Parks at Halloween

Wednesday, September 19, 2001 10:01 AM
As we near the middle of September, many theme parks start to get ready for their Halloween Celebrations. I was wondering what was everyone's favorite park to go to for Halloween.

Mine is USF for Halloween Horror Night, I always get scared and its fun to be in the park till 2 am.

I don't really like going to parks during Halloween Celebrations, there way to crowded. But when I do go, I go to SFGAm because its only a half hour away from my house.

Believe it or not, Wyandot Lake in Columbus has an incredible collection of theming, rides and shows. I am very partial to this event since my art college did a lot of the props for the Haunted Trail.........a 20 minute walk and crawl through lots of mind boggling environments! Geauga Lake's is well done too......excuse me, SFO. I mean.....oh you get the idea!

I've only ever been to Cedar Point once during their Halloweekends, but I didn't think it was so crowded. The lines for the haunted houses were huge, true, but the rest of the lines were pretty short and that worked great for me! Seeing as Cedar Point isn't known for incredible theming, I wasn't expecting too much for their Halloween stuff, but I was blown away -- they did a superb job, and I loved it. Especially the tombstones for lost rides! It was cute, but brought back memories at the same time. I hope to go again one day!

Knott's Scary Farm!!! This is the best thing here in the Los Angeles area. SFMM's Fright Fest is pretty good too, especially the rides in the dark.

Busch Gardens Williamsburg's Howl-O-Scream ROCKS!  This is the 3rd year for the fall event and it broke October attendance records the last 2 years - they have SO much to do this year --- their rival Kings Dominion is trying an abbreviated halloween event from 7pm-12mid on fri and sat nites in October (they're usually closed by last weekend of September) -- So check it out!  Also Howl-O-Scream is premiering at Sea World San Antonio -- That should be interesting!?!?!

Knotts Halloween Haunt is the origonal Halloween event.
In the opinions of many it is still the very best.
10 mazes and 4 scare zones and 1000 monsters!!
I just don't think that any other halloween event can come close to those stats!

Last year PKD practiced with its' bonus weekends, I had no idea they closed before the season before that.

We enjoy Halloween very much, and I always thought the crowds would be smaller. Early in the year, and late, my times to go. BGW looks very promising, especially this year, with season passes for 2002, you get in free for fall, http://buschgardens.com/buschgardens/va/parkinfo/promos.html has the skinny.

The hotel industry, and parks, have already been impacted, so I would expect small crowds. I for one am "poor" anyways, so spending all my money to go to a park is nothing new. Some people are afraid to travel, afraid to spend money, or just don't feel like being amused right now. So, Halloween may be an all out ride feast.

Cedar Point has great theming...There haunted houses last year lacked, but they have a few news this year.

Wyandot lake has a really good one, too....great houses and theming, most rides are in operation, too.....I remember after the haunted house I rode the Sea Dragon like 8 times. One problem, the line for the haunted house is way to long, because they have only one major house.
