  1. ^ I would recommend going on a Sunday. If you don't ride anything you should be able to get everything done in a couple hours, that's including the shows. Although if you have to go on a Friday or Saturday I would recommend the Madame Marie Chophouse meal which includes dinner and a front of the line pass for one maze of your choice. It's $20 with a season pass, after the meal I would go and do the the mazes in the back of the park and work your way back up front, then you can use the front of the line pass for one of the mazes towards the front if the line is long.


    Info for the Chophouse meal can be found at, Halloween Haunt site.

  2. The park announced a new show today that will be featured at Halloween Haunt!


    "Enter this abandoned movie theater at your own risk as the owner has gone mad! For one last night, he will view his favorite horror movies before the wrecking ball destroys his life. To his shock, the screen comes to life and haunts his soul. Do you dare to join the viewing party???"


    This is the first show in Halloween Haunt history to feature ice skaters!


  3. One thing I forgot to mention in last night's write up: it sounded like Gold Striker was running a little dry, was making these bat screeching noises starting at midway turn all up until the brake run. It was a different sounding screech from what I heard during promo shoot or even the screeching Tonerre De Zeus at Park Asterix does now. It still hauled but the sounds were cringe-worthy, like nails on a chalkboard.

    I notice this on Lightning Racer all the time when the trains are nearly empty. Was the train full?



    The train was completely full when it made the noise. The ride was down this morning with maintenance workers walking the tack and inspecting the rails it looked like. (Going off a friends facebook picture.) What im thinking is they were putting a type of lube on the rails so it doesn't make that noise anymore.

  4. I was at the park the other day and it was complete dead since school had started up. Gold Striker had a 10-15 minute wait and most of the other rides were just a walkon.


    A couple new things I noticed on my visit:


    Outside Gold Striker gifts there are these themed TNT planter boxes.


    Close up of the barrel.


    The building for Zombie High is up, the maze should start going up in a couple weeks:


    During Labor Day weekend the park is having a guest appreciation event, $15 for all you can eat meal!

  5. Zombie High's structure is now up. It's a clone of Madame Marie's shed.


    Extremely busy at the park today. At 10:30, Gold Striker's line was stretching into Star Tower's entrance, and didn't get much better throughout the day. Even Centrifuge's overflow was full!


    Although, Boomerang Bay was dead from 11-1, which led to some mini-ERT on all the slides.



    Crazy that the crowds were like this on a Sunday, im guessing everyone is getting in one last visit before school starts.

  6. Was at CGA today.


    Rode Goldy for the first time, and I got to say... Gold Striker is one of the BEST wooden coasters out there. This is coming from a person that has ridden some of the best wooden ones there are such as Voyage, El Toro, and Lightning Racer.

    -park was packed. extremely packed. Thank the Cedar Fair gods for Fast Lane

    -lines for everything. Waited almost an hour to get food.

    -Good operations on all but Grizzly

    -A "Pardon our dust" sign in front of Grizzly. IRON GRIZZLY! NEW FOR 2014


    I was wondering how packed it was today with the Summersplash concert going on, good thing you got Fast Lane! Just curious but how were the lines for the rides? ( I'm sure they were long, just wondering how long.)

  7. Zombie High? Sounds like CGA is recycling Hatchet High from Knott's.


    Although I don't know much about that maze, I wouldn't be surprised if it used somewhat of the same story line. I'm just happy that the park has a really good haunt team, Madame Marie was one of the best mazes last year as far as details go. So I expect about the same if not better from the two new mazes this year.

  8. I always look forward to new mazes! It'll be interesting to see what they do with it.



    I know at Knott's it wasn't the strongest maze for scares from what I've heard, so it will interesting to see what the park does with it.



    Also to anyone wondering, only parts of it were taken from Knott's, most of the maze will be brand new at Great America.
