  • Trip Report Knotts Scary Farm Halloween Haunt 9/24

    I went to Halloween Haunt on the 24th and this was the best Haunt I've been too. I was for the most part, alone and being alone was a magnet for the maze monsters.

    I went through all of the mazes and saw the Hanging. Below is the review of all the mazes:

    Endgames: Warriors of the Apocalypse (2 times) 5/5



    This is a really good maze and the tv monitors around the maze provide a view to areas you were previously in. Suprisingly, the maze was a walk on the whole night (at least whenever I walked past it)

    Lockdown (2 times) 4/5

    This maze is still an intense maze as it was the past 2 years.



    Delirium (2 times) 5/5







    The one who created this maze really went all out with this one. The design of the maze really made it look like you entered your worst nightmare. The bug room really grossed me out and the eyes were really creepy.

    Cornstalkers (once) 4/5



    I waite till the final hour to go to this maze as the line was long for me. Seemed pretty scary as it was when I went through it 2 years ago. The AA at the end was really impressive.

    Doll Factory: 5/5 (4 times)



    The monsters were really into it this year seeing as this is the final year of Doll Factory. This will be always my favorite maze after it is gone.

    Terror of London: 5/5 (3 times)

    All 3 times I was alone in the maze and everyone in the maze pretty much scared me the whole duration of the maze. Every time I reach the end, there was someone following me until I reached the exit of the maze. My 2nd favorite maze

    Virus Z: 5/5 (1 time)

    My 3rd favorite maze. Taking into acount that I played plenty of zombie games, the zombies were really freaky to me. Best scare moment was in the theater portion.

    Fallout Shelter : 3/5 (1 time)

    The maze was still good, but the monsters didn't seem active in this maze.

    Uncle Bobo's Big Top of the Bizzare: 4/5 (1 time)

    Clowns just love me. Nuff said. The 3-D is trippy.

    Dia De Los Muertos: 3/5 (1 time)

    Like Fallout, not much was going on, the 3-D wasn't even noticable.

    Invasion Beneath: 1/5 (1 time)

    Poor execution. Too many soldiers and 0 creatures. Needs creatures to balance out the soldiers.

    Slaughter House: 4/5 (1 time)

    A really decent maze. The thought of a human meat store still freaks me out.

    The Hanging: Calico and Aliens 5/5

    With the release of Cowboys and Aliens, it made a perfect theme for this years hanging. Notable insults included:

    1.) Obama and his birth certificate and Osama Bin Laden
    2.) The Little Mermaid Ride at DCA and POTC 4
    3.) Justin Beiber coming back from the dead and shot 3 times (he was last years hanging victim)
    4.) Charlie Sheen













    I thought of 3 possible people that could be hanged:

    1. Charlie Sheen
    2. Casey Anthony
    3. Rebecca Black

    And the winner was.....



    REBECCA BLACK!!!! The parody of "Friday" was really funny!

        Surprisingly it was empty for the 2nd night of Haunt. As I indicated, Endgames had no line at all. By 1am, the park was so empty that every maze was a walk on.

          Thanks for the great report. I also been waiting for some review.

          Man. I shouldn't have looked at the Hanging photos, now I know what to expect.

          I will be going to Knotts this upcoming Thursday the 29th. First time going on a Thursday, hoping that there would be extremely less crowd and that everything would be a walk-on including the rides.

            you'll find the crowds to be very light, and that's both a blessing and a curse. light crowds means you'll be able to walk into any maze you want at any time most likely..however, less crowds = less motivation for the monsters who do really thrive off a good sized crowd
            Will there be screams when the sun sets,

                  The second night of haunt was empty?!?!?!?!?! There is no way. That is prety scary in itself. At Universal our second night we nearly sold out. The last group of people walked through our maze around 2:15am.
                  Well my dad and I will be at Knott's tomorrow to check out what they are offering, (have not been in 2 years, went to Universal and was blown away) so if it's not busy Ill be happy because I will be able to hit all the mazes 3/4 times.

                    I know right? Most of the mazes had barely a line and even if, you weren't in line longer than 5 minutes. I waited in line for both Lockdown/Delirium and Virus Z and It was barely 5 minutes before I went into the maze.

                        I adored your trip report and completely agree with your maze reviews. The Mine Ride tanked, but the rest were wonderful! I've heard great things about Ed Alonzo's Psycho Circus, but I totally missed it. I'll likely go back for more Haunt and hope to see that stage show.

                        My biggest gripe about Haunt this year, and just can't seem to let go of this complaint, is the map. The Haunt map is horrible! It's the worst Haunt map Knott's has ever produced! The Haunted Attraction logos are mostly unreadable as they're printed in black on a black background. Some logos are low-res and pixelated, including the Knott's Scary Farm logo itself. To make it worse, the map wasn't spell-checked and is filled with typos! Gyspy! Sleepy Hallow! Phycho! Really?! And with its tiny, thin type there's no way to read it in the dark streets of Knott's Scary Farm anyway.

                        I adore Halloween Haunt, but abhor this year's map. I'd rather ride Invasion Beneath than find one more typo in the danged thing.

                          Turns out I was premature on my Invasion Beneath review. The In The Parks update revealed that the Mine ride ran into a snag before opening night. They did rework it so I might have to return and then give a better review.

                            I worked in Mine Ride last year, the huge advantage of working Mine Ride was that it would break down very often lol.
