I started going to Knott’s Scary Farm back in, well, back when I was almost 14 years old. It was a blast and I’ve loved it ever since. Now, all those years later, being able to go to media preview nights and see the behind-the-scenes details is such a treat!
Knott’s Scary Farm 2015 is going to be another amazing season. This year includes:
3 Scare Zones
13 Thrill Rides
Many of your favorites are back — the Tooth Fairy, the Green Witch, Carnevil — with the addition of new things as well, including new skeleton key rooms and one maze that has a blackout zone where you have to feel your way out. I’ve included a few videos below to give you a sneak peek at what you can expect!
The Paranormal crew is one of the new things and based on this little clip, I’m so excited to see what else they have planned!
What do you think about that??
Jeff Tucker filled us in on all the fantastic scary things they have carefully chosen to make 2015 the scariest and most fun Knott’s Scary Farm yet. He was rolled in on a dolly, in fact, a la Hannibal Lecter from “Silence of the Lambs” and the preview event only got more entertaining from there, all the way through when he walked off the stage with Clementine from another new attraction, My Bloody Clementine.
Back story on Clementine: she and her family are brutally murdered inside the Calico Mine while visiting, and their spirits haven’t left. You’ll need to visit her on the Calico Mine Ride, which, for the first time EVER, has live ghosts inside!! My favorite attraction last year was Special Ops: Infected, with Trick or Treat being a very close second, but I have always wanted live talent inside the Calico Mine Ride so this has me really excited!
This guy may have been her friend.
Guys, let me eat!! I almost dropped my plate so many times.
Such an array of scary food but my personal favorite was the white chocolate skull filled with boysenberry mousse. They also had it available with a Frankenstein head filled with pistachio mousse. Green food though…
If you tried Special Ops: Infected last year, you’ll remember how you were trained and handed a weapon, then sent on your way to kill zombies. This year, the maze is twice is long, has a lot more zombies AND maybe even cooler, new weapons! They score your kills, your health takes a hit and when you run out of health, you have to find a health recharging station before you can go on your way. How cool is that? I’m both scared and intrigued at the same time!
