Zombie High School replaces Club Blood, which was a vampire-themed indoor haunted attraction used at multiple Cedar Fair parks for years.

In total, HalloWeekends features 10 haunted attractions, including many that are returning for the 2013 season. Back for more screams are three other indoor haunted houses Eden Musee, Eternity Infirmary and G.A. Boeckling's Eerie Estate. There are also six outdoor fright zones Cut Throat Cove, Blood on the Bayou, Maniacal Mechanical Screamworks, Fear Faire, CarnEvil and CornStalkers.

This weekend only, guests who dare to venture into all four of Cedar Point's indoor attractions will have a chance to win one of 13 prize packs featuring an assortment of frightful and funny Halloween movies. Guests may pick up a "Zombie Crawl" card at Guest Services, located at the far right side of Cedar Point's main gate to participate.

If you have a youngster not quite ready for the scary stuff, HalloWeekends also offers plenty of things for kids to do -- including two new options for this year's spooky season. By the Blue Streak roller coaster, families will find the new Howl-O-Palooza children's area features a costume contest, "Peanuts" characters, a fun house and friendly costumed monsters. Near the park's midsection, guests can trick-or-treat with the animatronic prehistoric giants at Dinosaurs Alive on Adventure Island. An additional fee is required to trick-or-treat with the dinos.
