Would you believe that Fright Nights is now in its seventh year? Returning are the three familiar mazes – Asylum, Hellgate and Se7en. New for this year is The Curse – telling the chilling story of a cursed ship that has recently washed up on Amity beach. Positive reviews have been inconsistent, but it is a welcome addition to the line-up. General park theming is a bit sparse this year, however Colossus and Nemesis Inferno were decorated well. The park music never fails to impress, and the lighting continues to be improved. Operationally the park has done a lot better than last year, with minimal downtime on the rides which were all running at maximum capacity.
