This year’s Knott’s Scary Farm Map.
Wow! lots of roaming monsters as we enter that park.
New for 2019 is Wax Works.
Wax Works was Fantastic! Very fun maze.
The story behind Wax Works . “Mysterious lights and strange noises have begun to emanate from the eerie abandoned wax museum. The once prominent plastic surgeon, Dr. Augustus Scratch, has been seen tinkering at night and is now ready to show off his beautiful yet terrifying life-like masterpieces of hot molten wax and bloody flesh. It’s rumored that blood-curdling screams can be heard echoing through the halls of Wax Works as victims are horrifyingly submerged into a scorching hot cauldron of bubbling wax. Take a closer look at his gruesome works of art and try to escape his deadly grip or become the newest masterpiece to add to his collection.” – Knott’s website
The Depths. Wow! This maze is still Insanely good! There’s a Giant octopus & shark. You also walk through a ship that actually rocks back and fourth. Incredible sets. We give it a 9 out of 10. The new thing they added this year is the elevator scene where it takes you down under. The problem with this elevator pre-show is that it will slow the lines down causing huge wait time.
The story behind The Depths. “A heavy fog drapes over an abandoned port village where ancient creatures lurk inside the pitch-black underground caves hidden below the seaside shores. The Night watch Mining Crew has mysteriously disappeared and village rumors point to the eerie tunnels the town sits upon. Myths of the terrifying horrors that lurk within the cave have often been whispered but never confirmed. Did the crew meet their demise at the hand of vicious creatures that live within the cave? Journey into the ominous caverns and follow the crew’s path into The Depths, discover if the superstition revolving around the cave is true or not. But be warned! All who have entered have never resurfaced.” – Knott’s website
Scary looking shark
Paranormal Inc. – “features high flying aerial stunts and scares as guests help investigate a haunted hospital where the patients were tortured for decades by deranged doctors and nurses. Demonic spirits of the murdered victims have been detected throughout the mysterious halls, while evil medical staff prowl for new patients to torture.” – Knott’s website
The Dark Entities Maze is so much fun! It’s a pretty long maze too.
Pretty Pumpkins fountain
Scary zombie cake
Dinner time! The food was delicious!
Here are some of the delicious food offerings you guys can get during Knott’s Scary Farm.
Green funnel cake and Infected pizza
The # 1 Best Maze of the night goes to Origins: The Curse of Calico. Wow! This new maze is Outstanding! Incredible sets. Amazing scare actors. It was insanely good!
Dark Ride Maze is still good! It actually felt like you are walking into an abandoned carnival dark ride.
There are plenty of carnival ride animatronics in the Dark Ride.
Time for The Hanging Show.
“The Citizens of Calico face their fiercest foes yet, the censors; in this live stage show that looks back at the year’s pop culture with some killer comedy. Notorious for its special effects and high-flying stunts, The Hanging is a no holds barred assault on pop culture’s most infamous moments of the past year. A must-see parody!” -Knott’s website
Disney’s Main Street Electrical Parade. There are a lot of Disney reference this year in the show.
Captain Marvel and Shazem
Cool Photo op near the Puppet Up! theater
Puppet Up! a brand new show.
Exclusively performing nightly at Knott’s Scary Farm for the 2019 season, Puppet Up! Uncensored is an outrageous, off-the-cuff live show featuring a combination of improvisational comedy and the magic of puppetry performed by a cast of world-class comedian puppeteers from The Jim Henson Company. Created by legendary puppeteer and award-winning director Brian Henson and directed by Patrick Bristow (Ellen, Seinfeld, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Whose Line Is It Anyway?), Puppet Up! – Uncensored is no ordinary puppet show. In true uncensored form, the content is driven by audience suggestions and participation, topped with the zany antics and bawdy shenanigans of the colorful and brazen puppet cast. Puppet Up! – Uncensored will be performed three times each night at Knott’s Scary Farm and is intended for mature audiences and is not recommended for children. – Knott’s website
We laughed so hard during the 11:30pm show. A Must See Show this season.
The Timber Mountain Log Ride “Halloween Hootenanny” overlay is back. Unfortunately, we didn’t have time to ride it. Not sure if they have any scare actors on the ride this year.
Thanks for having us, Knott’s Berry Farm. We had a Spooktacular time.
