Something In the Air

There are only a handful of days left to visit Splashin’ Safari this season. Kids World winds down soon.

But we’re not ready to close just yet – there’s still time left to visit in 2023.

That’s right. It’s almost time for our family-friendly fall event to boo-gin. We’ve had a few days where there’s a slight chill in the air. And Holiday World is about to be transformed into the perfect place to spend a full day of Halloween fun.

Happy Halloween Weekends are back starting Saturday, September 23

If you’ve never visiting during Happy Halloween Weekends before, you might not know what to expect. Let’s break down what you can only experience during fall, when we have shorter lines, cooler temperatures, and the lowest ticket prices of the season!

Corn Mazes

We have 12 acres of corn mazes located near Thunderbird. You can access them through the German American Bank Party Plaza and have the option to walk to the mazes or take our hayride and see our decorated hay bales on the route along the way.

There are two mazes to choose from once you arrive. An easy maze featuring a pumpkin overflowing with candy that’s perfect for families with young kids. And our regular corn maze that’s much larger and has a design featuring Kitty Claws!

Our hayride and corn mazes are open from 11am to 4:30pm every Saturday and Sunday during Happy Halloween Weekends.


Another seasonal favorite during Happy Halloween Weekends: our funhouses.

Just like our corn mazes, there are two to choose from. Both located in the Christmas section of the park.

Families will love Holidog’s 3D Halloween Adventure located in the Holiday Theater. Just look for the water fountain with Christmas ornaments in it, and you’ll know you’re in the right place. Step inside with your 3D glasses and go on an adventure helping Holidog track down his Halloween candy.

If you’re brave enough, let our ghostly barker call you into an abandoned carnival. You’ll find it between Santa’s Merry Marketplace and the Star Spangled Scarousel. But watch your step. Carnival Chaos features startles, strobe lights, and occasional loud noises.

Free Trick-or-Treat Trail & Gourdon the Talking Pumpkin

Kids are free to wear their Halloween costumes during Happy Halloween Weekends, provided they follow a few simple rules. We ask that they be family-friendly (no blood, guts, gore, or revealing costumes), no masks that cover the entire face, and no weapons.

Stop by Splashin’ Safari Plaza starting at 4pm for our FREE Trick-or-Treat Trail. You can bring your own bags or buckets for candy. But if you don’t have anything, we’ve got you covered.

Near the end of the Trail, be sure to stop by and chat with Gourdon the Talking Pumpkin. He’s a big fan of naps most of the year, but at Halloween, his favorite thing to do is chat with everyone who comes to see him.

Be sure to stop by the Trick-or-Treat Trail and chat with Gourdon the Talking Pumpkin between 4 and 5pm.

Live Shows

If live entertainment is your favorite part of visiting in the fall, we’ve got you covered again this year.

Hoosier Celebration Theater is home to two shows during Happy Halloween Weekends: Kitty’s Dance Spooktacular and Halloween All-Stars. Visit on the day of your visit for show times.

And you know how we mentioned there’s been a slight chill in the air lately? That’s not the only thing you can expect if you visit on Saturdays this fall.

Think brighter. Do you have it yet? It’s our drones!

You can catch as our swarm of 400 drones return and take flight every Saturday during Happy Halloween Weekends for Halloween in the Sky! This new show is filled with tons of Halloween imagery in what we think is our best show yet.

Halloween in the Sky starts at 7:45pm on Saturdays and the best views are in the German American Bank Party Plaza.

How to Visit During Happy Halloween Weekends

If you’re planning a single-day visit this year, then our Pick Your Date Tickets always have the lowest ticket prices available. Using that calendar, you can get tickets to visit this fall for as low as $39.99.

But if you’re planning to visit next season – especially to take a ride on Good Gravy! Family Coaster – then you might consider one of our Platinum Passes. If you purchase a 2024 Platinum Season Pass that’s paid in full (not on our Easy Pay plan), then you can visit any Sunday during Happy Halloween Weekends this season for free. All our Season Passes are $45 off through October 31!

We hope to see you during Happy Halloween Weekends soon. It’s perfect for every ghoul and goblin in the family!
