  • Halloween Haunt at Knott's...

    OK, folks, I know how badmouthing The Farm is sort of a hobby around these boards, but I thought I'd ask and see how many of us are planning on hitting Knott's Scary Farm this year. Any Haunt regulars on these boards? Fess up! Be honest!
    Honor those who fall under the sword.

    I went once, 12 or 13 years ago. I had a blast. I would love to go again, maybe when The Boy is a tad bit older.

      We are going to go to the Haunt on this trip south. We'll be there on the first Thursday night that it's open. First real visit to Knotts And the Haunt. I am Sooo excited!!
      Any tips for a first timer? My daughter is almost 14, I'd love to see the crud get scared out of her but good!

        Haunt advice: eat at the pre-scare buffet. You get in 1/2 hour early! You can seriously hit some mazes befor the onsluaght of humanity enters the park. the spooks are really fresh at that time and primed to scare!
        Then just hit the mazes and see some of the shows. Don't forget to ride Ghost Rider roller coaster. I swear there are no brakes on that thing during haunt.

        One las thing: last year BK offered discounts for tickets. Make sure you go to a local BK and check it out. Substantial savings on tickets. :captain:

              Unless you've never ridden a particular ride, and don't think you'll be able to for a long time, don't ride any rides in the park until you've hit every maze, scare zone, and the two themed rides (Log Ride and Calico Mie Ride). Hit the themed rides first, and the newest mazes right after that, because they'll have the longest lines throughout the night.
              The last time I went during Halloween, The log ride seemed to be the most popular.

              Oh and bring a girlfriend with you, They'll probably be hanging onto you tight by the end of the night courtesy of the monsters that roam the park LOL :ap:

                The log ride is pretty popular. Plus it loads quite slowly, which makes matters worse...

                Cassandra Peterson (Elvira) has a lot of different issues keeping her from doing the park. Her last season she became ill and had to cancel some of the performances. She's a sweet lady, though. Spoke with her a few times when building the sets. and she's very nice, and quite a lovely lady... It's a shame she's gone.

                  She really does seem to be a nice, gorgeous, free spirited woman. I love how she makes her jokes seem dirty when they are not. That's funny. Yeah, but when i saw her show, even though she was not talking directly to me, I felt like we were as close as family. :ap:

                    We are going on Oct. 14th.

                    We have the whole day planned out.

                    DL in the morning (Haunted Mansion Holiday will be open).

                    Knott's in the afternoon. This way we get all of the rides in during non-haunt (Extremely dead, pun intended) hours.

                    Nap in the Hotel (Thanks to Priceline for $50 at the Garden Grove Marriot)

                    Back to Knott's at 6:00 for Pre-Haunt and the rest of the night at Haunt where we don't need to worry about any rides except for the Log and Mine Rides. Leaves more time for mazes.

                      That'll be one looong day, Clinksalot! I'd always recommend the 5:30 pre-scare dinner, but I think you'll need the sleep!

                        ^ Eh, that's nothing.

                        Our first day back east next month looks like this:

                        Fly into Philly at 9:00pm on thursday. Drive to Bethesda, MD (about 2 hours). Sleep until 7:00am get on the Subway and go into DC.

                        Spend 4 or 5 hours in the "Mall" area then go back to our hotel for freshening up.

                        Drive 3 hours to Busch Gardens Williamsburg. Stay at Busch Gardens until 10:00pm, then drive back to our hotel.

                        We then have to be up at 7:00am the next day for another full day.

                        We are used to it though.

                          Well, anyone who goes, let me know when you do, I'll be sure to crank it up a notch in my maze (Curse of the Spider)!

                              I love Scarry Farm! I never miss a year! I now have a bunch of friends that I got hooked on it and we plan on going this year. I heard from Knotts workers that its BEST to go early on, like the first few days. The park is empty and the monsters are not yet warn out
