Tricks and Treats: Choose Your Path!

Halloween celebrations at California's Great America are transforming in 2022 as we say goodbye to Halloween Haunt and introduce Tricks and Treats, our all-new, over-the-top, larger-than-life, gotta-be-there Halloween event with all fun and no fright. From little goblins to grown-up ghouls, everyone will find ghastly great things to do for Halloween. Plus, we’ve got skeleTONS of delicious seasonal treats, drinks and, of course, candy!

There’s so much to see and do at Tricks and Treats! When you arrive, you choose a path to follow—and both have their temptations. Do you stroll into the Land of Tricks, promising spooky (but not scary), gross and weird adventures? Or do you dare explore the quirky murk of the Land of Treats with all the nostalgia of a cozy fall festival?

The Land of Tricks offers two realms with everything slimy, spooky and strange: Icky Ville and Spooky Spires. 

The Land of Treats includes two uniquely sweet areas: Everfall and Sweet Tooth Acres.

If that’s not fang-tastic enough, our most popular rides are open to deliver the AMAZING thrills and chills found only at California's Great America.

The Land of Tricks

Land of Tricks: Icky Ville
Eww! Yuck! Gross! If your Halloween fix includes all things slimy, crawly, goopy and stinky, then Icky Ville is your home away from home. Giggle at the messy mayhem of the Clean Up Crew. Laugh out loud at our hilarious game show, “The Gross Out Gauntlet.” Bug out to tunes from The Snots, our all-zombie cover band. Don’t have a brain? We have a fried (funnel cake) one just for you!  

Land of Tricks: Spooky Spires

Goth is glorious at Spooky Spires, a 1920s village with deadpan locals just dying to hang out with you. Feel the beat at our silent disco that’s not so silent. Get sucked in and creeped out by our immersive ghost stories. Dig into deliciousness at the Cemetery Cafeteria and Ice Creamatorium. Everyone wins at our SkeleTONS midway games. Got lungs? Showcase your best bloodcurdling screams at The Scream Bottler.

The Land of Treats

Land of Treats: Everfall
If your idea of fall includes softly glowing candles, pumpkin spice and cozy flannel, Everfall is your classic autumn dream. Come on in for campfire stories, acoustic covers of popular seasonal songs, pumpkin decorating, rock painting and a leaf-peeping spot for photos. Enjoy s’mores, an elaborate custom cocoa bar, craft beers, ciders and cocktails.  

Land of Treats: Sweet Tooth Acres
Down on the farm where the candy corn and lollipop trees grow like crazy, we enjoy fall’s bounty by indulging in the sweetest treats imaginable. Tap your toes to the a cappella harmonies of The Fun Size Four and hit Jolly Rancher’s Market, a farmer’s market with bushels of bubble gum, ears of candy corn, and fresh Swedish fish straight from the soda stream. Discover your candy match with The Candy Predictor. And what Halloween is complete without trick-or-treating so don’t miss out on our incredibly sweet Trick or Treat trail.

Halloween Activities for Everyone

In each Land, you’ll find Halloween activities to delight every witch and warlock. Discover mysteries to untangle. Explore mazes filled with silly shenanigans, not scares and gore. Challenge your mummy to crazy games. Meet kookie characters. Strut your stuff in a costume contest. Get creative with seasonal make-and-take crafts. Decorate your own pumpkin. Dance to our DJ’s sizzling sounds. Score specialty souvenirs to take home. Best of all, guests are encouraged to attend Tricks and Treats in costume and enjoy the endless trick or treating located throughout the event.

Live Halloween Entertainment

Around every corner at Tricks and Treats is spook-tacular live entertainment that families and friends can enjoy together. Bust a gut laughing at our hilarious game shows. Sit a spell and enjoy the music of talented performers. Grab a friend and listen to not-so-spooky tales spun by master storytellers.

Fall Festival Food with Tantalizing Twists

Beating gummy hearts? Fried brain funnel cakes? Of course! At Tricks and Treats, we’re serving up boo-licious fall treats—many with mischievous twists for a gross-out (but always delicious) foodie experience. Older ghosts and ghouls can partake of our bewitching brews, potions and magical elixirs.

You can also collect candies and goodies at trick-or-treat locations throughout the park.
