I didn't realize they were missing this year. I only got to Fright Fest once the first week of the event. Maybe if I had gone to the park more times I would have noticed the cobwebs missing after a few visits.

I honestly didn't even realize they were gone and I went three times. That being said, I never really noticed them in past years.

I sure noticed it this year and their absence made the park seem more sparse for FF. Sadly I think the park wants less Halloween decorations up so they can more quickly convert to Christmas which they focus more effort on than for Halloween anymore.

How long has GA owned those two Hearst cars for?  Do they just sit outside in a storage lot the rest of the year?  Some the windows are missing, so I can't imagine what they are like inside with the rain getting in them.

They had them at least from 1999, and there used to be 4 of them, 3 Caddys and 1 Buick. The one Caddy is completely rusted out right under the Landau trim, it will need a whole new rear quarter panel welded in. Those old vinyl roofs are rust traps.

In my 2 visits I didn't notice them.  I did notice the lack of staff and other decorations though.

You have to be careful about garages as they can trap humidity and cause cars to rust worse than being stored outside. Especially heated garages with damp heating systems.

Another thing I miss were the hay bales and cornstalks with fancy gourds they used to have all over. Guess they have to allocate funds from FF decorating to HITP decorations. 

 

Yesterday on Nitro, I saw several webs spread out on the ground in the yard by Nitro's first drop, next to the old Pallex prop.

I didn't make it to the last few weekends of FF.  Did they have the giant pumpkin man made of hay bales this year?  That was always a long standing tradition dating back to the late '80s.

I don't remember seeing it, but I tend not to venture around much during FF. I wonder if Ignite being in that area had an effect on it.

I didn't see it. However, the only section I never went in during FF was Golden Kingdom, so it could have been over there for all I know.

I do not think the hale bale man was put up this year.
