The 45th Season of Knott’s Scary Farm Is Where Nightmares Never End

The most haunting Halloween event in Southern California, Knott's Scary Farm, returns tonight with unimaginable scares and innovative thrills for its 45th season. The fully transformed park will feature 13 uniquely haunted mazes and attractions, including the return of Elvira, Mistress of the Dark, for her last performance as she bids farewell to the Scary Farm crowds with an all-new show.

Knott's Scary Farm is back for 25 horrifying nights from September 21 – October 31. This year's Knott's Scary Farm experience has all the ingredients of a truly terrifying nightmare, but unlike most dreams, Knott's Scary Farm is a nightmare you can't wake up from.

New for 2017:

Journey through an abandoned carnival ride where cruel carny folk still linger in the shadows in Dark Ride one of Knott’s Scary Farm’s newest maze. Survive the wrath of the murderous 7-foot tall creature that haunts the old woods surrounding The Hollow  in Pumpkin Eater. Armed with only a faulty flashlight, face the terror of the Green Witch’s house completely in the dark in Trick or Treat: Lights Out.  And every night, over 1,000 monsters spill out onto the streets and turn theme park midways into terrifying scare zones.  From the world famous Ghost Town Streets to the Boardwalk area filled with evil clowns, there's nowhere to hide at Knott's Scary Farm.

This year, the event returns September 21, 22, 23, 28, 29, 30 October 1, 5, 6, 7, 8, 12, 13, 14, 15, 19, 20, 21, 22, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31.  Knott's Scary Farm is open7:00 pm – 1:00 am select Thursdays, Sundays, Monday and Halloween Night and 7:00 pm – 2:00 am Fridays and Saturdays. Knott’s Berry Farm- 8039 Beach Boulevard, Buena Park, CA 90620
