Happy Hauntings opens to families October 7

Kennywood's first family-friendly fall festivities happening weekends throughout October



WEST MIFFLIN, PA--When the air begins to cool and the leaves start to change colors, the Phantom takes over Kennywood for his fright-filled nights. This year, have no fear! During the day, Happy Hauntings transforms Pittsburgh's best amusement park into a fall festival of fun for the entire family!

Join us on Saturdays and Sundays from 12 to 4 p.m. beginning October 7, 2017 for hay rides, pumpkin decorating, and tasty treats. Children can enjoy Kiddieland rides along with a selection of other family favorites, such as the Jack Rabbit, Auto Race, Paratrooper, and more. There's even a bite-sized maze for guests not quite ready for the mazes of Phantom Fright Nights!

"We're taking the highlights of a traditional fall festival and combining them with our classic family attractions," says Kennywood General Manager Jerome Gibas. "We hope to see Happy Hauntings become a popular tradition like Phantom Fright Night and Holiday Lights."

Kids can embark on a trick-or-treating trail through the Kennyville Cemetery, and then burn off that candy energy at Kenny Kangaroo's Sock Hop dance parties, held twice per day.

Costumes are permitted to be worn by children; however, parts of some costumes (capes and other longer acccessories) may not be worn on select rides for safety reasons. Adults are asked to please refrain from dressing up.

Tickets for Happy Hauntings can be purchased at Kennywood for $16.99. Admission is free for children ages 3 and under. Guests can also pick up coupons good for $4 off at local Spirit Halloween locations.
