Events: Halloween Haunt

Places like schools and businesses are breaking out the fake cobwebs and candy corn, but Kings Island is taking it to the next level with the return of their Halloween Haunt. Every Friday and Saturday night at 5 p.m. the park transforms into a collection

I personally hate haunted houses/hayrides/mazes/ships/etc., and I hate being scared. I also hate being approached by strangers in costumes. Some people are really into these things and that’s great for them because it’s almost Halloween. And places like schools and businesses are breaking out the fake cobwebs and candy corn, but Kings Island is taking it to the next level with the return of their Halloween Haunt. Every Friday and Saturday night at 5 p.m. the park transforms into a collection of freaky mazes, wooded trails and attractions crammed full of “actors” in disturbing clown outfits. There’s also a brand new indoor maze, “Urgent Scare,” where a deadly plague is spreading “by direct physical contact or by the means of non sterilized medical equipment.” Sounds fun. The park will still have food and live stage shows like Ghouls Gone Wild for those of you who don’t feel like getting attacked by one of the 400 monsters. Get details, buy tickets and find nearby bars and restaurants here.
