Trick or Treat With Dinosaurs

Hurry only two more weeks left in the season. Don't miss out on the countless hours of fun for all ages. (Children 2 and under are free)  Kings Island has out done themselves and is now offering two attractions that are Fun Scary not Scary Scary for family friendly Halloween fun.  Their hours of operation for these attractions are Saturday and Sunday 11:00 - 6:00.

Trick or Treat With Dinosaurs is located in the Coney Mall section of the main amusement park. Although it is an additional $5.00 it is well worth the money. You will travel along a path filled with humongous animatronic dinosaurs that are dressed up and ready for Trick or Treating. Along the way you will stop for treats from employees that are also dressed up in Halloween costumes. To a dental assistant's delight they went beyond the typical candy and had some treats that were apples, pretzels and even toys. Around the halfway point through our prehistoric journey there was a Dig Site where they provided the kids with shovels, buckets and paintbrushes to see if they could uncover some dinosaur bones...oh and a bench for the parents for a much needed break to sit and relax watching the kids have fun. After having fun in the sand you will continue on your journey ready to pick a pumpkin in the pumpkin patch being overseen by very large sharp toothed dinosaur...ack...Stop by the craft station to personalize your pumpkin then off to the rest of the treat stops.  Some of our favorite moments...The little one repeating "Their lookin at me", or "Their talking to me", Roaring back at the dinosaurs and being able to press buttons to see the dinosaurs move.


yes they are moving and roaring every once in a while...Little one peers back to make sure they aren't coming any closer.

After all that fun you would have thought that was enough but heck no not for us we hopped on the train that took us through fields of hay bale pigs, cows, skeletons playing the banjo and even a bear stealing a pumpkin over to Howl O Palooza located in Soak City.

She's still talking about how the Dinosaurs were "Lookin at Me"

As you enter Safety Town is there to greet you featuring a Firehouse with a Firefighter handing out stickers, City Hall, Police Station and Hospital. Then you find yourself winding through the Twisted Tales maze perfect for little ghouls and boys where some of your favorite fairy tales take on a different twist. As you exit the maze your off to a small area of games costing around $1 to $2 per game featuring a guaranteed treat. (the kids were more interested in the animals so we ended up skipping this) Across from the games you will find a petting zoo filled with goats, llamas, bunnies, chickens, a cow and even some miniature ponies.  Some of their friends offered a Pony Ride that was only $1.00 per rider. (You should have seen those little faces light up.  Little one was proud to have done it all by herself and they even had a big horse for Rosey to ride) After that they have little tractors to ride through a hay bale course, a mini jumping blow up trampoline and a Dance party with foam waves (we skipped these to attempt another day little legs were getting very tired and I wasn't prepared with towels to clean them up after a foam bath) As you walked around the PEANUTS gang were there to have photo shoots and even had several of their own Halloween Party's scheduled at 1pm, 2pm, 3:30pm and 4:30pm making sure to celebrate Halloween with some of their favorite spooky classic songs...Now...we are definitely done off to take a nap...hopefully we won't have any nightmares of sharp toothed dinosaurs lookin at us.
