As travelers prepare to make Halloween plans, Southern California’s Knott's Berry Farm is commemorating the spooky time of year with five new haunted attractions at its annual Knott's Scary Farm between Sept. 22 and Oct. 31.
With a total of 13 haunted attractions, Knott's Scary Farm guests will have a mix of classic horror mazes and scare zones, plus five new attractions, including Black Ops: Infected, Shadow Lands, Red Barn, The Hollow and Standalone Skeleton Key Rooms.
The most interesting addition for 2016 is the Black Ops: Infected interactive maze that thrusts guests into a zombie apocalypse. Using laser guns, people are transported into a video game world where real-time scoring, kill streak rewards and interactive targets make the terrifying nature of zombies more fun. Like laser tag, but only with zombies.
In addition, there will be two new mazes and a new scare zone. Shadow Lands is an attraction based on the story of soldiers trying to attack guests since they are stuck in purgatory, and the Red Barn gore maze will send guests inside a barn to be met by the evil farmer. As for the new scare zone attraction, The Hollow, it will send people into a six-acre area filled with the army of the Headless Horseman focused on terrifying guests.
Another exciting set of attractions being added this year are the Standalone Skeleton Key Rooms. Each Skeleton Key Room will feature a unique story and theme, including rooms dubbed Visions, ZOZO, Slasher and Prey.
With eight other major attractions and Knott's Scary Farm being the 2016 home of legendary horror icon Elvira, the amusement park is the ideal place to spend Halloween in Southern California.
