HalloWeekends - Halloween at Cedar Point
If you want to experience the best Halloween party in the mid-west, check out HalloWeekends - the Halloween party at Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio. To me, Cedar Point is the best amusement park in the world with its collection of thrills and attractions for all ages. Where else can you find 17 world class roller coasters in one place?
Check out my other hub on the various rides and tips on Cedar Point for more information on cedar point rides and tickets.
Halloweekends at Cedar Point is a lot of fun, and there is so much to do in the park. It's the Midwest's premiere family-friendly Halloween event! Kids will find not-so-scary fun like their own fun house, shows that will induce smiles, the Monster Midway Invasion Celebration Parade and more. Adults will get the in-your-face scares they crave in three haunted houses and four haunted outdoor walk-through attractions.
For intense Halloween fun, visit four terrifying haunted walk-throughs, where gruesome Screamsters stalk the fog-shrouded midways and explore three creepy haunted houses. You can also experience live musical shows touched by the supernatural; visit attractions designed just for young children, including the Magical House on Boo Hill; see monsters and other costumed characters roaming the midways; and enjoy spooky and silly Halloween decorations.

Attractions and Shows during HalloWeekends at Cedar Point
Attractions can vary from year to year as Cedar Point park expands on popular haunts. Some of the popular attractions:
Club Blood: Head out to Club Blood and "take a bite" out of your nightlife! Dance to the fresh beats, stylish atmosphere and see the most exotic (and demented) club-goers around. Although this club is open late, some patrons refuse to leave this happening place.
Undertaker U.: This mortuary science haunted house has been one of the park's most popular attractions. Higher education was never this creepy. This semester, the U. has been given a little extra "kick" to help you ace that final exam.
Pharaoh's Secret: The cold, silent darkness of the tomb is waiting for those who dare to investigate its ancient curse. Located in the same building as the Disaster Transport roller coaster, this haunted tomb conceals a frightening pharaoh curse.
Terror Island: Inhabited by pirates and mermaids. Pirates whose ships sank under the most mysterious of circumstances come back to dwell on this hidden island beneath Millennium Force. Arrrrrrr you brave enough? Land-lubbers can walk the plank onto this newly-discovered island of pure piracy. Meet the motley crews of sunken ships from the past, left deserted on this island. But mind yer steps - they've been waitin' for rescue for over 100 years.
Cornstalkers: Cornfield guarded by mysterious scarecrows. This haunted cornfield on the Frontier Trail is filled with more than autumn vegetables.
Fright Zone: Only the bravest dare venture along this thickly fogged path where Screamsters lurk. Navigate your way through this disorienting, twisted patch of cornstalks, scarecrows and other unruly residents. Beware, there's more than just corn in this field!
CarnEvil: This circus is more fearful than fun as the clowns and sideshow freaks show their terrifying side. This sideshow has gone very, very bad. The crazy clowns and lurking sideshow freaks have picked up and moved their circus to a new spot.
Halloween for kids at Cedar Point
Family friendly Halloween attractions for kids:
Magical House on Boo Hill: Located near the Blue Streak, this family-friendly haunted house has several themed rooms to excite and delight younger guests. It's a new Boo for you! Completely re-designed for 2008, kids can step into this magical fun house filled with 7 themed rooms and fun surprises around every corner. Plus, kids will enjoy a special treat at the end.
Haybale Maze: Which way is out? Kids will have fun navigating through bales of hay in this pint-sized maze just for them.
Witches Witch Hallow: The Cedar Point witches cast spells, sing songs and delight children of all ages.
Planet Spooky: Delightful decorations make this one-of-a-kind children's area a Halloween playland - plus, you can meet Snoopy!
In addition to the haunted attractions, Halloween at Cedar Point offers a range of seasonal entertainment especially suited to Halloweekends. Spooky music plays continuously, while periodic shows such as monster parties and spooky sing-a-longs are fun options for everyone. The most popular show is the Monster Midway Invasion Celebration Parade, which features elaborately themed floats, family-friendly monsters, costumed Peanuts characters, dancing, and other fun sights as it winds along the park's midways every Saturday and Sunday, weather permitting.
