It's not so scary' at Holiday World's ‘Happy Halloween Weekends'

SANTA CLAUS, IN (WFIE) -

The four holiday-themed sections at Holiday World will present a single theme on Saturdays and Sundays starting this weekend, as the park premieres this year's Happy Halloween Weekends on September 21.

"Holiday World is all about family fun and making memories – even during the Halloween season," says park president Matt Eckert. "We're not about horror – we joke that the only screams will be on our roller coasters. Starting this weekend, we'll have hay rides, corn mazes, Halloween-themed shows, special activities for children, and more."

In addition to most of Holiday World's rides, the event will include:

  •  New: Mummy's Treasure Maze - a themed maze with a hieroglyphic challenge    
  •  New: Gourdon's Tales from the Patch animatronic-pumpkin show
  •  Holidog's 3D Halloween Adventure – a non-haunted house with colorful 3D features
  •  Huge corn maze – hayrides to a huge corn maze (plus a junior maze for smaller children)
  •  Graveyard Smash – today's hits, spookified by zombie singers and dancers
  •  Halloween Magic Show
  •  Kitty Claws' Dance Party
  •  Halloween Laser Light Show on Saturdays
  •  Children's Halloween activities

Visitors to the park are welcome to wear their family-friendly Halloween costumes (no masks, please).
