CP HalloWeekends Trip Report! Cassy and Travis

Postby partycat » Mon Oct 26, 2015 6:29 am

Friday, October 23rd, Travis and I took a weekend trip to Cedar Point's HalloWeekends! We drive down on Friday and got there in time for them to open.
Saturday it was pretty cold and rainy in the evening but not too bad, we went to shows while it rained! :)
Sunday was BEAUTIFUL and a great last day at the park, the weather was perfect and made for some pretty pictures!
Heres some of the pictures I took while at the park, enjoy! :)

Driving into the park, you get to see all the pieces of Valravn just hanging out :)

This sign was pretty awesome, it lit up every few minutes and was by the tunnel and Millennium Force was in the background of it during the day

here you can REALLY see the difference a new paint job can do ;) looking good!

I feel the same way <3

There were pumpkins EVERYWHERE by Dragster, it was beautiful!

The vending machine promoting Valravn is amazing! You use your Instagram or Twitter and make a post using #CP2016 and then the machine gives you a hashtag to use and then the machine dispenses your prizes. Each one gives you two cards

Watched the Skeleton Crew show and the changes they made to the show were great!

This picture obviously had to be taken...

Pumpkin Dragster!

This addition was one of my favorite parts, I loved all the pumpkins!
IMG_0291.JPG
They had so many Jack-o-Lanterns, and I don't think any two had the same face!
IMG_0294.JPG
so pretty!
IMG_0303.JPG
Lots of cool pumpkin art!
IMG_0308.JPG
Pumpkin landscaping!
IMG_0328.JPG
This sign looks very familiar...
IMG_0349.JPG
The park was so pretty with all the trees changing :)
IMG_0368.JPG
This was our favorite part of "Sideshow, a Carnival of Magic" It was so creepy and also caused a new obsession with the song "Dollhouse" by Melanie Martinez <3 The whole show was pretty incredible and beautifully executed, they had elements for everyone to enjoy!
IMG_0400.JPG
Millennium Force looked beautiful <3
IMG_0405.JPG
More Pumpkins!
IMG_0414.JPG
this was a very popular area for selfies
IMG_0437.JPG
Skeleton Crew the next night we were at the very front of the stage!
IMG_0480.JPG
This guy STOLE the entire show for us, he plays the part of a psycho a *little* too well, we watched the show so many times because of him, and every time, you can feel the crowd around you becoming genuinely horrified of him
IMG_0485.JPG
He swallows a variety of swords while laughing like a maniac to the song "No More Hot Dogs" and it is just as incredible every show!
IMG_0523.jpg
Next morning we got in some early ride time on Millennium and Maverick :)
IMG_0533.JPG
Sunday the sky was BEAUTIFUL and made for some great pictures!
IMG_0536.JPG
what a great view <3
IMG_0543.JPG
Also forgot about the restraint change, so much more comfortable!
IMG_0552.JPG
You can see the painting progress on Dragster really well here :)
IMG_0569.JPG
Yay pumpkins!
IMG_0577.JPG
WOW the park looks beautiful! <3
IMG_0591.JPG
:)
IMG_0596.JPG
so pretty!
IMG_0597.JPG
got in one more show before we left, LOVED this show every time!
IMG_0604.JPG
Overall we had a great trip, really great 3 days of HalloWeekends! can't wait to come back to ride Valravn int 2016!

It's really amazing to me how much they've already put up on Valravn.

She turned me into a donkey! I got better...

Thanks for sharing - I agree the sword swallower steals the show! There are some other great acts as well - the contortionist and aerial silk acts were great too I thought. We went the weekend before and even with not-so-great weather you can still find plenty to do around the park!

I find it interesting that the Pumpkin Blaze has been re-themed to the Great Pumpkin Spectacular - I wonder if for copyright / trademark reasons or the fact that blaze has another meaning in the urban dictionary...
