Knott's Spooky Farm Rating
Hollywood Gothique Says:
Looking for a family-friendly way to enjoy Halloween? Knotts Spooky Farm offers a daytime alternative to the nightly Knott’s Berry Farm Halloween Haunt, with entertainment aimed at children ages 3 through 11. Though scares are non-existent, the Halloween ambiance is very much in evidence. The main audience for the event is families with children, but adult haunt-seekers may appreciate the opportunity to see Knott’s Scary Farm’s copious Halloween decor illuminated in full daylight instead of hidden in darkness and fog.

Knott’s Spooky Farm History
After years of presenting Camp Spooky – a kid-safe alternative to Knotts Scary Farm, set in Camp Spooky – in 2015 Knott’s Berry Farm expanded their daytime activities, rebranding the event as Knott’s Spooky Farm. This family-friendly Halloween fun is recommended for children aged 3 through 11, who are encouraged to dress up and attend the Spooky Hollow Maze, the Ghastly Gallery, Monsterpiece Theatre, Dia de los Muertos in the Fiesta Village, and “The Monsters Are Coming, Charlie Brown,” a mini-musical featuring the Peanuts Gang.
Knott’s Spooky Farm was replaced during the 2020 pandemic by Knott’s Taste of Fall O’Ween. It returned in 2021.
