Kim Kardashian West started the Halloween weekend with Pete Davidson.

The SKIMS mogul, 41, was spotted with Davidson on a roller coaster at Knott’s Scary Farm in Buena Park, California, on Friday. In exclusive photos taken by PEOPLE, the couple can be seen holding hands while on a roller coaster with friends.

They were joined for the outing by Kim’s sister Kourtney Kardashian and her fiancé Travis Barker. Davidson, 27, and Barker, 45, know each other through their mutual friend Machine Gun Kelly.

“They hang in the same circles, so they will be together from time to time,” an insider tells PEOPLE. “It’s just friends hanging out.”

Kardashian West recently shared a kiss on screen with Davidson in a sketch when she was the host Saturday Night Live for the first time earlier this month. Years before, they hung out at Kid Cudi’s birthday party in January 2019 with Timothée Chalamet and Kim’s husband Kanye West, with whom she is currently going through a divorce.

Representatives of Kardashian West and Davidson did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s requests for comment.
