      a huge disappointing evening the money we had to pay for the addmission and express pass for 4 was almost 1000.00 includes hotel. the park was taken control over by teenagers that were completely out of control drugged out on something. the haunted houses did not compare from other years. I dont want to sound like a old person i'm in my mid-30's and know how to have fun even with the younger crowd but this will be the last year my family will attend. a complete RIP OFF THE PARK SHOULD KNOW BETTER. charging a great deal of money for Bullshit with the economy in the state it is in. the park was packed with out of control kids and the secruity just stayed their distance when a fight broke out and lasted for 10 minutes and my family had to watch. That acutally was the most entertainment of the night.

      Sorry, I went a couple years ago and had a great time so I brought some friends down this year. I was very disappointed, production seemed cheap, fewer scare zones ( no zombies walking around with chainsaws or anything scary. nothing jumping out at you in fog zones. fewer fog zones even ) even fewer rides available. could be rated for 1st graders. Will not be going back.

      Great article. I like the movie Doomsday. But I don't relate it to Halloween.
