As usual, Knotts Scary Farm unleashes its ghouls after the park rolls up its daytime carpet each night; entrance requires a separate admission. Although prices have yet to be announced, they will probably be a dollar or two more than last year's prices: $34-51 for pre-sale online or by phone; $51 for walk-up presale; and $57 on the day of the event. Watch out for discount coupons from Burger King.
For families who want to enjoy a little Halloween fun with their children, Knotts Berry Farm offers Snoopy's Costume Party during daylight hours on weekends in October.
