Halloween Haunt strikes terror in Ohio beginning September 25
Experience evil incarnate for yourself, with haunted mazes and vile creatures, at one of the largest, most terrifying Halloween events in Ohio, Halloween Haunt at Kings Island.

Halloween Haunt will start September 25 and run every Friday and Saturday night through October 31.

A veritable playground of terror, Halloween Haunt features 11 haunted mazes, four outdoor scare zones, three live shows and more than 600 monsters lurking in the shadows along the midways, plus 20 rides including the Banshee, Beast and Diamondback roller coasters.

New this year is Blackout, an eerie dark indoor maze experience. Screams of pure panic will pierce the night as visitors become lost within the darkness and the level of fear is amplified as they become aware they are being followed by ghouls and whispered at.

Popular returning mazes include: Board to Death, CarnEvil, Cornstalkers, Delta Delta Die, Kill Mart, Madame Fatale’s Cavern of Terror, Slaughter House, Tombstone Terror-Tory, Urgent Scare and Wolf Pack.

“Blood Drums,” a percussive blood bath of rhythm and music, and “Hot Blooded,” a seductive after-life music revue, return for their fourth and sixth seasons, respectively. A new show, “Monster Rock” featuring the music of Journey, Foreigner, Bon Jovi, Aerosmith and more, rounds out the live entertainment lineup.

Halloween Haunt is a seven-hour experience from 6:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m., making it one of the longest and most intense horror nights in the country.

Tickets for Halloween Haunt are as low as $29.99 when purchased in advance online at or the park’s mobile app, which iPhone and Android users can download for free.

Visitors looking to make the most of their night can add Fright Lane with Skeleton Key for as low as $40, which allows them to bypass waiting in line to experience each of the 11 haunted mazes. The Skeleton Key unlocks a secret extra room inside of five mazes: Delta Delta Die, Kill Mart, Madame Fatale’s Cavern of Terror, Slaughter House and Urgent Scare.

Parents, be advised. Halloween Haunt includes graphic scenes, suggestive themes and intense imagery and is intended for mature audiences; not recommended for children. For more information about Halloween Haunt including the full list of haunted attractions, shows, rides, photos and more, log onto

MASON, Ohio – It has stood as a majestic symbol for 43 years; almost as if it were the caretaker of Kings Island.

That description could only fit the Eiffel Tower, the massive 314-foot replica of the original Eiffel Tower in Paris, France.

Guarding the end of International Street at the 364-acre amusement and waterpark, the 450-ton structure has certainly been the dominating landmark at Kings Island and Warren County area, and it was planned to fit that role.

The design and steel fabrication for the Eiffel Tower was done by Intamin AG of Zurich, Switzerland. The attraction was erected in just over 30 days by Southern Ohio Fabricators, Inc., after the steel arrived on park property in the spring of 1971. Installation and equipment costs for the tower exceed $1 million, making it the second-most expensive attraction at Kings Island behind the Enchanted Voyage for the park’s debut season in 1972. There are 15,000 bolts holding the structure firm.

The Eiffel Tower is a one-third scale replica of the pride of Paris and one of the most photographed attractions in the amusement and theme park industry. On a clear day, park visitors can see 18 miles out into the region from the 275-foot and 265-foot high observation platforms.

More than 38 million guests have ridden one of two elevators to the top of the Eiffel Tower for a birds-eye view of the park since 1972. Guests are welcome to stay for however long they would like before returning to the ground.
