    The buffet looked great. Where is it? How much does it cost? Is it included with your ticket?

    There's no Trick or Treat bag or candy given out at this event. Trick or Treat is a Brand New Maze for 2012.

    I think Windseeker will still stay close for months.

    I believe there is but they are not giving out candy. It's a couple items you collect like a shot glass and more that add up to about the same price as buying the bag.

    We were there opening night for the 9:00PM show. Donít waste your time on this show unless, you like to see people bullied.
    It's also difficult to determine what in the show is acting and what's real. I saw pushing of people and taking of churros.

    BTW, the tricksters took my wifeís map away and tore it up.
    Talked to security about it but, they said there was nothing they could do.

    I saw the Tricksters out and about. Luckily they left us alone. The Trick Or Treat bags are $10. You get a nylon backpack that says "40th Haunt" and a random mask that the Atricksters made me put on inside Trick or Treat maze. I ended up with the vampire lady mask and my husband one of the pumpkins. Then there are three trick or treat stands 2 before the maze and 1 after where you take your mask and say Trick or Treat they stamp the back of it and you get a deck of 40th Haunt playing cards, a 40th Haunt keychain ($5) for the keychain, and a skull 40th Haunt shot glass. I think that is so worth the value instead of candy etc. I'm hoping they still have some left come Oct 21st when I go back so I can get another for a friend of mine who loves Halloween. They have a limited number and when they are sold out they are sold out. I did NOT see many being sold the first weekend.

    Didn't the name "Tricksters" give anybody a clue? I think it's kind of funny that guests are complaining that a Trickster took away something they got for free, and that is available all over the park. They also set fire to the hotel in Ghost Town. I heard they punched a baby, too.

    Trick or treat, y'all.

    I think this boils down to a difference in preference. Yes, Knotts' talent move in the maze and yes Universal's stay put and do the same thing. However, I like Universal more because of the exact same distinction that leads you to like Knotts more.

    To me, there is nothing scary about a person in a mask following me making noises. It just doesn't do it, I am not scarred. However, I am terrified to the bone when an unknown person/shape/object leaps at me from behind a corner or anywhere else. Shock scares scare me, environmental scares do it more for you. This is why I will always favor Universal, as their mazes are more geared towards what gets me.
    Disneyland Wooooh!

    The Trick or Treat bag sold near the queue for the Trick or Treat maze is totally worthwhile. The tchotchkes are cool, but it's that Knott's-exclusive mask that's so incredible. There are five designs available and each one is based on one of the Trickster characters within the maze. I've got the pumpkin head and vampiress so far, but still want to get my hands on the black cat mask.

    Our buffet was just $16 when we added it to our admission in a combo ticket purchases on line. We loved the food, were impressed by how quickly the lines moved, and we enjoyed roaming the monster filled streets at 6:40--20 minutes before the event opened to the public.

    In past years Burger King had Knott's Scary Farm discount coupons, but I haven't seen any sign of them . . . yet.

    AAA offers discounts via: aaa.com/discounts or knotts.com/aaa .

    I just realized I could have made several delicious roast beef, chicken, and turkey sandwiches on dinner rolls and taken them into the park for an 11pm snack. Next year.

    Very clever idea! I definitely will do the same thing next year as long as I bring my backpack. Thanks

    Being an El Camino College student, I can get discounted tickets from the ASB department. They're about $10 off. I'm definitely getting one for October 4th, with Elvira. Hope it isn't sold out!

    JerodDragon Universal is very pricey. We are going tomorrow night with Front of the Lines. Tonight was SOLD out. That's the problem with Universal. They sell out and they really need more to see and do to keep the crowd and lines down. Now Knott's is very affordable. For both me and my husband we were able to buy our Haunt tickets plus the Prescare boo-fet for the price of ONE Universal Horror Nights Front of the Line pass.

    It seemed in previous years Universal has won out on Knott's but this year Knott's is definitely the winner. With all the rides, multiple shows, and mazes the lines aren't as horrible as Universal. Why this year we are squeezing in one more Knott's Haunt trip instead of the majority of trips to Universal.
