2016 Knott's Scary Farm Announcement Event!

Postby ILoveRides » Fri Aug 26, 2016 7:56 am

Last night Knott’s Berry Farm held their annual Scary Farm Announcement Event where they revealed all the exciting things that we can expect at Knott’s Scary Farm this year. There are some cool new additions coming to Scary Farm for 2016 so check out our full report below to learn everything that’s in store for this year’s Scary Farm!
We’re at Knott’s for their annual Scary Farm Announcement Event! We can’t wait to see what’s in store for Scary Farm this year!
Inside the Charles M. Schulz Theatre several monsters appeared on stage and introduced the host of the event...
The always-hilarious Jeff Tucker!
Great news for Elvira fans! Elvira is back this year with a new show...
“Elvira’s Danse Macabre” will feature dance and comedy performances, transporting guests to a masquerade ball full of music, dance, and humor.
It wouldn’t be Scary Farm without The Hanging!
This year’s show is titled “The Hanging: Finding Gory,” and will feature all the pop culture humor, special effects, pyrotechnics, and stunts we’ve come to expect from The Hanging, but on an all-new stage!
Next lets take a look at this year’s scare zones!
Fiesta De Los Muertos fuses dance music, colorful costumes, and larger than life stilt walkers in a dance party scare zone.
The Boardwalk will once again be overrun by clowns for the CarnEVIL scare zone.
This year’s brand new scare zone is The Hollow!
From within the fog, the legendary Headless Horseman and his army of the undead are ready to unleash a reign of terror in the new scare zone, The Hollow.
Guests entering the frightful 6-acre area will be terrorized by the souls of fallen soldiers and local farmers that have escaped their shallow graves.
Ghost Town Streets, the original scare zone and my personal favorite, returns as well!
Now the returning mazes...
Scary Farm designers Jon Cooke, Daniel Miller, and Gus Krueger came on stage to introduce the mazes.
Tooth Fairy is returning! Effects include a blackout room through which guests must feel their way out, a disorienting x-ray strobe light room, and a final encounter with the massive tooth fairy himself.
Voodoo returns as Voodoo - Order of the Serpent! The haunting legend of Papa Legba continues as guests follow him on his journey to conjure the serpent demon goddess in the outskirts of New Orleans.
Trick-or-Treat returns! Once again you can ring the Green Witch’s doorbell. Her and her Tricksters are waiting!
The Dead of Winter: Wendigo’s Revenge will have 4 new rooms and a new facade. The treacherous snow queen has been usurped by her evil minion, the horrific wendigo, who has seized control of her throne and is ready to prey upon unsuspecting visitors who enter the icy domain.
The Gunslinger’s Grave: A Blood Moon Rises is back. Walk in the bloody footsteps of a betrayed and left for dead gunslinger on his path of retribution against the Skinwalkers.
The standout hit from last year, Paranormal, INC. - The Haunting of Hayden Hill returns as well! Featuring high flying aerial stunts and scares, guests investigate a haunted hospital where the patients were tortured for decades by deranged doctors and nurses.
For the first time this year, the Skeleton Key Rooms will be standalone rooms that are independent from mazes. The four Skeleton Key Rooms will each feature a unique story and theme. Lets check out the 4 rooms...
First up, Visions. Guests must investigate the Green Witch Museum in Ghost Town where it is not the building that is haunted, but the various items contained within. Using a Phantom Finder augmented reality device, guests will be able to identify and witness paranormal activity connected to items from the Sarah Marshall Witch Trial.
In Slasher guests are invited to step into an 80’s slasher horror film. The masked Angel Maker Killer is on the loose. Every lead has run cold and that’s when you step into the picture. Will you become his next victim?
Next up, ZOZO. People from all over the world claim to have been visited by the demon ZOZO after a spirit board session. Is the demonic entity known as ZOZO real or are spirit boards just a myth?
The fourth Skeleton Key Room is Prey. In Prey you’ll navigate a hay maze full of dead ends with only a faulty lantern as your guide. And you are not alone - mutant beasts are lurking around every corner.
Finally, here are the new mazes for this year! First up, Black Ops: Infected. Armed with cutting edge laser guns, brave guests will face off against hordes of zombies in the groundbreaking all-new Black Ops: Infected interactive maze. Small units of guests will battle the zombie apocalypse through blood soaked city streets and an underground sewer system crawling with nearly one hundred ravenous zombies. The high tech innovative experience thrusts guests into the middle of a live-action video game complete with live actors, real time scoring system, kill streak rewards system and interactive targets, including a juggernaut boss zombie. The new attraction is one of the largest mazes ever created in Knott’s Scary Farm history, and it will no longer be located in Camp Snoopy as the previous renditions of Black Ops were.
Also new is Shadow Lands...
A fulfilling life ensures a soul safe passage into eternity, but what happens to the souls of soldiers slain in battle? Enter the hair-raising Shadow Lands maze and fight off demon samurais whose souls are cursed to rot within the depths of purgatory. Guests will embark on a quest through a sacred shrine, an ancient Japanese temple and into the midst of the shadow lands.
Finally, in The Red Barn maze you’ll take a trip to a blood-soaked barn filled with carnivorous animals seeking to prey on human flesh. Legend has it the farmer who owns the barn was transformed into a heinous creature that sends his sadistic sons to ensure his legacy. None dare enter the barn, for those who enter never escape.
After the show Knott’s put on a reception for media with yummy food...
Cool decorations...
And awesome desserts!
Monsters were roaming through the crowd!
Spears had a great time at the event!
Thanks to Knott’s for putting on such a cool event, and thanks to you for checking out our report! We're really excited for Scary Farm 2016 - it's almost here!
Knott’s Scary Farm runs Sept 22 - Oct 31, don’t miss it!

I have always wanted to make the trip out to Knott's for their event. Pictures from the event look fantastic. I can't wait for all of the haunts to start posting from their respective parks.

^I would assume so, since they weren't mentioned as returning.

I'm most intrigued by the Skeleton Key rooms this year. When they had that small mirror maze a few years back, I thought it was fun but just didn't work as a full maze d/t the low capacity. I'm hoping the skeleton key experiences will be 4 things that can match that! Having a scare zone in Camp Snoopy again is great too---the park is full loop again!

The skeleton key rooms sound intriguing. I haven't been to Scary Farm since 2001, and I'd really like to visit it again someday.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Wow, three new mazes! I did like the three that are going away this year, but I'm always so impressed with Knott's for changing it up so much every year. I had a killer time last year, wish I could make it again this year but I have friends who will fill me in. Awesome TR!

I'm really glad they're continuing another zombie shooting maze, it was so much fun last year. I loved it in Camp Snoopy, but this new one should be awesome as well! Does anyone know where it's going to be?
