What to expect from Knott’s Scary Farm 2014

It’s almost that time again when Knott’s Scary Farm haunts the Orange County amusement park. The biggest announcements is Special Ops: Infected, where guests will be able to shoot zombies in an interactive six acre war. Elvira – Mistress of the Dark will also be returning for her all-new stage show.

Special Ops: Infection

I had a lot of fun at the Haunted Hollywood Sport event, where you can shoot zombies inside mazes with airsoft rifles or laser guns. Now I’m eager to check out what Knott’s Scary Farm can offer for their zombie attraction. In Knott’s Special Ops: Infection, guests will be armed with a laser gun and will be led by a squad leader. They will be tasked with fending off zombies while trying to complete missions before the time runs out. If a zombie is close to you, your gun will be deactivated temporarily. The missions will cover different areas in the wilderness terrains including barrel bridges, dark caverns and backwoods. The best news is that the attraction doesn’t require any additional costs.

The Return of Elvira – Ring-Mistress of the Park

Elvira returns in a new show, Elvira’s Big Top. She’ll be hosting two times every night during Knott’s Scary Farm as guests will get to see all kinds of side show acts and circus freaks. The Academy of Villains, as seen on Fox’s So You Think You Can Dance?, will also be performing.

Haunted Season Pass

If you love Knott’s Scary Farm and want to visit as much as you can, you can get the Haunted Season Pass, a first for the park. Guests will be able to get unlimited visits for the entirety of the Haunted run. Only a limited number of passes are available to current 2014 Knott’s Berry Farm Season Passholders for $65 (plus taxes and fees) at knotts.com.

There will be three new mazes along with 7 returning mazes.


Trudge cautiously through the cursed swamps of the Deep South, where creatures search the murky bogs for their next bloody sacrifice and demons curse the innocent with Voodoo hexes. Guests must choose their path from a number of foreboding choices, resulting in a different terrifying outcome with each journey into the swamp.

The Tooth Fairy

The joy of hiding a lost tooth under the pillow becomes a nightmare of pain and blood in this new maze that will leave teeth chattering. This twisted tooth fairy steals more than just baby teeth as he drags his victims out their bedroom window and into a world of deranged dentistry. Unbelievable special effects include a blackout room through which guests must feel their way out, a disorienting x-ray strobe light room, and a final encounter with the massive tooth fairy, himself. Say aahhh.

Trapped: Lock and Key

This year Trapped returns with more rooms, more intricate puzzles and a shocking finale more extreme than any experience ever presented at Knott’s Scary Farm. You become part of the terror and are forced to face your darkest fears, confront your inner terrors and descend into the madness of a maze with no way out. Trapped is not for the squeamish as the challenges are darker and more terrifying than any that have come before. (Additional fee and reservation required.)

The returning mazes are Trick-or-Treat, Black Magic, Forevermore, The Gunslinger’s Grave, Dominion of the Damned, Pinocchio Unstrung, and The Witch’s Keep.

One of my favorite things to do at Knott’s is watch The Hanging. It’s a live show that pokes fun at pop culture and includes stunts, death and mayhem. Watch this parody as you see the likes of Justin Bieber get the ax.
