Fall events are back select nights beginning September 25 through October 31 

Kings Dominion’s Halloween Haunt makes its return beginning this Saturday, September 25. The Great Pumpkin Fest also returns on September 25 with family-friendly daytime Halloween fun in Planet Snoopy. 

The amusement park’s Halloween Haunt event turns 20 this year and features five mazes, four scare zones and lots of new live shows, along with hundreds of monsters roaming the midways. During the nighttime event, guests can also get their adrenaline fix on more than 20 rides, including Twisted Timbers, Intimidator™ 305 and Dominator, as fog and darkness blanket the park. Whether you’ve visited each of the past 20 years or this is your first time, you’ll sleep with the lights on after surviving this year’s Halloween Haunt. 

Every corner is cursed afresh with haunted houses, terrifying scare mazes, live entertainment and hundreds of monsters who are waiting to show you a frightfully good time. “Halloween Haunt: 20 Years of Fear” highlights a new terrifying maze, an all-new scare zone and shocking new shows, including: 

  • NEW MAZE: GrimmWoods Welcome to our Haunted Trail, where classic fairy tales leap off the page and lunge at your throat. Experience three terror-filled stories, straight from the twisted minds of the Brothers Grimm. Over the river and through the woods, we hope you make it out alive. 
  • NEW SCARE ZONE: Uprising The Doswell Survivors Society is here to help. Located in a remote area of Safari Village, we hold a safe haven from the Zombie hoard. Proceed with caution as the blood-thirsty undead are seeking their next meal. Will their uprising be your downfall? 
  • NEW SHOW: Riff Raff 

Everything old is new again. Riff Raff is taking the wasteland by storm and filling the Blood Yard with the 80s rock sounds you know and love. From fan favorites to classics with a twist, this hair is here to scare. 

  • NEW SHOW: The Ruckus 

In the Blood Yard at the end of the world, watch our band of survivors dance for their lives. Featuring some of the best music of the Before Times, including Pvris, Noga Erez, Billie Eilish and more. May they all rest in peace. 

  • NEW SHOW: Burnette the Barker 

Burnette the Barker was known worldwide for his antics and his famous accordion until he was exiled for acts too heinous to mention. His return has been much anticipated, and your undivided attention is requested. Step right up and enjoy Burnette the Barker for a killing good time. 

  • NEW SHOW: Black Widow Burlesque 

Our next performance is making its Cleaver Brothers debut. The Black Widow Burlesque will captivate and intrigue you with skill and beauty unmatched. Enjoy with caution because these performers cast a wide web, and these spiders DO bite. 

  • NEW SHOW: Big Top Band 

After the night’s festivities have been set up, and the Scariest Show on Earth is ready to roll, the carnies are ready to relax. Join our band as they entertain you with carnival classics. Listeners beware, as years on the road have left this group of musicians ill-adjusted. 

Fright Lane, which gives guests front-of-the-line access to mazes, can be purchased online.
