I thought there is Fright Fest today? The park used to be open until 8 on Columbus Day and they changed it to 10 a few years ago. When I would go the park that day, I would wait until around 5 to get there when crowds weren't bad getting in and with people going to the mazes. Ride lines were usually not bad later in the day. 10+ years ago the park also used to make Columbus Day bring a friend free day combined with some groups visiting the park and there were 2 hour lines.

You know what, I actually may be wrong on that. I saw a few people saying that but I don't see it on their website. Forgive me, I don't pay a ton of attention to the goings-on at Fright Fest aside from what pops up in my news feed since I generally avoid the event entirely.
Yeah that's understandable avoiding Fright Fest, I used to only go to the park that time of year on Friday nights when crowds were reasonable. Now when some of the coasters are getting hour waits even on a Friday night in September, I won't visit again until next month.
I don't think I can comprehend how insane FrightFest at Great Adventure gets after I've been to Kings Dominions Halloween Haunt and Scarowinds on Saturdays before. Holy crap there are way too many humans in these places for Halloween.

PS: No Fright Fest today, weather is about the same as Saturday, most people have to work and...

... just give up trying to make sense of it.
That picture makes no sense to me, why aren't the season pass holder doubling the membership line?
Not joking, two weekends ago 1 out of every 2 people in that line had a season pass and got turned away at the gate. Either needs a sign saying "no season passes" or a guy checking people's pass. Now this is a first world problem!
Pictures like that are why I will never visit the park on a Saturday (or Sunday) this time of year. Even with Flash Pass, that looks like it would be miserable just walking around, plus the wait to get through security and traffic exiting the park.
