Happy Hauntings

Happy Hauntings begins October 1!

Happy Hauntings is a spook-tacular family Halloween event you won’t want to miss out on. The park transforms into a Halloween-themed wonderland, filled with friendly ghouls, ghosts, and jack-o-lantern delights! This non-scary event is specially designed to be pleasant and enjoyable for kids, with just a friendly level of spookiness.

Laugh, scream, and cackle with over 30 of our favorite rides and attractions themed for the season! Plus, a brand NEW Halloween- themed Dive Show and nightly dance party featuring our pal Duke! Enjoy a ghoul-filled train ride through the park, fly through the air on Merlin's Mayhem, or drive down a haunted highway with Turnpike! The web of wonder is just beginning at Happy Hauntings!

Duke's Spook-tacular Bash Dance Party

Due to supply shortages the Trick-Or-Treat Trail will not be available this year, but the fun isn’t vanishing that quickly! We're bringing back a haunted favorite in a whole new way. Join us for Duke's Spook-tacular Dance party EVERY night* of Happy Hauntings in Storytime Corner at 7pm! Boogie it up with Duke each night for music, lights, and fall inspired giveaways, including some candy, each night for all children who attend. Plus with two extra weekends of Happy Hauntings this year, there is more fun than ever before!

*With the exception of Monday Oct. 10

NEW For Happy Hauntings!

We're excited to launch a brand NEW Dive Show only for Happy Hauntings! 

A group of friends have found a map that led them to an abandoned castle. The map describes of a glorious and bountiful treasure. They must figure out the clues to unlock the mysteries and follow the map to reward. But what could be lurking in the shadows...
