Dutch Wonderland Happy Hauntings Halloween Weekends, Review and Discount Codeby EJ on 10/28/16
There's still time to enjoy Dutch Wonderland's Happy Hauntings, a Halloween themed weekend at the premier family-friendly amusement park near Philadelphia, PA. Four Little Monsters spent a recent evening exploring the park at night, amid spooky lights, draped cobwebs, dancing skeletons and Halloween-decorated rides.
Re-themed Rides For Halloween at Dutch Wonderland
With over thirty seasonally decorated kid-friendly rides to choose from at Dutch Wonderland's Happy Hauntings, we went from one ride to another, trying them all. We brought Grandma along, as she's a big fan of amusement park rides. Favorites included The Space Shuttle, Dr. Ober's Monster Trucks, Gargoyle's Flight and The Halloween Hopper and of course, The Roller Ghoster. We couldn't get the kids - or Grandma - off the coaster until the park forced them off when closing for the night! There were a great selection of rides for all my monsters, from my littlest toddler to my eleven year old. There were plenty of rides we could all share together as well, which is great thing for a Mom or Dad who has a big crew of littles in tow!
Though the park was buzzing with activity, we rarely spent too much time in a line. The lines moved quickly and the kids spent most of their time having absolute fun. The employees were super pleasant, which is always a plus. There were a ton of kiddos in costume. It was really cool to see all the families that came to the park in costume together. We didn't have our costumes completely prepared quite yet, so we opted to bundle up in jackets instead.
Dutch Wonderland Decorated For Halloween Happy Hauntings Fun
Dutch Wonderland was adorable at night. From the giant inflatable spider and decorated castle out front to the dancing skeletons on Exploration Island, the Halloween atmosphere was fabulous without being too scary for the little ones. The park really went all out on decorations including hay bales, pumpkins, string lights, ghosts, skeletons, spiders and more. Of course, my monsters were thrilled about The Trick-or-Treat Trail, included with admission, which featured the park's resident dinosaurs in costume along a fun trail lit in string
lights. Our particular favorite costumed dinosaur was Tinkerbell Rex. Other dinosaurs sported Pokemon, Harry Potter, Minion and Star Wars garb to name a few. Park employees, also in costume, passed out candy at various stations. They ended up with a good deal of candy by the end so that was a really nice treat.
