Are you a fan of haunted houses, spooky mazes and frightening scare zones? If you love the thrill of Halloween and all the spooks that come out at night, Worlds of Fun Kansas City Halloween Haunt is the place to visit. For one admission price you get access to seven scary haunted houses and horrifying mazes, including CornStalkers and Asylum Island, and three scare zones. I visited this house of horrors Saturday night with my husband and Lisa and Tim for The Walking Tourists and it was terrifying!
LIVE SHOWS AT HALLOWEEN HAUNT
When the sun goes down, fog filters through the park, spooky music starts to play and creatures are at every corner all leading up to the Overlord’s Awakening. Watch the live show as the Overlord summons his 400 monsters for the night to haunt Worlds of Fun. This parade of monsters is frightening because these are the creatures that will be lurking in the corners of the haunted attractions. The costumes and makeup of the monsters is meticulous and very realistic. There is a mix of sexy, scary and downright disgusting. Something to scare everyone!
Make sure to check out Ed Alonzo’s Psycho Circus of Magic and Mayhem included free with admission. I remember Ed Alonzo from his role as Max in the Magician in the original ‘Saved by the Bell’. I was very impressed with his elaborate magic tricks and the raunchy humor. One trick he even transported a live duck to a bucket 25 feet away! I still have no idea how he managed that feat. This is a must see show if you visit Worlds of Fun Halloween Haunt!

HALLOWEEN HAUNT 2014 DETAILS
Halloween Haunt 2014 will run Friday and Saturday nights through November 1. Check online events and promotions for discount tickets, including Friday night military and college ID discounts.
I will warn you that the lines for the haunted houses and scare zones are very long with an hour wait at most of them. If you really want to see all that Halloween Haunt offers I would advise spending the extra money for a Fright Lane pass that puts you at the front of the line for all the scary attractions. When you compare how many haunted houses and scare zones you get to see in one place versus the cost for just one haunted house admission at other attractions the cost for Worlds of Fun is reasonable. Plus, all the regular Worlds of Fun rides are still running during the Haunt, only they are scarier with the fog and spooky music.
Note: Halloween Haunt and Ed Alonzo’s evening shows are for a mature audience. They are very scary and contain adult content and costumes. If you take your young kids on a Haunt night make sure to leave the park BEFORE the sun goes down. Worlds of Fun does have daytime scare-free Halloween events and a kid-friendly Ed Alonzo magic show.
