MASON, OH (FOX19) -

Kings Island opens its sixth annual Halloween Haunt on Sept. 21 with some new terror-filled attractions. 

Halloween Haunt features over 500 gruesome creatures, 12 spine-chilling haunted attractions and 20 thrill-inducing rides. 

This year, the bloodcurdling horror and nightmarish madness of Halloween Haunt will feature an all-new thriller maze, Madame Fatale's Cavern of Terror, a punk rock stomp with Blood Drums, and two new fear zones in Grimm Boulevard and Freak Street. 

Returning haunted attractions include CarnEvil, Club Blood, CornStalkers, Cut Throat Cove, Holiday Horror, Massacre Manor, Mysteria, Slaughter House, Tombstone Terror-Tory, Urgent Scare and Wolf Pack. 

Also back by popular demand for a fourth season is "Hot Blooded", a live stage show in the International Showplace Theatre.  A second live show, "Graveyard Shift", makes its Halloween Haunt debut in the Festhaus. 

Kings Island's most popular thrill-ride attractions are open during Halloween Haunt. Favorites include The Beast, Diamondback, Firehawk, Vortex, Drop Tower, Invertigo, Delirium, Flight Deck, The Racer, Flight of Fear, Adventure Express, Backlot Stunt Coaster, Monster, Scrambler Dodgem, Zephyr, Shake, Rattle & Roll, Boo Blasters on Boo Hill and WindSeeker.   

Halloween Haunt will begin Sept. 21 and run every Friday and Saturday night through Oct. 27 from 6 p.m. until 1 a.m., except for Sept. 22 when the park opens to the public at 7 p.m.

Friday nights feature the "Wall of Monsters" when the gates to the underworld open at 6 p.m.  Only the bravest of souls will make it past the vast array of vampires, werewolves, mummies, zombies, undertakers, clowns and assorted ghouls and monsters they'll encounter on their way into the park.

The park opens at 11 a.m. on Saturdays, with Halloween Haunt beginning at 6 p.m.  The rides and attractions in the award-winning Planet Snoopy kids' area close at 5 p.m. on Saturdays when the transformation into Halloween Haunt begins.   Halloween Haunt does not take place on Sundays, when park hours are from 11:00am until 7:00pm.
