Is HalloWeekends For The Family?

Yes.  You can still bring the entire family to Cedar Point during HalloWeekends. As the name implies, Cedar Point is only open during the weekends for this event.

Around 8 pm the zoomies/living dead march down the midway and it’s the sign that the scary stuff will happen soon.  If your kids don’t want to be approached or scared, No Boo necklaces will need to be purchased and worn.

What Can Kids Do?

During the day, there are no zombies roaming the park (until around 8pm).  There are different mechanical ogres and beings that talk and makes noises.  They do not walk out into the crowd.mechanical orge at halloweekends

Check the schedule, but there is a parade that happens for the kids, the kids activities include trick or treating and a few on hands activities in the park for a little candy.  Kids can even dress up in costumes if they wish, but it is not required.

What my kids seemed to enjoy most was the bubbles.  We have experienced HalloWeekends for many  years and we always ended up at the bubbles more than once.

As they have gotten older, they appreciate the decorations and the scary portion of the park.

Tribute To History

Every time I go to HalloWeekends, I look to find the cemetery of the rides that are no longer in the park.

You will have to find it too and see it. Parts of some rides on display and names of rides no more.  A really cool nod to the history of rides at the park.

Depending on how you arrive to the amusement park, you may see the decorations don’t just start at the park.  The Halloween decorations are on the ride in.  And if you are staying at Hotel Breakers, it’s decorated well and a must see.
