I'll summarize here what I wrote in a Yelp review....SFGAm's Fright Fest is just sad nowadays. It USED to be incredible, from the themeing to the ominous music played throughout the park. Now, there's no music, the costumed characters are sparse, and the thematic elements are far and few between. Some rides get a Halloween makeover (the indoor teacups are the highlight) but the overall spooky effect has all but disappeared in recent years. Back in the late 90's, SFGAm's Fright Fest was a solid 8/10. It's since dropped to a 4/10 and almost isn't worth your time (now that the Elvira motion simulator ride 'Superstition' is gone). Sad. Just sad. - Eric Stumpf

The park was nicely decorated when I visited, but I didn't like the fact that most of the park's haunted attractions required a separate admission. It would be nice if the park included admission to the haunts with regular park admission like most other parks do. Otherwise, it was nicely themed and great dark lighting throughout the park. - David Hahner
