California’s Great America – Snoopy’s Trick-Or-Treat Festival/Halloween Haunt


California’s Great America introduces Snoopy’s Trick-Or-Treat Festival for 2013. Snoopy’s Trick-Or-Treat Festival runs Saturdays and Sundays from Oct. 5-27 with activities throughout the park’s 10am-5:30pm daytime hours. (Halloween Haunt runs from 7pm-Midnight and requires a separate ticket.)

Guests 12 and younger can race through a hay maze, decorate pumpkins or watch the Fun House Express video in the action theater. Of course, the younger set will enjoy wearing their costumes to Great America and trick-or-treating with Snoopy and the Peanuts gang.

Don’t forget to have the little ones visit our giant talking pumpkin that will interact with kids throughout Snoopy’s Trick-Or-Treat Festival.

Halloween Haunt at California’s Great America will begin frightening and scaring guests Sept. 27 on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays and keep the evil running until Oct. 27. Scare times run from 7pm-Midnight on each eerie evening.

Halloween Haunt’s sixth horrifying season will debut two new sinister mazes, raising the frightful walks of terror count to eight. Dia de los Muertos lures victims into the forbidden jungle of El Chupacabra – where blood rains from the sky. La Llorona, the Weeping Woman, delivers horrifying screams as creatures of the night crawl from their crypts. In the bloody halls of Zombie High, students experience a horrific homecoming with demonic hellions roaming about.

Great America’s six returning haunted mazes include: Slaughterhouse Annihilation, CarnEvil, Werewolf Canyon, CornStalkers, Madame Marie’s Massacre Manor and Toy Factory.

“Halloween Haunt is the Bay Area’s premier fright event,” said California’s Great America Vice President and General Manager Raul Rehnborg. “Haunt provides terrifying mazes and in-your-face experiences, mixed with the added fun of all our thrill rides. Halloween Haunt at California’s Great America is the perfect place to confront your fears.”

Also new for 2013 is Fun House Express in the Action Theater, a haunted attraction featuring a hilarious and wild underground ride filled with clowns, chaos and surprises.

Three exhilarating Scare Zones return for 2013 to keep guests on edge throughout the night. In Dead Man’s Cove – dastardly dead pirates pursue your souls, while The Gauntlet area features tortured spirits lurking in the fog. Underworld Alley is a forgotten graveyard where the undead awake to wreak havoc.

Halloween Haunt’s five Live Shows bring additional frights, shrills and campiness to Great America. New for 2013, Blades of Horror transports screen images to life and guest can only hope to depart safely in Halloween Haunt’s inaugural ice show.

The Halloween Haunt experience begins each evening with the Overlord unleashing his fury from atop Carousel Columbia.
