Congratulations to our winners: Kayla C. from Louisville, Kentucky, and Jessica H. from Vine Grove, Kentucky. Thanks to all who entered!
Certain foods just taste better in cool weather.
Our menus reflect that.
We add seasonal food items all over the park during Happy Halloween Weekends. From pumpkin funnel cakes to grilled cheese and tomato bisque; pumpkin spice lattes to fried bread pudding bites. Our online menus show all the new choices so you can figure out what you have to try.
You can even visit our Activity Trail to make your own treat. We have Cookie Decorating and Make-Your-Own-S’mores kits that you can pick up during your time in the park.
What do members of our full-time staff recommend? I sent out an email asking “what’s your favorite seasonal food item and why?” Here’s what just a few had to say.
“I look forward to anything pumpkin flavored this time of year, but I guess my favorite is the Pumpkin Spice Latte at Mrs. Klaus’ Kitchen.” -Eric, Attractions
“ALWAYS look forward to the pumpkin funnel cake. It is like having the whole season of fall on a plate.” -Vanessa, HR Trainer
“The pumpkin cheesecake fudge, because it’s rich and flavorful, soft and creamy – it’s a perfect fall confection! Plus the peppermint hot chocolate because it makes me think of colder temperatures and Christmastime, even during Halloween.” -Stephen, Communications
“Without a doubt it would be the brown sugar and cinnamon ice cream! I think about it all summer. I was so excited when it came back! I LOVE food but this is my favorite” -Angie, Guest Services
“This is a hard one! I’m going to have to go with two – I love our Chicken Enchilada Soup at the Alamo and the pumpkin funnel cake at the Funnel Cake Factory. You have to go for the sweet and the savory!” -Matt, President & CEO

My favorite time of year to go to Holiday World
I love holiday world and it would be really cool to win tickets for my kids
We LOVE Holiday World! I remember coming every year as a kid in the summer! We’d stay the night at Santa’s Lodge during each visit! The 2nd day deal was too good to pass up in a family like mine! Now, I’m grown and have a little one of my own. Holiday World is still a tradition. Each summer, one day in the park, another in the water. And when Happy Halloween weekends were introduced I was thrilled! After all, Fall is my ABSOLUTE favorite! It just never seemed to work out where I could get back in the Fall. Until, that is, that little one I mentioned earlier was born. She’ll be 5 this year. She was born a week before Halloween! We’ve been each year since she turned 1!!! It’s a perfect way to spend time celebrating her birthday while having Halloween fun! The food is always delicious but, in the fall it’s even better! The cooler weather allows for you to enjoy more of your food! Baby girls favorite is definitely the pumpkin funnel cake and the cinnamon brown sugar ice cream while we’re there. We always get the fudge and candied apples to go! We’re always already too full! And those travel the best! I enjoy the pumpkin spiced lattes! Caffeine is always a must when keeping up with her. I was thrilled when the tomato bisque returned! It’s my all-time favorite soup! It just warms you to the core! And you can never go wrong with grilled cheese for dipping! I never win anything but, what does it hurt to try? Regardless, we’ll have a blast on our visit! Smore’s, cider, and kitty claws dance party. The activity trail is perfect for little ones, we look forward to it every year… decorating cookies and playing in the corn bin are a few of favorite things! Can’t wait!!!
I love the Carmel apples!!!!
Pumpkin pie ice cream
Love holiday world!
Pumpkin Spice Latte’s!
It’s just always fun to walk around fall weather while drinking a warm Latte!
Pumpkin spice funnel cake, a la mode.
