So I'm going up there from 10/31-11/3 and staying overnight at Days Inn Windsor/Highstown about 13 miles away.

I'll very likely get the Flash Pass (gold should be sufficient enough?) and the Flash pass for the Fright Fest attractions :)

Edit: I think Diamond and Diamond Elite members get a Flash Pass discount?

Ah, fair enough.

I've been told/read here that crowds are nucking futs during Fright Fest at GAdv. I likely won't blow too much on Flash Passes; maybe just for the final day of FF on the 3rd (figure I can hit up some on Thursday, Friday and Saturday and go all out on Sunday)

I'm a know-it-all about donkeys!

Halloween is Thursday but fright fest continues until Sunday with full hours.

Anyone been to fright fest after Halloween before and know what kind of crowd it is?

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Crowds are impossible to predict at this park. Given the forecast for nice (but cool) weather where it's Fright Fest but after Halloween something like Kingda Ka's line could be anything from 15 minutes to 150 minutes Saturday and neither would surprise me. I'm serious...

Note that there's a Grape Adventure event going on and that the Safari is only open as an upcharge as part of that event. Everything else is open as normal.

I'm taking the Saturday plunge. (And yes I mean that literally, as apparently for some unknown reason they haven't drained the log flume yet; besides, I've always wanted to ride a flume in November.) Since for the majority of Americans spooky season immediately ends at 11:59 PM on October 31st, and then it's Black Friday doomsday prepping time / Hallmark Channel Christmas, I'm hoping that translates into low crowds at the park. But as Bill says, ya never know.

Wish me luck.

I'm really proud of them for running their flume this late. It's very unlike them.

... now just stop the stupid grouping.

Is this the first year they've been running the flume post Labor Day weekend (when it usually closes)?

I hope this also means that they will open the flume earlier in the season as well. It was always fun seeing it open in March/April even if it was barely above freezing and hoping no one was at the coin operated sprayers to get you soaked.
