Being a Cedar Point Blogger has it’s perks. My family and I took a trip to Cedar Point this past weekend and participated in the HalloWeekends that are going on all month through Halloweekend. Cedar Point provided my family passes to check things out and provide our view of what we experienced.
When you take the thrill of a rollercoaster and the spooky/scary from Halloween, you come up with a pretty frightful event with Cedar Point’s HalloWeekends. View Cedar Points hours as they are only open on the weekends.
It doesn’t require you to dress up to take part.
It doesn’t require you to have little kids come to your house.
When you arrive at the park, you are given information on the #HalloWeekends with a Map on where the HalloWeekends attractions are (and look for the signs). There are zones, frightful and family friendly.
I’m not into frightful and we had our kids with us (age 7 and 9).
My family enjoyed seeing the Monster Midway Invasion Celebration parade. Lots of beautifully done costumes. This happens at 5pm on Saturday and Sundays.
There are many details you might not notice. Cedar Point has many details you need to be on the look out for.
The tombstones for instance, have names of old coaster rides. I thought was totally awesome.
If you look in the background, you’ll notice an old car, lucky 13. It’s an old car they had in their scrap that they use in their display. Pretty cool huh?
There are also the semi-dead employees that are dressed as zombies. You’ll see them lurking around the park in various places. They give some pretty scary stares. They don’t touch you or your kids. And their silence is creepy too.
I did not go and tour any of the scary stuff. I didn’t go into tha Bayou. I did have some fellow blogger palss who went on it and they said it was pretty scary. People jumping out at you. More frightening the darker it gets out.
I don’t want to share much of what I was told, you really need to experience yourself. It would be like telling you the end of the story before you started reading the book.
There are many photo opportunities. You will want to have your camera or smartphone with you to capture some great photo opportunities.
For the kiddos there is an opportunity to go trick or treating (costumes optional) at the Monster’s Trick-or-Treat. You don’t need to bring a bag or anything extra to carry. Cedar Point takes care of the back and the treats. It’s an easy 8 station stop and it’s free!
Dining is also a part of the experience. Check out Boeckling’s Banquet for a hauntingly good meal.
There is live entertainment shows you will want to stop and watch too. It caught my kiddos dead in their tracks and we watched it.
I hope you will take the time and go to Cedar Point during the #Halloweekends.
