Knott’s Scary Farm 40th Anniversary Event
Knott’s Scary Farm Halloween Haunt has been around since 1973 and is the first halloween themed event of it’s kind in the world. They started out with five monsters with styrofoam sets, to 1,000 monsters with the most amazing halloween decorations seen anywhere. This year is their 40th anniversary, so the park is bigger and better than before. Other than the very creepy monsters you can hope to see: 13 themed mazes and ride-through attractions, 9 live shows, and 4 scares zones where the monsters get close enough to almost touch you.

The moment you walk into the park, it’s dimly lit with fog thick enough to bump into other attendees. It give the park a very “Nightmare on Elm Street” kind of feel, which is why they don’t recommend the event for anyone under 13. If you have a friend that’s a big scaredy cat you will have added fun watching your buddies cower in fear at every turn. Looking for a place to take that girl you always wanted to hug? The Haunt is a great place to scare your sweety right into your arms and be their comforting hero. If you want to check out the “Trapped” maze I suggest booking it right when you get there because it fills up fast since its the first reservation-only maze in the park and people will be scrambling to get in.
