Halloween Haunt 2011's Bloody Details
BoddaH1994 posted a topic in Kings Island Central NewsroomHalloween Haunt is back and bloodier than ever! With two new mazes and the return of some of the most savagely popular attractions that pleased thousands of victims last year, Kings Island is certain to make some of your worst nightmares come to life! New for 2011! Mysteria will bring you to a new dimension where nothing is as it appears. You may enter this new indoor maze but be warned – you are entering on your own peril. The holidays will be experienced in an all-new way as Holiday Horror makes its debut at Halloween Haunt in 2011. Located in Planet Snoopy, Holiday Horror will turn all of your favorite holidays into horrific and terrifying scenes. Returning this year for a second encore is Hot Blooded, a wildly popular live show that has created a cult following in its tenure. Produced in-house, Hot Blooded is regarded as one of the best shows that Kings Island has ever presented. Follow a young couple as they stumble across a vampire’s lair with no escape. Love, lust, betrayal, and revenge are experienced in this soon-to-be-classic musical revue. Who’s ready to see a midget bleed?!? The Half Pint Brawlers are back for more abuse and this time there’s no stopping our little friends! Coming off of an overwhelmingly popular debut last year, everyone’s favorite “midgets” (please don’t call them “little people!”) will be making their return and will shed some real blood, much to the delight of their long-legged audience! Does waiting in line just kill you? You can survive Halloween Haunt in a brand new way with the debut of the Fright Lane at Haunt in 2011. Priced as low as twenty dollars when you buy five or more, a Fright Lane pass will let you skip the line and be amongst the first to reach the chopping block at all of Haunt’s horrific attractions! The Fright Lane pass allows you to bypass the line one time each at all of Haunt’s attractions. If all of this talk about blood, guts and midgets is making you hungry then make sure you check out Halloween Haunt’s Fright Feast. Details have yet to be released about this bloody buffet, but it has proven to be a popular last meal amongst Haunt’s victims in past years. If being scared to death isn’t your idea of a good way to spend your free time, Kings Island will offer two different family-friendly activities during the day. New this year in the Dinosaurs Alive! area of the park, “Trick or Treat With the Dinosaurs” will delight youngsters as they collect goodies from some of their favorite extinct friends. An upcharge will be associated with this activity. Making its return, Howl-o-Fest will complement Kings Island’s award winning kids’ area with special activities for kids in this family-friendly Halloween experience. Do you LOVE Kings Island? Why not come back next year too? Season passes are now on sale for 2012 at the lowest price of the year! You can purchase your new pass or renew your pass online or at the park.

Tips for guests going to a haunted event.
Haunt_Mouse posted a topic in Kings IslandTips for guests coming to a Haunted Event. 1. All parents please read the warnings displayed about the age limitations. If you don't want your child scared then simply don't bring them. Remember you paid for them to get scared. 2. Making fun of actors or attempting to break their character is neither witty nor amusing. 3. Do not touch the actors. Do not hit the actors. Do not kick, push, bite, slap, scratch or otherwise assault actors. The same goes for mannequins, which could be an actor pretending to be fake. Some actors can touch back if you touch them. Pretty sure you will not enjoy being grabbed by a monster before being thrown out of the event. 4. Do not force your companions to stay if they are frightened or in a bad mood. This just ruins the whole night. 5. Asking an actor to not scare you will often not work. In fact, it will only encourage them to scare you more. If you are truly frightened, chicken out. Usually after the actors are satisfied with their scare they will find new prey. 6. Do not try to scare the actors. This will almost certainly not work, and you'll look like a prat. Plus its not your job to do so. Also do not try to scare other guests as this could cause problems that no one wants. 7. Searching for actors waiting to scare you ruins the scare for everyone else. Do not do this. 8. Stating that you aren't frightened indicates to the actors that you are. Remember there are different types of fear, and being bold in a situation is only a level of your fear. It is an actors job to notice the fear in someone and increase its effect. 9. If you see an actor peeking out from behind a curtain, or standing in the middle of a hallway, it is probably because they WANTED to be seen. Saying "ha, I can see you!" doesn't prove that you're clever. Only that you can state the obvious. 10. Unless they are unprofessional, actors are unlikely to break character, regardless of how many devastatingly witty one-liners you come up with. You might think it's hilarious to ask for an actor's phone number, or to comment on how hot they are. Trust me, it's not especially if your significant other is standing right next to you. 11. Don't bother trying to act tough, we know you're scared. And pretending you aren't scared or trying to act smart just wastes your money, not ours. New! 12. If you are a normally jumpy person DO NOT handle any expensive equipment while going through a house or area with actors. (Ex. Cameras, Ipods, Video Recorders.) If an actor scares you or someone around you causing you to drop or throw the item and it breaks, it's your responsibility. New! 13. If you are in a scare zone, which is an area where there is no set path or house, the worst thing you can do when scared is run. Not only can this be dangerous but almost all actors will chase you if you run. Haha it's the predatory instinct and I can't say that I haven't chased a few people in my career. This tip also can apply to houses as running through narrow halls and around corners is a safety hazard. If anyone has anything to add please feel free to do so! Additions From PhantomTheater -Put the cell phone away, too many guest/character run ins are due to people trying to text. -Keep moving forward. Heading backwards or waiting can interfere with an actors bit. (More from Mouse: This mainly applies to houses. But make sure you are aware of your surroundings in a open scare zone.) -No open beverages, or your 4.00 drink may not end up inside you -Give the actor the right of way if they are walking against the current, It's their house and by not letting them move can mess up the show for people behind you. (More from Mouse: Also if there is an emergency this could cause some serious problems.) -Most importantly NO SMOKING OR LIGHTERS, see Great Adventure's tragedy for more information.
