Play All Day, Fright All Night

There's so much to do at Phantom Fall Fest! Kennywood's signature spooky-season event lets you do Halloween your way depending on the time of day. Come early for family-friendly fun, including festive food and a unique autumn atmosphere. PLUS enjoy your favorite coasters and rides during the day! Then, when the sun goes down, the Phantom takes screams to the extreme with seven haunted houses and four scare zones.

Half Fun, Half Frights

Phantom Fall Fest lets guests do Halloween their way: come early for family-friendly fun, including festive food and special autumn decorations. More rides and coasters will be open for this year’s fall event than ever before, along with Kiddieland, Thomas Town™ and other family favorites available during the day.

At 6 p.m. the fear kicks in gear! When the sun goes down, the Phantom takes screams to the extreme with seven haunted houses, four scare zones and hair-raising thrills throughout the park. If you’re up for full-on frights, then Kennywood after dark is your scream come true.

Fun for the Little Ones

During the day, the Phantom and his fearsome friends will stay away. Kiddieland and Thomas Town™ will be open for the smallest ghouls, along with other signature family rides for pint-sized thrill seekers. Plus, don't miss Kenny's Spooky Sock Hop on Saturdays and Sundays at 2:00 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. at the Kennyville Stage!

Specialty Treats

Phantom Fall Fest introduces a special, all-new fall menu! Guests can enjoy loaded corn dogs, pumpkin funnel cakes, seasonal beer, specialty cocktails, and a host of other new tasty treats around the park.


2022 Event Information

mALICE in Wonderland


mALICE in Wonderland

We’re all mad here! mALICE in Wonderland is an all-new experience coming to Phantom Fall Fest . This choose-your-own-adventure maze will take you down one of two terrifying rabbit holes, where the evil inhabitants of Wonderland will greet you. But beware of the Red Queen and her subjects – rumor has it they want you as their next victim…

This haunt requires an additional ticket for entry.



Ark in the Dark

Are you brave enough to take on Ark in the Dark? Two-by-two, we challenge you to navigate Noah's Ark - with a dark twist. It's LIGHTS OUT! You and your partner will receive only a flashlight to find your way. Beware, you never know what creatures await in the shadows.

This haunt requires an additional ticket for entry.



Villa of the Vampire

Long ago, an old and powerful vampire known as The Master came to Kennywood. Brick by brick, he built his Villa to house his children of the night. Over the years, The Master has opened up the Villa to many guests. Some have joined him, building the vampire pack stronger, while the rest have served to feed his bloodthirsty group. Will you be The Master’s next snack?



Kennyville Cemetery

Welcome to the most haunted grounds in Kennywood! At Kennyville Cemetery, the dead are rising from their graves with an unnatural hunger. These zombies are seeking fresh humans to feed on, so be sure to stay on the path and obey the rules — or you might just be their next meal.

Dark Shadows


Dark Shadows

The Shadows are everywhere. As you make your way through the pitch-black setting, you will encounter the shadows of the night. The shadows play games with your mind, lurking around every twist and turn. Don’t let them get the best of you.

Voodoo  Bayou


Voodoo Bayou

Join Swamp Canoe and Raft Excursions — S.C.A.R.E. — for an exciting excursion through the bayou! You’re not entering just any typical swampland, though — you’re entering a world filled with creatures and voodoo priestesses who conjure up the dead to prey on the living. Whatever you may fear, those who possess the power of voodoo will be sure those fears are unleashed to find you.

Shady Grove

Shady Grove Memorial Hospital has fallen on hard times, with rumors of an evil doctor running free, looking for specimens for his collection. We need your help to discover who is causing the chaos within this former place of healing. If you choose to take on the challenge, remember that your eyes are the window to your soul.
