Break out your best monster make-up and come out to the monster bash block party at Kings Dominion. Admission is just $19.99 for FULLY dressed monsters on Friday, September 27, 2013.
The Kings Dominion gates open at 6:00 for the monster block party, which will feature music, dancing and special events such as a screaming contest and a funnel cake-eating contest.
After the monster bash block party, enjoy all of the scream-filled fun of Haunt, including rides, shows, scare zones and haunted mazes. Along with popular mazes from previous years, two new haunted mazes include Zombie High and Miner's Revenge.
Be creative with your monster bash costumes. There will be a prize for the best themed costume of the night. No masks or face coverings are allowed, however, guests are encouraged to use lots of face make-up, accessories, fake blood, distressed clothing and otherwise grunginess to make the most of the monster mash event.
When thinking of the “monster” theme, my thoughts run to the classic monster movies and shows such as “The Mummy'” “Bride of Frankenstein,” “The Munsters” and “The Addams Family.” Take a look through the slideshow to get some monstrous costume ideas.
Kings Dominion has become famous for its opening night Haunt events. In 2011, the park opened the Haunt season with a record-breaking vampire contest. They are now listed in the Guinness Book of Records as having the largest group of people dressed as vampires (1,039 to be exact). Last year, Kings Dominion opened Haunt with a Zombie Invasion Dance Party. Read all about that right here.
This Examiner was at last year's zombie event and I have to say, it is quite fun to walk around the park dressed in a creature costume. No masks, though. Please remember that.
For those planning to enter the screaming or funnel cake-eating contests, all entries must be received by Wednesday, September 25, 2013. You will receive two complimentary tickets to Kings Dominion to compete in the contest. Prizes are well worth the lung and gut-busting efforts it will take to win.

If you go:
- Show up at 6:00 (fully dressed as a monster of some sort) and pay just $19.99 for admission.
- Gold and Platinum 2013 season pass holders can buy up to six tickets for friends and family members for just $19.99. This offer is good for the weekend of September 27-29, 2013.
Please be advised, HAUNT is not intended for young children. Please use caution when deciding whether to bring young children to HAUNT. The park becomes a dark, fog-filled and scary environment, and is aimed at ages 13 and up.
Grab your monster friends and come on out to HAUNT. All of the best monsters will be there. I'm hoping to see lots of Frankensteins, Morticias, Uncle Festers and Teen Werewolves.
