Corn Mazes and Hayrides
Nothing says fall quite like corn mazes and hayrides. At Holiday World, this is no exception. With over 12 acres of corn mazes, this attraction will have your family twisting and turning as you trek through the maze, trying to find your way out. The corn maze is included in the price of admission and is always a family favorite each year.
“The Monster Mash”
“The Monster Mash” is a show your family will enjoy. With monsters dressed up and lots of fun music, this show will get your family excited and ready for Halloween. And you'll likely recognize some of the popular songs performed during “The Monster Mash.”
Carnival Chaos is an abandoned carnival that you and your family can explore if you're ready for some thrills. This event is for adults and older children since it does include some scarier moments and strobe lights.
No Halloween event would be complete without trick-or-treating. Children 12 and under are welcome to trick-or-treat in the park during the Halloween event. Halloween costumes are welcome in the park! But there are a few rules. Since Holiday World is family friendly, costumes need to be free of blood, guts, and gore. Costumes that cover the entire face are also prohibited.
The best part of Holiday World is you can celebrate your favorite holidays year-round. But there’s something special about coming during some of the most festive times of year. If you’re looking for a family-friendly Halloween event, check out the Happy Halloween Weekends.
