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.

Oh, after going to the one last year I'm absolutely certain you are correct

My favorite part of the haunt last year was the motion activated windshield wiper style corpse on the side of an rv... I don't even know what it was really supposed to accomplish (sorry for ruining the high class surprise for anyone who has yet to experience the amazing layout of Camp Scumshine)

^ honestly I’ll take it if it boosts revenue for the park.

All I cared about last year was the Halloween laser show and the fog and lights around the scare zones. I had zero intentions of paying for the houses last year as I had just as much fun experiencing the park in October and seeing it all fogged up again after so long. If cheap houses is what it takes to get people through the gates then so be it. 4 houses with hour long lines is by no means bad for the park.

I go to Cedar Point for their haunt event and then come back to Darien for some end of season coaster riding. Bring on Fright(fully cheap) Fest™!

Six Flags St. Louis posted a teaser on their Facebook account yesterday. Six Flags Darien Lake still hasn't posted anything teaser related on any of their accounts from what I can tell. :(

Teasers are pointless. Six Flags cearly doesnt do them on the same level as CF, and even then CF only seems to do it for major coasters. And ultimately the teasers barely relate to the project at hand. So again... who cares if they tease or not.
