As the leaves turn and the days shorten, a darkness begins to fall over Kennywood. The forces that power one of the world’s fiercest coasters, The Phantom’s Revenge, grow stronger. As Halloween nears, he cannot be denied: Phantom Fright Nights returns for its 15th year of frights.
Come experience the most intense spectacles of sheer terror, and Kennywood’s terrifying thrill rides. This October, face your fear.
New for Fall 2017, Kennywood introduces Happy Hauntings, a kid-friendly Halloween event! Recommended for children age 10 and younger, a festival of fun awaits guests in Kiddieland. Children can board their favorite rides, including their first ‘big-kid’ coaster, the Jack Rabbit! Plus a mystifying corn maze, pumpkin decorating, dance-offs with Kenny Kangaroo, and more!
Kennywood opens for Happy Hauntings on Saturdays and Sundays from October 7 – 29, from noon to 4 p.m. each day. Children may wear costumes for Happy Hauntings, though some accessories such as capes are not permitted to be worn on certain rides as a safety precaution.
