^Outside the entrance of Storm Chaser is a big, ole circle that i can imagine of seeing the Scrambler filling in and giving the name "Twister". To me, any park that doesn't have a Scrambler got to be out of their minds! Either that or a Troika. Or be a star and get both.

Other things I would like to point out - Please either repair, restore, or replace the motor for The Flying Dutchman. That ride spins so slowly. Another thing to either repair, restore, or replace: the organ for their carousel. I feel that some of the pipes is way out of tune and I think it's turning off some of the riders instead of turning them on. Perhaps the best way of riding would be putting headphones or earplugs on.

I received an email today from Kentucky Kingdom asking me to share the Halloscream promotional poster on all my social media, so of course this was the best place to start.

I'm very excited for this event but I know it'll only continue next year if people show up and support it this year, so anyone who can please come. I loved this as a kid and I hope it's better than I remembered it.

I've only ever been in the park after dark once, which was during ERT at an ACE event, but having the majority of the park finally open to the public from 6pm until midnight to ride rides??? Excited would be an understatement!

On top of that, this has been something folks have been asking to the park about ever since the park opened in 2014, so seeing them finally get the chance to get their Halloween event back and extend operations into the Fall is fantastic! Already renewed for the specialty HalloScream season pass, and I absolutely cannot wait for this!

I too am looking forward to the return of Halloscream and how they will do with it's return. Can't wait to ride the Coasters in the dark. I will most likely go a couple of times to check out both Haunted Houses.
Let the Riding begin

I just saw this and I'm super pumped! I agree that everyone needs to come out and support this event so that they continue to expand it and continue it. It's worth it if at least for the night rides. I'll have to plan an evening for this but I am down!

I noticed there was mention of a "laBARatory" and the description sounds like they'll be serving Haunt-themed beer in the least. I don't remember there being alcohol at the park in the past. Is this a new thing for them?

There's three bars in Kentucky Kingdom, all within pretty close proximity of each other between Kentucky Flyer and T3.

There's Taco Tequila which serves tacos and has a bar within. There's Hurricane Bay Beach Club's bar, easy to spot and seats outdoors in the middle of the water park. And there's Craft Beer Garden serving an assortment of local craft beers (plus what's arguably the best food in the park). They've been there for the past couple years at least.

Also, not applicable for the rest of this year, but for anyone doing some planning, during the Fair there's like a dozen more bars including a giant craft whiskey tent.

Was there the Sunday before Labor Day and that food was outstanding (as was the beer). There's a bit of a wait for it if they get a lot of orders but well worth it!

The poster doesn't say but is this included with season passes?

Julie Johnson, Vice President of Sales and Admissions for Kentucky Kingdom, stated, “We are pleased to offer all 2019 season pass holders free admission to HalloScream. However, they will need to pay a $10 admission charge to each haunted house. For the best value, I suggest purchasing a 2020 Kentucky Kingdom season pass. They’re on sale now for the early bird price of $59.95 and they provide free admission to HalloScream 2019, one free entry to each haunted house, and, of course, the opportunity to enjoy all of Kentucky Kingdom’s rides and attractions all summer long next year.”


If you pay for a $29.95 day ticket or you upgrade to 2020 season pass, you get in each house once for free. After that, it's $10.
