Fright Fest Opening Day 2019!
SFMM was packed when I got there around 5pm. Parked way back in the gravel lot and cars were still coming in. Oh, and in Santa Clarita fashion, it was hot as hell too. Walked to the front gate for some exercise and still beat the bus. LOL
Inside, we checked into the sports bar for some pre haunt treats.
Some of the food. Strawberry milk/shake? Churro, Pork and Takis, Sriracha Hot AF Hot Wings, and a chocolate parfait.
Monsters Unleashed is fun to watch.
Next is a series of shots from inside and outside of the mazes. Again, when it comes to haunts, etc. in coaster dork talk, I'm as GP as they come. I enjoyed all the mazes. We did miss out on Vault 666 Unlocked though. All had some good scares, some missed, etc. Sure, the budget, and themes aren't as cool as Universal, but that doesn't mean Fright Fest isn't as fun. I actually had much more fun at Fright Fest than I did at HHN a couple days before. As a GP haunt guy, different things may make my time fun for me than the hard core haunt enthusiast.
On to some pics...
Something else that I haven't seen in a while is a hypnotist show. Back in the day, Magic Mountain used to have two shows a day in the small theater near the Batman stage. They were always hilarious. So, we checked out the one that will be there every Saturday thru November 2nd.
I also really enjoyed watching and listening to the band at Voodoo Nights at the YOLO Plaza.
Anyway, had an awesome time. Thanks to the SFMM team for a great event!
Also, I didn't get a chance to ride Apocalypse. I don't trust a SFMM Fright Fest attendees enough to leave Robb's camera and mine somewhere while I ride stuff. LOL I'll maybe hit it up on a Friday day to see for myself how it's running. I've heard and read good, great, better than ever, decent, etc. etc. lol
