Knott’s #ScaryFarm 2014

My heart is finally getting back to normal and my legs are not as sore anymore. Last Saturday, we made a trip to Knott’s Berry Farm for Knott’s #ScaryFarm 2014.  This is one event that I look forward to every single year.  It’s all fun and games, and like I’ve mentioned before, it’s always a blast when you go with the right “open-minded” people.

Why go to Scary Farm?

If you grew up in SoCal, then you know about Knott’s Scary Farm.  During my teen years, I went year after year. I have many fond memories going to the park and getting the pants scared off of me. Since that time of youth, Scary Farm has changed for the better. It’s become the premier Halloween event.  You should go to have a great time. Date night is always fun as you can cling and hang on to the love of your life as you get spooked by a monster. For me, going with a group of friends is always best.

Should you take your kids to #ScaryFarm?

What’s new this year?

Special Ops Infected:

A MUST! Infected seamlessly integrates interactive gaming technology with an immersive mountainous landscape, delivering a breakthrough interactive haunted experience that is as terrifying as it is challenging. In other words, it’s like laser tag, but no one is shooting back at you.  Keep in mind that you will be running. Camp Snoopy is converted into a mission field where you either give into your fears or survive. Oh, and you’ll have the time of your life.

  • I would recommend you do this first. Why? It’s super popular. You have 2 options. There’s a stand-by line and another line that you have access through a set time.
  • When you first get to the park, go can meet several park employees that have passes with set times for you to visit Infected.  Once they’re out, they’re out!
  • Don’t take too much to the park! If you can go with a back pack, perfect!  If you plan on doing Infected, you’ll be carrying a gun. Yes, it’s plastic, but it’s bulky and heavy!

My favorite New Maze!

Tooth Fairy

The Tooth Fairy:  I’m sure we all remember the joy of hiding a lost tooth under the pillow.  Well, this is nothing like it. AT ALL. 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. This was a super fun maze. Lot’s of surprises at every turn!

Make your visits more pleasant:

Skeleton Key Rooms: These are special rooms that offer a different experience for guests. You need special access to these rooms.  There is an extra charge for the Skeleton Key Rooms.

Fast Lane: This is something that I truly recommend. Especially if you’re going on the weekends. Fast Lane passes offer you front of the line access. Essentially, you’ll be able to bypass the looooong lines and get into the mazes and rides faster.

Hotel Packages: Knott’s Hotel offers Scary Farm fans who wish to turn a night of thrills into a full-service weekend getaway. All packages are based on double occupancy and are subject to availability. Call the Knott’s Hotel at (714) 995-1111 or (866) 752-2444 for reservations; reference the package names below:

See! All for the fun of Halloween. This is a fun-filled, easy-going event. I must stress that this is not recommended for children 13 and under, so start working out a babysitter!
