I thought it was busy when we went at the end of September and left at 7:30 and there was traffic down 537 in both directions for miles because of the park. I'm sorry but I would have taken one look at that and left. How anyone can find that even slightly enjoyable is beyond me.

Holy crap you have a HUGE donkey!

I stand by my assessment that if you want to visit Fright Fest, the best time is the last week of September

Con: 2 of the mazes arent open yet
Pro: You dont shoot yourself in the head as soon as you get to the park

I just made a donkey in No Limits!

I'm thinking of going next week. How are the crowds on a Friday night, and is the price lower due to the operating hours?

Why do I still have a donkey title???

It's barely cheaper, but it's still a terrible deal.

The ticket is $64.99 and parking is $23.45 and it doesn't include any haunt mazes, So basically it's $88.44.

For like $12 more you can get a gold plus membership (billed as $8.40 per month) that's good for a minimum of 15 months (but basically until you cancel it), includes parking, gives you 20% off everything in the park and gets you into every park in the chain with free parking for all 15 months (though the 3 free months are sort of weird and only applied if you cancel because... Six Flags).

Nobody should ever buy a day ticket to a Six Flags park unless they're visiting from another country and won't be back for over a year. :lol:

It's fun to check Queue Times on a Saturday in October. Justice League and Green Lantern, 2 1/2 hours each. Nitro, Kingda Ka, Superman and Bizarro all 1 hour 40 minutes.

I can't wait to see the wait times next Saturday since that is usually the most crowded day of the year.

Don't put that donkey on the floor!

I know Green Lantern's wait time is exacerbated by it's loading procedure. It warms my heart, nevertheless, to see a Stand Up drawing that kind of line.
Been you to have any spike, man?

This B&M donkey is so smooth!

Does anybody know what the deal is for the week of November 8th-11th. Christmas in the park doesn’t start until the following weekend. Is it still fright fest? Is the whole park going to be open? And is there any particular reason it is open during the week at that time? It seems like an odd time for the park to be open so I was thinking of going. Thanks for he help!

There isn't Fright Fest, just regular operations. On the weekdays, Frontier Adventures will possibly be closed, almost everything else is open including all the other coasters. They are open because NJ schools are closed. I have gone on Thursday or Friday the last 3 years in a row and it's very low crowds.

It's open because they're awesome. Last weekend to experience Toro; Safari closed though. Last year Nitro and Ka were closed at least a day each due to cold and weather, but they got out the blowtorches and opened Ka on Sunday.
