No ghosts or monsters here! Kings Island is known for Halloween Haunt, but we also have one of the best family-friendly Halloween parties in Cincinnati. The Great Pumpkin Fest presented by The Hershey Company has activities and live shows little monsters of all ages will enjoy.

Check out just some of the spooky activities in store:


Hungry little ghouls and goblins can search for treats at candy stops located throughout the Great Pumpkin Fest. Stop by one of the houses and ring the bell. You never know who’s behind the door!

Live shows

The PEANUTS Gang invites you to their rockin’ Halloween party! Dance and sing along with the PEANUTS characters in three different shows featuring your favorite Halloween hits. Little monsters may even get a chance to jump on stage or take pictures with their favorite characters.

Linus’ Foamtastic

You’ve never seen a bathtub like this! Dive into a giant foam party with a fan blowing thousands of bubbles. Kids of all ages will love this wacky and sudsy experience!

Note: Must be under 48 inches tall.

Kid-friendly Mazes and Activities

Set off on your own adventure in three different mazes. Conquer corn, hay and everything in between as you see what’s lurking around every corner. Kids can even drive their own mini tractor, play carnival games with cool prizes and decorate their own mini pumpkin.

Note: Must be under 54 inches tall to experience Shermy’s Tractor Tour.

The Great Talking Pumpkin

It’s the Great Talking Pumpkin, Charlie Brown! Kids will love meeting and chatting with Patch, the cousin of the famous “Great Pumpkin” from the classic PEANUTS cartoon.

Got a costume you just have to show off? Strut your stuff in the costume contest! Kids can parade around The Great Pumpkin Fest then step on stage to walk the catwalk. Contest winners will receive great prizes!
