I can't seem to find much info on this event. I know they have haunted car ride and train ride. Do they have any haunted houses or anything? Anyone ever been to it?

They have Fandango and a few other rides open. They also have they phoenix going, but it is in complete darkness.
its all downhill from here.

As well, just down the road in Elysburg the fired department has a haunted house set up. The event at the park is very limited, but in past years was a fundraiser for local fire departments and very light on crowds. There is supposed to be a flyer on the Knoebels news page, but for some reason this has not been loading correctly.

Each year it keeps expanding. Last year, they had both Phoenix and Twister open. The antique cars operated as a haunted ride, the train had some scenes set up along the route, but it wasn't very scary. One of the ops said they wanted to make that more of a family friendly ride. Fandango was open, and they also had the Moonbounce and a little hay bale maze set up in the open area in front of Phoenix for the kids.
I know the mini golf will be open, as well as the games next to the Phoenix Food Court. And I thought I saw somewhere that Paratrooper will be running.

You can always head up to Dorney the night before .. they put on a good Show!
No I don't have a kid, but I still want to ride!

Hmmm....Dorney or Knoebels? Dorney or Knoebels?

Last year I think everything was $2.50 per ride, or 5 tickets for $10. That's quite an increase in price for everything except the coasters.

That's because Hallo-Fun is a fundraiser for the local fire department. The park receives no profits.

I know that. I wasn't complaining, I was pointing out the price for any non-local people who were planning to go.

It also makes it much easier to just hand over one ticket per ride than to have people trying to count out tickets in 50, 20, and 10 cent increments.
