Most definitely this is due to pain. This is clearly the scariest thing at the park during fright fest.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

I actually liked Predator back in May... That being said, I did ride in the very front and the people behind me thought they broke their ribs.

The real pain at this park comes from Mind Eraser.

The ride is smooth enough if you Mean Streak it but it's also just not that good of a ride.

Staying for the weekend in a cabin. Went through two scare zones Screampunk and Voodoo Curse tonight and there wasn't anything in either. Like not one scare actor. I'm used to cedar point and wonderland that have plenty, is this normal? Will try the haunted houses tomorrow.

^ Depending on when you went through the zones the scare actors may have moved over to the main entrance for “Passage of the Damned” or whatever they call it.

PSA: do NOT go to SFDL Fright Fest and expect anything like Cedar Point’s HAUNT. They are two wildly different sides of the spectrum and you will be disappointed guaranteed if that’s your mindset.

And how much extra does it cost this year to do the mazes? Just curious.

It's one thing if they were included with a (regular/gold) season pass or lower tiered membership (but then it might have "Gold pass syndrome" and be more crowded... they are making money off of it so why stop) -- we gave up on Six Flags haunts after going to 3 or 4 different parks thinking they might get better, but now we just go for the rides even at new SF parks.

Ya I wasn't expecting Halloween Haunt in terms of number of scare zones or houses, but I figured they would try to make the few they had half decent. The haunt near ride of steel literally consists of two fog machines and two projectors. They should probably just not even bother and just keep the uncharge haunted houses if that's all they can manage.
