Ohio couples to say, “Till death do us part!” on Friday the 13th
Cedar Point’s HalloWeekends® opens with ‘zombie wedding’
SANDUSKY, Ohio (Sept. 10, 2019) – Everlasting love and the smell of formaldehyde will be in the air as Cedar Point’s 23rd HalloWeekends rises from the grave this Friday the 13th with a zombie wedding of ghastly proportions.
Six couples, completely decked out in their finest afterlife couture, will tie the proverbial knot as friends, family and creatures of the night witness the power of their undying love. Guests are invited (no RSVP required) to watch the celebration at 6:30 p.m. in the Harvest Fear fright zone, located in front of Town Hall in Frontier Town.
HalloWeekends returns this weekend with the most Halloween in one place with six outdoor fright zones, six indoor mazes, family-friendly fun by day, thousands and thousands of pumpkins, corn stalks and fall décor, delicious fall foods and the most thrilling rides and roller coasters that only Cedar Point can scare up.
HalloWeekends starts with The Great Pumpkin Fest every Saturday & Sunday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Families can enjoy not-so-scary fall activities, attractions and live entertainment.
Kids can make their own Halloween creations, arts and crafts in the new Sally’s Craft Cabin. Also new, giant mutant spiderwebs take over the midway for kids to climb on at Snoopy’s Spiderweb Crawl.
The Cleveland Metroparks Zoo brings possums, roaches, snakes and other slithery creatures at the new Creepy Crawly Critters show. Back for another season and with a new route along the Main Midway, The Great Pumpkin Parade returns with Snoopy and the Peanuts™ pals, costumed dancers and performers and giant floats that are perfect for all ages.
Three of the park’s indoor haunted mazes become scare-free HalloTween mazes every Saturday and Sunday. The Mystery of Eerie Estate, Zombie Jr. High School and Hexed Spellbound: In The Dark are filled with surprises, games and mind-bending puzzles for those tween-aged guests who are not quite ready for the darkness of Haunt, but ready for more.
New Nighttime Terror
A new twist on a HalloWeekends outdoor attraction brings horrifying pumpkin head creatures, animals, farmers and living corn stalks to a dark and foggy cornfield at the new CornStalkers 2.0: Revenge of the Pumpkin Heads.
HalloWeekends Street Festivals
Two new nighttime “HalloZone” party areas provide immersive Halloween street festivals within the park. The Monster Mash Bash HalloZone, located along the Lakeside Midway, becomes a family-friendly party with games, interactive street entertainment and a silent spooky disco for an evening of ghoulish good fun every Friday and Saturday night from 7 to 10 p.m.
Across the park, the Boneyard Battleground HalloZone erupts into an adult-centric, post-apocalyptic after party with heavy metal, flames, music and death-defying human feats as performers battle for fuel to survive the mass destruction. Live music from the Skin & Bones Band and Raging Inferno rockers creates an epic soundtrack while the new Dead End Kitchen Alley food truck feast serves up devilishly good bites and beverages all night long.
Killer Buffets and Daytime Dining Experiences
A new addition joins the Night of the Living Fed dining experience this HalloWeekends. The new Day of the Fed offers a frightfully fun feast with festive food, games, music and more. Guests can purchase or use their dining plans to enjoy a monstrous meal of hot dogs, fried chicken, potato salad and fountain beverages. Day of the Fed is available at the Point Pavilion near Raptor on Saturdays from 12 to 6 p.m. beginning Sept. 21.
Screamsters return to host Night of the Living Fed on Saturdays with two seatings from 12 to 2 p.m. and 5 to 7 p.m. for an all-you-can eat buffet and fang-tastic fun entertainment. Space is limited and advanced online purchase is recommended.
