Great Adventure's Fright Fest has begun again! I visited the park with Jason and Rob to check out this year's Dead Man's Party and Ghoulmaster's Ghosts shows. (They're my favorite!)

 

This was honestly the best opening weekend for Fright Fest that I've been to; you couldn't even tell it was the first day.

 

This year, they've gotten rid of the Guest List show, returning to only the "classic/original" Dead Man's Party show, but with a few changes.

 

Both Dead Man's Party and Ghoulmaster's Ghosts are fantastic this year. #TeamMissPanda

 

Times:

The Awakening is at 6pm.

DMP runs shows at 6:15, 7:45, 9:15, and on Fri/Sat: 10:45

GMG runs shows at 6:45, 8:15, 9:45, and on Fri/Sat: 11:15

The Manor and Total Darkness open at 5:30 on Fri, 2pm on Sat/Sun

Other trails all open at "Dusk"..

 

 

 

 

I arrived at the park around 3:20pm. It took 35minutes to park; the entire road from the parking entrance booth to the actual lot entrance was bumper-to-bumper-"everybody merge now" chaos. They had another company provide plenty of parking attendants to direct traffic, but I can't decide if their absurd placement of cones and strategy for parking cars helped or hurt the process.

First, I went to see my friend Frank at the Six Flags Spooktacular Street Party. I only caught the end of it from the back, but I suppose it was... spooktacular.

Afterward, Rob and I ate at Granny's. I had Flag's Famous Chicken Strips. I love the sweet and sour sauce they have there.

I believe it was a little after 5pm, so we waited at the Dead Man's Party stage until the Awakening.

We watched the Awakening, followed by Dead Man's Party, followed by Ghoulmaster's Ghosts, followed by Dead Man's Party again.

Jason and Rob took forever to do the Crop Circles trail, while I took pictures around the park. I ran into Harry from Great Adventure History, who said he waited 40minutes for Crop circles with the Scare pass (skip the line pass).

After Rob left, Jason and I did the Asylum trail. We have the scare pass, and there was actually no one in the scare pass line despite a pretty long normal line.

We then watched Ghoulmaster's Ghosts again, then did Asylum again when we came out before heading out of the park.

 

The park was really crowded during the day, but it died down at night.

 

 

Alright, alright.. pictures:

Went last night. Seemed like they put in a lot more work than they did for last year's FF. Went on The Manor, Voodoo Island, Wasteland, and Crop Circles. And Crop Circles was by far the best (And had the longest line) So it seems like they're going in the right direction with FF this year, so hopefully the 2 new houses next year, and as good as Crop Circles.
