Frightfully Scary HalloWeekends at Cedar Point
Once the sun goes down, hundreds of monsters and creatures come out for Frightfully Scary HalloWeekends at Cedar Point.[slickr-flickr tag=halloweekendsfright]
We have only had a tiny taste of the Frightfully Scary part of HalloWeekends while walking back from the far side of Cedar Point with our kids. We actually walked through an outdoor walk-through fright zone. The monsters and creatures saw that we had little ones and didn’t scare us but there was plenty of scaring going on all around us. My kids liked the thick fog. We were only there for the first few minutes before they actually opened but my kids felt super brave.
Believe me, there is plenty of frightfully scary attractions for the thrill seekers! Cedar Point does an amazing job of transforming the entire park for Halloween.
