Eek! Happy Halloween Weekends are halfway over! Boo-ginning today, you have just three more weekends to visit before we turn the lights out on another season.

You haven’t checked us out yet this fall? Here’s a list of Boos & Don’ts for your visit …

Make the most of Happy Halloween Weekends

Boo: Enjoy the extra sleep!

During Happy Halloween Weekends we open at 11am. (That’s Central time.)

Don’t: Pack the beach towel

Splashin’ Safari is closed for the season. Weather-permitting, though, Frightful Falls and Raging Rapids will be open.

Boo: Catch the shows

Enjoy our singing and dancing Halloween characters in Lights Out!, the Wild & Wacky Halloween Magic Show, and hear Gourdon’s Tales from the Patch.

Check show times right from your phone.

Let Gourdon tell you all about Holidog’s 3D Halloween Adventure. Stop by the Holiday Theater to check it out!

Don’t: Miss the magic

Magician Don Baggett is back for one last season of fun with us. Stop by Kringle’s Kreepy Kafe to catch one of his final kid-friendly shows.

Boo: Play in the corn

Ghosts less than 54 inches tall are invited to play in our huge sandbox full of corn, located right across from Plymouth Rock Cafe.

Don’t: Get lost in the corn

Explore our 12 acres of corn mazes – but fear not! If you get to feeling lost, just raise the flag at one of our “Mazed & Cornfused” stations and we’ll help you get back out again. (Check out more in-depth tips here.)

Mummy's Treasure Maze from Happy Halloween Weekends

Boo: Explore our seasonal attractions

Holidog’s 3D Halloween Adventure, Carnival Chaos, and Mummy’s Treasure Maze are only open during Happy Halloween Weekends!

Don’t: Forget about Mummy

Mummy’s Treasure Maze is in the Good Old Days Picnic Grove just past “Eagles Fright.” Look for the Mummy signs around the park to guide you!

Boo: Enjoy our dance party

Kitty Claws hosts a dance party (5pm CDT each Saturday and 4pm each Sunday) in Splashin’ Safari Plaza. Dance your tails off with Kitty and friends before taking children 12 and younger along our Trick or Treat Trail!

Don’t: Worry about food allergies

We’re part of the Teal Pumpkin Project, so children with food allergies have fun and safe options when Trick or Treating. (We also have allergen-friendly menus at Kringle’s, Plymouth Rock Café, and George’s Gluten-Free Pizza & Snacks.)

Boo: Get your picture with Holidog

… plus Kitty Claws, George the Eagle, and Safari Sam. They’re all decked out for the season in their costumes. You can catch them in the Christmas Plaza throughout the day and then in Splashin’ Safari Plaza in time for Kitty’s Dance Party (5pm CDT each Saturday and 4pm each Sunday). Please be sure to tag us on social media!
