Tricks and Treats Fall Fest Replaces Halloweekends At Cedar Point
Make no bones about it, Cedar Point’s all-new Tricks And Treats Fall Fest is set to be the area’s favorite event for family-friendly Halloween activities and fall fun. Tricks and Treats Fall Fest is the park’s new Halloween event for the 2020 season after HalloWeekends was canceled because of the coronavirus pandemic. Everyone in the whole family will have a spook-tacular time with AMAZING food, specialty drinks, activities, entertainment, seasonal merchandise, and so much more!
Trick-or-treating is definitely on the agenda at Tricks And Treats Fall Fest, so kids – wear your Halloween costumes and go candy hunting! With specially designed sanitation processes and social distancing measures in place, you can count on Cedar Point to bring this Halloween tradition to life in a fun new way while being as safe as possible.
For $30, guests can purchase a Tasting Card valid for six (6) menu items. This will allow guests to visit numerous tasting stations and get snack-sized portions of scrumptious sweets and savories—from wild to mild. You’ll nosh on Tricks (foods that might look a bit crazy but are crazy delicious) and classic Treats (seasonal tastes we know and love). Also available throughout the park will be gotta-have-it favorites and lots of goodies with a Halloween twist. Below is a look at the tasting card menu.
“Halloween is a special time at Cedar Point, and our guests really look forward to it,” said Jason McClure, vice president and general manager of Cedar Point, in a press release. “While we all have to do things a little differently this year, Tricks and Treats Fall Fest is filled with fun activities for everyone, spectacular food, a variety of outdoor entertainment and a few tricks and treats. Our mission to make people happy continues into the fall season, and we’re committed to entertaining our fans, friends and families safely.”
Brews and Booze Bars will be serving up specialty drinks and a variety of craft beers will also be on hand! *Drinks are sold separate and not part of the $30 food tasting cards*
