I thought it was a bit tacky for Cedar Point to charge an upcharge for the "Dinosaurs Alive" area for a children's trick-or-treat experience. All the other haunted areas are free (but there is a Fright Lane option upcharge available). Where there complaints about having to pay extra for the haunted areas?
Published: October 18, 2013 at 4:13 PMFull Disclosure, I actually went to Fright Fest two Saturdays in a row. The first Saturday was to take my camera and take pictures, the second was to actually experience the rides. I brought my big fancy camera. That first Saturday it POURED. However, I found out that all the characters have little shelters where you can take pictures with them. The second Saturday was a slight drizzel which we timed out with lunch.
Great America only charges for the haunted houses/trail. The scare zones are free. They have always charged (as long as I can remember). It actually used be be much more expensive. Another interesting touch was the Wicked Woods took place in the drained out Roaring Rapids.
