Kennywood To Debut New Phantom Fall Fest Halloween Event
After nearly 20 years, Kennywood amusement park will no longer offer Phantom Fright Nights during Halloween. The Pittsburgh amusement park has announced an all-new “Phantom Fall Fest” Halloween event that will debut on Friday, October 1.
“For the first time ever, Kennywood will be open all day and well into the evening on Saturdays and Sundays in October, plus Friday evenings,” says Kennywood General Manager Mark Pauls. “Phantom Fall Fest will be the perfect balance between new, fun experiences for families and Halloween frights at night, preserving the award-winning spooky atmosphere Kennywood is known for!”
Phantom Fall Fest will allow guests to play all day (and night). Daytime operation during the event allows for more rides to be open than ever before, with Kiddieland, Thomas Town and other family favorites available to start, then closing down at 6pm. as fear kicks in gear.
When the sun goes down, The Phantom takes scream to the extreme with 5 haunted houses, 4 scare zones, including the new “Manor Estate Sale” and “Hellbilly Hollow”.
For those that prefer treats to tricks, Phantom Fall Fest will offer an all-new food and drink lineup. Guests will find turkey legs, pumpkin funnel cakes, seasonal beers, specialty cocktails, and a host of special dining selections around the park. Don’t worry: traditional favorites such as the Potato Patch will be open.
“With Phantom Fall Fest, guests can enjoy different and delicious dining experiences,” says Kennywood Culinary Director Ed Reams. “From sweet potato fries to chocolate-covered kettle corn, we will have plenty of options to satisfy both sweet and savory appetites!”
Phantom Fall Fest operates every Friday, Saturday and Sunday, October 1 – 31. Kennywood’s Chaperone Policy will be in effect beginning at 4 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays, and all day on Fridays.
