Since the year 2000, the Cincinnati area amusement park, Kings Island, ended its park season with Fear Fest each fall. Cedar Fair Entertainment Company (NYSE: 'FUN'), recently announced plans to upgrade King Island's 2007 Halloween festivities from Fear Fest to Halloween Haunt.
Halloween Haunt was inspired by another Cedar Fair Entertainment Company theme park, California's Knotts Berry Farm. Kings Island guests will enjoy a scarier experience than in years past, including twice as many monsters, the addition of eerie three dimensional clowns, and many frighteningly intense thrill rides and creepy new attractions.
The terrifying experience will last longer than ever in 2007 with Kings Island staying open from 7pm until 1am each Friday and Saturday from September 28 to October 30. Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday, leading up to Halloween Wednesday, are known as Bare Bones Nights at the amusement park and Kings Island will be open from 7am until midnight, Sunday, October 28th through Wednesday, October 31st.
Kings Island's top thrill rides will operate during Halloween Haunt including The Beast, Son of the Beast, Delirium, Drop Zone, Face Off, Flight of Fear, Racer, Vortex, Top Gun, and Firehawk.
Halloween Haunt will separate the theme park into Fear Zones, running from 8pm until midnight each night Kings Island is open. 'Cornstalkers' will fill the area from Rivertown to the Eiffel Tower replica as spine chilling scarecrows ward off intruders. From the Tower to Coney Mall, 'The Worksite' features abandoned wreckage and an alarming Fear Zone to visit. 'The Cemetery,' at the start of International Street, spooks guests walking around crypts and tombstones.
Mazes will be critical to providing the creepy, terrifying atmosphere at Kings Island's Halloween Haunt. The Coney Mall area, known as Coney Maul during this time of year, will feature Trail of Terror, Massacre Manor, and Death Row as their three bloodcurdling mazes. A three dimensional maze experience can be found on International Street at the Circus of Horrors. Kings Island's Action Zone includes a new nightclub themed maze in 2007 called Club Blood. The mazes will be open from 7pm until 1am each night the park is open.
A new attraction called Dead Awakening will be featured nightly at 9, 10, 11, and midnight at the Showplace Theatre. Dead Awakening is a graphic and disturbing R-rated horror and music video show targeted towards adults. The classic Rivertown train ride turns into a scary attraction as the train navigates through the fog at Tombstone Terror Tory from 8pm until 1am.
