Halloweekends, Cedar Point, OH

Hi friends! I hope your week has gone well! I had the pleasure of taking a trip up to visit family in Ohio this past weekend. There are many things I love about Ohio, but one of the big things is Cedar Point Amusement Park. I may be a little biased because I grew up going to Cedar Point; however, I know I am not biased when it comes to LOVING Halloweekends. Every September Cedar Point transforms itself into the spookiest and coolest Halloween-themed park! I can say that Cedar Point is definitely the best scary theme park that I have been to (beating out Six Flags Fright Fest, Busch Gardens Howl-O-Scream, and I would even say Universal Studios Halloween Horror Nights). I know that sounds kind of crazy, but if you are looking for the most spook and fun for your buck, I highly recommend Cedar Point! Let’s get spooked shall we?!


Cedar Point offers six scare zones where trouble seems to lurk at every corner! With heavy fog and people who seem to walk almost silently, you’ll definitely be jumping and holding on to a friend or loved one! Some of my favorite scare zones are Tombstone Terror-tory, Harvest Fear and Carnevil!



This year Cedar Point is offering two new haunted houses (six total) and I must admit, they are pretty amazing! The people who are scaring you are really good at distracting you to one side, only to be scared when you turn around! If you love haunted houses, you are in for a treat! I highly suggest Freak Show (new), G.A. Boeckling’s Eerie Estate, and Zombie High School!


The best time to visit Halloweekends is on a Friday or a Sunday night. Saturday tends to be a nightmare (pun intended) of crowds and it will make it almost impossible for you to see everything. You can also ride some of the rides while there! I suggest my favorite ride since I was a kid, The Mine Ride. This year they added a haunting new twist, you have to find out #WhatsInTheShed


The fee for Halloweekends starts at $43/person, but that gets you into all the scare zones, haunted houses, and rides! You would be paying almost the same to get into somewhere like Six Flags (who doesn’t include haunted houses in their ticket prices… like idiots… sorry, I’m a bit salty from our recent trip there) but you will be getting so much more!


If you are ever near Sandusky, Ohio you MUST visit Cedar Point (Halloweekends or not)! It is such a fun amusement park and I highly recommend visiting at any and every opportunity! Also, if you have any fun other haunted/spooky/Halloween-themed locations that I should visit, please comment below! I always love suggestions!


Have a spooktacular evening!

P.s. All of these photos were taken from my phone, so I’m sorry they aren’t the normal quality of my photographs. However, I must admit I am pretty impressed at how well my phone actually did. Anywhoooo… have a good night!

Wandering Wednesday: The Myrtles, St. Francisville, LA

Hey everyone and happy Wandering Wednesday! Today is the very first of our spooky locations to explore for October! We will be visiting the quaint town of St.Francisville, Louisiana! I absolutely love St.Francisville! And not only because I got married there! It’s quite, beautiful, and all around adorable. And did I mention that it has 8 plantation homes within a 20 mile radius?!?! Each plantation is unique, but one stands out from the rest…. The Myrtles Plantation. The Myrtles Plantation has been around since 1796. Yes, you read that correctly. 1796. And unfortunately the beautiful plantation has seen it’s share of heartache. It’s no wonder that the Myrtles has been deemed as one of America’s most haunted houses! So get ready for some spooky story-telling, because this one’s a doozy.

The house is said to have had at least 10 murders in it. This may or may not be accurate, but the house is definitely creepy! They offer ghost tours of the plantation and tell some of the supposed grizzly happenings. The ghost that most people have heard about relating to the Myrtles is of a slave named Chloe. Legend has it that one day she lost favor with the master of the house after she was caught listening in on a private conversation. As punishment her master cut off her ear. She was so distraught that she sought revenge. She supposedly poisoned a birthday cake of  the daughter of the house, and wished only to make them sick. But she put too much poison in the cake which killed all of the children and the master’s wife. Chloe was hanged for killing the wife and children. Chloe is said to haunt the grounds to this day. They even have an eerie picture that is said to be the ghost of Chloe.

Now in the story, the wife and two children have died. It is said that their handprints and faces can be seen occasionally in the mirror in the hallway. The owners have supposedly taken the mirror down several times to be cleaned but the handprints remain.

They also say that a judge was shot and killed on the porch. They often see a man dressed in 1800s attire standing looking out on the balcony.

As if all this weren’t scary enough, you can actually stay at the plantation! They will tell you stories of ghostly happenings that occur in the rooms. They’ve heard everything from civil war soldiers stealing your shoes to a dead voodoo priestess staring down at you from the ceiling.  Yeah. Good luck with that.

If you ever get the chance to visit the Myrtles I highly suggest it. If you’re not into spooky stuff they do historical tours and house tours during the day. The house is a beautiful historical landmark and should definitely be at the top your list of places to see in St.Francisville!

And if you take a ghost tour or even dare to stay the night, be careful you don’t get stuck with the ghosts!

Happy wandering!
