Please don't just reply to this like "the waits will be exactly 1 hour 30 minutes and 7 seconds". I just wanted to know generally if it is just as crowded during Halloweekends at CP or is a lot of the GP done for the summer. I will be there on the 17-19 of October for my birthday. Also on Friday what parts of the park exactly are blocked off? Also any good haunted houses, attractions worth going on? BTW I've looked on the website. I was there in May so I won't be too sad if Dragster is closed. I'll be staying at Breakers Express. Thanks for the help in advance.

Halloweekends, traditionally, are light to moderate crowds. But, as I've been saying all season crowd levels are really more of a roll of the dice this season than any other in my memory. There's really no telling. It's been a screwey season crowd wise.
On fridays nothing beyond Magnum is open and nothing beyond Millennium force is open. I don't recall if there are any midways that are actually blocked off, though.

In the past, though, selected attractions along the main midway are not open. Mantis, Blue Streak, Iron Dragon, Wildcat, Gemini and Corkscrew have all been closed at one time or another during past Halloweekends events at Cedar Point. Just check this years' flyer as to which attractions will be closed for the event. Despite closure of some of these "minor attractions," it is definitely worth a visit. I visit during Halloweekends at least once a year. The park takes on a completely different feel, and walking around in a windbreaker and long pants in the cool weather is something everybody
should experience at least once in their lifetime.
Most of Fronteirtown (Mean Streak, Mine Ride) is closed for the Halloweekends event, like MD said. Lines are long if the weather is good (i.e., not rainy; temperature doesn't seem to have anything to do with it), and the haunted houses seem to diffuse little of the crowd; expect a wait for Millennium Force just as you would during a moderately busy summer day.
