Welcome to Knott's Berry Farm at Halloween Knott's Scary Farm

Knott’s Scary Farm 2022 Guide: Tickets, Food, Rides and more!

Are you looking for the ultimate survivor’s guide to Halloween at Knott’s Scary Farm?

If you are like me, originally, you had no clue that Knott’s had a haunt event, let alone that it was easily one of the top 5 haunt events in the entire country.

Knott’s Berry Farm, located in Buena Park and only 10 minutes from Disneyland Resort, has the longest running theme park haunt in SOCAL. It’s in the 49th year from its 1973 debut.

The houses along with their stories and details are truly a crown jewel for the haunt and should been more widely recognized in my opinion.

Do keep in mind that I only did three houses because I went alone…silly i know!

Nonetheless, I’m thrilled to share with you everything there is to know about this ghastly event.
