Where in PKI is Fear Fest?

Monday, October 7, 2002 5:43 PM

When I went to Fear Fest at Paramount's Kings Island in 2000, I was only able to find four haunted houses. Could someone please tell me where each of the haunted houses will be this year? Here's a list of the haunted attractions this year: ( Excluding Elvira's Superstition )

Psycho Path - Curse of the Crypt - House of Darkness - Maze of Madness - Circus of Horrors 3D

I went to fearfest last sat night. The lines for the haunted houses were at least a hour while all the rides had less than a 5 min wait. My advice would be to go to the haunted houses first then jump on the beast for some awesome rides.

Psycho Path, Curse of the Crypt, and Maze of Madness- are all by flight of fear

House of Darkness is close to the bumper cars in the coney mall area.

Circus of Horrors 3D- is in the FestHaus

I only did Psycho Path, and Maze of Madness and they were pretty good. If you have a season pass, then you dont have to leave the park at 7, just go by the second day office and pick up a wrist band. If you need any more information just ask.Have fun and dont forget the Beast!

They're giving out park maps specifically for Fear Fest attractions only. They're easy to locate.

Thanks for the info. I'll be able to catch all the rides and haunted houses now that I know where they are.

Circus of horrors 3D is in the Festhaus

Psycho Path is located by Flight of Fear (enter by the helicopter)

Maze of madness is located on the way to Flight of Fear as you walk under the Racers on your right.

Curse of the Crypt is located on the way to Flight of Fear before you go under Racer on your left.

House of Darkness is located next to Scrambler.

I am a season passholder there at my beloved PKI but it still makes me mad that season pass holders dont get into fearfest for free. Anyways, is fearfest really that good? My uncle and I are still a little leary of paying the extra $20? Thanks.Cameron Parker

It depends on how much you like haunted houses.

I personally look on Fearfest as another pay-per-play attraction. They offset the cost of the event by charging for it. It is no different than Winterfest of years ago that was an additional charge.

Think of it this way... if you went to a normal haunted house anywhere throughout the city you would pay upwards of $10 to go through it. At PKI you get to go through several, plus have the benefit of very empty ride lines for just a bit more dough.

If you enjoy being scared, or are into "haunted" things then you will really enjoy it. Most people I have talked to that like spook houses flipped over Fearfest.

I am not really that much of a fan, rather I am a complete cynic of any haunted house. They have never really scared or thrilled me. I mean, when I am walking down a dark corridor I am already expecting something.... so when a masked person yelling "Blah!" jumps out in front of me, they get little response.

I will say that the sick side of me does enjoy going through them with young kids ;-)

Not only do they make season pass holders pay to get in, but they also make the associates pay!! (I am pretty suprised that they don't let gold pass holders get in for free though.)

Shaggy, I totally agree that FF should be seperate and a pay for play type thing and for 6+ haunted things plus night rides on several great coasters, The 19.95 SP Blockbuster price is one HELUVA DEAL.

What I can't understand it them charging 25 bucks for a three second sling shot or skycoaster. I guess as long as there are people willing to pay that price, Thats the way it will be.

I`ve already bought my FearFest ticket at Blockbuster, for the season pass discount. I do, however, have a question. Is parking free if you have a parking pass printed on your season pass? I`m pretty sure last year it was. On the park`s website, it says that parking is $9 and $11 for prefered but doesn`t mention season passes.

Can you get the season pass discount at the door. Online at pki.com it seems like they are impliying to get the discount you have to order online or goto block buster. But the thing is online season pass people get 7 dollars off but there is a 3.99 service charge whcih makes it a 3 dollar dicount which really sucks. I guess ill just goto block buster cause that is by far the best deal unless you can get the season pass discount at the door.

From what i understand, the season pass discount is only available in advance at Blockbuster for $19.99 or online for a reduced price, with a service charge. I do believe that there is no season pass discount at the gate this year. Also, does anyone know if parking is free if you have a PKI pass with a parking pass number on it?
