SANTA CLAUS, IND—–The four holiday-themed sections at Holiday World will present a single theme on Saturdays and Sundays starting this weekend, as the park premieres this year’s Happy Halloween Weekends on September 26.

Large Pumpkins with Immelmann“Holiday World is all about family fun and making memories – even during the Halloween season,” says park president Matt Eckert. “We’re not about horror – the only screams will be on our roller coasters! Starting this weekend, we’ll have hay rides, corn mazes, Halloween-themed shows, special activities for children and more.”

In addition to Holiday World’s rides and roller coasters, the event will include:

  • Graveyard Smash – today’s hits, spookified by zombie singers and dancers
  • Halloween Magic Show with Don Baggett
  • Holidog’s 3D Halloween Adventure – a non-haunted house with colorful 3D features
  • Carnival Chaos walk-through maze with mirrors, clowns, and side-show startles
  • 12-acre corn maze – hayrides to a huge corn maze (plus a junior maze for smaller children)
  • Kitty Claws Dance Party
  • Mummy’s Treasure Maze
  • Gourdon the talking pumpkin
  • Halloween Laser Light Show on Saturdays
  • Children’s Halloween activities, including a pumpkin patch and trick or treating

Visitors to the park are welcome to wear their family-friendly Halloween costumes (no masks, please).
