Scary-Farm-Scares-Pass
*Lets you come back every night for only $80.
*Parking? If you plan on coming at least 4 times be sure to add it to your pass. A pass with parking costs $140. Parking is $20 a Night at Scary Farm otherwise.  So it is totally worth it to add it to your pass if you plan on coming 4 or more nights.  If you already have a parking pass, it will still be good on Scary Farm Nights.

It’s HERE! Knott’s Scary Farm is here in full scare mode for the Halloween season. This year’s Knott’s Scary Farm is stirring up unique and freakish experiences along with show-stopping entertainment, and the all new, not to be missed Special Ops: Infected, where guests fight zombies in an interactive six acre war, and the return of Elvira – Mistress of the Dark in an all-new stage show. Knott’s Scary Farm is Infected!

But first, I want to show you a little behind the scenes look as last week I was able to get a sneak peak at the monsters, zombies and all the rest at scare school, practicing getting their moves down just right to be the best they can be for all of us mortals.

We also got a peek into where the monsters all go to for all of their haunt fittings.

A lot of hard work goes into bringing Scary Farm to us each year, which is why it just keeps getting better and better! Now, what’s new for this year you may ask? Lots of awesomely scary and interactive delights!

Hunt Zombies in an All-Out War in Infected!

Infected
There is an infestation of zombies who threaten mankind’s existence in Infected. It is up to YOU to help save mankind! You will be armed with specially designed laser guns, as you travel along with a brave group of souls and embark on missions, led by  a Squad Leader – a loud mouthed, take-no-prisoners commander charged with turning guests into soldiers. You must work together to fend off zombies and complete various missions before time runs out. If zombies drag their bodies too close, the un-infected’s guns temporarily deactivate, compromising the safety of the entire team. Soldiers with the deadliest aim will be celebrated with a tally of the number of zombies killed on a display board for other survivors to see each night in base camp. Missions will take you through a variety of wilderness terrains, including the unpredictable barrel bridges across the rushing river, through the dark caverns, and through mysterious backwoods. Six acres of the beloved theme park is now home to mutinous, scream-inducing zombies, and the time has come for a harrowing Special Ops survival mission! Are you up for the challenge?

Knott’s Halloween Haunt & Scary Farm 2013 Preview! #ScaryFarm

Knott’s Halloween Haunt 2013 Preview!

By: Erin

Disclosure: This is not a sponsored post. I was invited out by the Knott’s PR/Social Team to preview this event. All thoughts and opinions remain my own.

Have you been to the Scary Farm? If you have, then you know the excitement and planning that goes into it every year and how frightful it can be. The other week, I had the pleasure of attending Knott’s Scary Farm 2013′Preview/Media event.

Knott's Scary Farm

As the 41st year of the Knott’s Scary Farm Haunt creeps up on us, with all it’s guts and glory, it is exciting to announce what’s in store for this treasured Haunt!  The 41st year of this annual Haunt promises more fright, more fun, more foreboding than the past 40 years have wrought. What is there already for this year’s haunt you ask? Read below to find out!

Mortals who were there to announce this years tales from the crypt:

  • Jeff Tucker – Supervisor of Live Shows
  • Brooke Walters – (Design Supervisor) Designer of Haunt mazes such as Doll Factory, Virus Z, Terro Dominion of the Dead, Trick or Treat
  • Lara Hanneman – (Director of Entertainment Production)
  • Daniel Miller –  (Design Specialist) Pinocchio Unstrung,  Delirium, Black Magic
  • Timothy “Gus” Krueger – (Design Specialist)  Uncle Willy’s Slaughterhouse, Dia de los Muertos, Endgame

Returning Mazes:

  1. Trick Or Treat: Ummmm I don’t think I’d really want to go Trick or Treating here! Trick Or Treating in a witches house? No Thanks! 😉
  2. Pinocchio: Unstrung – Murderous marionettes seeks the flesh of maze visitors to cover Pinocchio’s twisted, wooden body. Sounds like some twisted puppet string fun?
  3. Delirium – The stuff that nightmares and insanity is made of. Fun times right? Maybe if you like being scared… 😉
  4. Uncle Willy’s Slaughterhouse – This just sounds wrong. A deranged butcher runs a barbecue restaurant? Don’t think I’d want to eat at this restaurant!
  5. End Games – Gladiators battle to the death for the entertainment of the rich and powerful. Some good clean gory fun never hurt anyone, right?

What would the Halloween Haunt be without the Knott’s Design Team using their haunted twisted powers to create a few NEW terrifying mazes to spook the living daylights out of you. All in the name of fun of course. 😉
