Knott's Scary Farm is just around the corner.
If you're a Southern California native or resident, then you know what Knott's Scary farm is. For those of you that aren't familiar with it, let me tell you what this is all about.
Knott's Scary Farm is an event put together by the Knott's Berry Farm folks. Now you understand the name right?
I'm heading to their opening night on the 24th and you should too. This is what's going on.
What to Expect This Year at Knott's Scary Farm
From what I understand, the "scare staff" will do what they can to scare you and there are special events and attractions. I am going to check one specific one. It's one of their newest attractions and it only runs a limited times each night so you have to get reservations.
It's called Special Ops: Infected - Patient Zero, check out this video.
But first let me come clean and confess! I have never been to Knott's Scary Farm. In 20 years that I've lived here, I've never been to it. That's about to change this year. This just looks like too much fun!
It seems like the main reason to check out Knott's Scary Farm is the mazes. Special Ops: Infected is a maze, so your purpose is to get "out of it alive" I guess. Besides Special Ops, they have 10 more mazes and in addition to that, the rest of the park still runs as normal.
Well, not really normal because everything gets converted to Knott's scary Farm and this lasts for just over a month, from September 24 to October 31. Instead of normal, I should just say that the rest of the park remains open and you can enter at your own risk!
I already have my tickets, but you can get your own at Knott's Scary Farm. Apparently the Special Ops fills out and sells out quickly so get them early!
Want to really get into it?
Check this out, Knott's Berry Farm recently had an official announcement about what's to come during Knott's Scary Farm 2015. It's a good video to get you excited:
Around time 19:40, you get insights into the Special Ops: Infected Patient Zero. What's new about it, what has changed and the fact that we get double the zombie and you have to "re-spawn" if you die at a designated zone.
All the new improvements should make it that much more fun.
Following the little introductory story about Special Ops, we find out they have a western-themed maze called Gunslinger's Grave which should also be fun!
I don't think you could do all 11 mazes in one visit but we'll try our best. Hope to see you there and don't forget to get tickets before they sell out. Get tickets and find out more here.
Have you been there before? Have any advice? Any tips?
