Halloween is fun — no matter your age. And, no, we’re not just referring to the joy of eating all the fun-sized chocolate bars from your kids’ Trick-or-Treating haul. In fact, here in Cleveland, the October holiday brings a ton of kid-friendly events that are fun for the whole family.

Thanks to its massive collection of roller coasters boasting superlatives like tallest, fastest and largest, Cedar Point is no stranger to being on the slightly scary side. During the fall, however, it’s no tricks and all treats when the park is transformed for HalloWeekends. Kids will love the Tricks and Treats Fall Fest, complete with kid-friendly shows, trick-or-treating, crafts, games, hay mazes and even a parade. Have a bigger kid who like a bit of a scare? Stay later on select weekend nights for Haunt at HalloWeekends, with immersive mazes, scare zones and other moonlight thrills for all the daredevils in your family. (Select dates through Oct. 31)
