Photo TR: SFNE Fright Fest, 10-27-07


Recommended Posts

OK, so it's a week late, but here it is.

 

The suspects:

Allan, up from PA for the weekend.

Pete (that would be me)

Corey, my 11 year old brother (the middle brother)...

 

The scene:

Six Flags New England Fright Fest, 10-27-07.

 

The story:

We did the all-day thing for Fright Fest, starting with our arrival at about 12:30. It was Allan's first time at SFNE, and oddly I still had two credits to get myself (Great Chase and Flashback - got 'em both, thank you very much), so we made with the coastering right away. Lemme backtrack a bit first, though, and mention Allan's D'Angelo's lunch credit. New Englanders will understand the significance of introducing Allan to the miracle that is the D'Angelo Sandwich Shop. Being a native of the greater Philadelphia area, of course he ordered a steak and cheese. I think he was impressed. Corey and I, of course, are both native to Massachusetts, so D'Angelo is a regular thing for us...lucky us!

 

The day was wet (off-and-on mild rain all day), but it wasn't enough to "dampen" the fun. We were expecting the "Norwalk Crew" but unfortunately they couldn't make it...maybe next time, guys? The crowd started off really light and grew a bit during the course of the day, but even at its heaviest we never really waited more than 20 minutes or so for anything, and most of our early rides were walk-ons or nearly so.

 

Fright Fest-specific attractions were collectively a crapshoot. The downside was that several walk-throughs were upcharged (unlike last year, if I recall correctly). Mystery Mansion (in Houdini's Great Escape) and Wicked Woods (at the picnic grove) could be seen on a combo ticket, but Wicked Woods was pretty much flooded out, so we saved ourselved $3.00 and just did Mystery Mansion. Waited maybe 25 minutes, but it was actually pretty good.

 

Anyway, the photos tell the rest of the story:

The brothers. Yes, there really is a 23-year age gap between us, and yes, we really are brothers.

The ONE thing Cedar Fair can learn from Six Flags: trash cans need not travel in packs.

Gotham City Crime Wave actually looks pretty nice in its new home...and they turned the pictures around the right way.

Allan doesn't even have to ride to get his head bashed by Mind Eraser.

Mind Eraser was strangely kinda smooth (well, smoother than normal).

SLC's may be many things, but they're actually quite picturesque.

This was not our car.

Still trying to wrap my brain around THAT.

More empty station goodness.

Tall, hot, and plastic...just like any other aspiring starlet.

Near-empty parking lot. This is a thing of beauty.

Arrival.

Cyclone, as seen from Main St.

They can't be bothered to put flowers in any other D'Angelo's, but the one in a highway service plaza gets them. Go figure.

594808954_Picture012.jpg.e06abf309f12a1b2f50967f70d988c00.jpg

Corey loves D'Angelo's as much as I do.

1154067813_Picture011.jpg.198b95d9bc08d9818906e6ff1c9d9e6d.jpg

This one is mine. I like my onions burned. If the onions catch fire and set off the fire suppression system, dust them off and give them to me.

You take a pic of the paint-peeling Braga and not the brand new, opened yestereday one in Providence? Pshaw!

 

I can't believe the weather was that "nice" considering how sucky it ended up being around here. But what were you thinking, you should have been going to the market to get Milk and Bread.

 

 

Looks like a good day even without SUpes.

^ I'm already planning an opening-day trip with my friend Tracy (yet another person who couldn't make it last Saturday), so get my number from Jay and we'll make a day of it!

Considering the weather we had, we couldn't even SEE the I-Way on the way to SFNE, and the trip back was too dark. Judging from the news this week, we really didn't miss much!
