Knott’s Scary Farm Preview with Elvira and Special Ops: Infected
Elvira started off the one hour announcement followed by maze designers sharing about the newest mazes, updated mazes, scare zones and shows.
The Skeleton Key is something we kept hearing about as if it was an insider’s club. Besides priority access, it is the key to a secret extra room inside 5 of the mazes.
One of the unique experiences we look forward to most is the Special Ops: Infected. Forget the movies and forget the videos games, you’re able to experience zombies as you travel through 6 acres of haunted terrains, led by a squad leader with a mission to exterminate zombies that threaten mankind with specially designed laser guns. Elvira returns in her latest show “Elivira’s Big Top”. The mistress of the dark is joined by “The Academy of Villains” from reality show “So You Think You Can Dance?” The other show, “The Hanging” parodies pop culture.
Fiesta de los Muertos, Gypsy Camp, Ghost Town Streets and CarnEvil are the four themed scare zones. Fiesta de los Muertos, celebrating the Day of the Dead is a dance party zone. Gypsy Camp brings fortune tellers and the howling of werewolves. Ghost Town Street is a given with Knott’s western theme and is rather eerie with the heavy fog and lurking monsters. CarnEvil brings out the evil clowns.
Trapped: Lock & Key, The Tooth Fairy and Voodoo are 3 new mazes. Trapped: Lock & Key will challenge and is intended to totally scare you. In hearing about it, we knew this would be the ultimate challenge as you become part of the terror in being trapped. It requires reservations. The Tooth Fairy challenges your nightmares of the dentist. Voodoo brings zombies and the cursed swamps of New Orleans to life.
Halloween may seem to be coming early, but if you’ve been visiting retailers you know it’s just around the corner. Be prepared to be scared, it’s Knott’s Scary Farm.
