HalloWeekends 2017 at Cedar Point: The Good, the Bad, and the Spooky

HalloWeekends 2017 at Cedar Point Fright Lane pass

Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio, is the roller coaster capital of the world, no disputing the fact. But, when summer’s over, the park turns into a Halloween fun spot: kid-friendly by day and hauntingly fun by night. Last weekend, we had the pleasure of checking out opening weekend for HalloWeekends 2017.

What we found was a delightful mix of family entertainment and a cast of creepers good enough to scare the pants off folks. Add those two together and it’s an ideal weekend for this family! Here’s the scoop – video style.

HalloWeekends 2017 Quick Tips

  • Friday nights are much less crowded than Saturday nights. If you like a quieter park, try to visit then.
  • When HAUNT (the spooky side of HalloWeekends) begins, if you want to avoid the scarier parts, stick to the front of the park. Translation: the Midway is still pretty friendly for kids.
  • If you can afford the upcharge, definitely purchase a Fright Lane Pass. Not only will you have access to five Skeleton Key rooms. You’ll also get to head straight to the front of the line and skip the standby queue and that’s a real time saver.
  • Cornstalkers is one of THE most popular scare zones in the park. Opening at 8pm, the lines just get longer as the night goes on. Try to get in line early to save yourself the wait.
  • Don’t want to pay for a Fright Lane pass? There’s still plenty of free Scare Zones to get your adrenaline pumping!
  • The least spooky haunted houses are at the front of the park. If you’re not sure you’ll be too scared to walk through, Hexed and Eerie Estate are two good ones to test drive.
