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.


So the Rue Le Dodge gets transformed similarly as Chubasco?? I didn't know that!


Chubasco is way better! :D

I've done both. Chubasco gets a full Sound, Lights, and effects package. Dodge just has some blacklights and light fog. Wasn't anything to write home about

They usually retheme it to The Crows, but they've stopped doing that the past few years. Not sure about any special cycles or anything

Condor has a special cycle for FF. The ride sort of shuts down at the top...scared the carp out of me the first time. :lol:

Last year they were doing special cycles on Condor. I forgot they did that and I freaked out when it stopped at the top.

Just an FYI regular wrist bands are going for $35.00 no word on the express ones or the season pass card I'm thinking at least $45.00

I saw on the Six Flags website that the season pass wristband is also 35.00. The express has gone up to 50.00.

I'm not sure if there is one within Metropolis Plaza itself. But it seems that one has been setup in the Demon crossing between there and County Fair.

It seems like the other side always wins on American Eagle :?
Also, I've ridden Goliath 23 times in one day. HBU? :roll: :P

HAUNTED HOUSE WRISTBAND UPDATE: $50.00 express I'll be seeing y'all in the regular line. We have the most expensive Fright Fest in the chain Magic mountain's express is only $32. and their regular is $17, and honestly unless you are young or someone says boo in a lit room and you jump it isn't worth $100.00 for 2 especially when 2 can get into Statesville for $60.00.

Every time we purchased wristbands, we were able to get a season pass discount. Still a little pricey, though.

ETA: The link for the FF map doesn't work on the website :(

I wish I would have saw your post before I posted. How did you find out so early? I tried and kept getting the run around!

I never have done a scare zone or whatever... not that I'm against it I'm just a roller coaster enthusiast yang. Is it worth taking time out of riding coasters to do a few?

That's probably it. During Out in the Park that area was roped off. Only way into SWT was through the entrance near Hometown Square.

I went on the Six Flags website to look like I was buying a new season pass which I wasn't and you go under the other items/attractions tab and you can see the wristband prices there.

I was doing that too, but they were only giving me the regular not the express option, weird this business of them not knowing what the houses cost til 3 days before is crap! and honestly do we have to have the most expensive FF in the chain?!

The names of the houses this year appear to be the same, is the content generally the same then? Do you have to buy a HH Season pass invdividually or does it work across parks? i'm guessing it's like the picture pass, purchased park only...heading to georgia in a few weeks, thought we might hit 6F there

When you click on the attractions tab and see flights for Dare Devil Dive, the Express wristband is right next to it. It says "Double flight on Dive" And right next to it is the Express one.

Can someone post a picture of the King Chaos tombstone?

Also looks like the candy trail has been moved to Buccaneer Battle's spot. Now I actually have reason to go there :lol:
