Every weekend in October is full of spook-tacular fun to go along with the15 rollercoasters at the park. There are haunted houses, outdoor scare zones, Halloween themed shows, and a costume contest for the kids!
During the second weekend in October you can enjoy a wide selection of beers and ales at the village pubs, give your best toast during the Ode to Ale Toasting Contest, and for the little ones, they can join in a game of Topfschlagen (Hit the Pot) with villagers. This weekend is also the village’s annual Pumpkin Decorating Contest.
A street fair with 7 parades, rides, bands, the Miss Pumkin pageant, and the main event: crowning the largest pumpkin. Touted by many as "The greatest free show on Earth", the pumpkin show begins on the 3rd Wednesday of October, and lasts until that Saturday.
Located in Cincinnati Ohio, the Dent Schoolhouse has been named one of America’s scariest haunted houses, and according to them it’s based on a true story. The haunted Dent Schoolhouse was a real schoolhouse that opened in 1894, but some kids apparently disappeared...first a few, then a few more, and it kept going on until people started smelling something strange from the basement. The Dent Schoolhouse is now haunted by the children’s angered spirits, and if you’re “lucky” you’ll even see Charlie the janitor cleaning in the halls and basement.
