Kings Island Prepares for Halloween Haunt

Kings Island is preparing to kick off Halloween Haunt, which will feature more than “600 vile creatures lurking in the shadows searching for souls, 15 highly-intense and spine-chilling haunted attractions, and some of the most hair-raising rides on the planet.”

This year, the nightmarish madness of Halloween Haunt will feature two new mazes, Board to Death and Delta Delta Die; a new scare zone, Backwoods Bayou, and Ed Alonzo’s Psycho Circus of Magic & Mayhem, Part II show in the Kings Island Theater.


Returning mazes include CarnEvil, Club Blood, CornStalkers, Holiday Horror, Madame Fatale’s Cavern of Terror, Slaughter House, Tombstone Terror-Tory, Urgent Scare and Wolf Pack. Back by popular demand for a fifth season is Hot Blooded, a live stage show in the Showplace Theatre. Graveyard Shift in the Festhaus and Blood Drums on the International Street Bandstand also return this fall.

Rides open during the event include:

  • The Beast
  • Diamondback
  • Firehawk
  • Vortex
  • Drop Tower
  • Invertigo
  • Delirium
  • Flight Deck
  • The Racer
  • Flight of Fear
  • Adventure Express
  • Backlot Stunt Coaster
  • Monster
  • Zephyr
  • Scrambler
  • Shake, Rattle & Roll
  • Dodgem

Friday nights feature the “Wall of Monsters” when the gates to the underworld open at 6:00pm. Only the bravest of souls will make it past the vast array of vampires, werewolves, mummies, zombies, undertakers, clowns and assorted ghouls and monsters they’ll encounter on their way into the park.

On Saturdays, the park opens at 11:00am with the transformation into Halloween Haunt beginning at 5:00pm. Parents, be advised. The event includes graphic scenes, suggestive themes and intense imagery and is not recommended for children.

Kings Island’s seventh annual Halloween Haunt starts Friday and runs every Friday and Saturday night through October 26. I was at the park last October and was very impressed with the event. Check out my trip report here.
