We have a nice little update from Knotts Berry Farm for you today. Plus, the launch of ticket sales for MiceChat’s HUGE Scary Farm event on September 28th. We also update you on the visible progress on the upcoming mazes, Black Magic and Gunslinger’s Grave. But that’s not all. It seems that Windseeker’s woes just won’t quit as rumors point to a sad fate for the attraction. And finally, Knott’s seems to be trying a new game at select attractions that we will tell you about too.
Come, if you dare, into the fog-shrouded streets of Ghost Town for the 7th annual MiceChat Knott’s Scary Farm Halloween Haunt 2013. Leave the real world and enter a spooky dream-land of frightening fun with hundreds of your MiceChat friends.
For the one small price of $99.99* you get the following
- Admission into Knott’s Scary Farm
- Backstage tour of the new Gunslinger’s Grave maze before the event
- All you can eat Private Pre-scare Boofet dinner

That’s right. You could buy your own ticket and wander around, aimlessly from line to line, starving to death from hunger, without a single person to hang out with. OR, you could pay one simple price and get an entire night of food, entertainment, VIP treatment, friends, frights, and fun.
Tickets sell out quickly so get yours today!
Guests will enter what appears to be an old theatre and begin the maze.
Trapped: The New Experiment
Double the size and capacity of last years successful up-charge maze, Trapped: The New Experiment will demand even more of those who dare to enter. Trapping guests in one mind bending, terrifying puzzle after the next, Trapped will push the envelope once again in haunted entertainment.
Wonderfully macabre and creepy, the Pinocchio unstrung maze is now under construction in the Wilderness Dance Hall
Summer Saying Goodbye
This past weekend was the last chance to catch the wonderful Snoopy Unleashed ice shot at the Charles M. Schultz Theatre. The park was packed with folks saying farewell to the Summer entertainment offerings.
Rumors are swirling around the fate of Windseeker. While the state battles with Knott’s on how this rather tame thrill ride meets state safety standards, it is being debated whether or not the ride should remain at the farm or perhaps be moved to a park out of state. If a solution cannot be found, this 301ft tall attraction may end up at another Cedar Fair park.
Landscaping Filling In
Since there won’t be a Dia De Los Muertos maze in the bumper car spot this year, they have taken the opportunity to do some planting.
Over behind the Coasters Restaurant, more landscaping is really taking hold. These are minor things, true, but they add up to so much more in raising the overall good feeling at the park.
Over near Silver bullet, the expensive New Guinea Impatiens are are bright and lovely.
New Skip-the-line game
Speaking of Silver Bullet, there appears to be a new game of luck perched at the front of the queue for this attraction.
For $3.00 guests can spin the wheel of luck and win any number of fabulous prizes. (Not affiliated in any way with The Price is Right, Wheel Of Fortune, of Bob Gurr’s Wheel of Years) Of course the big draw is the chance to skip the line. But if you don’t land that we hear the cotton candy is pretty good.
What do you think? Fun opportunity to line jump and win prizes, or cheesy cash grab?
And that about wraps things up for the Knott’s update today. This will be a huge week of news for In the Parks so keep checking the site. Also, don’t forget to grab your tickets to the MiceChat Haunt meet TODAY, before they run out. Have a great week and we will see you in the fog!
