If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll probably already know I’m all about the fall & of course, Halloween!
This year, Cedar Point’s HalloWeekends ARE BACK! 🙌
They canceled last year due to the pandemic but this year, it’s back & better than ever!
If you aren’t familiar with HalloWeekends, Cedar Point keeps the park open late into fall for Halloween themed events & activities. The park itself is open which includes all the regular rides & such but they go all out with decorations (my personal favorite are all the giant skeletons in different poses), live shows, & all sorts of fun things to do.
There are two components to HalloWeekends at Cedar Point.
I’ll break it down for you since it could get tricky if you’re not familiar with it.
TRICKS AND TREATS FALL FEST – Trick & Treats Fall Fest is what you’re looking for if you have young ones in your family. This family-friendly event has not-so-scary fall activities, all the access to the regular rides, live entertainment, & so much more! This is when your kiddos can go trick-or-treating at TEN stations in the park through Kiddy Kingdom & Lakeside Midway. Children 12 & younger can even wear their costumes! Here are just some activities they have going for Fall Fest: corn and hay mazes, a challenge course, pint-sized tractor rides, the return of The Magical House on Boo Hill, a foam pit, spooky selfie stations, super-cute crafts and much more. Plus, your favorite rides will be open to deliver the thrills and chills found only at Cedar Point. Keep in mind, once the sun goes down, Haunt starts which gets a bit spookier for little ones – I’d suggest leaving the park before 8pm because that is when the walk through fright zones open up or going on a Sunday which is when there are no Haunt fright zones at all.
Trick & Treats Fall fest is open only on Saturdays & Sundays in September (opens at 11am – season pass holders get in 1 hour early.) Starting, October 8th, Fridays will be included as well.
HAUNT – This is the scary part of HalloWeekends at Cedar Point. If you have older kids that love Halloween (or are looking for a super fun date night), this is for you. Haunt is open Friday nights until the end of October (+ the weekends.) This is where you’ll find haunted houses & walk throughs. These attractions are no joke so this would not be suitable for young children (unless of course you personally believe your child can handle it.) There are 5 indoor haunted houses that open at various times each day. The indoor houses typically open earlier than the outdoor walk throughs. (Friday – 8PM, Saturday – 6PM, Sunday – 5PM.) HalloWeekends in general are extremely busy so be prepared for long lines. There are also 6 outdoor walkthroughs that open at 8PM (closed on Sunday.)
Haunt at HalloWeekends are currently open Friday nights + Saturday & Sunday. Starting in October, Thursday nights will be open as well.
Admission to HalloWeekends is included if you have a season pass. If you don’t, the cost varies depending on the day you go but ranges from $50-$65 online. Gate admission is $80. Ages 2 & under are free. Children ages 3-5 can get in free if you pre-register for a Pre-K pass. Info on that can be found here. There are also special food tasting cards & VIP experiences that can be purchased. More info on that here.
