Knott’s Spooky Farm Review

You may have heard of Knott’s Scary Farm and although that is fun. But Knott’s Spooky Farm is something different as a Halloween treat for!! We went a few years ago, my kids wore costumes and had a blast!

This year they opted for Halloween shirts and met a few friends there too. As always they have the park fully decorated, have a fun maze, lots of fun activities in “the barn”, trick or treating, “spooky” characters, and also have special shows for the season too.

The stables transforms into a place where you can see and pet horses into a fun area. Filled with coloring, hay bales, games, painting pumpkins, and classic Peanuts movies playing in the corner.

What is the difference between Knotts scary farm and Spooky farm?

Scary farm is at night and more for older teens and adults. If you have younger children who want to go to Knotts in their costume during Halloween you should take them during the day which is spooky farm. A tamer time, still fun, but not scary for younger kids.

Can a 12 year old go to Knott’s Scary Farm?

Yes but recently Knotts has changed their policy on minors attending alone. Currently kids under 15 must be accompanied by an adult inside the park.

Can I take my 8 year old to Knotts Scary Farm?

I would recommend for ages 3-11 go during the day to their less scary event known as Knotts spooky farm. It still has a Halloween theme but not people jumping out to scare them so it is more appropriate for younger ages.

What Knott's Spooky Farm is all about, their all day dining pass, and a deal to visit Knott's Berry Farm all year too. Such a fun place.

What else….well did you know Knott’s Berry Farm offers ALL DAY dining??!! We did this on our last 2 visits and there are TONS of options + you can eat up to every 90 minutes for just one price per person…perfect when you are staying all day.

Don’t forget to visit the graveyard before leaving Knott’s Spooky Farm either! Feel for the knocking down below at this grave site….is he trying to get out??? 😉
