Halloween is just around the corner – have you decided on a costume yet? If you haven’t, no worries! We are here to help give you inspiration for kid, adult, couple, group, and pet costumes! Each year, we host our annual Halloween Weekends during which we have costume contests and award prizes to the best of the best, (so you could say we’re pretty much experts in the subject). Keep reading to see the “best in park” from the previous years and kickstart the brainstorming for your costume this year!

A Halloween classic, will you wear a traditional black hat with spider earrings, or add a twist with a colorful wig and other fun touches?! You’ll be the talk of the park if you go the extra mile by wearing a light-up costume, complete with a witches’ broom!

Will you be a cuddly kitten or a sneaky shark? This can be an easy DIY costume for both kids and adults alike – the options are virtually limitless! Round up the gang and dress up like barnyard animals, or pick out a comfy onesie of your favorite animal. Bonus points if you can sound like the animal, too – MEOW!

Another Halloween classic, you can amp this idea up by using face paint or make up! You might even be spooky enough to win a prize or two! Plus, you can be a skeleton by yourself or gather up a group for even more bone-tastic fun!


Dress up like your favorite cartoon or movie character, superhero, princess, and more. Be funny or spooky, there’s so many options to choose from! You and your best friend could even be Yogi Bear™ and Boo Boo™, too!


Pets in costume is one of our favorite parts of Halloween! Be sure to bring your pooch when you visit us this Halloween and come with a costume (or two!) prepared. Keep scrolling for another one of our favorite pup costumes!
