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.

It was nice to see that there weren't too much changes to the park and it more or less stayed to its origins. The Halloween decoration was quite nice and the lines were not so bad that you had to wait a long time to get in a ride. Things and places change with the times but it is refreshing when it doesn't take them away too much from their origins. We look forward to visiting Knotts Merry Farm and their Christmas decorations and shows.

Very happy with Knotts Berry Farm, great park for a birthday of any age and very decent hours. Well laid out and ample rest areas for the parents. Knotts is laid by and very inviting. We very much enjoyed our visit and will return for Merry Farm and other trips in the near future. The staff are fantastic and helpful.

There is so much to do for everyone. It’s good for cheap thrills. (Relatively cheap, when compared to its neighbor Disneyland) However with that being said, you definitely get what you pay for. Christmas season is my favorite, it snows and Santa is there.

The day we went, there were few queues and getting on to most rides was quite quick and easy. We were able to ride some rides a couple of times and just enjoyed ducking from ride-to-ride. Staff were great, including helping us when there was an error in our tickets. The bus dropped us at the front door from the Disney stop and it was worth every cent. May be it is a case of "pick your days" because we had no difficulty at all getting on any ride and we had a great time.
