HalloWeekends, Cedar Point’s annual fall family festival, makes its much-anticipated return to the park on Friday night, Sept. 17, and continues select days and nights through Halloween on Oct. 31. Along with the rides and roller coasters of Cedar Point, more than 50 HalloWeekends attractions and activities are included with park admission. New this year, guests have even more time to scream in the park with expanded day and nighttime hours in October.
Best time of the year! In my opinion, it’s a better Halloween event than Universal, Busch Gardens or any other that I’ve been to.Last edited by FloridaPointFan, Tuesday, September 14, 2021 1:20 PM
Simply based on their ability to handle large crowds in an efficient manner through the mazes, it can't even hold a candle to the Florida events.
It's a great event, absolutely. But their lack of ability to push people through attractions in comparison to an event like Halloween Horror Nights is glaring on a busy Saturday.
I've only been to KI Haunt, CP Halloweekends and Knott's Scary Farm. For me, Knott's seemed a significant step above the Ohio parks. No experience with the Florida offerings.
CP Coaster Top 10: 1. Steel Vengeance (37 rides to date) 2. Top Thrill Dragster (190 launches to date, 4 rollbacks) 3. Raptor 4. Millennium Force 5. Maverick 6. GateKeeper 7. Valravn 8. Rougarou 9. Magnum XL 200 10. Gemini
Knott's Scary Farm and Universal are simply at another level in terms of Halloween events. CP and KI are both very fun, mostly just because it's the same awesome parks, but decked out in decorations and theming, and with the additional haunt attractions. But HHN and Knott's are basically movie-set quality mazes, and they have a new maze lineup every year. As much as I enjoy CP's haunt, it's not even a comparison.

^ this. Haunt is my favorite season at Cedar Point because I get to ride my favorite coasters in the cool fall air with the pretty leaves and fun Halloween decorations. And the Frontier Trail after dark on event nights is pretty great.
But HHN is about movie-quality haunts and a whole other level of experience. The few rides they keep open during the event are just a diversion when the house lines are too long.
Do Gold Passholders get early entry on Friday?
Yes, via the main gate only.
