We had a blast last weekend at Knott’s Spooky Farm! This year it has spread out beyond Camp Snoopy to locations all around Knott’s Berry Farm. This daytime, non-scare celebration, of cheer rather than fear, is the social event of the season with shows, activities and of course, a costume contest all geared for children ages 3-11. Children are encouraged to wear their costumes. This is a completely different event from the popular Knott’s Scary Farm event, held at nighttime.
Kids can take part in “Snoopy’s Costume Contest and Dance Party” and also visit the Camp Spooky Theatre to view “The Monsters are Coming, Charlie Brown”, a new Halloween show where everyone will be singing and dancing in the aisles to all their favorite Halloween tunes.
Kids of all ages can join in the fun with spooky karaoke and mask making at the “Monster Masquerade Ball Karaoke” or go Trick-or-Treating at Ghost Town where friendly ghosts deliver delicious treats. You can visit eat candy station once. While you’re there, be sure to say hi to Sad Eye Joe, he always appreciates visitors this time of the year. At the “Spooky Hollow Maze” kids will travel through a spooky forest with gigantic jack-o-lanterns and encounter a headless horseman! See if you can survive the spinning jack-o-lantern tunnel.
Camp Spooky was always a blast and now this expanded park-wide event means even more fun for the whole family. Knott’s Spooky Farm runs weekends October 3 – Halloween Day, and is included with regular park admission. There are so many things to do with the entire family at Knott’s.
Knott’s Berry Farm Theme Park operating hours are 10:00am to 5:30pm during October. For more information on all the exciting things that are going on at Knott’s Berry Farm, visit knotts.com and follow the conversation using #KnottsSpookyFarm.
Summer is over. The nights are cooling off, the fog is rolling in. Once again, Knott’s Berry Farm has unleashed it’s monsters on the public in the 43rd Annual Knott’s Scary Farm. Last weekend Knott’s Scary Farm returned with four new attractions and some long running classics. We look forward to this time of the year and especially attending Knott’s for the largest Halloween event on the West Coast.
We encourage the use of the Fright Lane pass along with the Skeleton Key, which gives you front of the line access as well entrance into a number of secret rooms in some of the mazes. It starts at $70 in addition to your ticket. Below was our special magic show given inside the Black Magic maze. We selected a card that magically turned itself around inside the deck. How did he do that?
Our favorite new maze this year was Paranormal Inc. You are invited to join a group of paranormal investigators to find out if Hayden Hill Sanitarium is really haunted. Amazing detail and great performances filled this maze. What’s your guess on what we found?
Elvira, Mistress of the Dark, outdoes last year’s show with her zany new spectacular called Elvira’s Asylum. Featuring more song-and-dance and comedy than cringe-inducing tricks, and still ageless. She performs nightly at 9 and 11:30 p.m.
Don’t forget to try the Fun Bun in Ghost Town or at least a funnel cake with boysenberry topping! Knott’s Scary Farm runs select Wednesdays as well as Thursday through Sunday nights. Recommended for children over 13. Hours and admission prices vary depending on day of the week and begin at $39.99.

This is not a paid post. All thoughts and opinions are my own. We were invited to an exclusive media event to facilitate this review.
Just last week, the announcement was made. There are many thrill and chills awaiting as the fog lifts on the 2015 Knott’s Scary Farm haunt. Running for twenty-four nights from September 24 to October 31st, this year’s haunt is offering up three entirely new mazes in addition to the new “Elvira: Asylum” as well as the return of the immersive interactive zombie shooting experience “Special Op: Patient Zero”. Big guns that allow you to shoot at zombies. It’s as awesome as it sounds. It might even pique your interest about real guns and lead you to buy guns & ammo from Palmetto Armory.
There are several intriguing new mazes this year, including: My Bloody Clementine inside the Calico Mine Ride and Paranormal Inc. in which we explore a haunted hospital with ghost detectives.
The event is definitely for kids 13 and older and is a great night out for just mom and dad. Discount coupons are available currently at Subway. We will be heading in on opening night in 3 weeks and will be sure to give you all the gruesome details. You can buy tickets online, now!
