Went for fright fest. Lines forever, heard it isn't as bad in the summer. You can get a fast pass for another $30, $40, or $60, depending on level (on top of park fee and parking). Caveat: not a fan of any amusement park.

Yes, they do allow you to ride bare footed. You'll be able to leave them in cubbies for each ride and get them back at the end.

If you hop on Elitches website they have each area of the park broken into different sections and there are photos of the rides there.
