Holiday World’s Happy Halloween weekends return for 2021
Another summer is in the rear view mirror, but that doesn’t mean the fun at Holiday World is over. The park is bringing back its happy Halloween weekends starting September 25, giving you a few more opportunities to ride your favorite roller coasters before closing them for the season.
2021 marks the return of Happy Halloween Weekends after the park decided not to host them last year due to the COVID pandemic. While COVID still has a major impact on our daily lives, the availability of vaccines this year has made the park feel a little safer to bring them back.
There is a major difference between the summer season and Happy Halloween Weekends. Splashin ‘Safari is not open. I won’t speak for you, but if the weather forces me to wear jeans and a hoodie, I don’t feel like getting wet on one of the roller coasters or water slides. It’s only summer for me, thank you very much.
Along with all of your favorite rides like the Thunderbird, Voyage, Raven, and Legend operating as they do in the summer, Happy Halloween Weekends also has several other attractions you can only experience during the special event, including the “SCAREbnb”, a family funhouse, Holidog’s 3D Halloween Adventure at the Holiday Theater, 12 acres of corn mazes and hayrides, Carnival Chaos, a series of mazes and “surprises” is for older kids and adults that includes strobe lights and occasional loud noises, Kitty’s Dance Spooktacular at the Hoosier Celebration Theater, and treats for kids 12 and under.
The growing number of COVID cases in our area has forced Holiday World to cap the number of guests in the park at some point near the end of their summer run, and that cap will continue through Happy Halloween Weekends. This means that you will not be able to buy tickets at the door. You will need to purchase them in advance through Holiday World’s “Pick Your Date” calendar. on their website.
However, you may not need to purchase tickets at all. Listen to the Q Crew Morning Show with me and Leslie every day of the week for a chance to win a pair of free passes!
Happy Halloween Weekends take place every Saturday and Sunday from September 25 to October 31. Consult the complete list of activities and schedules on the Holiday World website.
