Still no teasers yet? Even Six Flags America has already begun to tease their 2020 attraction.

Whatever’s coming will be very likely a surprise to most of us, but I highly doubt it will shock any of us.

I was thinking the same thing today. Maybe no teasers means no new major attraction

Wrong answers only:

Theyre removing the go karts for a B&M dive machine over the lake, with a second dive over the lake behind the laser show. Its going to be called Common Tern.

So the new halloween haunt is gonna be in the SAME building as Jungle Apocalypse..? How are they gonna fit two queues and haunts in the same building, WITHOUT people getting confused?

^ Ropes? Have you ever been to Fright world or House of horrors in the area. They fit 6 haunted houses in one building. I don't think people will be upset if they end up in the "Wrong" haunted house line....

The better example is at SFGAm but this will have to do.

Some Six Flags parks do this for two attractions. Could be confusing for some, but most of the time people figure it out.

SFNE’s case actually just goes up toward a plaza with two other ride signs, but SFGAm’s case has two queues that start at the same point. One for the American Eagle and the other for their skycoaster.

:lol: This is incredibly common for haunt events. They'll figure it out.

It doesn't really matter if they're in the same building, that building is giant. What does matter is that the Jungle Apocalypse haunt was really really stupid. I went on an insanely busy night last year and each haunt had an hour plus wait so I only made it to two of them, they were both really bad.
It seems staffing is a big issue for their haunts that I was in last year, the scare zones had maybe one or two scare actors and I think I only saw one scare actor in each of the mazes that I was in.

The new haunt will be really, really stupid too. It's a Six Flags Fright Fest event. They don't care.

I actually love a lot of things that Six Flags has been doing lately but they seem to fundamentally believe that people will show up in droves for Fright Fest no matter how little effort they put into it and (to their credit), they seem to be 100% correct.
