Knott’s Scary Farm, has been a Southern California Staple for more then 35 years now.  Being the oldest Halloween Event of it’s kind it has set the bar for a new kind of annual event and some would even go as far as saying, Knott’s Scary Farm has popularized the entire holiday as well.

Knott’s Scary Farm is now in full swing with the monsters, ghouls and creeps crawling around the streets of the park.  This year’s event includes 13 mazes, 3 scare zones, and 6 shows.  Four new haunted houses have joined the line up: Terror of London, Lockdown: The Asylum, Uncle Bobo’s Big Top of the Bizarre in 3D, and Dia de los Muertos 3D.  Each has its own unique atmosphere and storyline. has great coverage of the opening night that you should really check out.  They have everything from the new mazes, to this years very lack luster “Hanging” show as well as some of the scare zones.

What really caught my attention was the detail found in the ‘Terror in London’ maze.  Above is a shot of the amazing lighting, and city scape the park achieved.  While it is really simple, it defenitely would have taken me a very long time to think about making an effect like this.  I would honestly like to see this maze become a permenant dark ride in some park as I just find it that entertaining.  The sets are well thought out and I can’t wait to find a video of it.

So does this year’s Haunt do it for you?  Leave your comments and park thoughts!  Thanks for reading.
