posted by on

There’s quite a lure when it comes to haunted mazes and a spooky atmosphere – especially this time of year. If you are a fan of Halloween, then Halloween Haunt at Kings Island is an event you can’t miss. With 10 haunted mazes, three scare zones, three live shows, hundreds of evil creatures everywhere and 20 rides, the thrills and chills are endless.

Here are five reasons why experiencing a night of fright at Halloween Haunt should be added to your bucket list:

Face Your Fears

At Halloween Haunt, you have an opportunity to come face-to-face with your biggest fears. Whether you’re afraid of creepy clowns, total darkness, spiders, snakes, heights or things that go bump in the night, all you fear is here at Halloween Haunt.

Haunted Mazes

This year’s spine-tingling Halloween activities include 10 haunted indoor and outdoor mazes scattered throughout the park. Field of Screams, which debuted last year, is the largest maze. Trespassers beware in this maze! The farmers don’t take kindly to uninvited guests. Don’t get caught or you just might become a permanent part of the field.

Scare Zones, Roamers and Creepers

The streets and midways at Kings Island have been transformed and all kinds of creatures of the night are lurking in the shadows, waiting for you. Keep your eyes open at all times or you may end up being their next victim. There’s something waiting for you around every corner.


If you think riding The Beast, Banshee, Diamondback and Mystic Timbers are a thrill at night during the summer, wait until you experience these attractions and others during Halloween Haunt! The unique atmosphere of Halloween Haunt enhances the overall night ride experience. In all, 20 rides are open at Halloween Haunt. (note the rides in Planet Snoopy are not open during Halloween Haunt operating hours)
