.
