The Granddaddy of all Theme Park Haunts got its start on October 26th, 1973. Called Halloween Haunt, the event was put together in weeks and has grown into the largest theme park Haunt in the world. Encompassing nearly every square foot of Knott's Berry Farm, guests may find themselves immersed in a fog, tracked by monsters, or lost in a maze. The scares are plentiful and horrors innumerable! The event, now known as Knott's Scary Farm, is a rite of passage for some. And for others, it's a lifestyle!
