Halloween Haunt at Kings Island

Saturday, September 20, 2014

Last night, I had the opportunity to visit Kings Island for their Halloween Haunt! This is a special time of year when the ghosts and goblins make their way into Kings Island and take over the park.

Though I'm more into the cute pumpkins and adorable Halloween decorations - I have a lot of friends and family that enjoy the more spooky side of this holiday. So, I go along and do my best not to be too scared. However I was much more scared this year than any other year.

Please note that Halloween Haunt is not intended for small children. During that time, the kids rides are closed and that area is only partial used. The part of Planet Snoopy that is used - is solely for haunted mazes.

This year, the haunted mazes have an added and terrifying feature. A Skeleton Key!

Halloween Haunt features mazes, scare zones, live shows, and monsters around every dark corner. Enter if you dare, survive if you can. Plus, scream to the front of the line and unlock five exclusive rooms using your Fright Lane featuring the all-new Skeleton Key.

The all-new Skeleton Key allows you entry into five ultra exclusive rooms.  These five rooms are more terrifying than I could have imagined and they are a fun way to start your journey through the haunted maze. 

If you really enjoy haunted houses and want to experience all of the haunted mazes during Halloween Haunt, I do suggest purchased the Fright Lane pass.  Otherwise, you likely won't have time to get through all of the mazes. 

Though we did make it through every maze - I'm there for the rides!  I love riding Diamondback and Delirium in the dark.  I especially love taking a ride on the Beast in the pitch black darkness.  There are moments when you can see absolutely nothing while furiously traveling through the wooded area that surrounds the Beast.  Much more terrifying.

If you're wanting to enjoy a more family-friendly and relaxing environment, I suggest visiting during the early hours when kid's activities are available

During the day it's all fun. No fear.

Kings Island is filled with rides, a petting zoo, costume contest, trick-or-treat stops and more. During the day it's all fun. No fear. Saturdays and Sundays, September 21 to October 26.
