Thanks for the info! Guess I’ll take my chances.

It could be a category 5 hurricane and as long as more than a few hundred people are in the park spending money they'll stay open. Their weather policy with the coasters is generally good except for Ka, they usually close it in any type of precipitation. Toro and Nitro and whatnot? They'll run them in a monsoon if you're willing to ride them.

I just swallowed a whole donkey!

Toro and Nitro in a massive rainstorm? Hell yeah I'd do that!

Well they've definitely relaxed their camera policy a ton. I had no issues getting my big ass camera or lens in. They didn't even mention it. I actually asked them about it too and they were like "We don't care about lenses and cameras, just no tripods or selfie sticks"

Yesterday was probably one of THE BEST if not THE BEST Fright Fest experiences I've ever had. The whole day the midways were crowded but the rides were walk ons. The only rides that garnered lines the whole day were Wonder Woman and Justice League. Toro, Ka, Nitro were walk on.

We redeemed our free one maze pass and I want a refund because we did Cell Block 6 and there were about 3 scare actors in the whole maze. It's still early for Fright Fest and not peak season but I'm very glad I didn't pay for it because I got scared exactly one time and that's because I turned the corner and the actor was RIGHT there.

Anyways, here's some photos

^^Those are excellent pics! Sounds like you might have gone into the maze during a breaking period, or maybe their staffing sucks for FF. Thanks for the TR.

Nice pics! I'm jealous of the walk-on day you had. Well done.

Goddamn those are some great shots!

I'll be sure to pass the news about the relaxed camera policy along to my wife. She's one of the ones that got turned away with her DSLR during a previous Holiday In The Park due to overenthusiastic security.
That coaster dad [336] and that coaster kiddo [218]. Road trip buddies for life.
Dad's faves: Fury 325. Phantom's Revenge. Twisted Timbers. Intimidator 305. El Toro.

Kiddo's faves: Talon. Alpengeist. Raptor. Twisted Timbers. Fury 325.
