Very Interesting. The new maze that is replacing Eden Musee looks like kind of a Blackout sorta house. While the house replacing Eternity Infirmary looks like a freak show. Also the new scare zone is looking like a cult based scare zone, which I LOVE. Inserting though the website says the scare zone is going in Frontiertown, not Camp Snoopy. Weird cause Fear-Y Tales is getting cut. Both Terror-Tory and Cut Throat are still listed however? So I have no idea where that is going.

I find it strange that Gemini isn't listed on the rides section.

Power Tower and Rougarou are missing as well

Edit: So is Wicked Twister. Any chance what is listed is just the Friday night lineup?

A couple quick thoughts after checking out the site and what's new. First off, I'm really excited about the return of Midnight Syndicate. They were one of the highlights of HalloWeekends when they were at the park a few years ago and I can't wait to see their show this year. I'm also glad there are 3 new haunts, it'll be nice to have some brand new ones to check out. I'm going to miss the Infirmary, but hopefully the replacement will be even better.

I'm also curious where Harvest Fear will be going, it doesn't seem like there's anymore room in Frontier Town or along the Frontier Trail for another scare zone. I guess we'll just have to wait and see where it ends up.

Overall it seems like this will be a great year for HalloWeekends/Haunt, it's always such a fun time with a totally different park atmosphere. I don't want summer to end, but I'm looking forward to another great haunt season.

I wonder if they're being cautious with having staff for the Haunt hours.

It will most likely be in Frontier Town because there is still plenty of room in that area for more scare zones. Frontier Town is pretty big but also the size of a scare zone doesn't always need to be as large as they are now which can help in squeezing in another. Id look for Harvest to be in the Frontier Town area this coming Fall.

It is indeed in Frontier Town, located near Town Hall Museum and Skyhawk. There will be no scare zone in Camp Snoopy this year.


And then one day you find ten years have got behind you
No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun

Wonder if they got complaints over the scare zone in camp snoopy, was always a bummer for my kids when it change over when they were younger.

It appears the page is down again...I would guess they have someone working on it right now and that's why all the rides are not listed and such

Harvest Fear is 100% my most anticipated new experience. The idea of a twisted cult in Frontiertown sounds amazing in my opinion.

I will miss the eternity infirmary mostly because I remember it being one of the first haunted things I ever did at Halloweekends when I started going. RIP strange wheelchair and crutch walls.

So I totally missed this video. It came out almost a month ago. Someone got a sneak peek inside one of the new haunts.

I feel a few things.

1. Excited. They have completely gutted the old haunt and are trying something really new here.

2. Interested. there isn't a whole lot in the building. Now, i imagine that they are going to had walk ways and hall ways around the tent and you will eventually go inside.

Im pumped to see this thing. It seems like Cedar point is really stepping up their game when it comes to haunt.


I WANT MORE FROG HOPPPER RIGHT GOSH DERN NOW!!!

Looks like they are finally taking a page out of Universal's book where the exterior of the building isn't actually the exterior of the haunted house. By that I mean they can set the scene inside so they can control the setting more before you actually walk into the haunt. I am guessing you will enter the tent once inside the building and that is where you will begin the maze and if that the case I am really looking forward to seeing this.

If the characters are based on that 1932 movie "Freaks" it should be pretty freaky. That movie always freaked me out. Some of those characters resemble overzealous coaster enthusiasts.

I enjoyed the Netflix series (when it was on) and all of the sideshow stuff as a kid so maybe I'll check this out at least once.
