Holiday World's First Halloween Celebration

Holiday World has successfully made it through their first run of Happy Halloween Weekends, the theme park's new family-friendly Halloween event.  The event marks the first time that the park, which contains several holiday themed areas, is celebrating the Halloween season.

In addition to almost all of the park's rides being open for guests, there's also plenty of unique Halloween themed attractions to experience.  Holidog's 3-D Halloween Adventures is a new walk through attraction in which guests help Holidog find his candy.  I know how important Halloween candy is to me, so I can certainly understand Holidog's plight.

The park has also created two corn mazes, one smaller one for little kids and an enormous one that's pretty impressive looking from the air.  There's new live entertainment, decorations throughout the park, plenty of family activities like face painting and trick-or-treating, and each Saturday night ends with a laser light show.  Sundays end with a gigantic dance party being held by Kitty Claws!

All the fun will be held at Holiday World on weekends through October 28th.

While unrelated to the park's Halloween events, this article does mention that the park will announce some new additions for 2013 in a couple weeks - though do not look for huge news.  Instead, the parks is already planning big things for 2014 and beyond, good news for us fans!
