Oh yeah man, haven't forgotten about them. This year's series can suck it.

So I wonder, now that fright fest is officially over, how fast do you think the decorations will disappear?

^ They usually take a few weeks to take everything down. In mid-November, it's not uncommon to see a weird mixture of Fright Fest and Holiday in the Park decorations scattered around.

Most of the bigger scare zone props are taken down within the first two days. The rest takes a bit longer since the main focus is usually getting the big/obvious stuff out first. It's a bit harder now though since the park is open 365 and everything has to be done at night or very early in the morning. It was a true luxury getting to come into an empty park during the day to do all of the work...

That's what I was wondering, like if there was an overnight crew there to remove the Demon's Door and Nightmare Props last night since those are the two closest scare zones to the front of the park...

I Love Donkeys!

So I still plan on visiting Magic Mountain next year, likely for Fright Fest (I don't feel like walking around the park in the summer where it could break 100 degrees).

What is the recommended path of attack as far as the coasters go? And I do know that for Platinum Flash Pass, you only get one reservation for X2 and Twisted Colossus?

If you plan on getting the Platinum Flash Pass, you don't really need a plan of attack. You can basically do whatever you want, whenever you want.

My plan of attack would be to visit on a Friday and go on the coasters during the day before the park gets busy at night.
