Dorney Park Kicks Off Halloween Haunt and Boo! Blast Sept 19th
Although Wildwater Kingdom may be closed for the season and an autumn chill in the air but, Dorney Park has plenty of events lined up this fall to bring families together. Daytime family fun can be found at Boo!Blast, with kid friendly activities such as mask making, pumpkin painting and a petting zoo. As darkness falls, Dorney Park transforms into a horror-filled nightmare for the seventh season of Halloween HAUNT driven by SafeAuto. New for 2014, Dorney Park turns Sunday into FUNday with an Oktoberfest style All You Can Eat Meal complete with beer tasting featuring Sam Adams seasonal favorites.
On September 21 & 28, there is something for everyone at Dorney Park. In addition to Boo!Blast activities in Howl-o-Fest Cove for younger guests from Noon – 5pm, Dorney Park will host an All You Can Eat Buffet from 1:00-5:00pm of Oktoberfest favorites such as Foot Long Frankfurters and Apple Roasted Pork. Of course, an Oktoberfest celebration would not be complete without games and beer tasting! Guests will be able to purchase individual 12 oz samples or a flight of 7 oz samples of Sam Adam’s seasonal brews at the meal, including Jack-O Traveler, Samuel Adam’s Oktoberfest, Angry Orchard Hard Cider, Samuel Adam’s Boston Lager, and Blue Moon Harvest Pumpkin Ale. Sam Adam’s Pumpkin Ale will be available in bottles. Meal tickets to Oktoberfest can be purchased with park admission online for $37.99. Meal tickets are $15.99 separately or $10.99 for Season Passholders. All prices are plus tax.
Guests looking for a more haunted experience this weekend will find plenty of scares during Halloween Haunt. New for 2014, Dorney Park has expanded its Fright Lane program. Guests with a Fright Lane pass can now unlock more scares in six mazes in Skeleton Key rooms that contain more intense and interactive scares requiring a task to be completed in order to be released into the rest of the maze. Also exclusive to Fright Lane guests is access to an all new maze, BLACKOUT, where your fear of the dark is tested. Fright Lane is available online or at the park for as low as $35 per person.
Dorney Park also introduces a new maze this fall, Madame Plarr’s Chamber of Horrors Wax Museum. Guests will enter through a red carpet queue line into the museum, where the exhibits are so life-like guests may even think they are alive! The clowns of the former Psycho Circus maze have been moved to a new outdoor scare zone in CarnEvil, located in Hydra Plaza. This scare zone will also feature a new live entertainment show, Skeleton Crew. This high-energy action show debuts to park guests on Friday, September 26. These experiences are added to guest favorite attractions such as Cornstalkers, a corn maze where the scarecrows are not so friendly, and Mansion House Hotel, complete with a VIP option to dine in the haunted house, will make this year’s event larger and scarier than ever before!
With the kid-sized fun of Boo!Blast, cheers of Oktoberfest and scares of Halloween Haunt in addition to world class coasters and thrills rides, Dorney Park is the premier destination of fall family entertainment. Special for this weekend,guests who live in Lehigh, Berks, Monroe, Carbon, or Northampton counties can purchase tickets for a full day of fun at only $27.00 when they present a valid ID at the ticket window.
