The park is hosting the event weekends Sept. 28 through Oct. 28.
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 about last year's Guinness World Record for the Largest Vampire Gathering which happened at the park.
Halloween Haunt is open Fridays-Sundays Sept. 28-Oct. 28. It's open Fridays from 7 pm to midnight, 10:30 am to midnight on Saturdays, and 10:30 am to 10 pm on Sundays.
Paramounts Kings Dominion offers "scare zones." Last year's included Cleaver Brothers Carnival, Feary Tales, Ironworx, Necropolis, The Lair, Primeval: The Kuru Curse, and No Vacancy.
They also nine horrifying mazes (including "Blue Ridge Bloodbath" and "Club Blood"), and six frightening shows, including Blood Drums, The Mob, and Night Shift.
As for rides, they have 20 of them open for the event, 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 event is not intended for young children (all haunt attractions after 6 pm are rated PG-13), they do offer something new for the little ones:
Starting Sept. 29, on weekends from noon to 5 pm, they'll offer "spooktacular" pirate Snoopy-themed fun, including pumpkin painting, scavenger hunts, foam pits, adventure shows, and more.
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
Sat/Sun General admission (ages 3-61 + 48 inches or taller): $58.99
Sat/Sun Junior/Senior admission (ages 3-61 and under 48 inches OR 62+): $36.99
Friday night admission: $36.99
Friday nights w/ valid college ID: $21.99
Online Savings & Promo Codes
Here are the first deals of the season:
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 processing fee..
Starting in early September, coupons good for $20 off regular admission on weekends, and $5 off admission on Fridays start making their way through fast food restaurants, Human Resource departments, and other hot spots. Keep an eye out for them!
Buy a Gold Season Pass, Get a Visit to this year's Halloween Haunt for free!
What do gold, Halloween thrills and chills, and free parking have in common? A 2013 Kings Dominion Gold Season Pass. Buy one now and you'll get free admission and parking at the park all during 2013, plus you'll get one free visit to this year's Halloween event.
Kings Dominion says the annual pass price will go up after October 30, so this is probably the best deal around. Sure, you could get a Halloween Haunt single day ticket for $26 less (see above). But if you're even thinking of visiting the park again next year, the Gold Pass option is a much better deal!
