Knott's Spooky Farm Debut!


Growing up as a native to Southern CA, we lived in amusement park heaven. With three major theme parks (Disneyland, Knott's and Six Flags), there were never-ending options for thrills and fun. My mom is a huge Peanuts fan, so naturally, Knott's Berry Farm was one of our family spots! I remember eating the amazing fried chicken, hanging out at Camp Snoopy, and bringing home lots of yummy jam!

I'm so excited to share that Knott's will be debuting Spooky Farm®, their new park-wide daytime, scary-free celebration for kids, generally ages 3-11, but fun for the whole family! Let me tell you, I am easily scared, so you will not catch me after dark at haunted-theme park events or scary pumpkin mazes. So, this sounds like an event that I will totally enjoy! :) 

The spooky fun for the kiddos will run through the weekends only in October, beginning October 3rd through Halloween day! And yes, Knott's Spooky Farm® is included in your regular park admission, which is AWESOME.

Here's what you can expect at Knott's Spooky Farm® (besides loads of fun):

  • Trick-or-Treat – On Ghost Town's Main Street, kids will be able to trick-or-treat through the town, and hang out with Drac the Undertaker, The GhostRider Sheriff, The Werewolf Barber. If they're feeling extra adventurous, take them to Creepy Crawler Cabin in the Poy Express Rangers Station to touch and hold (or not) some fun loving bugs. Eek!
  • Spooky Hollow Maze – Head to Fiesta Village to tackle the maze through a spooky forest, have an spook-free encounter with the Headless Horsemen, and then kids can top off the fun while letting their imaginations run wild and paint their own pumpkin head (nominal fee). 
  • Monster Masquerade Ball – Down on the Boardwalk, kids and adults can get their ghostly groove on, decorate their own masquerade mask and enjoy some KARAOKE. Did you get that? KARAOKE. Who doesn't love karaoke?! Heck, I'll be the first in line. 
  • Camp Snoopy – participate in a spooky and delightful costume contest and then head to Camp Spooky Theatre to watch our friends, the Peanuts Gang, in The Monsters Are Coming, Charlie Brown! Our family LOVES the Peanuts Gang and watching the different Peanuts holiday films are our absolute favorite tradition.
