Based on my observance of last October-- crowds are pretty light. Especially since nothing new is going on at BGT (except the new Sesame Street area), lines should be relatively short on weekdays. Even weekends it was kinda/sorta slow-- no queues really broke 60 minutes.

In other words-- you can experience everything in one day as long as you don't dilly dally too much and get there when the park opens.

Don't forget-- the park has Howl-O-Scream during weekend nights in October. So the days when there's HOS, expect a few more peeps
