More than a dozen Halloween Haunt promo codes are HERE! See below...
The park is hosting the event weekends Sept. 30 through Oct. 30.
Along with Busch Gardens Williamsburg's Howl-O-Scream, this is the pre-eminent haunted fall experience for those who love their thrills to have chills attached! In addition to experiencing the park's great coasters and rides, you can enjoy nine frightfully difficult mazes, six scare zones, five hauntingly good shows, and the park's usuall restaurants and shops.
Keep in mind that the scares are adult-oriented, and not appropriate for little kids in the evenings.
I'll give you details below, as well as promo codes as soon as they become available so you can save money on tickets.
In addition to the usual thrills from its many coasters and rides, get scared silly by haunted houses and sights sure to put a chill up your spine.
Speaking of chills, here's a YouTube video from Coaster Studios about last year's opening night at the park. (See the video below.)
The haunted portion of the park is open Fridays-Sundays Sept. 30-Oct. 30. It's open Fridays from 7 pm to midnight, 10:30 am to midnight on Saturdays (Haunt attractions begin at 7 pm), and noon to 10 pm on Sundays (Haunt attractions begin between 6 pm and 7 pm).
Kings Dominion offers "scare zones." This year's zones include Cleaver Brothers Carnival, Feary Tales, Ironworx, Necropolis, Primeval: The Kuru Curse, and The Lair. They also offer live shows such as Blood Drums, Haunted House 3D, and Overlord's Resurrection, plus two new shows for 2014: Eternal Jamnation and Skeleton Crew.
This year's nine horrifying mazes include Cornstalkers, Zombie High, Blue Ridge Bloodbath, No Vacancy, Club Blood, Doll Factory, Maze of Madness, Slaughterhouse, and Outbreak.
As for rides, they should have about 20 open for the event (considerably more than last year!), some from the regular season (like Drop Tower and Intimidator) and Halloween-themed ones like Beserker and The Crypt.
Although the park makes it clear that the evening events are NOT intended for kids under 13, (all haunt attractions after 7 pm are rated PG-13), they do offer a special Hallowee treat for the little ones:
On weekends from noon to 5 or 6 pm, Halloween Haunt offers "spooktacular" "Planet Spooky" Snoopy-themed fun, including pumpkin painting, scavenger hunts, foam pits, adventure shows, and more. For an extra $5 per person, you can take advantage of the "Trick or Treat with the Dinosaurs" event in the "Dinosaurs Alive!" exhibit at the park
So how much will tickets cost you?
As with many things in life, it pays to plan ahead, so I don't recommend buying tickets at the gate (see below for money-saving alternatives). But if you DO insist on buying them at the gate, here's what you'll pay:
At the Gate Prices - Avoid these!
Adult admission (48" and under or 62 and above - not recommended for ages 13 and under): $66
Jr./Sr admission: $45
Online Discount Prices - Save $11-$36!
Save when you purchase tickets online in advance:
Good any Day Single Admission - $55 (only choose this option if you want to buy in advance but don't know for sure what day of the week you'll visit)
Saturday/Sunday all-day admission - $50 for adults, $45 for jr/seniors any Saturday or Sunday
Weekday admission (Friday evenings) - $40
After 4 pm admission - Visit after 4 pm any Fri/Sat/Sundays and you'll pay just $40
Group Discount - Pay just $37 per person for a group of 15-99 people; one free ticket for every 15 people.
Note for online sales: The bad news is that ordering tickets online gives you a $5 processing fee. The good news is that you can order as many tickets as you want and you'll pay just one $5.99 processing fee. The best news? You may be able to get a better deal by looking below...
And if you absolutely hate lines...
If you don't mind paying extra to skip lines, buy a Fright Line Pass ($48 extra) or Fright Line Pass Plus ($63 extra).
Halloween Haunt Bring-A-Friend Days!
Bring a Friend Days - Sept. 30-Oct. 2 - Passholders can bring a friend for $19.99 each (limited to 6 tickets per pass holder per day)
Everyday Bring A Friend Deal - Bring a friend any operating day (Fri/Sat/Sun) during Halloween Haunt for $27 (limited to 6 tickets per pass holder per day)
Virginia Parks & Rec Fall Fun Days - Pay just $37-$39 (depending on which branch you go to). Go to your local county site (assuming you live in central/southeastern VA) and they'll probably offer these discount tickets. Be aware there may be a processing fee, so check your county's parks and rec center for details.
Homeschool day? Last year, they held a homeschool day the second week in October, featuring discount tickets. No word if they'll offer it again this year. You could try calling 804-876-5000 ext 4949 to check.
Coupons good for $20 off regular admission on weekends, and $8 off admission on Fridays usually start making their way through fast food restaurants, Human Resource departments, and other hot spots starting in Sept. Keep in mind that using the online coupon codes above will almost always save you more.
