No Clowns at Midnight again, but I love how they put more scare zones in!

What bugs me is that what is the expo Skelton room is it in the flight deck que or in the sky flyer area? Maybe it's a typo or a scare zone not announced

I think that most of the Cedar Fair Haunts are being moved outside of the mazes this year for the most part. During the Knotts Scary Farm panel at the mid-summer scream convention they mentioned that they are wanting to make the rooms an experience by themselves.

I do believe that we will see the expo Skeleton Key Room based on the Trick or Treat scare zone since they are in the same area. Same with the other Rooms in different areas of the parts, reflecting the scare zone that they were put in.

Halloween Haunt starts one month from today! That being said we should organize another HauntMania event. I know it didn't work out well the last time we tried to do it but it might be possible as the last (and only) time we did HauntMania was 5 years ago.

Skeleton keys in scarezones? I don't know. It looks like we will only be getting 9 mazes this year, that is a reduction. Okay, so save money by only having 9 mazes and putting those monsters outside in the scarezones again. Hmmmmm. I wonder if they only have 300 monsters again like last year. Overall, I'm not too excited about this announcement. Only 9 mazes, no show in the theatre. I guess we'll wait and see, but it really sounds like same-old, same-old again this year.

Hopefully they strategize on where to put the scarezones like I said in an earlier post " There's too many Dead Zones with fog" to be honest I skipped last year

Has it been confirmed that some pathways in the kids area will be open?

There will be a show in Wonderland Theatre, it just hasn't been announced yet. And the website promises over 700 monsters. Also, Haunt has two more nights than last year, so that's definitely an addition! Moving the Skeleton Key rooms outside the mazes is probably a smart move as it will spread people out more, thus making the lines a little shorter overall and it prevents people with Fright Lane from accidentally skipping the Skeleton Key rooms and then having to line up in the regular line for their second time through the mazes just so they can get to those rooms.

Can anyone confirm it was 300 monsters last year? If so. did the site say 700 monsters like it does this year? If there's actually going to be twice as many scareactors this year than last I am pumped!

Clown, it was on the radio spots last year. Was it a mistake? I don't know, but 300 monsters were announced. Ask your local radio station.

Josh doesn't work there anymore (and doesn't live in Toronto either). So I don't expect an update.
Haunt is gone.

Canada's Wonderland has removed Fear VR: 5150 from its Haunt site. It seems there were concerns about the portrayal of persons with mental illnesses when the experience opened at Knott's Berry Farm and California's Great America. I was really looking forward to this, so hopefully they can alter the content in some way to allow the experience to still open.

Also, Mysterion the Mind Reader has been replaced by The Sentimentalists.
