Theme Parks Gear Up for Halloween 2008 TransformationsHalloween Horror Nights
This month, theme parks across the country will begin their transformation for Halloween-themed events like Six Flags’ popular Fright Fests. Typically on weekends in the month of October, parks will take on a whole new look with spooky decorations, haunted houses, fog, and strange and disturbing performers roaming around the park.

Halloween events are NOT for small children and many brand their events as PG-13. Each park and/or chain has a name for their event. Below are links to some of the most popular Halloween theme park promotions:

  1. Well I wish that the Fun Pass @ Gardens still was active, but I heard the have a good performances (I guess you can say) when it comes to their Halloween times/themes. Though I do have a season pass for K.D. I will be experiencing their Halloween theme if not once or twice…I mean a park open til Midnight??? Can't beat that. I would take video if I had a flash on the camera.
