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 Trick-or-Treat stations, live shows, costume contest with the Peanuts gang, and a Dia De Los Muertos Celebration. It is included with regular park admissions so you’ll also access to all the rides. Kids ages 3-11 can pick up a treat bag at the main gate with a guided map. Take a look so you can plan your day accordingly. I think most will want to do the Treat Stops first so it could get crowded.
There are five in Ghost Town and the ghostly Shopkeepers are friendly. Stop into the Livery Stable to visit creepy crawly critters like snakes, rats, spiders, a bearded dragon, and the Headless Horseman’s horse. Stanley Scarecrow is hanging out in a web at the entrance to greet you. There are fun added Halloween effects in Camp Spooky. I love the costumes the gang is wearing this year. Stay after the show for photo opportunities. The Timber Mountain Log Ride has been transformed into a Halloween Hootenany. Does your child like to decorate pumpkins? They’re available at the Ghost Town Pumpkin Patch for a nominal fee. They change it up a little every year, and my kids always have a blast!
“The Grand Sierra Railroad in Camp Snoopy transforms to a one-of-a-kind experience which takes riders on an adventure, along with the Peanuts Gang, to Camp Spooky with added special Halloween theming effects. Then come to Camp Snoopy Theatre to show off your best Halloween costume at the Peanuts Costume Contest and afterwards, join Peanuts characters in a Peanuts Dance Party! Additionally, families can 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.”

TIMBER MOUNTAIN LOG RIDE HALLOWEEN HOOTENANNY
“This Halloween season, the Timber Mountain Log Ride mystically converts into the Halloween Hootenanny by adding a new family friendly twist to a park favorite. Every year the citizens of the Timber Mountain invite the mysterious creatures that live out in the woods and caverns of the area to join them as they celebrate the season at the Halloween Hootenanny. The ride’s interior will feature new 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. Open for day and night guests, this is the perfect family experience for all to enjoy this Halloween season.”
DIA DE LOS MUERTOS CELEBRATION
“Join the Dia de Los Muertos Celebration in the Fiesta Stage area in Fiesta Village for an interactive, non- scary, educational celebration of the season. The themed area offers a walk through village filled with photo ops, educational activities and face paintings at a nominal fee.”
