Amusement parks offer tons of fun anytime you get the chance to go, but adding some Halloween chills to the everyday thrills makes the experience even better.
As evidence of this, we’d like to offer up the fact that almost every major theme park throws some type of Halloween event — usually throughout the entire month of October. Though some may limit the festivities to a smattering of seasonal decorations or extra costumed characters, others go all out, building haunted houses and other “scare zones,” putting on spooky shows, and turning off the lights on some of the most popular rides.
However, if you want to skip all the cheesy parks and go for the tried-and-true events that have blown the competition out of the black lagoon year after year, then this is the list for you.
Although we’ve included some family-friendly attractions, many of the other experiences offered by the parks have suggested or required age minimums for guests (usually 12 or 13 years old). Please check specific websites for these details.
