It maybe a little to early for this, but since the props are starting to come out at SFNE i figured they started coming out at Gadv...

So what are you guys expecting this year? Any new Trails? New Shows? More hours? Even Less hours? Lets hear your input. =]

Oh and is there a reason why DMP has to use the Ferris Wheels line? Couldn't they just put it somewhere else in the park so they could have one more ride open to try and fight the lines?

Why do I feel like this has been answered about a million times? It's not just a stage...the ferris wheel provides an excellent place to put the lights and the location is the best place for the crowds.

It's rough, freaky, and sometimes not worth the long wait.

One thing I'd like to see change is the charging for the walkthroughs. At least they should let passholders go through once through each walkthrough each visit to the park for free (I think last year or the year before as well SFMM let passholders go through the walkthroughs for free). What makes it worse is their main competition (Dorney) has around 11 walkthroughs both indoors and outdoors included with park admission.

Probably the only good side of Mark Kane being gone is the hayride coming back is now a viable option. Mark has always said he did not like guests being in backstage areas.....maybe...just maybe Fitzgerald wont mind....esspecially since he's worked at our park before when the hayride was still around!

Does the tea cups have a tent over or is it a real building? If its a real building, it may be possible to just put some fake walls to enclose the ride and hang some strobes and speakers from the top and bam, Terror Twister 2. =]

Do you guys think because we have the old Paramount President, that our Fright Fest will be better?

^ It is debatable, but seeing as atmosphere and theming were definitely very important at the Paramount parks, hopefully this nature will rub off on our park.

Is the park normally decently themed for fright fest? I've never been to GAdv for fright fest, only SFNE so i have no idea what the park is like.

Do they normally have the same trails year after year with little to no change like SFNE? or do they mix it up a bit?

It would be awesome if they offered a Fright Fest Funatics Reward - possibly one free walk-through of a terror trail.
