Saturdays and Sundays, starting Oct. 10 and running through Nov. 1, OWA’s amusement park will bring back everyone’s favorite Halloween-themed fun with its annual event, “Park After Dark.” From daytime activities to family-friendly evening events, Park After Dark is the perfect place to make Halloween memories with the young ones. Enjoy the free trick-or-treating with friendly costumed characters inside The Park at OWA, or purchase a wristband to gain extra access to our hay bale maze lined with your favorite Halloween characters. Plus, when you purchase your wristband, you can have fun all day with unlimited access to the attractions inside the amusement park.
“OWA’s goal is to always have something for everyone, so we have incorporated a family-friendly, non-scary experience inside the amusement park gates,” said Kristin Hellmich, OWA’s Director of Marketing/PR. “Park After Dark is a place for families to enjoy the thrills of The Park, as well as the sweeter side of Halloween with a hay maze and a variety of themed activities.”
