Which amusement park has the best Halloween celebration? I went to Cedar Point yesterday, and had a blast at HalloWeekends. I just got to thinking, who has the best celebration and the scary haunted houses?
I only visited 3 parks during their halloween fests (SFSTL, PKI, and CP). SFSTL had some nice docorations throughout the park but CP had them beat in that dept for sure. As far as Haunted houses go, CP has a couple but PKI has that category won hands down IMO. I can't remember names of any of the "haunts" but the one @ PKI where there was a big maze made up of chain-link fence sections was almost too much for somebody like me. (And I consider myself a semi-old hand at these things having worked/designed rooms for many when I was in the military and we were doing our yearly haunted house fundraiser.)
I dont know if anyone seen the thing of islands of adventure on the travel channel last week, but that looks like they do a lot to that park. That looks like fun. Although i have never been. As for parks i have been to, i thought Gl was pretty nice, and cedar points i remember wasnt all that great to me, do they still use disaster transport as a haunted house, cause that one sucked.
Check out GL's Haunt with the Fog. Lakecrystal is right about the rides being completely engulfed in fog. The fog helps put moisture on the rides, and they run a lot better too.. Check out the Villan at night with the fog. You think it was crazy without the fog, wait til you ride with the fog. The funny part is it runs better with the fog.
The only reason I can believe Cedar Point made that list is the number of fanpeople that have probably been there. It was amusing but awful in that Battlefield Earth or Showgirls way.
Kennywood's was the absolute best I've been to and I can't wait to go back this year, PKI runs a solid event with numerous scary, fun, and gruesome attractions and this year sounds even better, Knoebel's is a treat, and Geauga Lake's was a good start last year in their first season. I really want to do more Halloween events soon.
