2012 marks the 40th Anniversary of Knott’s Scary Farm and the park is readying for the biggest Halloween Haunt in its history.  Knott’s will hire over 1,000 monsters for the 24 night event which starts September 21.  To fill their monster quota Knott’s will be conducting two hiring events to insure the scare factor remains high.

An open call to all those who have ever aspired to scare are invited down to fill positions for maze monsters, black outs, and line control.  No previous monster experience required.
