Fright Fest Preparations
The Aftermath, where brave souls enter a post apocalyptic city inhabited by nomad warriors who rule with bone-crushing iron fists and the dead stalk the living is returning to the Action Sports Arena.
Chupacabra, where guests come face to face with this elusive blood-thirsty creature as it terrorizes the local Dia De Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) festival is returning to Baja Ridge. The only visible construction from outside the maze are popcorn lights.
A reincarnation of the Willoughby family’s beloved haunted mansion, Willoughby’s Resurrected, will include more hair-raising horror around each nightmarish-turn and down long harrowing hallways. Outside the entrance of the maze, no work is visible.
Fright Fest 2012 will feature the following mazes:
Blackout – Former Log Jammer Queue (New Maze)
Jokesters Hideout – Former Flashback Queue
Lecters Slaughterhouse – Gotham City
Cursed – Tidal Wave Queue
Aftermath – Action Theater
Black Widow – Samurai Summit (New Maze)
Willoughby’s Haunted Mansion – Samurai Summit (near Ninja and Sky Tower) (New Maze)
Chupacabra – Baja Ridge
Fright Fest will be open Friday, Saturday and Sunday – October 5 through 28.

The other part of Full Throttle construction that hasn’t received a lot of news is the full re-theme of the High Sierra Territory. Not much has been revealed on what the re-theme will include but it’s safe to say most of the High Sierra Themeing will be taken out or perhaps moved to another location in the park.
Around the Park
The Off-Season has officially arrived. Lex Luthor had a 5-minute wait on a Saturday afternoon. Operations on the ride have been great with about 45 seconds between dispatches. It appears most people are intimidated by the ride, but take our word for it, it’s fun!!! Ride it.
That will wrap it up for this week. Our next update we will hopefully have some more news on Fright Fest.
