Cedar Point’s 2019 HalloWeekends event gets started on Friday the 13th with a ghoulish wedding ceremony.

Cedar Point guests are invited (no RSVP required) to watch the HalloWeekends wedding celebration at 6:30 p.m. on Sept. 13, 2019, in the Harvest Fear fright zone, located in front of Town Hall in Frontier Town.

HalloWeekends returns this weekend through October 27 with six outdoor fright zones, six indoor mazes, family-friendly daytime activities, and Cedar Point’s famous roller coasters.

HalloWeekends starts with The Great Pumpkin Fest every Saturday & Sunday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.. Families can enjoy not-so-scary fall activities, attractions and live entertainment.

Kids can make their own Halloween creations, arts and crafts in the new Sally’s Craft Cabin. Also new, giant mutant spiderwebs take over the midway for kids to climb on at Snoopy’s Spiderweb Crawl.

The Cleveland Metroparks Zoo brings possums, roaches, snakes and other slithery creatures at the new Creepy Crawly Critters show. Back for another season and with a new route along the Main Midway, The Great Pumpkin Parade returns with Snoopy and the Peanuts pals, costumed dancers and performers, and giant floats.

Three of the park’s indoor haunted mazes become scare-free HalloTween mazes every Saturday and Sunday. The Mystery of Eerie Estate, Zombie Jr. High School and Hexed Spellbound: In The Dark are filled with surprises, games and mind-bending puzzles for those tween-aged guests who are not quite ready for the darkness of Haunt, but ready for more.

At night, the new CornStalkers 2.0: Revenge of the Pumpkin Heads outdoor attraction brings pumpkin head creatures, animals, farmers and living corn stalks to life in a dark and foggy cornfield.

Two new nighttime “HalloZone” party areas provide immersive Halloween street festivals within the park. The Monster Mash Bash HalloZone, located along the Lakeside Midway, becomes a family-friendly party with games, interactive street entertainment and a silent spooky disco every Friday and Saturday night from 7 to 10 p.m.

Across the park, the Boneyard Battleground HalloZone erupts into an adult-centric, post-apocalyptic after party with heavy metal, flames, music and death-defying human feats as performers battle for fuel to survive the mass destruction. Live music from the Skin & Bones Band and Raging Inferno rockers creates an epic soundtrack while the new Dead End Kitchen Alley food truck feast serves up bites and beverages all night long.

A new addition joins the Night of the Living Fed dining experience this HalloWeekends. The new Day of the Fed offers festive food, games, music and more. Guests can purchase or use their dining plans to enjoy a meal of hot dogs, fried chicken, potato salad and fountain beverages. Day of the Fed is available at the Point Pavilion near Raptor on Saturdays from 12 to 6 p.m. beginning Sept. 21.

Screamsters return to host Night of the Living Fed on Saturdays with two seatings from 12 to 2 p.m. and 5 to 7 p.m. for an all-you-can eat buffet and entertainment. Space is limited and advanced online purchase is recommended.

The new $99 Gold Pass is now available and includes free parking and unlimited visits to HalloWeekends in 2019. It also includes unlimited visits to Cedar Point and Cedar Point Shores Waterpark, plus HalloWeekends during the 150th anniversary celebration in 2020. The Gold Pass can be purchased online or at park admission windows.

HalloWeekends runs at Cedar Point every Friday night, Saturday and Sunday, from Sept. 13 through Oct. 27. For more information, visit halloweekends.com and watch these thrilling videos of other Cedar Point attractions:
