Visibility/Location: Since it's at great america it is very easy to see. Plus you cant miss the spiders on the american eagle.

Wait Entertainment: There wasnt much wait entertainment in the lines for the houses, but there were many actors roaming the different themed areas around the park. Six flags did a great job with the theming this year. The area 51 area was really decorated well with a giant UFO in the middle and captured aliens in cages.

Length of Event: Out of the three haunted houses, The Mausoleum of Terror was around 10 min long. Sleepy hollow in 3D was 5 min, and The Fallen Giant was around 5 and a half min.

Actor Performance: In the sleepy hollow haunted house the actors' performances were not that great and there werent that many actors inside the haunt. The actors in the haunt were more funny than scary, but it was supposed to be a family fun house. The actors performances in Mausoleum of Terror were really quite good. They all stayed in character and mad me and my friend jump quite a bit. The Fallen giant had to have the best actors out of any of the other haunted houses at six flags. The actors in this atraction reminded me alot of the actors at brookfields haunted house. They were very intense and there were alot of them. The Fallen giant was my favorite atraction at this years fright fest.

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: In the sleepy hollow haunt we did run into another group and the workers could have spaced us out a little better. In Mausoleum of Terror the flow was great we never ran into another group but we did get lost in the mirror maz which was kind of fun. Since it was the end of the night it was only me and my friend in the Fallen Giant and there were no other groups to run into.That was great because we were the focus of the actors attention and it was really special.

Appropriate Ages: all ages. there is something for everyone at fright fest.

Props / Special FX: Props were lacking in the sleepy hollow haunt,But the other two haunts were well equiped with special effects especially the Mausoleum of Terror.

Costumes / Make-up: the costumes were great at this years fright fest. My favorites were the people in straight jackets who would slide on there knees to scare you.

Summary: I had such a great time at this years fright fest. We went on the 7th which was a day six flags was closed to the general public so all of the lines we very short. another special thing six flags did for this years fright fest was bring back the old themeing for demon which looked sooo spooky. If you havent been to fright fest before I definately recomend it. It was a blast!!!
