The new Halloweekends 1 page brochure is available at CP. When will the website come online? http://i1207.photobucket.com/albums/bb471/joefrito/cphalloweekends.jpg

I called Cedar Point with some questions around pricing, since the website isn't up yet. They were not able to address when the website would be available.

PS - they were also not able to address questions around pricing via the phone.

The site is up now. It looks like Fear Faire is indeed gone. And the description of The Edge of Madness: LIVE! seems to imply that the live band is coming back.

Looks like a great lineup as usual! I am kind of surprised CarnEvil has made it this long without being replaced; it is almost 10 years old.

Fright Lane With Skeleton Key

Fright Lane with Skeleton Key offers priority access to six haunted attractions. The Skeleton Key, which is included with all Fright Lane passes, “unlocks” a secret extra room inside of our five haunted houses. Receive a commemorative lanyard and collectible LED skull and crossbones with purchase (while supplies last)! See the Fright Guide for more details. (Separate Cedar Point admission required.)

From: https://www.cedarpoint.com/halloweekends/experiences

Very cool!

Edit: I wonder what the sixth haunt attraction is since there are only 5 indoor mazes.

It appears that this year's HalloWeekends is sponsored (or "driven") by SafeAuto Insurance. Is this the first time that there is a sponsor for the event as a whole? I remember that Meijer sponsored the treat trails at one point.

Also, this year's Howl-O-Palooza will take place on the midway between Planet Snoopy and Kiddy Kingdom instead of by Blue Streak and the Magical House on Boo Hill.

Kind of confused - both Screamworks and Tombstone Territory are listed as walk-throughs in Frontier Town/Trail. How is that going to dovetail?? And Skeleton Key link isn't working yet - wonder how much this will set me back.

Fright Lane with Skeleton Key is using the following pricing structure, according to the website (found under Fast Lane on the tickets page):

Sepember:

  • Fridays: $55/person
  • Saturdays: $60/person
  • Sundays: $35/person

October/November:

  • Fridays: $70/person
  • Saturdays: $75/person
  • Sundays: $35/person

A couple of notes on this. Firstly, it doesn't appear to be available on Sunday, November 2nd. Secondly, if you want to get the most bang for your buck, get Fright Lane with Skeleton Key for Sunday, October 12th, which is the only Sunday during Halloweekends that the park is open until 10pm.

...and arguably the worst possible weekend to visit Cedar Point - Columbus Day. Sunday is less than Sat, but still relatively bad.

Is there a printed brochure of all the show times/places available? It's hard to read everything on the CP website. Or could someone take a pic and post it when it becomes available. Thanks in advance!

Do you think we will see a true halloweekends.com site or do you think it will just redirect to https://www.cedarpoint.com/things-to-do/halloweekends?

I know that in the past, they have put the information on the Cedar Point website in the beginning, but the real halloweekends.com gets a flashy site with bells and whistles closer to halloweends(I actually really look forward to seeing that every year.

I can understand if they don't create a separate website when all of the info is on their main page.

The leaked site found earlier this month was the "flashy" version, so there's a chance it will show up when they do the formal announcements soon. It's also possible that they decided to go with teh more traditional info on the CP website, so we will just have to wait and see I guess.

Thanks!

If I remember correctly, they waited until after Labor Day last year to publish to main halloweekends.com site.

Still no HalloWeekends dedicated site... Does HalloWeekends have a dedicated FaceBook page?


But then again, what do I know?

^ Yeah... Somehow that Facebook page screams fan-run, not official.
