In a world where COVID-19 has all but canceled our most-favorite holiday, Knott’s Berry Farm emerges as a protector – a guardian, if you will. They have managed to not only celebrate the holiday but also do it safely with the Taste of Fall-O-Ween. The Taste of Fall-O-Ween is the latest in the parks’ tasting events, which are able to circumvent orders to keep theme parks closed by not having any of the rides powered up. It’s a brilliant strategy – one which I am shocked the park down the street, with the mouse, doesn’t do. But, I digress…
The Taste of Fall-O-Ween sees Knott’s Berry Farm fully decked-out for the spooky season. Not only that, but they have brought to the fore a plethora of Halloween-inspired food items for guests to try. With the $35 dollar purchase of a tasting card (that’s your actual ticket to the event now as they cannot sell regular theme park tickets anymore), you get 5 tastings. If you’re still hungry or thirsty after that, of course you can buy additional offerings.
Here is our full video review of the experience:
The food is great, as is the overall health safety level of the event. Everyone is wearing masks and the park is being extra careful with sanitizer stations throughout the park and distancing guidelines posted everywhere. The crowds were also very respectful of the health guidelines and at no time did I feel unsafe or in danger of catching creepy crawly germs.
The only thing that could have been better about the Taste of Fall-O-Ween is if they had a scary walk-through option for the adults in addition to the kid-friendly trick or treat trail experience. That way the adults in the crowd could get their Scary Farm itch scratched slightly. Overall, Knott’s Taste of Fall-O-Ween is an outstanding spooky season event and I can’t wait to check out the park’s Merry Farm-style offering, which should be up next!
