Cedar Point Halloweekends is no more — at least for this year. The coronavirus pandemic put the brakes on much of what the park had planned for the 2020 season, which also happened to be its 150th anniversary, and Halloweekends was on the chopping block.
According to the park’s website, the annual Halloween celebration, which includes The Great Pumpkin Fest and Haunt, will be back in 2021, and all of the pint-sized adrenaline junkies that brave the park this year can experience the park’s one-time only event, Tricks and Treats Fall Fest.
This all-new, one-of-a-kind family festival runs Sept. 12-Nov. 1, 2020, and features spook-tacular events and fall activities including pumpkin decorating, face painting hay mazes and trick-or-treating.
There’s even a quest full of fall puzzles riddles and challenges that will take you around the park and a chance to sample ghoulish goodies, with the purchase of a tasting card.
But that’s not all. As with the traditional Halloweekends event, the rides and coasters will be open throughout the event to entertain older kids and parents — how’s that for a Halloween scream?
The Tricks and Treats Fall Fest happens during regular 2020 park hours, which are currently 11 a.m.-8 p.m. Fridays-Sundays. Admission to the park is $47 online only and parking is $20 per vehicle.
Guests should note that face masks are required while inside the park and are available for purchase online or at select park stores. Some rides may not be operating during your visit. Advance tickets and reservations are required.
