Kings Island is undergoing an autumnal transformation in preparation for their inaugural family-friendly Halloween event, Tricks and Treats Fall Fest.
The festival kicks off Sept. 26 and will welcome guests on Saturdays and Sundays through Nov. 1 to celebrate the season with festive food and drink, activities and entertainment.
This year, in addition to their thrilling rides, guest of all ages can enjoy socially distanced interactive games, corn mazes, tractor rides, trick or treating, dance parties, food challenges and more. Kings Island invites fest-goers to dress up and participate in costume contests — or come as you are and have your face painted or receive a "Monster Makeover."
There will be DIY pumpkin decorating or watch as skilled artists work their magic before your eyes. There will also be plenty of live entertainment to enjoy.
Fall foodies, rejoice: This year, the park is beefing up their eats offerings to include a plethora of tasty themed bites — with options for either a "trick" or "treat" version. For example: a Latin-infused Zombie Poutine or the cheese curd and short rib-loaded French Quarter Poutine; an over-the-top Toxic Mac or traditional Fall Mac & Cheese; and the Worms in Dirt Funnel Cake or Pumpkin Spice Funnel Cake. There will also be plenty of beverages to wash it down with, for both adults and for kids. If you're feeling adventurous, get a Tasting Card and try six snack-sized versions of the 24 options.
Kings Island's annual Halloween Haunt is on hold this year due to the coronavirus pandemic, but will be back in frightful action next year.
