I can't remember seeing a fixture like that elsewhere -except maybe for the "old time" photo booth.

D

That creepy hand is located in Prominade Pizza. It is definitely one of the most bizarre fixtures I have seen.

The park is still filling out the schedule. There will be June/July hours added as well as other deletions or corrections. Interestingly it appears Fright Fest will go through November 3rd this year with the park being OPEN the full week of Halloween. Hope this holds true. Meanwhile over at White Water the schedule remains blank.

That's what I figured but it was just odd to see esp since those are major park months. Well any idea on what crowds tend to be like on a Sunday in early june?

That is when I would most likely have to go, OR I noticed there's one random day in Oct (Monday the 7th) that has fairly full hours. Is this another example of the schedule not being done or is this a random day? If so, any idea why?
Its actually a pretty straightforward drive from Tallahassee to Atlanta, if I could go on a weekday in Oct I imagine crowds would be small and I dont have to fly. But only if its full operations of course

This is the helix after the second lift. It was re-profiled in the renovation by Hopkins. In fact directly after the second left there used to be a tunnel. (you can tell where it was top was removed and just retention walls left). after the tunnel you would slowly complete the turn to the left an then turn right, then make this steep sweeping drop and go over the the third lift which is actually the lift you see in this picture. Then on through the track house and down in the the final tunnel. Also the tree it old shot with the power box at the bottom is still there. See attached photo with slow helix. The view in the original promo video was from the top of the hill on the right of this photo, looking toward the third lift and track house. This was my favorite ride back in the 60's and 70's until Scream Machine and Mindbender. I still get a chill when I see photos of the old Horror House. LOL

Once the school year ends, weekends in summer are fairly crowded - Sundays less so than Saturdays, but still busy. The October Monday date you mention is Columbus Day and since area schools are off, the park adds that day to the calendar. Be aware though that on this day the park may operate the rides only and not the usual Fright Fest activities. Still, with low attendance it is a great day to get your coaster credits!

I'm hoping March 16-17 has decent weather. Looking to drive down from East TN. Looks like this would be a good time to visit between opening weekend and the school music competitions starting the following week.

First trip to an amusement park in 20+ years. Really excited to visit SFOG again and ride some new coasters.

Any word on Scorcher? Has anyone been able to ride by the park to see if any paint prep work or anything is going on with it?

It is getting repainted this year but the color isn't known. What is known is splash waterfalls will not be opening again.

Thank you for posting the video here! I was sad I couldn’t go. I went last year and it was a great experience. I’m curious what the “breaking news” is but I guess I’ll have to wait and see!
