After darkness falls, evil rises.
Kings Island's carnival of terror returns this season with the region's largest collection of ghouls. The main event is a collection of 11 haunted walk-throughs, including the new Delta Delta Die haunted sorority house, the 28 Days Later-inspired Urgent Scare, the killer clowns of Carnevil and Madame Fatale's Cavern of Terror. Pretty much every popular haunt theme is covered along this exhaustive collection of haunts.
There are also four “fear zones” — eerie places to stroll and see, including Freak Street, which features sideshow terrors.
Finally, there are many live performances including Ed Alonzo's Psycho Circus and the sexy vampire musical Hot Blooded. It's an all-you-can-scream buffet of horror.
