Before you know it fall will be here. If you live in Southern California, you know it is also time for Knott’s Berry Farm to turn into Knott’s Scary Farm. I recently attended a media event to preview all the scary stuff that is in store for visitors.
For those of you who have never been, there are many fun mazes and attractions that are made to scare the beejeezes out of you. With names like Gunslinger’s Grave and The Witch’s Keep, these mazes are meant to really test your bravery.
There is much more besides the mazes, there are various scenes throughout the park in areas such as the Ghost Town, CarnEvil (your biggest clown fear comes true – these guys are so creepy), and Gypsy Camp are all scary areas for horror fans.
There is a Dance Party too!
One of the new features this year, is the Special Ops: Infected feature. If you or someone you know loves The Walking Dead or Z Nation, they will love this. It is an attraction that allows you and your team of friends or family to participate in the war against the Zombie Apocalypse.
There are also special horror-themed shoes including Elvira’s Big Top and The Hanging – Everything is Gruesome!
By the way, I saw Elvira at the preview and looks amazing! That woman IS magic because she just does not age at all!
WHAT MAKES KNOTT”S SCARY FARM SPECIAL?
Since 1973 Knott’s Scary Farm has been the benchmark against which all Halloween events are judged. The world’s first Halloween theme park event began with just a handful of monsters and sparse decorations, and has grown to become the largest, most creative scary theme park in the world. This living nightmare continues to frighten and amaze as it returns for its 42nd season with ten haunted attractions, two shows, and a thousand monsters lurking across the park’s 160 acres.

I attended a media preview for this attraction. All opinions are my own. Photos of the reprinted with permission and I met some zombies at the event that were amazing at scaring people, even at the preview.The Knott’s Scary Farm venue is not recommended for children under 13 and maybe some other people like moms that do not like clowns, because it really is scary.
Oh and there were some amazing cupcakes and treats at the event too. The foodie in me has to share them with you, because well, it is Knott’s and their food is defrightful.
Now tell me, do you or someone you know liks zombies or watch zombie shows and like to be scared?
