Now that fall is here we are getting into the Halloween spirit. Kora & Logan have picked out their costumes and we are excited to work with Cedar Point to visit and share our honest opinions about Halloweekends. They graciously provided tickets, meals, and goodie bags. Halloweekends is a fun way to enjoy the amusement park with a twist. It’s a great opportunity for kids to wear their costumes to the Cedar Point and to see the park decorated for Halloween.

Took this with my phone & used an Instagram filter. I love the added spooky effect.

There was also an animatronic gigantic ogre who nosily snored the day away but then every two minutes or so he would wake up, stand up, and give a frightenly appropriate orgre-like speech that was perfect for the Halloween theme throughout the park.

She thought it was too fast and too tall and she didn’t like the feeling of flying out of her seat. So I was surprised she wanted to ride it this year but was also glad she did.

They went to get in line and out of nowhere it started hailing!

We ran for cover under the roof of a nearby restaurant. It rained and it poured.

We headed over to watch. It was a really cute parade with the Peanuts gang, fun floats, and a very cool animatronic rock monster.

The line was a little longer than usual because the parade had just ended and the other bigger rides weren’t running yet. But it wasn’t a long wait before Kora, her cousin, Dave, and his mom were all buckled in.

The were around the track before we knew it and they were all smiles and waves from the first car!

While we would have loved to let them ride again it was getting late and the kids had school the next day. So we rode the Sky Ride out and Kora & her cousin rode Ocean Motion one last time while Logan sat it out. He decided to ride the carousel instead.
