So Much Fun Food!
Zombie Poutine, anyone? Pumpkin Spice Funnel Cake? When you purchase a Tricks And Treats Fall Fest Tasting Card, you can visit numerous tasting stations offering snack-sized portions of scrumptious sweets and savories—from wild to mild. Choose among a dozen Tricks (foods that might look crazy but are crazy delicious) and a dozen classic Treats (seasonal tastes we know and love). We’re brewing up tasty craft beer, ciders, and specialty potions you can order without alcohol or “bewitched” with a nip of spirits. Throughout the park you’ll also find gotta-have-it favorites and lots of goodies with a Halloween twist—all served with the highest safety standards.
So Much to See and Do!
Tricks And Treats Fall Fest offers all the playful fun of a traditional fall festival with safety and social distancing measures built in. A fang-tastic time is in store for all with fall-themed games where everyone wins, family and adults-only game shows, dance parties, corn and hay mazes, a QR quest, a challenge course, pint-sized tractor rides, super-cute crafts and much more. If that’s not AMAZING enough, take your taste buds on a wacky adventure with our Trick or Treat Bean Challenge. Will you get jelly beans that are yuck or yum? Great or gross? Plus, your favorite rides will be open to deliver the thrills and chills found only at Kings Island.
So Much Costume Fun!
We invite everyone from babies and tots to tweens and adults to wear their Halloween best and join in one of our many costume contests. Don't have a costume? Snag a Halloween-themed face mask or get a Monster Makeover with our safe and sanitary process. Decorate your own pumpkin and watch as talented pumpkin artisans decorate incredible masterpieces. Live entertainment explodes throughout the park with music, skits and shows specially designed for little ones, kids, tweens, teens and adults. Have a blast at amazing fall activities around every corner!
So Many Tricks or Treats!
Trick-or-Treat is the center of any Halloween event, and you can count on a safe experience at Kings Island. At designated Trick-or-Treating spots throughout the park, kids will receive individually packaged tasty treats with perhaps some fun tricks thrown in.
The best way to enjoy the AMAZING food during our fall festival is by purchasing a Tricks And Treats Fall Fest Tasting Card. At each tasting station you can choose a bite of a Trick (think Death Dog with jalapenos and five-alarm chili) or a Treat (think The Mummy, a hot dog wrapped in bacon, cheese and honey mustard) or both. Your Tasting Card grants you 6 tastes with two dozen options to choose from. Sip on seasonal craft beers from Warped Wing, Elysian, or Samuel Adams™. Ciders hail from MadTree, Original Sin, and Fat Head’s. Special concoctions such as Poison Bite, Green with Envy, and Pixie Potion can be ordered with or without alcohol.
Our live shows offer magical and mischievous escapes for all. Witness a Monster Mash-Up with The Shrieks Band, feast on the sounds of The Fangtastics, and boogie down at DJ Dr. Scream’s Dance Party. Littles will love “The Monsters are Coming, Charlie Brown” with the PEANUTS™ gang. Families will be spellbound by The Witch Sisters’ Spellcasting Ceremony and Dreadtime Stories. Grown-ups will die laughing at the adult-themed “You’re Too Old to Trick or Treat” game show.
Dress in your Halloween getup and compete in our Tricks And Treats Costume Contest. Head out with your smartphone on our QR Lost Candy Bag Quest. Test your mettle in our Buccaneer’s Challenge game show. Be amazed by the talent of professional artists at our Artisan Pumpkin Patch. Navigate your way out of the Howlin’ Hay Maze and Tricky Corn Maze. Little farmers will love our Harvest Tractors and mini-ninjas will have a blast on our Challenge Course. Watch out for the Witch Sisters Trickster Games with lots of tricks and few treats. If your taste buds dare, enter our Trick or Treat Bean Challenge. Want a Monster Makeover? Our airbrush artist can give you a new look.
Crafty kids can get their fill with lots of make-and-take creations—all carefully planned to minimize germ spread. They can decorate their own pumpkin (no carving and no mess, Mom!) and get inspiration by watching professional artists at our Artisan Pumpkin Patch. Imaginations can run wild as they create their own characters with hand-crafted masks. And nothing beats sitting down with crayons and markers to color fall-themed coloring sheets.
It’s game on at our Ghoulish Game Zone with a wide variety of wicked-fun games and where everyone is a winner. Try fun Halloween-themed games like Spooky Tower, Monster Muffin, Bats-ketball, Tumblin’ Pumpkins, Boo-loon Pop, and Candy Corn Ring Toss!
Plus, make sure to snag a Ghostly Grab Bag, each filled with a special Halloween surprise.
Social distancing practices and policies will be in place throughout the event. For Trick-or-Treating and our other Tricks And Treats activities, shows and attractions, social distancing and sanitation processes will be in place. Several Trick-or-Treat locations will also feature touchless candy delivery. Candy and Trick-or-Treat items will come individually packaged. In our craft areas, craft items will come individually packaged where possible.

Tricks And Treats is a special event for all ages. We anticipate that Halloween Haunt, which includes indoor haunted houses and outdoor fright zones, will return in 2021.
Throughout the day, several Tricks And Treats Costume Contests will be held at International Street Bandstand Stage throughout the day. The Costume Contest seeks to find the best dressed guests in the following categories:
- 12:30pm – Babies (3 & under)
- 2:00pm - Kids (4-9 years old)
- 3:30pm - Tweens (10-12 years old)
- 5:00pm – Families
- 6:00pm – Teens / Adults (13 +)
Please see a member of The Costume Council at the International Street Bandstand Stage stage 15 minutes prior to each category.
The Costume Council is a competitive collection of “fashionistas” who have each mastered their area of Halloween expertise. They will be hanging out at the International Street Bandstand Stage stage prior to each contest to recruit guests to join their “fashion house.” Each house will go head-to-head, and the house that wins will gain major bragging rights!
We invite all guests in (and out) of costume to join us at International Street Bandstand Stage at 7:30pm for the Costume Ball. Strut your stuff and show off at the socially-distanced dance party!
