First of all let me come out say that I LOVE HALLOWEEN! It is hands down my favorite holiday and I love everything about the holiday! So when I was asked to go to Cedar Point and review the number one Halloween Attraction in the county I of course did not hesitate! When we arrived at Cedar Point we were able to check right into our hotel right at Cedar Point- Hotel Breakers. Which is conveniently located right by the Magnum Roller Coaster and less than a two minute walk from the actual park! The hotel was decorated from top to bottom with Halloween decorations including a real live coffin at the front desk to a large spider overseeing the sitting room, and the best is the ceiling of bats!!! The hotel kept it family friendly but very very festive!
During the day we had to take a few breaks because of the weather preventing them from running the rides but that gave us extra time to really enjoy the other things the park offers that we never really get to take advantage of! I cannot say it enough about how wonderful the customer service is at Cedar Point! There was always a smiling face at all the shops or someone wiling to help if you had a question! Once the weather broke it was time for the Halloween fun to begin and I couldn't have been more excited! I am not huge on Roller Coaster because of my fear of heights so I was ready for the scarefest that awaited me! On a side note they did talk me into riding the Magnum and I was so terrified that my husband and brother found it appropriate to do imitations of what I looked like on the ride and in the pictures that they took. My husband portrayal is perfect!
I cannot say enough about the Halloweekend Attractions... from the monster parade to the actual attractions it was nonstop fun and excitement. We weren't able to find time for Eden Musse (which I was so bummed about but we just couldn't figure out where it was at.. we found it the next day right where the map said it was) or the CornStalkers as it had an hour and half wait time. There are 10 attractions at Cedar Point this year! From the 4 Haunted Houses: Club Blood- which is a vampire nightclub atmosphere and pretty scary!! Eerie Estates- which was my favorite of all the attractions and probably the scariest! Eternity Infirmary which wasn't the scariest but probably the best make up effects I've seen on characters in a long time and the last one EDEN MUSSE- which is a wax museaum with some of the characters coming to life! On the walk to these awesome houses are the outside attractions which are just scary and fun at the same time. The roads are lined with monsters jumping out from every corner... they follow you without you knowing.. they jump down from rocks and trees... they sing you lullabies...and they scare the living daylights out of you! There are six different "Scare Zones" throughout the park which include my favorite Cut Throat Cove, Blood on the Bayou, CarnEvil (If you are afraid of clowns watch out for this one!!!), Fear Faire (Midevil scariness), Screamworks, and CornStalkers. There literally is not a moment that goes by where you aren't running into another attraction! Not to mention that while this is going on the RIDES ARE STILL A ROLLING!
This was an adult weekend so we did not have any kids to take advantage of the kiddie stuff but I can say from what I saw there was plenty for the little ones to do as well!
