HalloWeekends Is BACK at Cedar Point!

Who knows what time of year it is?! TIME FOR HALLOWEEKENDS AT CEDAR POINT!
This is the time of year when it gets bit chilly, pumpkin spice everything, warm hot chocolate, and a trip to Cedar Point on the weekend is a MUST.  

Cedar Point is closed during the week this time of year. HalloWeekends will run from 6 p.m. to midnight on Friday nights, 11 a.m. to midnight on Saturdays and 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Sundays through November 1st. Tickets are as low as $38.99. All of the great and famous roller coasters are still there, but with a twist! Cedar Point totally transforms the park with hay bales, pumpkins, mums, Trick-Or-Treating, and zombies?! Yep, Zombies come out at night and stare you down! A Haunted High School you can walk through, A Giant Sleeping Ogre at the beginning of the park, and MORE! This Giant Ogre had us laughing so hard, he wakes up about every 2-3 minutes and stands up "Who Goes There" in a  scary rumbly voice! So funny to see the kiddos with this one.

Howl-O-Palooza is a kids area off to the right after you enter the park. It was so much fun for the kids, they had trick-or-treating, cornstalk maze, pony rides, tractors, pumpkin patch, hay bale maze, mask making, and a foam pit. Our 8 year olds were too tall to ride the rides in this area, but they had fun doing everything else with the Howl-O-Palooza activities! They even had different costumed people walking around for photos with the kids! Check out this Frost Bride below!

We had 8 year olds and a 18 month old with us, and it wasn't too scary for them. One of the 8 year olds even went in to the Zombie Haunted High School! I loved all the decorations! Our kids loved the whole day! We left a bit early because we had the baby with us, but we would have gladly stayed until closing!

A fun twist to family fun, head on out to Cedar Point before they close for the season. If you live too far away, don't forget about the hotels close by like Hotel Breakers! Make sure you go to C.J.s inside Cedarpoint by Frontiertown and get some Caramel Apples, and Pumpkin cookies and cupcakes!! So YUMMY!

*This was not a paid post. In exchange for being invited to events at Cedar Point, I love to review and tell everyone about how much fun the experience is! Our family loves Cedar Point and we go every year regardless.*
