Prepare to be scared at Cedar Point soon.

The Ohio theme park's HalloWeekends kicks off next week with new scares and experiences, including the Midnight Haunted Maze and Clownz: Death Metal Tour.

According to Cedar Point, "Mr. Midnight, the icon of HalloWeekends, invites guests to explore the shadowy rooms of his mysteriously malevolent mind and become immersed in his "Book of the Dark," encountering the fears, terrors and horrors living within its pages."
