Halloween Haunt
    Fear awaits at Kings Island’s annual Halloween Haunt, named the “Best Theme Park Halloween Event” in the country by readers of USA Today. There are seven outdoor scare zones (Coney Maul, Dance of the Macabre, International Street Fear, Rivertown Reaping, Shipwrecked, Zombie Mall and Pumpkin Eater), spine-tingling live shows and freaky haunted mazes. The attention to detail and craftsmanship throughout KI is grisly, awe inspiring and otherworldly, featuring enough thrills to strike fear into even the most hard-hearted of monster movie fanatics with indoor and outdoor themed mazes. Snaked in-between are costumed actors stalking the park grounds, and their only job is to make you scream with fright. You can also experience the park’s everyday thrill rides like The Beast, Mystic Timbers and the Vortex — one of your last times to ride the coaster before it’s gone forever. If you're not vying to get scared, KI offers a "No Boo" necklace for $13, a glowing protective charm that acts as a visual indicator to the park's actors that you don't want to be scared. Before the sun sets (noon-6 p.m.) on Saturdays, visit the family-friendly Great Pumpkin Fest or HalloTween, a slightly less scary Haunt. 
    6 p.m.-1 a.m. Fridays and Saturdays through Oct. 26. Tickets start at $33.99. Kings Island, 6300 Kings Island Drive, Mason, visitkingsisland.com.
