Knott’s Spooky Farm


Halloween is one of the best times to visit Knott’s Berry Farm. While most of my readers withou young children won’t be visiting during the evening for #ScaryFarm, there is a daytime option for the entire family. During weekends in October, the park transforms into the all-ages Knott’s Spooky Farm, featuring kid friendly fun. There is trick or treating, spooky fun entertainment and delicious treats to be had all around the park.

We enjoyed the park on a pleasant Sunday afternoon. The crowds were light and the energy was fun. We have not been able to spend such a nice day together as a family in awhile, so this was an extra special treat. We tried to catch all the special Spooky Farm activities so we could share them with you. Below is our list of things you don’t wanna miss during your trip this season!

Knott’s Spooky Farms’ friendly monsters can be found haunting along Main Street in Ghost Town. This is where kids can do some trick-or-treating for tasty sweets. The streets are full of fun ghosts, not there to scare but to pose for pictures and chat with the little ones. You can see one of them in the top left picture above.


This is the 50th anniversary of the animated classic Peanuts, It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown!, kids can join Linus and Sally in Ghost Town with special Halloween themed activities like decorating their very own pumpkin head, for a nominal fee.


The frightful fun continues in Camp Snoopy where the Peanuts gang host a spooktacular costume contest every day at 3:45 PM which invites families to bring their festively costumed children for some Halloween fun!

The Camp Spooky Theatre hosts the Peanuts Gang in The Monsters Are Coming, Charlie Brown, where they’ll have guests of all ages singing and dancing along to classic Halloween tunes.


My kiddos had a great time exploring the kid-friendly Spooky Hollow Maze in Camp Snoopy which offers an trip through a spooky forest with larger-than-life jack-o-lanterns.


New this year, the Ghastly Gallery hosted in the Boardwalk Ballroom, welcomes little ghouls to enter a monstrous museum where they can explore spooky culture and even have the artistic opportunity to display their “monsterpieces” and visit the Monsterpiece Theatre.  There are some great photo opportunities to be found inside.

A great option during your day is the All Day Dining plan. You can dine at  participating locations and enjoy one entrée and one side dish as often as every 90 minutes! For only $31.99 you can enjoy up to seven different dining locations throughout Knott’s Berry Farm. Drinks are not included.

Daytime Fun for the Kiddos at Knott’s Spooky Farm

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 and follow the conversation using #KnottsSpookyFarm.
