Southern California is very well known for its history of horror. From the Universal Monsters to the haunted Queen Mary, there are plenty of reasons to love this season. One of the best is the transformation of Snoopy’s playground, Knott’s Berry Farm into Knott’s Scary Farm. Come along as we delve into the upcoming 45th anniversary of this Orange County Halloween extravaganza.

Knott’s Scary Farm consists of 13 diabolical attractions and mazes. The Trick or Treat maze is updated as the new Lights Out maze. Explore the shadows of a creepy house with a flickering flashlight completely out of your control. Undead samurai will chase you through the savage Shadowlands maze. Will this terrifying Japanese temple be your final resting ground?

Hopefully we will see the return of the slasher loving Red Barn maze. One can never have enough cannibalistic hillbillies swinging chainsaws & hatchets in your face. Who remembers the blood curdling hell of the backwoods bayou in Voodoo: Order of the Serpent?

Alongside the monster filled mazes are Knott’s truly terrifying shows. Fiesta de la Muertos celebrates the beautiful & haunting history of Latin America respect for the dead. And maybe the biggest announcement this year is that the Queen of Scream, Elvira, will be taking a final curtain call. This year will be the final performance for the Mistress of the Dark.

Not everything has been announced, so stay tuned to all of Knott’s Scary Farm’s social media. Although we have 45 years of Halloween haunts in the history books, Knott’s Scary Farm 2017 is looking to be the spookiest year yet.
