from Knott's Scary Farm
Knott’s Scary Farm is the largest and most haunting Halloween experience in Southern California, with unimaginable scares and innovative thrills that can’t be found anywhere else. The fully transformed theme park encompasses 14 uniquely haunted mazes and attractions, sinister shows and more than 1,000 horrifying creatures lurking in the fog and hiding in every corner of the park. This year’s Knott’s Scary Farm experience has all the ingredients of a truly terrifying nightmare, but unlike most dreams, Knott’s Scary Farm is a nightmare you can’t wake up from.

The Depths A heavy fog drapes over an abandoned port village where ancient creatures lurk inside the pitch-black underground caves hidden below the seaside shores. The Nightwatch Mining Crew has mysteriously disappeared and village rumors point to the eerie tunnels the town sits upon. Myths of the terrifying horrors that lurk within the cave have often been whispered but never confirmed. Did the crew meet their demise at the hand of vicious creatures that live within the cave? Journey into the dark caverns and follow the crew’s path into The Depths and discover if the superstition revolving around the cave is true or not. But be warned! All who have entered have never resurfaced.

Knott’s Scary Farm takes place on select nights from September 19 – November 2. Due to the explicit and frightening nature of the event, it is not recommended for children under 13.

Ticket only valid for the date selected. No costumes.

I went here the day after Disneyland and was already on a high. In truth, this park is more of an adrenalin thrill with its rides than anything and I absolutely loved it. I think I went on every single level 5 ride multiple times. Again, the wait was very minimal, the park was clean and the staff were overall fairly nice. Only downside was a few rides were closed including the large wooden roller coaster and the haunted house ride. The xcelerator was like nothing I've ever experienced. All thrill seekers must visit if you do Anaheim.

This was my first visit here. The park was very quiet today. Most rides were a walk on which could be because we are coming off a holiday weekend. This park has some incredible coasters! These coasters are intense but the ride is smooth. My head did not knock around. My two favorite rides were Hang Time and Xcelerator. Wow! They were amazing. I thought the Peanuts area, which is geared toward kids, was adorable. We rode the Sidewinder in that section and it was so much fun. I loved this park. If I lived in the area I would definitely get a pass.

We visited mid week late August and we had a blast!! My 2 older boys, 12 and 9 loved all the roller coasters, while my 3 year old really enjoyed the lil kids area. Since the local schools started, we had the park to ourselves. No line ups for any of the rides. We will be back again soon!! I believe there will be more new coasters added from what the staff told me.
