“Are you troubled by strange noises in the middle of the night?  Do you experience feelings of dread in your basement or attic, have you or your family ever seen a spook, spectre or ghost?”

Unless you’re a Ghostbuster, Halloween means candy for the kids and haunting good times for the grown-ups.

As the leaves fall the screams will soar into the not so silent nights at Cedar Points fourteenth annual “Hallo-Weekends” in Sandusky, OH, taking place from Sept. 17 to Oct. 31.

Friday nights though Oct. 29 kindergarten through college age students can receive a $5 discount on the normally priced $29.99 ticket simply by showing their school identification

For the older crowd, attractions include rickety roller coasters such as the “Millennium Force,” “Raptor,” and “Top Thrill Dragster.”

Various haunted houses such as “G.A. Boeckling’s Eerie Estate” dot the landscape. New for the 2010 season is “Dr. D. Mented’s Asylum for the Criminally Insane”

For the young ones, Cedar Point has tyke-sized terrors. “Magical House on Boo Hill,” located near the “Blue Streak,” offers seven fun filled rooms full of surprises and a treat to delight the kids as they emerge.

Cedar Point also has various shows and events that take place throughout the day, with everything from fortune tellers to the Peanuts gang.

As your hunger attacks on your frightful journey, don’t fret; Cedar Point has food to please your palette. The “Alien Café” offers burgers & shakes along with sci-fi shorts and spaceships. “G.A. Boeckling’s Eerie Estate” has fine fare including steak, seafood, or pasta and a salad.  The cost, however, may empty your money clip at $65/person. Meals are served on Fridays at 5:30 p.m., as well as on Saturdays and Sundays at 12:30 p.m.
