HalloWeekends at Cedar Point
Cedar Point's annual Halloween-themed thrill park is now open.
Cedar Point is known for making people scream - their roller coasters are the stuff of legends. But in October, the park is causing screams from other thrills as it transforms into a friendly-during-the-day, downright-scary-at-night Halloween experience.
Whether you're up for treats and fun for the little ones or a scare fit for adults, Cedar Point's HalloWeekends has both. New this year, the 19th annual HalloWeekends is taking on two separate personas.
The Great Pumpkin Fest is a daytime adventure for kids with parades, crafts, and even trick-or-treat with the Peanuts characters. There's Count Snooptacula's Kids' Costume Contest, inspired landscapes and friendly monsters to make even the littlest guests giggle. It takes place every Saturday and Sunday through November 1 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
But after dark, the park transforms into Haunt, a creepy haunted theme park complete with corn mazes, ghostly shows and scare zones. Six indoor haunted houses and six outdoor scare zones are intense experiences that include monsters, the undead, and the truly twisted. Not really into the scariest stuff? Purchase a "No Boo" necklace to keep it mildly spooky. Haunt is open to visitors every Friday and Saturday night through November 1.
Of course, rides will be open if you need to get your adrenaline pumping even more, including favorites like Top Thrill Dragster, Millennium Force, and Maverick.
