Open weekends in October, Knott’s Spooky Farm is a brand new park wide event just for kids. With nothing scary, this Halloween bash is aimed straight at the elementary school and under crowd. Kids are invited to come in costume and enjoy some treats with Snoopy and the Peanuts Gang.
Ghost Town Treat Stops. Main Street in Ghost Town has a dozen stops for kids to ring a bell and trick-or-treat with silly characters like Drac the Undertaker and The Werewolf Barber. Spooky Farm events run from 10am-4pm, so make sure you don’t go too late and miss the treats!
Spooky Hollow Maze. Perfect for all ages, this maze has lots of photo op stops. A jack o’lantern scarecrow in a pumpkin patch, a slightly creepy forest, and a hidden skeleton in the closet provide mild Halloween fun. There is an old barn filled with cobwebs, and even a spinning room for kids to walk through. At the end of the maze, kids can decorate and take home a real pumpkin for a small fee ($5).
Monster Masquerade Ball. A cool place to stop inside and take a break from the sun. Kids can make a monster mask and sing karaoke with a mad scientist and his minion. (Bonus for parents and overheated kiddos, this place has the air conditioner running full blast!)
Creepy Crawler Cabin. Here guests can touch beetles and bugs with a Knott’s naturalist. Walking sticks, praying mantis, and other amusing critters kept the kids giggling with squeamish glee.
Monsters are Coming Charlie Brown: Camp Snoopy Theater. Be advised to get to this one early. Seats fill up quickly for this sweet treat. Lucy and the rest of the Peanuts Gang sing Halloween favorites in a cute musical show.
Snoopy’s Costume Contest and Dance Party. Show off your creative costume with a contest and then join the Peanuts Gang for a Halloween dance party.
Knott’s Spooky Farm is a perfect Halloween event for families with small children. No scares, all smiles!
