Top 10 Amusement Park Halloween Events

Top Halloween Amusement Park Events
It’s October. The weather’s cooler, the crowds are smaller, and when the sun goes down theme parks transform into Halloween wonderlands. Park guests are running from ghouls and hockey-masked crazies as they make their way through dark, creepy, mazes.

HauntWorld, the self-proclaimed ‘international headquarters of the haunted house and Halloween industry”, has listed their Top 10 Amusement Park Halloween Events:

1. Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Orlando, FL

2. Knott’s Scary Farm at Knott’s Berry Farm, Los Angeles, CA

3. Phantom Fright Nights at Kennywood Pittsburgh, PA

4. Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Hollywood, CA

5. Howl O Scream at Busch Gardens Africa, Tampa, FL

6. Howl O Scream at Busch Gardens Europe, Williamsburg, VA

7. Halloween Haunt at Kings Island, Cincinnati, OH

8. HalloWeekends at Cedar Point Sandusky, OH

9. Fright Fest at Six Flags Great Adventure Jackson, NJ

10. Nightfall at Old Tucson Studios Tucson, AZ

I heard of the list on The Season Pass Podcast. It’s a great theme park podcast. I’m definitely going to have to add it to my rotation. Check it out.

If you haven’t to a Halloween event in a while, trust me, they get scarier and scarier every year. Out of the top 10, I’ve only been to Busch Gardens Europe’s Howl O Scream. The park took on a whole different kind of energy. I’m not the biggest Halloween fan, but I can see why parks do these events and millions of guests visit their local parks to be scared half to death every October.
