Cedar Point Amusement Park. Our family has been going to Cedar Point for years, but had never been there during Halloweekends festivities, that run every weekend from now until Halloween.
The entire park is decked out in subtle and not so subtle Halloween decor that was very well done. There are haunted houses that are appropriate for every age level and every and every courage level.
What I liked the best is that they scare old school style. The scare level in the haunted houses for the teen/adult crowd were high, but they didn't need to rely on gore and chainsaws to pull it off. They instead relied on well designed and decorated haunts, acting and costuming to get your heart pounding. I can't even tell you about about my favorite bit of camouflage. I wouldn't want to ruin it for you.
The rides were as great as ever. The Weasels had a fun filled day at the park and I got to make a fun video to document it all. The only thing I would do differently next time would be to take two full days in the park in order to have time to see all of the haunted houses and hit a few more coasters and to stay at one of the hotels on the premises. That way I could stay with the older Weasels at the park longer while Mr. Weasel could take sleepy little Weasels off to bed when they were ready. Yeah, there was just that much to see and do.
*Weasel Family admission to the park was complimentary.
