Probably just a glitch since all of the Fright Fest stuff is up, but King Chaos is called Blood Bath on it's page like it usually is for Fright Fest: https://www.sixflags.com/greatamerica/a ... king-chaos

Also kind of funny that when you click on the map it brings you to a dead link. Probably contains a spoiler (Like last year's had the advertisement for Joker on it)

A few things I heard today from some friends of mine that I won't mention their names but clowns are back in front of Flight and I heard that there might be more than last year. Masquerade ball is in Orleans not in Mardi this year. Yankee is a dead zone. Infestation is fully enclosed up now. Rapids was drained this afternoon. Candy trail has supposedly been moved in front of Battle where the guns are and from what I could tell the queue for Manslaughter is completely gone now and cleared out..this coming from the top of Bull looking down. Don't know if they're building a new queue line or what they're doing there. Also, Uprising will not be different this year and I heard that Ringmaster's cabaret will be in GMH along side LAFF.

I can't see ringmasters cabaret being in grand music hall with Love at fright fright because there are to many props used for LAFF. I think its going to be in wilderness theater like for Dead's man party which i am happy to see that leave because it has horrible and I hope its not the same thing but re named.

The webpage specifically says Ringmasters Cabaret is in Grand Music Hall. I guess it's possible the webpage is wrong, but it's more than just some rumor somebody heard.

Guessing LAFF during the day and early evening, then the last show or two of the day is the new one. Guess it won't have a very fancy set...

We loved it. That is why variety is good, can't please everyone with the same thing. :mrgreen:

Added thought: Just like we can't understand how Susan Rosen has been there for so long. :roll:

For all the years you've been an enthusiast it still surprises me you have yet to experience it.

Seriously, get on it man! :P

Does anyone know when the FF website will sell the passes for the houses? Now I saw you can add it onto your season pass during the flash sale and I already paid for my pass and I went to add it on there and you can't now until the sale is over? The passes are 29.99 and I was told my Guest Relations that it's gonna go up after the sale is over tomorrow. Which sucks but I will still buy it nonetheless. I'm just curious to know when the FF site will sell the passes as of right now it says "Coming Soon"

Just noticed they posted show times for some of the entertainment...

In paricular, Ringmaster's Cabaret is set as:
Fridays: 7:30 pm
Saturdays: 4:00 pm, 6:45 pm, 9:00 pm
Sundays: 4:00 pm, 6:45 pm

Love At First Fright times not yet posted.

It will be interesting to see how they interleave if they are really both in the Grand Music Hall.

I guess they aren't having a Dead Man's Party or using the Wilderness Theater this year... ???

I didn't see DMP last year but I think Ringmaster's Cabaret is Dead Man's Party revamped.

The Mardi Gras Stage did appear to have an extension added to it, so maybe that could be the location of a new show?

It's possible that's a buyout date

Okay so I am submitting a senior "now and then" for the yearbook and I found a picture of me from 2003 at Cedar Point on the bumper cars. I want to submit it but I do not have the "now" picture. So I was thinking of taking it on the bumper cars at SFGAm... but I just realized... don't they board up Rue Le Dodge for Fright Fest? Surely I couldn't recreate the picture if its boarded up. I haven't ridden RLD during FF, what is it like inside? Really want to submit this photo but I don't think I can submit the "now" picture when the park opens back up in April.

Ok. Rue Le Morgue is lit up inside while boarding. Once the ride starts all the lights go out and the music plays. Fog machine inside as well. You could probably take the pic before the ride starts. Inside the que its set up like a morgue.....body bags and what not. Hope this helps.
