Time Out says

Evenings around Halloween, Knott's Berry Farm transforms into Knott's Scary Farm, with more than 1,000 monsters roaming 10 mazes, four "scare zones" and two live shows. It's one of the largest (and oldest) Halloween events held at a theme park and includes the classic Elvira, Mistress of the Dark, for a twice-nightly big top show.

I’ve been a to Knott’s Scary a few times and each time is a great and different experience! They have people dressed in costume walking around the park and purposely trying to scare you – which is especially effective in the areas of the park where the fog machines are heavy and you can’t see. They also aren’t supposed to touch you either but some of them do (so be prepared!)

The long lines for the haunted houses and the roller coasters are worth the wait. They also let you purchase and drink beer in the park – so plan ahead when you drink a lot of beer and wait in long lines! You’ll totally have to pee.

They have pizza, Pandas, Johnny Rockets, etc in the park. I usually run to In-N-Out beforehand since it’s cheaper than park prices and gives me time to digest my food before I go in the park and ride a rollercoaster. Parking is $20.

Totally a good time! 

This is a fun place for teenagers and adults. It is definitely scary. I would recommend splurging and purchasing the fast pass lane tickets, because wait time can get up to two hours for each attraction.

this is one of my favorite haunts of all time. Knotts 40th haunt had much to be afraid of and there is a scare at every corner...LITERALLY. Every year there is much more to fear.
