4 new attractions added to Kings Island's Halloween Haunt

It’s the most wonderfall time of the year, when creatures of the night come out to play at Kings Island’s Halloween Haunt.

When the event opens this Friday night, it will include four new haunted attractions.


C.H.A.O.S. Labs Inc. (Cerebral Health Association and Operational Sciences) has been hired by the federal government to develop a sedative that will allow safer space travel by humans to distant planets. The injected drug is intended to put the passengers in a stasis while they make the long journey to the far off planet. During the testing phase, one of the pipes carrying the vapor form of the drug accidentally burst open, creating a massive cloud that intoxicated the queue of participants. The drug in its vapor form is extremely aggressive, and side effects, including chaotic hallucinations, have taken over.

NEW SCARE ZONE: Pumpkin Eater

In the 1700’s, Peter Armstrong, a pumpkin farmer, hid the body of his dead wife inside his largest pumpkin and left her there to rot. Grief-stricken, he began envisioning his wife wandering around his farm, with the face of a jack-o-lantern. He made his visions a reality by murdering townsfolk and replacing their heads with jack-o-lanterns. In doing so, Peter turned into a pumpkin-like demon who, alongside his victims, now roams the woods of Rivertown for eternity.


In the 1920’s, C.J. Masterson set up his circus in the heart of Coney Mall, despite the town’s violent protests due to their fear of clowns. Eventually, the police had to forcefully remove the circus. Nobody knows for sure what happened that night, but the officers and the circus were never seen again – nothing was left behind except for a bloodied clown nose. Some swear they hear the sounds of the circus throughout the night, but it’s just a myth. Right?

NEW SHOW: Haunted Homecoming

The creatures of the night come alive in this Halloween rock-fest featuring classic songs from yesterday and today. The show can be seen in the Showplace Theatre on International Street.

The new attractions are included in the nine haunted mazes, four outdoor scare zones, three sinister shows, plus the thrill of more than 20 of your favorite rides that make up the Halloween Haunt event.

Halloween Haunt runs Friday and Saturday nights September 21 through October 27.

Which new experiences are you most excited about? All of them, of course!

Tickets for Halloween Haunt are as low as $31.99 when purchased in advance online or Kings Island’s mobile app, which Android and iPhone users can download for free. Admission to the event is free for 2018 and 2019 Gold and Platinum passholders.

Guests looking to make the most of their night at Halloween Haunt can add Fright Lane to bypass waiting in line to experience each of the nine haunted mazes once.

Parents, be advised. Halloween Haunt includes graphic scenes, suggestive themes and intense imagery and is intended for mature audiences. This event is not recommended for children.

New track part of Racer roller coaster's annual winter work

An incredible amount of care goes into the Racer each winter to keep the ride in peak operating condition. Annual work during the winter months may include replacing a number of the running rails made of flattened steel strips mounted on the wooden track, replacing support bents and ledgers, or sections of track. Some years one side of the ride may be in need of more extensive work than the other, such as this winter with the back turnaround on the north (blue trains) side retracked in December.
