The park was surprisingly not crowded, when I arrived. Then again, there was another three hours before it opened.
I know I haven't gotten enough shots of the initial entrance, so I got some.
Even an hour later, the crowds were not showing.
In case it wasn't known already, Fright Fest is weekends only, and No Trespassing on Six Flags Property.
I decided to take my camcorder and Tripod, this would later come back to bite me.
This part is fairly familiar, I'm the first one in line for security, and first couple in the whole plaza.
The thing that annoyed me the most is that Security saw me standing there with my tripod for a half hour. Then when the gates opened, that's when I was informed that they were not allowed. Once again, there is not signage of any kind with the exception of Selfie Sticks. So I had to leave it in one of my friend's car.
After riding V2, Batman, X-Flight, Raging Bull, and Viper, my friend and I had lunch at Mooseburger Lodge. With the large crowds now prevalent, the show building where Kick It Up A Notch is opened. The two buildings are connected. My favorite part of this is that the bar reminded me of National Lampoon's Family Vacation, also the old fashioned Coke signage is awesome.
Next on the list was Character Candy Trail.
Tweety really wanted a picture with me when he saw my DSLR, so I took a picture with him.
Exiting the Character Candy Trail gives nice views of Batman, as well as Sky Trek Tower and Larry the Gorilla. Gates of Hell looked particular cool. King Chaos, better known as Blood Bath during Fright Fest had a full queue. This is normally not the case, so I couldn't pass up the opportunity to snap a pic.
While in line for Whirligig, there are good views of V2's Vertical Spike.
Accidentally getting caught in the parade, pictures were mandatory.
The ghouls and Demon Overlord kicked it off.
The Lumberjacks brought good interactions to those who weren't expecting them to get up close. These killers have no problem putting a moving saw to your throat. (Don't worry there's no chains)
While it's good that the Trolleys have colored light-bulbs, and have nets on them, my critique is that the park has not invested in some new floats.
The demons end it with Westward zombies.
Don't forget about the clowns though!
None of my photos are edited.
With that being said, I think that these photos of Demon came of pretty damn well.
This one not so much.
Same have to go with the first shot of these quads.
With a cycle or two wait for Ricochet, who could one pass it up?
This one photo is my favorite that I've ever taken of any one coaster.
Now for some highlights of the no Mercy showing of Love at First Fright, or LAFF. Enjoy!
