Just a day ago, Knott’s released all the information on this year’s shows, mazes and scare zones. It’s gonna be a fun one. I’m not gonna lie, a scary one too, but very fun!

Knott’s Scary Farm is the largest, most haunting Halloween experience in Southern California, with endless mazes and shocking surprises in store for 2016. New this year, the legendary Headless Horseman and his army of undead creatures ready to unleash a reign of terror in the new scare zone, The Hollow. Fight off demon samurais within the depths of purgatory in the latest maze, Shadow Lands. That’s right, a samurai maze! Check out this samurai sword for sale to fight off the bad samurais.

Elvira, the legendary Mistress of the Dark, returns to Knott’s Scary Farm in a spectacular nightly show, Elvira’s Danse Macabre. Knott’s Scary Farm and Elvira go together like PB&J!

A maze we really enjoyed last year and that’s back again with new surprises is Paranormal Inc. Guests follow an all new investigation at a haunted abandoned asylum. The detail and surprises in this maze had never been seen before at Knott’s Scary Farm. We can’t wait to see what this year holds.Paranormal (no background)

With 13 haunted attractions and more than 1,000 monsters roaming the park and lurking in the fog, whatever you’re imagining, it’s here…at Knott’s Scary Farm.  Visit for tickets and join the conversation using #ScaryFarm

Knott’s Scary Farm is a separately ticketed event on 24 nights September 22 through October 31.  Due to the explicit and frightening nature of the event, it is not recommended for children under 13. If your kids are like mine and love the Paranormal Activity films and all the Halloween movies with Michael Myers, they will do just fine here!

We’ve been attending this party for years and I have forgotten how many times we have attended.  Below are the top 3 reasons why you should attend Mickey’s Halloween Party:

  1. It’s the only time when adults are allowed to wear costumes in the park. These days, it seems like adults of all ages are into cosplay and costumes, but only during Mickey’s Halloween Party, are adults permitted to be in full costume.
  2. Trick or Treating inside Disneyland. There are treat stations located throughout the park with both candy and healthy treat options.
  3. The unique entertainment: Halloween Screams Fireworks – A super fun Halloween firework show presented only during Mickey’s Halloween Party. Disney Villains at Village Square – available for photos and handshakes. Cadaver Dans – the Dapper Dans don their dead apparel and sing festive tunes throughout the night.


Tickets begin at $79 and are on sale now. Many nights sell out early, especially the Friday nights. Under age 3 do not need a ticket. More information can be found here.
