We were invited to attend a special “scare school” preview event at Knott’s Berry Farm in Buena Park, CA as they prepared for their Knott’s Scary Farm haunted attraction. We had the chance to tour a couple of their haunted houses while talent perfected their techniques (sans costumes and masks) as well as toured the wardrobe and makeup rooms, where we even caught a brief makeup demonstration. A brief stop in the action allowed us time to sample food from the very tasty Knott’s Berry Farm food truck – which you will be able to find parked over near the event’s new haunted house, Voodoo. Finally, we were shown around Knott’s Berry Farm’s Ghost Town area by Ted Dougherty, Knott’s historian and author of the book ‘Knott’s Halloween Haunt: A Picture History’. Despite the very hot and humid Southern California weather, we really liked what we saw and are looking forward to attending the park’s opening night on September 25, 2014.

Knott’s Scary Farm runs a whole host of nights, starting on September 25 and running through November 1. Tickets start at a reasonable $39 dollars each – however, there are additional ticket/pass tiers which give you various levels of access. Please check out their official website for ticket information and more – and check out our Scare School event photo gallery below!
