Written in collaboration with Knott’s Berry Farm.
While young children under 13 are not recommended for the frightful nights of Knott’s Scary Farm, they can still enjoy all the season has to offer in a daytime, family-friendly, non-scary version designed just for them on weekends in October as well as Halloween Day at Knott’s Spooky Farm! There are plenty of interactive spooky fun throughout the park including a newly expanded Trick-or-Treating experience in Ghost Town, new shows, pumpkin decorating, and costume contests with the Peanuts gang. It is included with regular park admissions so you’ll also have access to all the rides.
Kids ages 3 -11 can participate in the newly expanded trick-or-treating experience available through Ghost Town’s Main Street and Schoolhouse Road. During trick-or-treating, kids will interact with an array of spooky but friendly Shopkeepers as little ones have the opportunity to show-off their festive Halloween costumes. In Ghost Town, Stanley Scarecrow has opened the Livery Stable for guests of all ages to get close and personal with the Creepy Critters of Calico.
Whimsical jack-o-lanterns will adorn Calico Park’s surroundings as it transforms into an enchanting Pumpkin Patch location for families to enjoy the atmosphere of the season with photo ops, crafters and strolling magicians. Miniature pumpkins or Halloween cookies will be available for decorating, for a nominal fee. Linus will also be on hand at the pumpkin patch to help little ones pick out the perfect pumpkin. The Spooky Story Time at the Birdcage Theatre is where you can listen to semi haunting tales told by charismatic storytellers throughout the Halloween storylines.
Hop aboard the Grand Sierra Railroad to experience a one-of-a-kind adventure with A Trip to Camp Spooky as riders travel with the PEANUTS Gang® and spot 2D and 3D Halloween themed characters and effects along the trail. Little ghouls and gals can show off their Halloween costume at the Peanuts Costume Contest, then stay for the PEANUTS Dance Party. Watch the Peanuts Gang in “The Monsters Are Coming, Charlie Brown,” where they’ll have guests of all ages singing and dancing along to classic Halloween tunes. Charlie Brown, his best friend Snoopy and the beloved PEANUTS Gang will all be celebrating the spooky holiday with their own Halloween costumes and will be available for special meet & greets and fun photo encounters in Camp Snoopy and Calico Park.
Timber Mountain Log Ride
“Mysterious creatures of Timber Mountain that live out in the woods and caverns join the citizens as they honor the season at the Halloween Hootenanny. The ride’s interior will feature fun surprises as guests venture past the Calico Coffin Creeper band, the town’s green witch and splash down Skull Mountain through a labyrinth of jack-o-lanterns. The seasonal ride will also feature an original song performed by Krazy Kirk and the Hillbillies.”
