Whether you’re afraid of the dark or love every ghoulish creature that lurks in the night – Kings Island’s Halloween Haunt must be at the top of your adventure list this season.

What’s Halloween Haunt?

Halloween Haunt is a fun and frightening evening event that features haunted mazes, outdoor scare zones, live shows, 20 rides, and more than 600 monsters lurking in the shadows along the midways.

Last year, Kings Island debuted a new maze – Blackout. Which quickly became our favorite! There’s really nothing more frightening than a completely dark maze and not knowing what’s around the corner or even beside you. This year, their new maze Field of Screams just barely outranked Blackout as our favorite experience for the night. Field of Screams is a 10,000-square foot outdoor maze experience where, unlike other mazes – you actually have to find the exit on your own.

Returning haunted attractions include: Backwoods Bayou, Blackout, Board to Death, CarnEvil, Kill Mart, Madame Fatale’s Cavern of Terror, Slaughter House, Sorority House, Urgent Scare and Wolf Pack.

Our tip for quickly maneuvering the lines: Add a Fright Lane with Skeleton Key for as low as $40, which allows you to bypass waiting in line to experience 10 of the haunted attractions. The Skeleton Key unlocks a secret extra room inside of five of the attractions: Kill Mart, Madame Fatale’s Cavern of Terror, Slaughter House, Sorority House and Urgent Scare.

In addition to the five mazes with a secret extra room, a new standalone Skeleton Key room, The Viewing, has evening services each night of Halloween Haunt. This is along the lines of an escape room experience. So if you’re up for solving a puzzle – you’ll enjoy The Viewing!

Live Entertainment

The live entertainment lineup features Blood Drums, a percussive blood bath of rhythm and music; Hot Blooded, a seductive after-life revue; and Monster Rock, which features the music of Journey, Foreigner, Bon Jovi, Aerosmith and others.

Tickets for Halloween Haunt start at $30.99 when purchased in advance online at or the Kings Island’s mobile app. Admission to the event is free for Gold and Platinum season passholders
