With the sweet smell of fall in the air, Kennywood transforms into a festival of fun! Pumpkins replace flowers, and cornstalks sprout up throughout the park. Young riders can enjoy Kiddieland and favorites such as the Merry-Go-Round, Auto Race, and Jack Rabbit. Plus, Thomas Town™, trick-or-treating, hayrides, and more! Enjoy traditional fun fall activities in the one-of-a-kind setting of Kennywood!
And don’t worry, the Phantom and his fearsome friends will stay away from Happy Hauntings. This event is geared for children under 10, meaning most roller coasters and thrill rides are not available. Children may dress in costumes – some costumes may not be permitted on select rides for safety purposes.
