Calling all boos and ghouls! With Halloween weekend officially here, the time has come to summon the spirits and conjure up the courage for SoCal’s largest and most haunting Halloween event, Knott’s Scary Farm.
That’s right, this weekend is your last chance to face fear — and some frightful-fun— because Knott’s Scary Farm has 13 haunted attractions to terrify you, including four all-new nightmarish haunts each featuring unearthly surprises, ghoulish monsters and frightening legends that will shock, scare and surprise you. And 160 Acres of Scare Zones where monsters lurk in the streets and turn theme park midways into murderous scare zones. From the world famous Ghost Town Streets to the Boardwalk area filled with evil clowns, there’s nowhere to hide in Knott’s Scary Farm!
All-new ghoulishly-good attractions await you:
Special Ops: Infected: Experience the largest maze ever created in Knott’s Scary Farm history as you enter the eerie-epicenter of a live-action video game armed with cutting edge laser guns as you face off against hordes of zombies in the groundbreaking, all-new and high-tech Special Ops: Infected interactive maze. So form your squad and put your zombie apocalypse survival skills to the test in this action packed and one-of-a-kind experience!
Shadow Lands: Enter the hair-raising Shadow Lands maze and fight off demon samurais whose souls are cursed to rot within the depths of purgatory. You will embark on a quest through a sacred shrine, an ancient Japanese temple and into the midst of the shadow lands where your mission is to find safe passage out!
Red Barn: Take a trip to a blood-soaked barn filled with carnivorous animals seeking to prey on human flesh in the Red Barn gore maze. Legend has it the farmer who owns the barn was transformed into a heinous creature that sends his sadistic sons to ensure his legacy. None dare enter the barn, for those who enter never escape.
Standalone Skeleton Key Rooms: For the first time, Knott’s Scary Farm features standalone Skeleton Key Rooms that are independent from mazes. The four Skeleton Key Rooms each feature a unique story and theme delivering unparalleled scares, interactive secrets and terrifying surprises:
- Visions: investigate the Green Witch Museum in Ghost Town where it is not the building that is haunted, but the various items contained within. Using a Phantom Finder augmented reality device, you will be able to identify and witness paranormal activity connected to items from the Sarah Marshall Witch Trial
- ZOZO: People from all over the world claim to have been visited by the demon ZOZO after a spirit board session. Is the demonic entity known as ZOZO real or are spirit boards just a myth?
- Slasher: You are invited to step into an 80s’ slasher horror film. The masked Angel Maker Killer is on the loose. Every lead has run cold and that’s when you step into the picture. Will you become his next victim?
- Prey: Navigate a hay maze full of dead ends with only a faulty lantern as your guide. You are not alone. Mutant beasts are lurking around every corner
And returning favorites that are always dreadfully-delightful:
Elvira’s Danse Macabre- Elvira, the legendary Mistress of the Dark returns for a kind performance that will transport you to a masquerade ball full of music, dance and humor.
PARANORMAL, INC. – The Haunting of Hayden Hill returns with high flying aerial stunts and scares as you investigate a haunted hospital that’s filled with demonic spirits of murdered patients-turned-victims while evil medical staff prowl for souls to torture.
The Dead of Winter: Wendigo’s Revenge – Deep in the frozen tundra, the realm of a treacherous snow queen has been usurped by her evil minion, the horrific wendigo that’s ready to prey upon any unsuspecting visitors who enter the borders of its icy domain.
Trick-or-Treat- Take a brave step forward and ring the witch’s doorbell…trick or treat, which will it be? After surviving her grisly welcome, wander into the Green Witch’s never before seen potion room and bewitched attic. But don’t leave too soon, you’re the special guest at the Green Witch’s deadly dinner party where she and her menacing Tricksters await your arrival.
The Tooth Fairy- This twisted tooth fairy steals more than just baby teeth as he drags his victims out their bedroom window and into a world of deranged dentistry. Unbelievable special effects include a blackout room through which guests must feel their way out, a disorienting x-ray strobe light room, and a final encounter with the massive tooth fairy, himself. Say aahhh.
Voodoo: Order of the Serpent- The haunting legend of Papa Legba continues as guests follow him on his foreboding journey to conjure the serpent demon goddess in the outskirts of New Orleans. Trudge cautiously through the cursed swamps of the Deep South, where creatures search the murky bogs for their next bloody sacrifice and demons curse the innocent with Voodoo hexes.
The Gunslinger’s Grave: A Blood Moon Rises- Deadly howls and a full blood moon mark your impending doom as werewolves overrun the crime stricken old west town. Walk in the bloody footsteps of a betrayed and left for dead gunslinger on his path of retribution against the Skinwalkers.
The Deadly 7, a sadistic crew of terrifying monsters representing each of the seven deadly sins, return to the fog of Knott’s Scary Farm this year. Together they prowl the darkest corners of Scary Farm’s midways and scare zones serving their master, The Green Witch.
The Hanging®: Finding Gory – A live stage show in Calico Square irreverently looks back at the year’s pop culture with killer comedy. Notorious for its special effects, pyrotechnics and high-flying stunts, The Hanging is a no-holds-barred assault on pop culture’s most infamous moments of the past year. A must see parody!
