Kings Island Tricks and Treats Fall Fest

With five weekends remaining of Tricks and Treats Fall Fest, Kings Island has ramped up their fall cuisine, Halloween shows, main stage costume contest and trick or treat trail. Skip the haunt on Sundays as the spooky actors rest up for the following weekend, allowing a scare-free day for our younger goblins.

Presented by Hershey’s and Kroger, candy and treats are plentiful at Tricks and Treats Fall Fest.


Chef James has curated 24 snack size tasting locations to add onto your day’s admission. Not your thing? Skip the tasting card and head straight for the deep fried cookie dough across from the train station. Delicious oatmeal raisin dough is deep fried and sugared, the perfect treat for parents and raisin loving kids.


Trick or Treating

Trick or treat stations encourage the kiddos to dress up in their costumes as they follow the map around the park collecting candy and treats.  Several stations fill bags with candy, stickers, tattoos, vampire teeth and even a pumpkin! Find pumpkin row nearby Backlot Stunt Coaster for fun, colorful photo ops and to snag your mini pumpkin. Bags provided by the park.


Your kiddo’s favorite rides are still in operation as October brings us prime riding weather. Pass holders may arrive 30 minutes early (10:30a) to hop on the Great Pumpkin Coaster or be one of the first in line for Flying Ace Aerial Chase, Surf Dog or Woodstock Express opening at 11 am.


Trick or treating begins at 11a-6p on Saturday and Sunday.



Take a break at one of the many shows throughout the park. Witches bring laughter as they try out a spooky recipe, peanuts characters giggle away monsters and seven houses peruse the crowd at the main stage looking for costume wearers. Every hour, bring your kiddo down to the Eiffel Tower for a fun stage appearance. Each child receives a souvenir button for strutting their costume on stage; work on those poses now!

Haunt Weekends

Haunt weekends begin on Fridays with the super scary trails and haunted houses for the older teens. Tricks and Treats Fall Fest opens Saturdays and Sundays, make sure you’re out by 6 on Saturday before the actors come out to scare. For the kids that might be ready for a little more than the Fall Fest, “No Scare” glow necklaces are available for $17.

Sunday is the best day for our toddlers and elementary age kids as the scaries stay away. HallowTween begins in the evening with early tween age activities and trails; less than the full blown Haunt but more than Tricks and Treats Fall Fest. Kings Island has every age covered for fun this fall! Halloween Haunt, Friday and Saturday 6 pm-midnight
