I have to decide next weekend between going back to kennywood for the phantom fright fest (i went last year) or going to SFGAd for Fright Fest. I guess my main question is "how good is fright fest at Great Adventure?" I know Kennywood had a great event going, but I was hoping to maybe find an event that was also good that provided a better selection of rides. Or, if anyone knows of a good halloween event within 5 hours of state college PA, please let me know!

Go to Phoenix Phall Phunfest at Knoebel's Grove on Sat night!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It's much closer to State College, has my favorite coaster on the planet (out of 259 and counting) + flyers + Twister, is cheaper ($15 for all you can ride and dinner) and will have one of the most fun loving crowds. The haunted house, car rides, train rides, etc. are quite good and atmosphere of the park that night is electric.
GAdv. has a pretty weak Fright Fest, IMO. The haunted attractions are medicore at best and the lines for them can get ridiculous (2 hrs. for the hayride on Fri. or Sat. nights). The coasters are running and some of them run quite well, but that's not worth the time, effort, or money, when you could get that on any summer night with much less waiting.
Never been to PFN, but I hear it's dynamite as well.

Yeah, I would expect great adventure to have ridiculously long waits. How about kings dominion and busch gardens? Both of their events seem interesting, but I am not sure whether the drive would be worth it for either one of them. Oh and by the way GO PENN STATE.............6-0, and the Buckeyes are finally brought down.
