Halloween at Old Town is sure to be fun, just as it will be at all of the Orlando theme parks. The weekend crowds are picking up, and the weekday evening events are filling up too. One of the lesser-known attractions that fill up on the weekends is Old Town. This lesser-known attraction is located on Highway 192 along the Kissimmee tourist corridor.

First of all, nearly every weekend at Old Town streets fill up with more than just their usual car show. Live entertainment is featured, even karaoke. Muscle & classic cars are fun to admire during their nightly car cruise.

On Halloween night, zombies linger within the park to meet guests. “Thriller” dance performances begin, a costume contest is held, and there is trick-or-treating for all ages (Oct. 31 from 5pm to 7pm) in a fun, safe environment. Best of all, it’s FREE! Well, most of it anyway.

Old Town Trick-or-Treat

Children in Halloween costumes show funny faces

The Haunt Event at Old Town has been discontinued. The following information is from 2016 and kept on this post for reference only. Only on Halloween night is there a special Halloween event at Old Town.

The Haunt Event for Halloween at Old Town

The Haunt event includes free events and ticketed attractions. There are 5 scare zones that are free, 2 haunted mazes ($6 each, or $10 for both mazes) and a new zombie tag experience ($25, with $10 rebate upon badge return. After first game: $6 per game). If you’d like to experience the entire Haunt, go for the combo ticket at $55. It includes both mazes, a zombie tag game and a limited edition Haunt shirt.

The haunted mazes are called Warehouse X and Clown Town. These are best for guests 16 years of age and up. In fact, if you want to avoid the scary sections altogether, Halloween at Old Town is set up with the front of the park less scary for the little ones. The further in, the scarier it gets.

“I think the zombie tag is what will set us apart from any other haunted attractions,” said Thearon Scurlock, Old Town’s general manager. It is an all-new interactive experience held outside. Guest try their hand at surviving a zombie apocalypse. As the evening darkens, the challenge increases. How will you fair?

Costume Contests

Furthermore, be sure to stay and have the little ones take part in Old Town’s annual costume contest.  Judging will be based on audience participation but everyone will walk away a winner for trying out.  Contests will include different age groups so dress up everyone for a chance to win some great prizes.

In addition to the costume contest, grab your little ghoul or goblin for a night of Halloween fun at Old Town.  Bring your bags and stop by one of Old Town’s many candy stations and participating merchants to load up on delicious, sugary treats. Trick-or-Treating and the costume contest are FREE for all ages.

Trick-or-Treating: 5:00pm – 7:00pm (or while supplies last)
Costume Contest: 7:00pm – 8:00pm (Old Town Main Stage)

*****Masks are not permitted on property for any age. They will be allowed during the Costume Contest at the Old Town Stage.

No Zombies at This Attraction

Finally, another lesser-known attraction is just down the road from Old Town. Capone’s Dinner & Show, is 3.1 miles east at 4740 West Irlo Bronson Memorial Highway, Kissimmee, FL 34746. Al and his gang will be entering their 30th anniversary in 2022, but you don’t have to wait until then to see the spectacular show. The show runs (almost) nightly and is a great way to spend an evening with gangsters and dames from an era that produced its own thrills. Save a night for this fun, action-packed dinner show. It is the best bang for your buck and doesn’t include a single zombie!
