There’s nothing quite like a heart-pounding, scream-inducing roller coaster ride to go along nicely with all your tricks and treats during the Halloween season. If hurtling through space strapped to a seat and twisting and turning upside down really, really fast is how you like to spend your Halloween, then has just the deals for you.

So get ready for a fun – and high-flying – Halloween with these great deals on Halloween events featuring some of the best thrill rides anywhere.

Save up to 40%

There’s still time to visit Howl-O-Scream for lots of fun and plenty of thrill rides. Experience Florida’s top thrill rides in the dark, which will definitely have you Howl-O-Screaming!

  • Falcon’s Fury – Falcon’s Fury is the tallest freestanding drop tower in North America, standing at 335 feet. At the ride’s highest point, like its bird of prey namesake, riders pivot 90 degrees in midair to a facedown dive position. An instant later they’ll plunge 60 mph straight down.
  • SheiKra – North America’s first dive coaster will take you 200 feet up to the edge of a 90-degree drop—and that’s just the beginning. Surrender to speed as you dive straight down into a 70 mph coaster whirlwind with an initial intense head-spinning loop, a second dive into an underground tunnel and a splashdown finale that drenches SheiKra fans waiting below.
  • Cheetah Hunt – Challenge Florida’s first and only triple-launch coaster Cheetah Hunt in the dark! This is a 4,400-foot sprint that will take your breath away, and it’s guaranteed to get anyone’s heart racing.
  • Kumba – After the blood-curdling thrill of Kumba’s initial 135-foot drop, you’ll plunge into a dark diving loop, feel a full three seconds of absolute weightlessness while spiraling 360 degrees, and tear through one of the World’s largest vertical loops, all in the darkness of night.
  • Montu – Feel the ultimate rush on one of the tallest and longest inverted roller coasters in the World! Darkness intensifies the thrill of Montu’s inverse diving loop.

Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights 2015

Save up to 50%

Just across I-4 you’ll find even more tricks and treats: Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights is being billed as the biggest and scariest one ever, and judging by the rundown of terror houses, wild rides and special events planned for guests, I’d say you could expect a frightfully good time.

And there’s still time to enjoy all the scary fun! The Halloween event runs until Nov. 1. In between trying to stay away from the mutants, monsters and maniacs roaming around the park, why not hop on a thrill ride? At night! Even better!

  • Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit – Adrenaline pumping and music thumping, you’ll start climbing straight up. A moment later, you’ll be screaming down a high-speed plunge from 17 stories above Universal Studios.
  • Revenge of the Mummy – You’ll plummet in total darkness, plagued by fireballs, swarms of beetles and an army of mummies on this roller coaster unlike anything that’s come before it.
  • Men In Black Alien Attack – Board your training vehicle and take aim at “the scum of the universe” who have escaped from their intergalactic prison transport.
  • The Simpsons Ride – Ride along with The Simpsons as they fly, float, and crash their way through Krustyland, the low-budget theme park created by Krusty The Clown.

There’s also the Six Flags Amusement Parks Nationwide that are having lots of fun with the annual Fright Fest – featuring an array of wild rides perfect for enjoying when the moon and stars are out.
