Halloween Haunt at Knott’s Scary Farm

Last week, I attended the much anticipated 40th anniversary of Knott’s Scary Farm’s Halloween Haunt.  I had a blast. For someone who hasn’t been there in almost 20 years, I really had a great time.

I think what made my night awesome was the company I had.  Although my group was made up of some of the best bloggers, 2 of us hadn’t been there in a while, for another, it was their first time and for others, they were pros! I had already anticipated that I was going to have a scary “good” time and boy, that night did not disappoint.

The festivities started off with a delicious buffet.  The food was delicious and the desserts were scrumptious.Perfect for a night of ghouls and goblins. Make sure to check out their exclusive offer for the “boofet.”

As you make your way into the park, you are immediately taken into a whole new Knott’s.

If you are planning a trip to Scary Farm and you are a bit on the “chicken” side, like I am, I say to let go of your inhibitions and have a great time.  Sure it’s scary and freaky, but it truly is in the name of having a great time.  The group that I hung out with was perfect.  We laughed like crazy and screamed like crazy.  The next day, my sides were so sore from the laughs and screams.

Trapped, Knott’s Scary Farm’s new interactive maze was (from what I hear) crazy amazing. I didn’t have the guts to go in but I heard there were stuff to get into and lay down on… and well, this chicken is just too… chicken!

You have the option of going these really surreal mazes that are there to scare the living daylights out of you.  Some are really mellow like, Dia de los Muertos (Day of the dead) and others really were crazy scary. And in reality, what I mean by scary is just people jumping at you, or startling you at every corner.  The characters never touch you and there are “safety” doors and security in all the mazes.  I really can’t wait for my teenage son to grow out of his shyness towards scary rides and Halloween.

In all good fun, there really isn’t anything out there quite like Knott’s Scary Farm.
