Welcome back to Worlds of Fun and to Halloween HAUNT

The park really shines during HAUNT and this year was no different

One BIG change this year is that HAUNT is a separate ticketed event.  The park now closes at 5pm and reopens at 6pm for HAUNT (on the weekends).  It is only open for HAUNT on Thursdays and Fridays

I have noticed that they seem to be dropping the "Halloween" part of the festival's name and just going to HAUNT (which is what we call it anyway)

In this particular update, we are going to focus on the décor of the park.  The other two updates will focus on the haunted attractions and entertainment

The logo made out of pumpkins and other fall gourds was amazing

New angry tree near Bamboozler

Some large pumpkins near Cotton Blossom

The black cat band has returned and is now on top of the Emporium

The Clown School bus has been repurposed for Zombie High.  What a great idea

There's a new light and sound show on the Africa Bridge

Really liked how the Overlord and his minions were roaming the park this year

The old Asylum Island ambulance was parked near the DINER

First - Autobahn finally received its sign.  Hooray.  Second - these decorations are really cool

The legs of the Wicked Witch are back.  They also did themed Wizard of Oz character skeletons again this year, I just didn't get a photo

Some more new decorations near Gold Rush Pizza

Still one of my favorite locations in the park

Night Rides on Zambezi Zinger?  YES PLEASE.
