p. 550 - Hallowfest trip report!

Recommended Posts

It was only using one train during our visit in late June (maybe early July). I don't remember which train was running.

Speaking of the now Defunt Oak Island. Fun fact, in the Spring Sixflags bought out all their warehouses and two haunted houses that were sold to KK and shipped most of it to Texas for distribution at

Thank you @bert425! I usually get the display up within a week since I only have a week off of school before Thanksgiving. Thankfully my family are wonderful hardworking elves so I don't have to insta

Hey everyone, its been awhile since I've done much more than browse the board, but I wanted to ask everyone here for some deep hard prayers for Josh (HWFan)... Some of you may already know whats going

How much time has Eagle spent with single train ops this year? I don't think I've seen the red train running.

 

Has anyone else?

 

Only red train all weekend (Friday - Sunday). Longest line in the park. All other coasters dispatching quickly, with 2 trains.

It's Six Flags, not Busch. It's going to house something that will make the money, but at least it looks nice.

 

Good to see my favorite ride in the park getting a new roof.

I'm genuinely impressed that they renovated that little stand for displaying a carousel horse. That's not a usual Six Flags move.

Looks like they have finally made a decision about a Halloween event. Modified event with no haunt mazes but they will have outdoor scare zones and shows on the Palace porch. Sat and Sun 2-10, details on the app and website. Sounds like a reasonable compromise. They are also still showing HITP under events on the website.

It sounds like they're doing an event that retains more of the original experience than Cedar Fair.

 

I like it.

 

Also our best chance for real night rides at SFSL.

 

Edit: Scare zone decoration storage boxes are being moved into their positions. The troll boxes are sitting next to Colossus now.

I'm planning to visit the park tomorrow. To those who have been this season, is it worth it? I should be there all day. The primary driving factor is my fear of getting stuck in one of the indoor queues (Mr. Freeze, Batman, JL, etc.) with people not wearing their face masks.

JL is closed for the season, due to the entire experience being inside. Batman not too bad because the inside part is mostly visible to ride ops that will ask people to wear their masks (not that that is a guarantee it will happen) It seldom backs up past the station. Biggest issue is probably Freeze where the line is out of site of the ride ops. I can tell you that in addition to the trains being disinfected the ride ops also sanitize the railings periodically, in case that helps you make a decision.

I was there 2 weeks ago. It was well worth it for me, everything was open except JL and I had a blast.

 

However - if you are scared of indoor queues with masks, stay away from Mr. Freeze. Batman I used my skip the lines so can't really say.

It's part of Fright Fest, but chances are you'll probably really die from it.

Generally face mask use doesn't change in indoor queues in my experience, but distance is less of a sure thing - probably a result of people trying to stay out of the sun. It's an additional argument for adding shade in the park.

The park has publicly announced they will be open for HIP now. Glad Six Flags has found a way to keep some of the parks open through all that is going on in the world, and more importantly, keeping their team members employed.

Yep. Cedar Fair is closing all but their biggest parks on Labor Day. And even the ones staying open are getting a significantly smaller fall event. And Winterfest is cancelled period.

 

Six Flags is managing to basically have a full Fright Fest minus only the haunted houses. AND is still doing their winter event everywhere they'd already rolled it out to before. None of the parks are ending their season before they ordinarily would.

 

Six Flags is handling this better. Hands down.

If the events are profitable I say good job Six Flags. If they are losing money then it seems useless

Unless the earnings reports end up saying differently.

True.

 

But I'd think there's a reason they waited to announce both Hallowfest and HITP. They have the numbers already.
