Oh, Knott's Berry Farm, you have such a special place in our hearts. Knott's Berry Farm has been a part of our lives for the past four years, across all seasons, holidays and for numerous events. The love we have for Knott's all started right here, four years ago at Knott's Spooky Farm.
Over the years, Knott's Spooky Farm has changed and evolved into the celebration that it is today. When we attended for our first year, all of the festivities were located within Camp Snoopy and included a spooky science lab and a not-so-haunted house. Little by little it has spread and now the family friendly festivities are spread throughout the entire park.
The Fall decor welcomes everyone to the season and it's hard to imagine that after hours, Knott's transforms into something creepy and scary and terrifying... Knott's Scary Farm. Maybe next year I'll be old enough to visit Knott's Scary Farm... maybe. For now, I'm good with spending family time with my girls while we celebrate the season with Knott's Spooky Farm.
Ghost Town... Ghosts!
Ghost Town Alive was definitely one of our highlights from this Summer. As sad as we were to see the citizens of Ghost Town go away, luckily for us, they came right back out in time for Halloween, this time, as Ghosts! As the kids trick-or-treat through Ghost Town, you will see the Ghosts of Ghost Town wander and will even stop and tell you stories.
Haha! I love this picture! I don't think she knows exactly what she was being measured for, but she is very happy about it. That smile may be that there was a trick-or-treat station to the right of her.
Livery Stable Creepy Crawlers
Make sure to stop in to the Livery Stable and say hello to Stanley Scarecrow, the horses and a bunch of the Creepy Critters of Calico. While we visited, we were able to touch worms and cockroaches and even pet rats. Later, while searching the #KnottsSpookyFarm hashtag, I saw some friends hanging with giant snakes and glow-in-the-dark scorpions.
Spooky Camp Snoopy
Since I know you’ll be wandering through Camp Snoopy anyway, make sure to check your watch and keep an eye on the show times because you don’t want to miss the Peanuts Costume Contest, Peanuts Dance Party and the classic show, The Monsters are Coming, Charlie Brown. WARNING: You will get some classic Halloween songs in your head for the rest of the day. Get ready to go home singing, Monster Mash.
Dia de los Muertos, Fiesta Village
Last year, Knott’s added the Dia de Los Muertos Celebration to Fiesta Village and it was one of my favorite parts of Knott’s Spooky Farm. The whole village is bright and colorful and set-up beautifully. Both kids and parents can walk through the area for an interactive, non-scary, educational celebration of the season. Oh! and check out the little shop stations set up from local vendors and artists, pick up some one of a kind creations to take home.
The Ghastly Gallery in the Boardwalk Ballroom has a fun interactive live show and arts and crafts.
Fun Photo Ops are pretty much everywhere. I like to find members of the Peanuts Gang dressed up in their costumes.
The Pumpkin Patch at Calico Town Square has photo ops, music and crafts. You can purchase a small pumpkin for $5 with stations to decorate with googly eyes and glitter glue.
Look out for Skull Mountain and the Timber Mountain Log Ride, which mystically converted into the Halloween Hootenanny.
Oh and the special treats! Keep an eye out for special Halloween treats like orange and cookie crumble Dippin' Dots, a Funnel Cake with gummy worms and a pumpkin flavored churro.
