SANDUSKY With new scary attractions, live shows and children's activities, HalloWeekends at Cedar Point will be bigger and better than ever before.
In addition to an expanded entertainment package, the Sandusky amusement park/resort's 12 th annual fall frightfest will also be extended to eight weekends, the longest haunting season in the event's history. Beginning Friday, Sept. 12, HalloWeekends will be held Friday nights, Saturdays and Sundays through Nov. 2. It will be the first time in Cedar Point's 138-year history the park will be open in November.
Each year the park strives to improve the event, and these changes have not gone unnoticed. Recently, HalloWeekends was listed as one of the Top 10 amusement park events by Hauntworld Magazine, the haunt industry's leading trade magazine. It was also named as the "Best Seasonal Event" by readers of Theme Parks Magazine for the third consecutive year.
To put all of its guests in the proper mood, the look of the park will change from spotless midways and manicured flowerbeds to friendly and frightening with an infusion of tombstones, cobwebs, skeletons, pumpkins, bales of straw and hundreds of spiders, bats and other yet-to-be- identified creatures. During HalloWeekends, guests of all ages will have a full day of fun. In addition to an unmatched collection of rides and roller coasters, HalloWeekends will have themed walk-through attractions, haunted houses, live entertainment and special attractions for young children.
